Celebrate With Us

Venue Rental

Salem River Inn is a private venue, surrounded by a nature preserve. Our waterfront location is scenic and offers serene views with gorgeous sunsets. Enjoy your special event with the spectacular views that our River Deck provides! With a wooden ceiling, bamboo floor and neutral colors, our venue lends itself perfectly to be decorated or use as is, in its own beauty.  We only host one event per day and the venue is yours for the duration. So that you can enjoy your event as much, or evenmore than your guests, we make it as easy as possible for you when renting our venue!

Prior to the event you work with an event planner to decide on a floor plan, linen colors and to advise you on decorations.

During the event, a server will assist you from ½ hour before the start of the event until ½ hour after the event. The server will help setup the buffet, serve food, maintain the buffet, bus the tables and cleanup. This way you can truly enjoy your event with your guests!

After the event we handle the trash removal.

We offer our beautiful space not only for wedding receptions, but also for birthday parties, class reunions, dinner functions, bridal showers, baby showers and almost any other life event you can think of.

Our modern and light great room can also host your corporate  meetings, dinner functions, and luncheons up to 100 guests. Based on your needs and number of participants, we can provide setups in U-shape, classroom or boardroom.During daytime breaks, participants can take a leisurely stroll on the 2-mile stretch beach right in front of The Inn. We have a large side yard and backyard with beach. Our yard and grounds lend themselves perfectly for a leisurely stroll or backyard games.

Great experience!

We are so happy that we chose the Salem River Inn for our wedding! It was a pleasure to work with Yvonne, who was so friendly, thoughtful, and organized and always patiently answered all our questions. This venue was just what we were looking for. It was a great size for our small wedding (about 40 guests), with an extremely helpful inclusive package and wonderful views of the river and surrounding natural areas. We opted for a late morning ceremony and a short, midday reception, and the Inn was more than happy to accommodate our plans despite hosting an evening wedding the day before. We felt like Yvonne went above and beyond to help us on our special day. She did a wonderful job helping us to stay on schedule, and making sure that we remembered to eat. She and her team were so professional and efficient and were able to seamlessly transition from an indoor ceremony to an indoor reception, although we were also having our photos taken inside at the same time. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend the Salem River Inn!
