The W.W. Smith Inn provides a special setting and the perfect ambience for any event, whether it is a party, dinner, shower or grooms dinner. The elegant surroundings and attentive, personalized service ensure a memorable event for you and your guests.

We can comfortably seat up to 22 guests for a sit-down dinner party using the formal dining room and sitting room.  The Inn provides fine china, silver, glassware, napery and tablecloths, along with candles and centerpieces.  Fresh flowers are available upon request.

For a cocktail reception or buffet we can accommodate approximately 50 guests.

During the summer months we can use the wrap around Victorian-style porch and the beautifully landscaped grounds to add a special touch to your event.

We work with a number of caterers with a wide variety of entrée options to design a menu suitable for the occasion and your budget.

Please call us to check on open dates and to help plan your event.  We’ll provide a detailed proposal outlining all services, food items, materials and costs.

We offer a tour of the Inn with a history of Sleepy eye, the families who built and lived in the Smith House and a walking tour of the Main House, Carriage House and Grounds.  The Inn is on the National register of Historic Places and features many distinctive architectural details.
