About the Wilburton Inn Wedding Venue

The Wilburton Inn is a truly special place – purchased on a whim by a couple who was having dinner there to celebrate a birthday, it’s still run by Albert and Georgette, along with their four children – and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who can be spotted around the inn and pitches in occasionally. 

The Wilburton Inn has been ranked in the top 10 hotels in Vermont, and as a bonus for dog-loving couples, it’s also known for being included in USA Today’s list of top 10 dog friendly hotels in New England – which means that when you get married here, you don’t have to leave your fur baby behind! The Wilburton has even been featured in the Puppy Bowl, and they host Doggie Slumber “paw-ties” three times a year.

The owners of the Wilburton want it to be a place for families to spend time together, and bringing people together is what weddings are all about – so when you tie the knot at the Wilburton Inn wedding venue, they’ll make sure you have everything you need for an absolutely perfect day.
