The Grafton Inn is the BEST!
The whole weekend felt very special and personalized - we truly felt like we were "taking over the town", as most of the guests stayed at the Inn or airbnbs in the area. So throughout the weekend our guests were all coming and going, congregating on the lovely front porch for drinks and hanging. Or off to the General Store next door where they'd run into other guests and meet some of our other family members/friends. It was such a quaint setting! It also worked out really well for 120 guests (fairly sizeable group), where during the reception the dance floor was bustling and lively & those taking a break from dancing could get some air outside on the patio. The night before welcome party at the Outdoor Center was also fabulous and looked stunning with string lights and tables; and of course beautiful views by the river. Multiple guests referred to the whole weekend as "intimate" which I think describes the Grafton really well :)
Everyone LOVED the food too (worth a call out in this review!), especially the duck and steak entrees. And all of the passed apps & those featuring cheese! Really high quality food all around.
Olivia and Angela also were pros at making sure both the welcome party and the wedding day festivities were taken care of ahead of time so we could enjoy a stress-free wedding weekend. We basically handed over any personalized/DIY touches (like a collection of photos to hang up, etc) and they took it from there! We felt confident that everything was in good hands and didn't have to worry.
Throughout the whole planning process and the weekend itself they were super organized, knowledgeable, and and their expertise in this whole wedding thing clearly showed!! Everything was seamless. We had the best time
The Grafton Inn is the best kept secret in the northeast!
Get married at the Grafton Inn!
We'll be going back to the Grafton Inn for years to come. We highly suggest you do too!
