Liz and Greg's Wedding

We had the perfect wedding at a beautiful spot. August weddings in the Washington area can be dicey because of the weather, but we lucked out with a great day. We highly recommend Mt. Vernon because it's nice and tranquil but close to the city

Bob did a great job getting everyone to dance early -- and they stayed on the floor all night!

Friendly staff was very helpful setting up our room block. Close to the Metro (good for guests who wanted to be close to the city), but a ways from Mt. Vernon.

Great hotel right across the street from the Metro -- and so close to Old Town. There's even a free shuttle along King Street for your guests.

Reception Sites

The Inn decorates itself -- so you don't have to spend much on flowers or decorations. The food was excellent -- and they had plenty, so you don't need to worry about headcounts. The wait staff pushes the alcohol. This made for a full dance floor, but it also made for a high bar tab.

Good location. You have to order your own chairs, but they have a preferred vendor. There isn't much scenery out back, but the patio was a great. The Inn is fully air conditioned, so no need to worry about the heat during the summer.
