We had 18 months to plan our daughter's wedding. The first venue we visited was Cameron Estate Inn. The young couple immediately knew it was their location, and we booked it that day. Every single step of the process was documented, every request was responded to immediately, and every question was answered. The culmination was a family and friends weekend event that will be remembered forever. We had 165 guests at the ceremony and reception, and housed the bridal party, family and friends in the mansion. We filled every room, and it was the best decision we made. In the hustle and bustle of a wedding, we had time to visit during breakfast, the porch parties, lunch and dinner. Every detail was elegant, yet casual and relaxed. The feedback we have gotten from our guests has been wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about our experience at Cameron Estate Inn and our storybook wedding weekend. Thanks to Randy, John, Mary, Dakota and the rest of the staff for making our dreams come true.
My wedding on 9/12/15 could not have gone any more smoothly, and I owe a great deal of that to the staff at Cameron. Our wedding planner, Dakota, worked out every single detail with me in the days leading up to the wedding to make sure all of our wants and needs were met. Everything was executed perfectly on the big day. It rained, meaning that our guests did not get to enjoy the beautiful grounds and outdoor cocktail patio, but were still very impressed with the Carriage house where the reception was held. The venue is very clean and elegant. The staff are professional and the food is excellent. There are many different food and bar package options to work into your budget. Your guests will be impressed regardless of how much you choose. If you have a large wedding party and/or family, I highly recommend renting out the entire Inn as well. We were able to have an after party on the porch and breakfast (which was excellent) together in the morning as well. Perfect way to wind down after such an event. We could not have been happier!
My Wedding - The Cameron Estates InnReviewed on 2/13/2015 Kaitlyn T
Just recently on January 24th, 2015, I had my wedding at The Cameron Estates Inn, in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. I can't thank the venue enough for working so perfectly with out an of country "Bride" from Canada. Effective communication was the key to creating my dream wedding. Stacie one of the special events directors was always prompt at getting back to me. Which made my 3 month wedding planning, one that was very stress-free. Stacie is honestly born a natural when it comes to wedding planning. She is so personable, kind, and understanding. She will go above and beyond to ensure your wedding vision is everything you imagined and more. She does the best on her end, and to her ability to work with those on a budget. If you plan your wedding at the Cameron Estates Inn, I highly recommend suggesting Stacie to be your wedding coordinator. She genuinely cares about her brides happiness, that I was able to put my complete trust and confidence in her efforts and work (Now every bride-to-be will understand that is so important!) The entire staff was a pleasure to work with. Mary who works front desk is such a joy. They have their own on-site catering, and oh my goodness it was absolutely incredible!! We never had the time to do a food sampling, but our guest feedback has been amazing. Normally all weddings are beautiful, but you hear the food can be a flop. Well we had no food flops! The food was perfectly seasoned, cooked and fresh. The banquet manager is a gem. She also went above and beyond for her Bride and Groom that evening. She made sure we were taken care of, as well as our guest. Our guest from beginning to end were just as impressed and as pleased as we were. We are still receiving great feedback from our family and friends that attended the wedding on just how enjoyable that evening was for them. We look forward to making The Cameron Estates Inn a place we return yearly for our Anniversary. The website pictures are beautiful. But when you see the venue in person its even more beautiful, which you would think is not even possible. The rooms are STUNNING! If you are attending a wedding there or just in the local area. I highly recommend making the efforts to stay there! You will not be disappointed!
Wonderful beyond wordsReviewed on 10/27/2015 nicole m
The Cameron Estate Inn was an elegant and vintage getaway. We were so blessed to find the Estate for our wedding. Our wedding was so easy thanks to the help from everyone at the Cameron Estate Inn.
After touring many venues, we happily decided on the Cameron Estate Inn for an elegant yet country-style wedding. The staff worked cooperatively with us to help create all the special touches for our wedding day. I particularly looked forward to talking to Dakota and hearing her thoughts and opinions, for she was both kind and creative. After all the time planning and organizing, the Inn provided us with a smooth, fun, memorable day.
I had my wedding 8/8/15 at this venue and it was the best possible experience I could have ever hoped for! We knew (even seeing it only covered in snow while I was having a summer wedding) that I wanted to have my day here since I first visited. The owners and wedding coordinators were such a delight to work with. On the day itself, I had so much stress taken off me not having to wonder if everything was in place, etc. We rented the house the night before and night of the wedding and it was the best choice! We filled the rooms with close family and friends and enjoyed the evenings together. I recommend this venue to anyone I could as they are so deserving.
My husband and I had viewed several venues and the Estate had a casual elegant charm that caught our eye.We were drawn to the locaton for it's beautiful conservatory as a back up plan.We were thankful we did because of rain on our wedding day. Over more than a year, I had recieved fast responses by email and by phone. 3 months prior to our event we sat down and discussed meal plans, linens, etc with the wedding planner at the time Stacey, Leaving the meeting I was irritated by the "strict policies" that I had felt blind to. I was so thankful and grateful to have Dakota as her replacement. Dakota was compassionate and truely cared about my expectations for the wedding. She had done a great job tieing up loose ends and details that had not been communicated to her after Stacey's departure. Two weeks prior to my wedding, the chef had been warned that a guest had a allergy to shellfish. The chef had formulated a plan to avoid cross contamination. Dakota had taken to chance to greet me the morning of the rehearsal and had asked if there was anything I needed. I was floored to see her because all along I had been led to believe that the estates focus was on the Inn and Restaurant. She allowed us to set up some things in the Carriage house that day to alleviate some of the wedding day stress. She introduced me to Emily (reception coordinator). At that time I had taken note of a tripping hazard and had expressed my worry. Emily had it fixed by the next morning when I arrived. The wedding day was great just as we imagined ( minus the rain, but no one could control that) A mirror that the cake was mounted on had been left behind. I was told by the baker it needed to be replaced immediately. We live a good distance away so I reached out to Cameron to see if they would see the baker anytime soon. Randy personally returned the mirror himself to the baker's location. He saved me a headache, time and gas money! One obstacle I wish the Estate would help with would be to provide a staff member to guide the bride and bridesmaids to the ceremony locaton. It was a guessing game. There was an option but it was an extra charge. I feel that this should be included.The staff did a great job otherwise and our wedding day was wonderful thanks to Cameron Estate!
I got married at Cameron Estate Inn in September 2015 and our wedding was perfect. Cameron Estate has gorgeous locations (and a backup room that makes you want it to rain) and an incredibly helpful staff. There was some wedding coordinator turnover while we were there, but the owners did not let our wedding fall through the cracks. There was always someone we could contact and our questions always got answered. They now have a new wedding coordinator and she was phenomenal for the short time we worked with her. I would highly recommend this location to anyone - my wedding day was perfect.
Perfect day! When my fiance and I got engaged we visited several venues, Cameron was our first stop and we were both ready to book as soon as our tour ended. We decided to check out some other options but nothing compared, all in one deal, we booked Cameron the next day. What a great decision! First off, the grounds, carriage house, conservatory, and inn are beautiful! We were given endless compliments on how lovely our venue was by all of wedding guests. The planning process for our wedding was much easier than I had expected thanks to Cameron's staff. They provided us with a list of preferred vendors and the meetings with our planning coordinator were productive and left me feeling stress-free. The day turned out perfect! The staff were so accommodating and they vendors they suggested were fantastic! We can't say enough how wonderful a place Cameron is to have a wedding!
Cameron Estate Inn & grounds are stunningly breath taking.The buildings & Inn are beautiful, staff is excellent, attentive & very caring, kind, & tended to our every need. Meg hugged Mary when we left Sunday morning. Mary was just like family. The staff was professional & very sophisticated. Every employee was very kind and attentive. They know how to run a wedding with style & grace. The ambience of the estate is just breathtaking.Her wedding photos we enhanced by the grounds. We are in awe of the entire weekend of her July 25th 2015 wedding. Rachel took us through the event step by step at the beginning & Dakota continued to be right there to make everything happen that my daughter dreamed of. Dakota has a kind comforting ease about her. Kristin & her staff for the reception are wonderful & so efficient. They made the reception a classy event & they didn't skip a beat. Randy I wish I would have asked for his help more with choosing the food because he just knows what to choose for the special event. With that said I don't think you could choose anything food wise that would not be wonderful but he has a way of knowing what to put together for the event. Some of our guests said the vegetarian dinner looked absolutely wonderful & those who had this selection said it was scrumptious. The chef is to be commended for his talents.What he prepared was exquisite. My daughter knew as soon as we toured the place that this was meant to be her wedding of her dreams & we booked it the day we toured the estate. You just feel like you are in a different time & place in history.This place gives you a chance to escape to another time. This place was just perfect to carry out her dreams & visions. The out door wedding by the garden gazebo was so quaint and breath taking and where the cocktail hour was located our guests could look out over the grounds where the bridal party was having their photos taken. This was a very special time for our guest to be together and watch the bridal party. I remember sitting on the stone wall and just watching what all was happening and trying to take it all in. Just very special priceless moments. The reception was beautiful, the room just takes your breath away. Everything was just beautiful and perfect. Everything around the room had a special place and was displayed for all to see from the candy bar to the cake, the lighting and centerpieces. It was just what I envisioned and more. What they didn't tell us was how well everything would be packed up after the reception I was expecting to have to take things down that we had done the day before. I came back in after the sparkler send off and they had everything all packed up & ready to go. They are so incredibly proficient. We rented the inn for the night of the wedding it was so elegant and comforting & made our special day last longer. Every room in the Inn has a certain charm to it. Mary was so kind & gracious and she was there to take care of our guests & all of their needs. She went way above her job title. The porch party was so much fun and gave us a chance to be with the close part of the family & friends.The breakfast the next morning was elegant & charming with so many exquisite & tastefully prepared choices with a breathtaking view with sunlight streaming through the windows. I saw many of out guest the next morning strolling the ground and drinking coffee and just enjoy every moment. Just a weekend to remember.
This venue was absolutely gorgeous! Everyone was so helpful. We chose to do the rehearsal dinner at Cameron Estate Inn and we're pleased with the overall quality and price of dinner. Would recommend Cameron Estate Inn to anyone!
From the minute I saw the grounds at the Cameron Estate Inn, I knew I wanted to have my ceremony and reception there. The grounds are beautiful!!! I absolutely loved working with Dakota, Mary and Emily. They go above and beyond to make your wedding a day to remember for a lifetime!! I can't thank them enough!! Our wedding was amazing and our guests raved about the grounds, the service and the staff. Everyone was highly impressed with the Cameron Estate Inn!! I highly recommend having your wedding or a special event held at the Inn. You will not be disappointed!! My husband and I are looking forward to spending our first anniversary in a room at the Inn.
We were looking for a venue that included ceremony and reception location with a package for an intimate ceremony. Their Elopment package was perfect, from start to finish the process was a pleasure. we had our wedding on a Tuesday at 3pm with only 8 people in attendance. They made my day very special, my husband and I together with our family was very happy that we picked Cameron Estate Inn.
We had the best experience at Cameron Estate not to mention beautiful locations. The staff and coordinators made a huge impacted in making it wonderful. My compliments to the chef.
I had my wedding at Cameron Estate Inn two weeks ago (5/24/15) and it was my dream wedding in every way! We rented the entire Inn for the wedding party and immediate family to stay in for the weekend. We also had our rehearsal dinner here, which was very beautiful and convenient. Through out the year I was planning the wedding, the coordinators at the Inn were wonderful about answering my calls/emails quickly and giving me helpful information and feedback. I was a little anxious at first because you only get 5 hours of complimentary planning time from the coordinators, but it was plenty! The coordinators had wonderful ideas and were honest when giving feedback to our ideas and questions. Our wedding day was so beautiful and well organized thanks to the Cameron Estate Inn! They were very flexible and were able to accommodate our requests with no trouble, such as moving tables, adding tables, making sure the DJ and photographers were fed, and even helping Inn guests the day of the wedding! Our food for the rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, and the reception were amazing! We had guests coming up to us the entire evening saying how much they loved the food. The reason I gave 4.5 stars on quality of service is because it would have been helpful if a coordinator had been present at the rehearsal and when the ceremony started as there was some confusion, but we worked it out! Having our wedding at the Cameron Estate Inn was one of the best decisions we made for our special day. We looked back and couldn't think of a single thing we wished had happened or didn't happen and we couldn't think of anything! We still have guests contacting us asking how we found such a wonderful location and telling us how beautiful and perfect it was. Thanks Cameron Estate Inn! We look forward to coming back to celebrate our anniversary with you!
Our wedding weekendReviewed on 1/13/2015 nicole k
I am so happy that we choose Cameron Estate Inn as our wedding venue. There is nothing that I would change about our magical weekend. We decided to rent the Inn for the weekend. Which made for a fun, elegant, and romantic wedding weekend. We were able to have our closet friends and family stay with us the entire weekend. I still to this day, have people tell me that it was one of the best weekends they have ever had. The food was delicious, we had breakfast daily on the sunporch, lunch was provided the day of the wedding, and we had our Rehearsal dinner and of course the Reception meal there. (that was the package we choose, so worth it!!) I don't have a single complaint about any of the food. We decided to get married at the Donegal Springs location. It was so beautiful, peaceful and simple. We had many people from out of state, and they could not get over the beauty of the grounds. I wish I could do it all over again. Rachel was the best at communicating, and her patience makes her a pleasure to work with. The best part is we can go back in the years to come and stay at the Inn to celebrate anniversaries and relive that magical weekend.
The Perfect VenueReviewed on 1/13/2015
I recently got married at Cameron Estate Inn and it was more than I could have imagined! Everything was perfect and went off without a hitch. This is thanks in part to Rachel and the staff at Cameron estate Inn. They were very helpful from the day we toured the location. Rachel helped in planning the meal options to maximize the food we got with the cost we paid. She helped ease the stress of the day by checking in and seeing what she could do to help. The location is also absolutely perfect and was just what we dreamed of for our outdoor wedding ceremony with the reception following inside! It was fabulous!
Perfect Wedding at Cameron EstatesReviewed on 12/31/2014 Crystal G
My husband and I were so happy with the service and quality at Cameron Estates. Guests were in awe of the beautiful property, Cameron was easy to work with, and overall we felt the money spent on their facility and food was very worth it. We felt we had our perfect wedding!
Dream Location!Reviewed on 12/27/2014 Jayleen G
The Cameron Estate Inn served as such a beautiful setting for our winter wedding. Not only were the staff helpful during the entire planning process, but the Inn truly offered a romantic and classic atmosphere for our special day.
Cameron Estate InnReviewed on 11/30/2014
Rachel and her team were wonderful from our first meeting. They are well organized and make the process of planning your dream day easy and stress free. They were very accommodating to our vendors and guests. We heard so many compliments about the venue and staff throughout the day. This is such a beautiful location, that the rainy day did not matter. Pictures are gorgeous! I cannot say enough positive things about Cameron Estate.
Cameron Estate Inn was amazing!Reviewed on 10/20/2014 Shannon G
One stop for all our wedding needs. Inn for guests, wedding ceremony site (Spring Garden is so beautiful!), and reception site all at one location. We rented out the entire Inn, which was a great decision for our family and friends. Cameron Estate Inn is the perfect mix of elegance and comfort. We had a lovely wedding weekend = Perfect!
I fell in love with Cameron Estate before I even met my groom...Reviewed on 10/15/2014 Patty B
I got married at Cameron Estate a little over a month ago, and my wedding was exactly what I had dreamed of – a simple yet very elegant and romantic event. I went to a wedding at Cameron Estate about four years ago, and I immediately fell in love with the place. I told myself that if I were ever to get married, I would want to have my ceremony and reception there. In other words, I found my venue before I met my groom! When my partner proposed last Christmas, I told him that I already had a venue selected for our wedding. In his mind, he thought I was being funny and he believed we would be checking out a few venues before finding the right place. However, after our first visit together to Cameron Estate, my groom was sold. Not only he agreed that the place was gorgeous – despite the fact the grounds were covered by snow - he was also very excited about the convenient and affordable wedding package that Cameron Estate offered to us. I still can’t believe that I was able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony, followed by cocktails (yes, alcohol was included!), followed by a delicious and elegant dinner at the Inn’s Restaurant…all for a very reasonable price! Our ceremony was at the Spring Garden, and all I had in terms of flowers were my bouquet, a dozens of Gerber daisies at the altar and boutonnières for the groom and best men. All the nature around the garden is so pretty and photogenic that we didn’t need to spend a lot of money on flowers. All the set-up and cleanup was done by their staff, and everything looked well organized, classy, and clean, exactly as planned (following all the details agreed upon on my bridal form). During the planning process, we worked with Rachel who was consistently responsive and very professional in our communications. She truly answered any questions or concerns I had along the way. Honestly, my wedding took very little work on my part and, overall, it was a hassle-free event – from planning to execution. I would, wholeheartedly, recommend Cameron Estate to anyone hoping for a dreamy, stress-free wedding in our beautiful and bucolic Lancaster County.
Cameron Estate Inn: A Beautiful VenueReviewed on 10/13/2014 Ashley W
My husband and I got married this past May. In the months building up to the wedding, we found the Cameron Estate staff to be extremely helpful and flexible. Rachel, the director of special events, facilitated our planning sessions. She was accommodating and helped us to find meeting times that fit around our busy school schedules. I left those meetings feeling informed, prepared, and important to the Cameron Estate staff. On the day of the wedding, however, I was not thrilled with how I was treated when I first got to the estate to get ready. When my bridesmaids, mom, and I approached the front desk to be given the key to our changing room, we were told to wait as they made multiple (public) phone calls to solve a mysterious electrical power outage in the reception hall – the same reception hall that was supposed to house nearly 200 of my guests in a matter of hours! Of course, I understand that these things happen. BUT, I didn’t appreciate being informed of the issue in such a flippant way – as if I hadn’t invested thousands of dollars in their facility for my event. Needless to say, my pre-wedding jitters were heightened upon arrival! I found out a while later that the issue was resolved… thank goodness! Despite the rocky start, I was thoroughly impressed and delighted with how the rest of the day turned out. First of all, the spring garden ceremony site was absolutely stunning! I’ve wanted an outdoor wedding since I was a little girl, and I couldn’t have asked for a prettier spot. The grounds were well-manicured and lusciously green – PERFECT for photos! Many of my guests had nice things to say about the cocktail hour, and the food (Dijon chicken and tilapia) was yummy. I was most impressed with the dinner service. The staff is clearly well-trained and kept the dinner courses coming and going smoothly. The day-of coordinator that Cameron Estate facilitated (I can’t remember her name!) was wonderful too. My husband and I were too busy with photos during the cocktail hour to get a drink. Even though we elected to end our bar service at the start of dinner, the coordinator went out of her way to get us drinks to go with our meal. How thoughtful! I would definitely recommend Cameron Estate Inn to brides who are looking for an easier planning experience. I appreciated the time that Rachel spent with us in the year leading up to our big day, as well as all of the planning materials that were given to me so that I could stay organized and on top of things. And, I loved the all-inclusiveness. Cameron Estate is a gorgeous venue, has great caterers, and lent my husband and me a romantic place to spend our wedding night! What more could you ask for?!
Cozy AtmosphereReviewed on 10/10/2014 Amber G
When looking for my wedding venue, I didn't want to pick a typical ballroom or country club environment. The search led me about 2 hours away from my home to Lancaster and the beauty of the grounds at Cameron Estate Inn won me over immediately. Rachel is great to work with, very pleasant and knowledgeable. We rented the inn for the weekend and our family and bridal party had a great time. Room rates are a bit expensive, but people didn't seem to mind for the opportunity to get away. We were married in the conservatory and it is simply gorgeous. Dinner was good, service was efficient and great. We had the time of our lives.
Unforgettable Wedding Weekend!!Reviewed on 10/06/2014 Whitney D
My husband and I recently got married at Cameron Estate and had an amazing wedding weekend there. We rented out the entire inn for all of our friends and family and we're so glad we did. It really made it a fun and intimate experience and was nice not having to worry about other people staying there that we didn't know. The entire planning process with Cameron Estate was very organized from the beginning. Rachel always responded promptly to our emails and thoroughly answered any questions/concerns that we had. There are several forms they provide you with throughout the planning process, but it makes it easier and less stressful because you are able to see exactly what you need to fill out and by what dates, etc. We were a little concerned about all of the strict policies and rules Cameron Estate has, but we had no issues with them whatsoever during our wedding weekend. The staff was very nice and accommodating to our guests. Mary was especially warm and welcoming to all of us as soon as everyone had arrived at the inn. Our ceremony was in the conservatory and it was beautiful. There are also several other ceremony locations throughout the property that you can choose from. The banquet manager made sure my husband and I were taken care of during the reception. The food was outstanding and the service was fast. We took advantage of the concierge package since we rented out the entire inn and we absolutely loved it. It was nice having drinks and snacks out for our guests to enjoy throughout the weekend. Many of our guests also commented on how delicious the breakfasts were. If you are interested in Cameron Estate as your wedding venue, I suggest you reserve your date early, as they book up quickly for weddings. We definitely recommend spending the money to reserve the entire inn for your friends and family. All of the rooms are gorgeous, but some of the third floor rooms could use some updating. It's a beautiful venue and you will get amazing pictures! We loved our experience with Cameron Estate Inn and plan to stay there again in the future!!
