My fiancé and I chose the Cooper Beech Inn for our small (30 person) wedding weekend because we wanted a charming location where our guests could stay at the same location as our ceremony and reception. The Copper Beech Inn lived up to our expectations. The accommodations were lovely, the food delicious and the staff attentive to our wishes. We're... More

For us, when time is short but a get away is in order, the Copper Beech Inn is just the place! Ivoryton is a pretty, very quiet hamlet (bring a book!). The Inn is warm and inviting.

When I called to make a reservation, Jessica said only the carriage house was available - pick your room! She opened the entire carriage house for us. We were the only ones staying there.

As we love the Inn's restaurant, we decided dinner and a stay at the inn would make a wonderful anniversary trip. Our room was beautiful and full of antiques and old world charm. The staff was gracious and accommodating. The main house can be a bit chilly in January, so the room's space heater came in handy. We hope they... More

We had made reservations weeks in advance of my 90 year old mother's stay there on Christmas eve. We informed them that she wouldn't be able to stay in the main building because all rooms are up stairs, which she couldn't navigate. So accommodations were requested in the carriage house. We got there to find the heat hadn't been turned... More

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's uncomfortable stay here at the Copper Beech Inn! This is not a typical experience here and although this is a review from 2012, it is clear from reading the review carefully that your mother stayed here in 2011. Since that time, we have made repairs to the building's heating and cooling... More

Wow, really unfortunate - had reserved a room at a discounted rate for my 30th wedding anniversary, was told the inn would honor the rate, only to receive a call the next day saying they would not honor the rate-very disappointed in their lack of professionalism - cancelled the res of course.

Stayed at the Copper Beech Inn in September. The main Inn is very romantic and has the look and feel of a Victorian mansion. My advice would be to book a room in the main Inn.
