Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I get married at Taughannock?

The Inn at Taughannock Falls has a rich and romantic history as a wedding location. Since its opening in 1946, Taughannock has hosted many weddings on its gorgeous estate. Many Cornell and Ithaca alum return to take their vows at our property. Our 12-acre estate has four buildings with 24 guestrooms to accommodate your family and wedding guests. Surrounded by the Taughannock Falls State Park, every wedding overlooks the beautiful Cayuga Lake. You can also host ceremonies just a short stroll away from the lake, or the lovely lower waterfall, with no additional charge. Taughannock Falls offers perfect photo backdrops for your special day.

Can I rent the entire estate for my wedding?

Yes, you can rent the entire estate for your special day. The Inn at Taughannock Falls has four buildings, Victorian Inn, Lakeview, Hillside, and Parkview. Renting our entire estate for your wedding will give you access to every guestroom and suite on our property, our private houses, bar, restaurant, all the grounds, and the fire pits.

May I taste the food before committing to the venue?

May I have input on the wedding menu?

What are the bar options?

We have a variety of bar packages by the hour. We also provide options for a cash bar, consumption bar, or just wine and champagne service.

How late can our event last?

New York State law requires us to stop alcohol sales by 1AM. If you have rented one of our private homes, you are welcome to keep the party going behind closed doors. In all exterior venues, the band has to lower its volume no later than 11 pm. If utilizing our inside venue, you are required to book the bedrooms on the second floor of the Victorian Inn as part of your package if you want to host a live music party or DJ. These luxury accommodations can be used as your overnight lodging at the Inn.
