The Early Inn was the perfect location for our wedding on 4/3/21. My husband and I are originally from Franklin County and knew the Early Inn was the perfect venue for our wedding. The Early Inn has beautiful historical architecture and red shutters that created the most scenic setting for our wedding weekend. Big thanks to Toni venue manager, Bryan the venue owner, Chef Agnes, Amy and all the staff at the Early Inn. Toni, coordinated the vendors flawlessly, truly making the wedding planning stress free. Bryan, Chef Agnes, and Amy coordinated the vendors day of the wedding and the experience was truly perfect. We had the entire Inn for the weekend that created a relaxed experience without having to rush the day of the wedding. We had the best food, drinks and hospitality that made our wedding day above and beyond expectations. Thank you for making our dream wedding come true.
We stayed at the Early Inn one night to attend a concert at the Harvester, which was within easy walking distance. We stayed in the General’s room which was on the ground floor neat the kitchen and entry way, but was remarkably quiet, even though the inn was full. The room was outstanding with plenty of room, a comfy large bed, and private bath. We had our small dog and there was plenty of room to run her outside. The snacks and drinks were always available and tasty! Saturday morning breakfast was wonderful with eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, watermelon, juice, and coffee. The manager gave us a historical tour of the house and insight into the town and area. We highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again.
The property is beautiful, the accommodations are comfortable, and the whole place is easygoing. Agnes is helpful and her food is delicious! The history of the inn is remarkable and the decor is so charming
Was surprised when I saw the 5.0 rating because I don’t recall ever seeing such a high score when I do research for places to stay ~ especially with over 200 reviews. But now I see why they received such a high score! The inn is gorgeous, the people are extremely warm and friendly and Agnes, the chef, prepared a 10/10 breakfast for us, a feast for a king! Our room was huge (The General) and the bathroom floor heated. The bedsheets were like velvet and had a light, sweet scent. I am a foodie so I really like it when they have snacks available 24/7 …. and Early Inn had TONS of yummy food available.
