    The wedding weekend of our dreams!

    Dexter's Inn was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue. It's an absolutely gorgeous setting overlooking Mount Sunapee with a very slight view of Lake Sunapee, as well, with stone walls stretching out over many areas of the venue, a beautiful patio, high quality rooms, and a huge open-air tent for seating many guests. John, the innkeeper, is so kind, helpful, and communicative, and he went above and beyond to make sure everything worked out perfectly throughout the weekend. We were able to host all of our wedding party and family at the inn for the weekend, holding our rehearsal dinner on the patio and our wedding after party in Dexter's beautiful game room on campus. The inn provides a delicious hot breakfast to all guests each morning, and the venue and its sprawling grounds is basically yours during your stay. We could not have asked for a more perfect site for our wedding weekend and recommend it very highly!

    The perfect venue for a multi-day camp-vibe wedding

    I was tipped off to Dexter's by a friend who had his wedding there years ago and thank god we got that recommendation! Dexter's is extremely reasonably priced and they do weddings there almost every weekend so John, the innkeeper, really knows how to ensure that things run smoothly. He acted as our silent operator day-of and prompted good questions during the planning process for us to think about. The property itself is gorgeous - beautiful view of Sunapee mountain, very well landscaped and SO MANY FUN GAMES (volleyball, tennis, cornhole, ping pong, etc). The 50 guests we had sleep at the inn actually got to know each other over the 3 days there. There is also a converted barn on site that is the perfect low-brow high-fun place to keep the party going late night. Thank you to everyone at Dexter's for their help and relatively relaxed attitudes during a weekend of extreme fun for us and our loved ones.

    Best wedding venue for a weekend celebration

    Dexter’s Inn is a hidden gem of a venue. We had our bridal party, parents and grandparents all stay on site for the entire weekend. We hosted a welcome party for out of town guests on the patio and got married on the beautiful grounds. Although the weather didn’t go exactly as planned, we still had a beautiful ceremony under the tent which transformed into an even better reception space. If you are looking for somewhere you can actually spend time with your guests. This is it!! Also, John the inn keeper is extremely knowledgeable and ensures your weekend goes as planned.

Great venue for your wedding. The wedding I photographed there it rained hard. The staff was great at keeping every thing on time even know they had to move the ceremony to inside.

Off-the-beaten path setting with views of Little Lake Sunapee and Mount Kearsarge. Friendly host is experienced with wedding parties - large and small. Cozy accommodations in a classic style New England inn.
