About This Vendor

Nestled in the scenic Smoke Rise community of Kinnelon, the Smoke Rise Village Inn has been offering fine cuisine and exceptional service for 65 years. Its historic stone building, once a farming structure, dates to 1892. Following years of a thriving dairy business, the building was developed into a restaurant in 1947 — created to serve as the social hub of its small community. It has since evolved into one of the area’s premier culinary and catering destinations. The cobblestone courtyard and country gardens are reminiscent of a bygone era. This old-world charm blends with the modern elegance of a newly-renovated interior — serving as the perfect backdrop for both small gatherings and large special events. Patrons can enjoy cocktails and dinner in the lounge, replete with a cozy fireplace, or book a private dinner party in the enclosed gazebo room. The main ballroom can be tailored to the needs of bigger parties.

A recipient of the Five Star Diamond Award from The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, the Smoke Rise Village Inn is proud to be one of New Jersey’s sought-after wedding venues. The staff at Smoke Rise Village Inn believes planning your wedding should be an exciting and memorable time in your life, and they want to help make the entire process as enjoyable as possible.
