Ok so, reviews are a formal assessment of something using the most descriptive words you can think of to express your experience with a place, product, or person. Therefore, I truly don’t know how to write this review of Lord Thompson Manor because the venue, the staff, and ambiance left me and my entire family SPEECHLESS.Sent on 10/30/2020
The only word I can think of to describe our entire wedding planning process as well as the wedding weekend is PERFECT. Let me tell you LTM could have a space in the dictionary under “wedding geniuses.” Choosing this venue was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. The second we set foot in this venue for our tour we instantly felt at home. We knew right away that LTM was our venue. Not only because it is beautiful but we felt the most amazing vibe from Andrew and the rest of the staff. They know what type of place they run and they couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.
The one complaint I have is that we couldn’t stay longer because I would have, haha. We did not want to leave. You won't want to either.
DO NOT hesitate to go on a tour of this venue. It was just pure class from start to finish. The PERFECT wedding venue.
Thank you Lord Thompson Manor!!!

As I come down from the high of my daughter’s most perfect wedding this past weekend, I had to share our experience with Lord Thompson Manor. I hesitate to even refer to LTM as a “venue” because the mansion, The Cottage and the Watson Inn truly become your home for the weekend.Sent on 11/04/2020
As if 2020 hadn’t dealt us enough already, the 2 days before the wedding brought a few more major curveballs. As last minute changes seemed devastating at the time, with each new obstacle Jackie and Janice became the surrogate moms to my daughter – a shoulder to cry on, bringing her dinner and making sure she ate, homemade cookies…again, this is before the wedding weekend even began!
Janice and Jackie – I know you will forever hold a very special place in my daughter’s heart.
Ted - some sort of wedding/host/jack of all trades superpower…I saw him shoveling snow, stoking the fires, meticulously serving the wedding dinner to my family and I’m sure a million other things I didn’t see as he tended to the groom and groomsmen at the Manor all weekend.
Chef Mike – the food was amazing. From the barbecue themed rehearsal dinner and its desserts to the wedding dinner, the passed hor d’oeuvres, the Sunday brunch. “Throwing together” some lunch for family just arriving on Friday and getting ready with the girls at The Cottage, where every time I turned around someone was offering me coffee, tea, fruit, veggies.
Jackie -my girlfriend is a florist and in all the weddings and events she’s done over the years, she couldn’t believe how gorgeous the flowers and how creative their arrangements were.
The attention to detail and the level of customer service at LTM went above and beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. With owners and a staff that become as invested in your wedding as you are, this is not your typical 5 hour reception with a “wedding coordinator”. This is a weekend event, an experience your guests will talk about for a long time and a group of people that turned every vision of the bride and groom into a reality.

Beautiful venue, friendly staff, and they out together our dream wedding!Sent on 11/09/2020
I love Lord Thompson Manor so much..I got married there myself! I am a wedding photographer and seriously folks, Jackie & her staff are playing on a whole different level when it comes to wedding day details. I've seen everything, photographed everywhere. They are second to NONE. You will never want to leave the place.
At The Lord Thompson Manor, the staff, the service, the setting itself all work in harmony to create the kind of wedding couples dream of. I had the honor to officiate for a couple married there last year and will officiate again for another couple soon. As delighted as I am, I can just imagine how thrilled couples are to know they can trust the details of their special day to the owners of such a competent and caring venue.
