Due to the pandemic, my husband and I decided against having a traditional wedding to get eloped in the mountains of New Hampshire. While it was very special for us to have a private ceremony, we still wanted to make sure our closest family members felt included in our marriage.
We reached out to several wedding venues about holding our intimate reception dinner, but many were either closed or unwilling to host such a small group. We decided to focus instead on private dining.
The Cove responded quickly to our initial inquiry and continued to be responsive and informative throughout the process.
When we first visited the site, we were impressed by their event space. It is completely closed off from their public dining room with its own bar, bathrooms, and balcony space. There are windows and/or French doors along 2 of the 4 walls with views of the water. (Our guests gushed about watching the sunset from their tables!)
While having a beautiful event space was a priority, what was most important to us was making sure that our family felt safe given the public health crisis.
The Cove went above and beyond in protecting our guests and their staff. We had the room at less than 1/3rd of its full capacity, tables has fewer chairs than usual and were spaced more than 6 feet apart, there were sanitizing stations throughout the room, everyone wore a mask when they were not seated at their table, and all service was provided by the wait staff (even bar service!)
Beyond COVID protocols, we also had an extensive list of allergies. The Cove was very accommodating and made sure that the dishes served were free of the allergens.
The day of our reception dinner, the room was completely set up by event staff with decor we had dropped off a few nights prior.
Our event coordinator did a fabulous job managing the day from start to finish; we could tell that he loved his job. He had wonderful energy, moved the event forward throughout the night, and made sure we were completely taken care of the whole time. He checked in throughout the event to bring us drinks, update us on our tab, and made sure we were comfortable.
I appreciate all the work that The Cove put into making our reception dinner one of the few occasions of 2020 that we will be able to look back on with fondness. Thank you!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Cove early in June 2019. We are still beaming!! The Cove is definitely a hidden gem, and I absolutely recommend you add this venue to your list. The price is very reasonable for the area, and the personalized experience is unmatched. Alison was communicative throughout the entire process, and I always felt confident and in the loop. She was so accommodating to our requests and made great suggestions along the way for food, decor, etc. She also offered to coordinate with all of our vendors to ensure a seamless experience. John, the day of coordinator, was also very flexible to our needs, and worked hard to make sure we felt worry-free on the day of.Sent on 06/29/2019
The day of was amazing, and we have received so many compliments from friends and family. The food was incredible- guests are still raving about the entrees and hors d'oeuvres. The cocktail hour on the patio was unique and offered beautiful views of the water. The venue itself was also beautiful and the space really allows you to add personalized details to make it your own. All of the staff, bartenders, servers, etc. were friendly and helpful.
Definitely recommend 10/10!! Please check this place out if you are planning your wedding!!

Amazing venue location
Allison and John were nothing but terrific. They made our day go so smoothly. The venue was absolutely beautiful. Everyone said the spot was so great with the panoramic views of the water and sunset! The food was top notch! The seafood stuffed sole is heaven! Everyone loved it. John went around the whole night making sure everything was absolutely flawless and it was thanks to him! I could not picture having a better venue and wedding coordinator! 5+ stars!!! Highly recommended!Sent on 10/23/2018
