    Fall Catholic Wedding Recommendation

    The Thompson Inn was the most amazing venue for our wedding. The location is perfect - close to our Catholic Church in Newmarket (2.4 miles away!!), to a hotel for guests (3 miles), and to small business / restaurants in Downtown Durham and Newmarket (3 miles). The local towns near by, really help guests to make a weekend out of the trip - there is so much to do and see! The staff was professional, thoughtful, and creative. They worked with us to truly make our Wedding Day dreams come true. Side notes: We have a unique extended family, lots of young cousins... We were able to use the room downstairs to host the kids 2yrs-16yrs for dinner - thus the upstairs still felt kid free. We had "babysitters" from UNH to guide arts and crafts for the younger kiddos. The large yard, kept the older kids outside playing games. We had our grandparents staying on the first floor of the Inn onsite, so when they were tired, they could easily scoot away. We also hosted a Wine Tasting in the Wine Cellar during Cocktail Hour. It was a huge hit with the guests. The Wine Tasting moved folks through the entire building, rather than staying only in the lobby/terrace. I absolutely recommend this venue.

    Dream Come True

    I could write a novel about how absolutely wonderful this venue is. Between Steve, Lori, Stephanie, Kamini and all others that run the show here, our special day was more than we could have asked for. The grounds are absolutely stunning and cared for on a daily basis. Having the ability to utilize the Inn for two nights was just perfect and having just ONE wedding per weekend makes it feel like the world is revolving around you for a whole two days. The coordinators, both during the planning process and day off, can't be beat. They made our day as low stress as it could have ever been. I can't recommend this venue enough. If you have the opportunity to have your special day here, I highly recommend it. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

    This venue is nothing short of magic! The details which owners Lori and Steve put into creating this space are awe inspiring; from the light fixtures to the furnishings; everything is crafted with quality in mind. The landscaping adds so much to photographs, and the hardscaping they have done through the use of brick and stone is impressive, while staying true to the historical nature of the setting. I was so impressed with the venue, staff, and food that I asked that they consider hosting a celebratory dinner for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. Lori made my somewhat last minute request a breeze, and worked with her chef to create a wonderful menu that suited everyone's pallets. She even adorned the table with fresh, seasonal flowers. Above and beyond, as always!
