Thank you for considering the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat for your next event!
For those seeking an outstanding location for a memorable wedding for up to 35 guests, the Arch Cape Inn is an ideal choice. We specialize in offering warmth and hospitality not readily found today that allows family and friends to gather in a relaxed atmosphere for your wedding. Together we will help you experience a reception that will delight both you and your guests. Once you have reviewed the wedding information listed below, let us show you how we can help make your wedding a special and memorable one and why a magical setting, caring service, and top quality are the attributes most often expressed by those whom we have served in the past. Our Wedding and Event Fees consist of three components — Lodging Rental, Facilities Use Fees and Catering Fees — all of which are described below.
We have 10 rooms which can accommodate up to 20 people. Most of our rooms have new Omaha mattresses, down quilts & pillows, and all have private baths. Most have fireplaces, and/or soaking tubs. The cost to reserve the rooms varies by day and season and is listed on our reservations page. A multi-course gourmet breakfast is included and is served to your guests each morning.
The Arch Cape Inn and Retreat Schedules Wedding and Events all year round. We require that the entire Inn (10 rooms) be rented for a 2 night minimum stay on weekends, with the exception of some Holidays which may require 3 nights. Single night events and renting less than the entire Inn is restricted to Sunday-Thursday nights.
Wedding and Reception Information
You may also have your wedding ceremony and reception at the Inn. We have a beautiful garden and large cedar trellis perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony. (A canopy tent may need to be rented as a precaution for inclement weather.) The inside Living Room and Conservatory are also beautiful choices for the ceremony and reception.
Your event will be planned as a four-hour affair. When renting the entire Inn, you may celebrate into the wee hours, if you so choose. However, we require that the catering function is ended no later than 8:30, so that we have time to clean and prepare breakfast in the morning for you!
When renting the Inn for your special day, there is an Event Service Fee that allows for the use of the entire facility, with some exclusions. Special events involve the use of the Inn in a way that is outside of our normal guest activity. Therefore, this fee will allow you to use our facility to stage your event. It also accommodates the hiring of extra staff and other necessary expenses not normally incurred by the Inn.
Our local Wedding Coordinator will coordinate the event and will stay in close communication with you as the details of the special day draw near. This is of great benefit, especially if you are planning from a distance.
Event Service Fees
From October 1 to the Third Weekend in May, the event fee is $750.00 that allows the use of the entire facility in order to stage your special occasion, with some exclusions. From the Third Weekend in May to September 30, the event fee is $1,500.00
If the entire Inn is rented, the entire facility may be used for the event. In this case children under 16 are allowed as guests.
Our Chef caters all on-site events. We do not allow outside caterers to provide service in our facility.
Buffet or plated dinners range from $60-$120/person plus gratuity depending on the menu. This includes a choice of 3 appetizers, 2 salads, 3 side dishes, 2 entrees, non-alcoholic beverages, and a champagne toast.
Sample menus can be provided upon request. Custom wedding cakes are available by request.
We do not allow hard alcohol to be served on the premises.
The Inn can provide fine selections of wine and beer.
Any wine and beer not provided by the Inn is subject to corkage and service fees.
We require a non-refundable deposit in the amount of $1,000.00 to guarantee your reservation. A secondary deposit of 50% will be due in six months, or mid-way, prior to your event. Final payment is due four weeks before your wedding. All deposits are non-refundable, unless the dates you have reserved are re-booked for another wedding reception.

"I had my wedding at Arch Cape House last weekend. Everything was amazing. The Inn was just as beautiful as I'd hoped. The food was fabulous, the service was great and the accommodations were lovely. Stephen and Cynthia were perfect hosts. They were very gracious and accommodating."
