Whether it be an intimate rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception; The Merrill Magee is honored to offer our historic inn and gardens as the setting for this important life event. We are proud to have hosted many intimate Adirondack weddings and receptions. Some couples choose to get married here at the inn. Others select one of the local churches. Some opt for a beautiful outdoor ceremony amid our butterfly gardens, then stroll to the restaurant for the celebration.
Our Culinary staff can customize a variety of Wedding Reception menus, whether they be formal plated dinners, buffet dinners, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails or the traditional cake and champagne reception. We can tailor your selections and service for a more formal or casual celebration, as you prefer. Beautiful and unique wedding cakes are our specialty!
We can accommodate up to 150 invited guests for outdoor events and up to 130 guests for indoor only events, dependent upon type of service desired.

Wedding Accommodations FAQs
Because we are a small inn of only 9 rooms, we do not offer a room block, or block rooms.
We offer two options.
1) You and your guests may book rooms as regular reservations; all our usual reservation policies strictly apply unless you rent the entire guesthouse.
2) You may rent the entire guesthouse. You can pay for it yourself or your guests may book and pay for their own rooms. This requires a deposit and a signed rental agreement. See Sample Agreement
We do not offer discount rates. Shop around and you will see that our room rates are a great value & are already priced lower than most others in the area (even with their discount), for what the Merrill Magee has to offer.
With a house rental, you may have children stay and additional visitors in. Such as for wedding prep; hair, makeup, attendants, photographer, Aunt Betty, etc. A rental offers a beautiful, private locale for you & wedding attendants to get ready. Excitement is in the air & you have use of the entire house & grounds without other non-related guests around. Use of the house & grounds for photography. Or simply to just have a relaxing, private place to hang with family & friends.
No. We are a small quiet guesthouse and are known for providing a tranquil experience for our guests. Would you really be comfortable trying to stay quiet, while getting ready for such an exciting day? All of our usual reservation policies strictly apply unless you rent the entire guesthouse.
No. Many guests actually book with us to take a break from children. For the record, we think children are great, just not in the guesthouse with other non-related guests. All our usual reservation policies strictly apply unless you rent the entire guesthouse.
You have a few different options. You are welcome to pay for everyone’s accommodations, a few, or none. Additionally, you can also choose to subsidize a partial amount of your guest’s rooms.
Check-in starts at 3 p.m. Checkout is at 11 a.m. You are welcome to request early check-in on your reservation; however, this is not guaranteed and is often dependent on the guest staying prior to your arrival. Please plan accordingly.
We would be happy to, prior to 5pm. To have us hand out gift bags or place them in the rooms, we need them 24 hours prior to check-in.
