Perfect Mountain wedding
Just got married here in January in an intimate wedding. Heidi is absolutely amazing. Everything was great, the food, space, venue, location. We rented cabins for our friends and that was so much fun! The town is also great to tourist in. Overall we had an awesome experience! The value of the dinner, ceremony and everything was amazing. The most reasonable option financially by far while also literally being the best!Sent on 01/06/2020

A fairy-tale wedding in the mountains at a truly affordable price.
My husband and I married at Stonehurst Manor on October 5, 2019. From touring there in November 2017 to throughout the whole planning process, to the wedding itself and through the honeymoon, Heidi (wedding coordinator and hotel manager) and her team have treated us with utmost respect, professionalism, and thoughtfulness. Someone in an earlier review said she and her husband were treated like royalty, and my husband and I happen to agree.
Excuse the cliché, but not only did Stonehurst Manor meet our expectations -- they exceeded them. First off, the building is gorgeous. It's a Victorian manor, with attractive dark wood features, stained glass accents, and the world's prettiest sink (yes, I know that sounds silly, but it's true -- the sink on the lower floor is painted with flowers). As for the setting, Stonehurst is along the busy White Mountain Highway, but it's hard to notice because the grounds are high up on a forested hill. You cannot hear or see the traffic below, so it feels separated from congested North Conway. Also, the ceremony view is one of the best in the area -- it faces Mt. Washington. The view is spectacular, but especially during mid-morning in the autumn as the mountain mist dissipates and reveals a canvas of reds, oranges, yellows, and greens. My guests LOVED the view, and said it was by FAR the most beautiful setting they had ever seen for a wedding.
Oh, and… the food! I'm writing this review close to 2 weeks after my wedding, and I'm STILL getting texts about how amazing the food was! Texts such as, "the very best wedding food I have EVER had" and "downright the best prime rib I've ever had anywhere, anytime", among other compliments. These are compliments from people who live in the New York City area, surrounded by world-class chefs, so they have a very high standard to meet!
I can truly say that Stonehurst Manor is an amazing venue. It allows one to have a dream wedding at an affordable price, under the care of a very attentive staff. The housekeeping crew were great to my bridesmaids and I as we got ready, engaging in conversation and tracking down things we forgot like bobby pins. They also ensured my husband and I had "first pick" at the hours d'eourves during the photography, ensured we could have peace during dinner, and maintained a smooth vibe throughout the entire wedding. I cannot say enough especially about Heidi -- she is a true professional who made sure the wedding went as planned. She is extremely organized, punctual, and truly cares about her clients. There were mistakes that my husband and I did at last minute, but Heidi made sure the situations were resolved.
I cannot say it enough -- Stonehurst Manor is an exceptional wedding venue. From the beautiful view to the top-notch service, you will not be disappointed in having your wedding here. Thank you for creating the most wonderful day for us, Stonehurst Manor staff!Sent on 01/09/2019

I cannot even begin to say enough about our amazing experience at The Stonehurst Manor. Heidi, Peter, and their staff created the most gorgeous wedding for us. Everyone came in from out-of-town and stayed at the Manor for the weekend, and from perfect rooms, delicious meals, and attentive service throughout our stay, I did not hear a single negative comment from my (very picky) family!Sent on 06/11/2012
Small touches such as hors d'eourves for us during photography and drinks at the end of the aisle really went above and beyond our expectations.
I work as an event planner out-of-state and can personally attest to the quality of the venue as well as the value that you receive in their wedding package. Make your memories at The Stonehurst Manor, you will not regret your decision.
