We can help you create a small intimate wedding or special event on the grounds of the Idlwilde Inn. Take over all 15 rooms or just one. Packages are determined based on room reservations and size of your event. Please call for possibilities and pricing.

Affordable, Comfortable & Elegant Weddings

Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for your interest in holding your wedding here at the Idlwilde Inn. We offer a comfortable atmosphere in our guest rooms, garden, gazebo, and venues that not only celebrates the history of our property, but also the history and beauty of our beautiful little village of Watkins Glen.

All our events are customized for each Bride’s (and Groom’s!) needs, so we would love to meet with you & talk about your specific needs.

To make your day at our Finger Lakes Wedding Venue extra special, add a romantic package or enhancement for the perfect Watkins Glen getaway.
