Weddings & Events at Brookside:

What is the difference between the Elopement and Intimate Wedding Packages you offer?

The Elopement Package includes a ceremony with just the couple being married. It’s perfect for those who want a private, personal ceremony without all of the expense and fuss of a larger event. It truly is for elopements! The Intimate Wedding Package is for those wanting a few friends and family with them to celebrate their special day.

How many people can I have at my Intimate Wedding?

We specialize in providing small weddings with no more than 20 people, including the couple being married.

Can I have a wedding at Brookside without renting all of the rooms?

Yes, but only for an Elopement wedding. Due to our small size, an Intimate wedding would be too intrusive and disruptive to others staying at the Inn. By booking the entire Inn, you have much more flexibility regarding the structure, timing and content of your special day.

What is the cost of a wedding at Brookside?

Our Elopement Package starts at only $550-$650 and our Intimate Wedding Packages start at $2,330-$2930, depending on the time of year. Also, we have amenities and services that can be added to enhance your special day. See our wedding page for more details.

Can I arrange a small gathering for an event other than a wedding at Brookside?

Absolutely! We can host small parties for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, bridal showers, group luncheons, etc. The price for these events varies based on what amenities and services are requested.

Please call us at 828-452-6880 so we can discuss your options and make your event perfect for you and your group.
