    Outstanding all around

    The entire experience through Grafton for our wedding was impeccably managed - Olivia and Olivia clearly laid out what was expected from us, met and emailed with us regularly to ensure things were on track, was always able to answer our questions, and was available up through the ceremony to ensure things went well. There were essentially no areas of stress - the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and all other activities we planned through the weekend (including a little orienteering adventure in the nearby Grafton trails for our guests) went off without a hitch. Highly recommended, and an amazing venue and staff all around.

    A dream wedding!

    The Grafton Inn was the most amazing place to have a winter wedding or probably any wedding. The inn had absolutely everything I wanted; from stunning landscape, buildings, and rooms to enough houses and rooms so everyone could stay in the same place (which makes everything more fun.) The food was also incredible, hands down best wedding food. We stayed in White Gates which was a small mansion on the property that was so cool, with fireplaces and a baby grand piano, it was perfect for pictures, relaxing, and gathering. Olivia the wedding planner was the absolute best, she was so helpful and anything I asked, she was like yeah we can do that. She helped make my wedding so special and so very us! Wedding planning can be stressful but Olivia, Angela and The Grafton Inn made it so easy and enjoyable. It was the best decision we made having the wedding there, I highly, highly recommend it.

The Grafton Inn is a favorite choice among many of my clients. It is the perfect location for a luxury destination wedding. Reflections I quite often hear from their guests are that everything about their experience from the moment of conception to the day of departure is of the utmost excellence. With five star restaurants, and stellar customer service. Many couples choose the Grafton Inn, as it offers an intimate family experience, and can accommodate their out of town guests in a unique community setting. With its on site housing tucked along the quaint streets of Grafton, everyone is close, lending itself to a charming experience for the wedding party and their families.
