venue question

Has anyone heard anything about Wetherledge in Jamestown?

    Hi there,

     We looked into it and I remember the woman was very nice!  It's a beautiful spot.  It didn't exactly suit our needs (we wanted to be able to stay at the house for several days before and after the wedding, and I don't remember exactly what the arrangement was at Wetherledge, but I think if you were having a wedding you are just using the property like a regular venue for a certain number of hours and you don't get the house - when you do rent the house, I think it was something like you don't get the whole house and the homeowners are there?).  I imagine it'd be a great spot if you aren't interested in staying there for the whole week.

    Sorry I don't remember more, but it's definitely worth a call!  We ended up at a different home in Jamestown and if you want any info on that let me know!  Doing it this way there's definitely a lot to think about and the rentals add up, but we're (so far!) getting in right around our planned budget.  Wetherledge might alleviate some of that - not sure if they do the tent for you? 

    Good luck, either way!

    Thanks for the info. What was the name of the house you decided to go with? I am open to anything at the moment!

    Hey Lucky,

    Sorry for the delay in response!  We rented The Twilight Cottage (it's on the water on the east shore and has a nice big lawn - sleeps about 12).  We found it on VRBO.com, and Elaine, the owner is WONDERFUL!  there's another house in Jamestown on the water that we looked into will allow weddings, too - the Tyler Page Estate.  That one was out of our price range b/c he only rents Saturday-Saturday, so he said for a Saturday wedding we'd really have to book 2 weeks (which at 15k, seemed like too much $ for us fo rjust to rent the house since we're local anyway!)

    Hope this is helpful, and if you do go this route let me know!
