Five stars are not enough for The Nonantum Resort!! My wife and I were lucky enough to have both Dawn and Tim help us coordinate our wedding. They are two of the kindest people we've ever met; they made us feel like family from the very beginning and that extended to our families and friends throughout our wedding weekend. Dawn and Tim's enthusiasm and professionalism are beyond reproach. All questions or concerns, no matter big or small, were addressed immediately; we were never left with any worries. It is clear from the moment you step onto the beautiful grounds that every single member of the staff takes great pride in being a part of The Nonantum Resort “family"! So, so many of our guests made a point to tell us how very impressed they were and how truly welcome they felt to be there! As several family members have Gluten allergies, we needed a menu that could accommodate all. Everything that was served, from cocktail hour through dinner and the late night snacks served towards the end of our reception, was gluten free and all of it was AMAZING!! We are still getting comments from family and friends in attendance who say it was the best menu and food they had ever had at a wedding! Also important to note, and included in your stay, is a bountiful and delicious breakfast buffet served each morning for all guests! From the moment we arrived, through the last of us leaving Sunday morning, the truly thoughtful staff were there to take care of everything and we will never forget their kindness. We cannot wait to return every year to celebrate our anniversary.

A Perfect and Intimate Wedding at Nonantum!
My husband and I had an intimate wedding of 20 guests in Fall of 2018 at the Nonantum Resort. With the Nonantum's help, it was truly an unforgettable weekend and one of the happiest moments of our lives!
Location - Absolutely wonderful! The lawn where ceremonies are held is right on the water, just a 2-minute drive to the oceanside where you can get some fantastic couples shots together. They provide a backup venue for the ceremony in case of inclement weather which is great!
Price - Affordable for intimate weddings.
Event Coordination - Every wedding gets an event coordinator. That was a lifesaver at the wedding! We had Catie T. She was always very responsive and organized. Catie and her staff took care of everything at the wedding - setting up the reception table with our decorations, setting up the ceremony site, playing the music for the processional, coordinating with deliveries, storing everything, etc. Catie has a very calm demeanor and doesn’t react negatively even when the people around are stressed. She clearly is very good at her job and I am very thankful that we had her!
Reception - Appetizers were amazing! We had a plated dinner and I have only heard positive comments about the food at the reception from our guests. The groom and I went out for photos at sunset and the staff actually put some covers over our food while we did that which was very thoughtful. The Nonantum was VERY good about handling food allergies. Our cake was served and they followed specific instructions about that perfectly. We had a small nautical knot on the cake and they even split the knot between the groom’s plate and mine. Details, people. Details. Catie hooked us up with votive candles for the reception and everything else we needed for the reception (linens, napkins, servingware, cake utensils, etc) which is a cost savings from other venues that require you to rent or bring your own.
Rooms - The rooms in Nonantum are much more modern and nicer than you would expect (old building!). I didn’t particularly like the bed in the “bridal suite” but that’s being nitpicky. The room had a great “fireplace” and mantel that was great for detail shots.
Reservations - Nonantum has an online area for brides/grooms to see which members of their party have reserved rooms. That is really nice and helped us keep track of guests! The reservations process a bit confusing at times and unclear. There were a few times I asked questions to the front desk/reservations staff and didn’t quite get a direct answer depending on who I got. The contract at Nonantum mentions that they will release your room block 60 days beforehand so that is important to remember. We didn’t and they don’t send you a reminder, so we messed that up for two of our guests. These were all minor things. I am only sharing for the purposes of honest feedback. But certainly none of these would deter me from booking the Nonantum!
Breakfast is really good! Included in the room rates for everyone and made everything easy. This is not a continental breakfast… this is a full breakfast with plenty of options to choose from. They also had gluten-free options (great for two of our guests)! Try the blueberry pancakes.
Overall I felt like we couldn’t have chosen a better option for our wedding. Nonantum takes care of all of the details so you can enjoy the day stress-free! I am very thankful to the Nonantum staff for making our day so special. Thank you!!
