Plan an Event
With it’s elegant and inviting public spaces and extensive private gardens, The Methow Valley Inn is the perfect spot for hosting events. Whether it is a small wedding, family reunion, community dinner or a business retreat, the Inn offers the atmosphere and amenities to ensure a unique and special experience with friends, family or colleagues.
The Inn is ideally suited for events involving up to 60 or so guests in either an indoor or outdoor setting. During the snowy winter months, after gathering in front of the crackling fire in the living room, the sunroom and dining room can be configured to provide either elegant sit down dining or a casual buffet supper. In the lovely Methow Valley summer and fall months, the garden courtyard under the 100 year old silver maple provides a beautiful, natural setting for gathering and celebrating special occasions.
Weddings: For weddings, the historic Inn provides a unique setting. At the Inn, friends and family are able to both formally and informally gather together to form or deepen connections. At the same time, the building and grounds provide many private, get away nooks and spots needed to take time to pause and reflect on the significance of the event. This balance makes the Inn a very special place.
In addition to the two night (minimum) Inn rental, there will typically be a fee of $1000 for use of the Inn venue for up to 60 wedding guests. The fee includes the use of the Inn as the wedding site, including the 1st floor public spaces, courtyard and gardens; two guest bathrooms; and an Inn staff person on site for the event.
Use of a caterer is strongly recommended and there are several wonderful, local caterers who are familiar with both the Inn kitchen and the local resources needed to make the perfect day. We recommend wholeheartedly: Sunflower Catering; Stewart Dietz Catering; and Cameron Greene Catering at email@example.com.
Mid-week Inn Event Rental: When the Inn is not otherwise booked by groups, the Inn may be rented on a “turn-key” basis for catered dinner events for up to 30-35 guests for a fee of $250. For gatherings for up to 50 guests, the fee is $350. Please see links to local caterers, above.
Other Events: For other events like catered dinners or parties, that involve more people than are booked to stay in the Inn, the event charge will vary with the type and size of the event and can be discussed with the Inn owners at firstname.lastname@example.org. Typically dinners for up to 30 require a $250 event fee; up to 50 guests would be $350. That fee includes the use of Inn dishes, service and glassware; use of the back commercial kitchen and dishwasher; cleaning costs; an Inn staff person on site; and disposal of garbage and recyclables. As with weddings, we would strongly encourage the use of a caterer who can ensure your event runs smoothly for yourself and your guests – see recommendations above.
