Ideal wedding weekend!!

To say the Barnstead Inn is the perfect wedding venue is an understatement. From when we first toured the property in the Winter of 2022, we immediately knew this is where we wanted to get married. The staff were welcoming and kind, making us feel like family from the beginning.

Throughout the planning process Meg and Andrea were a great team who guided us through each decision based on past experiences. We met with Meg regularly via Zoom and phone calls, and she worked closely with us to answer every question we had, and thoroughly explained to us what would and wouldn’t need in order to keep our budget in check. She recommended vendors, day-of timelines and optimal layouts but was also amenable to the new ideas we wanted to try out.

One of the benefits of the Inn was the ability to have members of our family and closest friends stay on-site throughout the weekend. The rooms and suites were perfectly suited for our guests, and the staff treated all guests with the best of care.

We hosted a few events on the property throughout the weekend including the rehearsal, post-rehearsal drinks in the tavern, wedding reception and farewell breakfast. Each of those events were perfectly staffed, expertly coordinated and immaculately decorated. Our guests still rave about how stunning the grounds were throughout the property.

When our wedding weekend finally arrived, we felt like the wedding we had planned with the crew at the Barnstead was a perfect reflection of us as a couple. We had a few last-minute tasks to complete, which Pete, Andrea, Meg, and the staff all lent help in accomplishing. The events went off without a hitch, and the day was perfect.

It’s tough to wholly reflect our feelings of the Barnstead Inn, its owners, and staff members in just a few short paragraphs. Our only regret is that we can’t relive the day every day. There’s no doubt without them, our wedding would not have been as amazing as it was. They’re truly dedicated to their guests, and we could not sing their praises enough.

Excellent wedding venue

We can’t thank you enough for helping to make E and J's wedding weekend a smashing success.

Your attention to detail, the flexibility and the little extras were all so appreciated.

From the fall entrance display, the new bridge, the extra and extra and extra late night breakfast sandwiches, you kept saying yes with a smile to everything that was needed or asked for and it was above and beyond!

You have a great staff that also does their job with a smile at all times. So many people who were staying at the Inn commented on how amazing the property and rooms are. The breakfast was extremely delicious and accommodating as well. My sister loved all the choices of “dairy” for her coffee!
The entire staff and property is amazing!
Thank you, Thank you!

Beautiful July Wedding Weekend

My husband and I recently got married in Manchester, VT and utilized the Barnstead Inn for our rehearsal dinner, welcome party, and used the entire grounds to house our wedding party. Andrea, Megan, and their team did an outstanding job the entire weekend. Paying close attention to everyone's needs and desires, our guests left happy and wanting to plan their own weekends at the inn. The Barnstead Inn is everything beautiful Vermont has to offer. Their grounds are beautifully manicured with endless flowers, a relaxing creek, tons of outdoor seating, and a clean heated saltwater pool! We stumbled upon the inn needing more accomodations for our wedding party, and knew this property was the perfect place to have not only beautiful rooms for our guests to stay in, but also space for everyone to enjoy the great outdoors. We worked closely with Megan & Andrea during the planning process of our rehearsal dinner and welcome party. They recommended the best catering in the area and assured us everything would be the vision we wanted. For our welcome party, we had their amazing brick oven pizzas (our guests still raving about these) and had lawn games provided by the inn for our guests to enjoy. Along with our rehearsal dinner and welcome party being on the property, myself (the bride) and bridesmaids got ready in the Farmhouse Suite. This was perfect for everyone and allowed plenty of room for comfort and relaxation getting ready. Although I didn't get married on the property, I'm confident my wedding would have gone smooth, considering all of our other events hosted there have. If anyone's looking for a beautiful property with amazing food & kind, caring staff - look no further! Our guests are still raving about the beautiful property, their welcoming staff, and the smooth rehearsal dinner and welcome party the Barnstead Inn provided. We can't recommend anyone else!
