Wedding Testimonial

My husband and I wanted an intimate, romantic setting for our wedding weekend and that is exactly what we got. The whole team at DesBarres Manor Inn was very helpful and professional in the organization and execution of our ideal special day. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. In fact, we have already made our reservations to celebrate our first anniversary at the Manor and savor more of Chef Shaun’s cuisine.
