  • I loved having my wedding at Dowd's Country Inn and I heard nothing but good reviews from my wedding guests who stayed at the Inn. The food is delicious and Danielle the event planner was very helpful especially the week of the wedding. She even responded to my e-mails quickly on her days off. I would highly recommend this vendor.
