Best venue ever

My husband and I got married at the Thompson Inn in October 2023 and cannot say enough about the venue. From the wedding planning to the chef to all the staff, everything was perfect!! We stayed at the Inn with our family during the wedding weekend and it was clean and felt like we were at home. It was the perfect space to host our welcome drinks and gather with all our family and friends before the wedding day. The breakfast they served in the morning was our favorite part! They provided so many options and the food was just delicious. The wedding planner Lauren was amazing to work with. Leading up to the wedding she answered every single question we had and was very quick with responses. Lauren made our weekend and wedding day go so smoothly, we were so grateful to have her there. Every single staff member at the Thompson Inn truly made you feel a part of their family and were right there when you needed them. The other best part of this venue is the food. The food was truly the best food we have ever had at any wedding we have been too. They are also AMAZING with food allergies. We had guests who had pretty severe allergies (one being gluten soy and dairy) and they were able to eat so much, some of which they haven’t been able to eat in a while (get the chicken tender bar!!!) Chef Alex you are such an incredible chef! Our family and friends won’t stop gushing over how delicious the food was and how amazing the venue was! We are so glad we picked Thompson Inn to have our wedding! We cannot wait to go visit the venue for any events they host!

The most perfect venue

This was the only venue we even considered looking at and it was absolutely perfect. I first drove by the Thompson Inn ~5 years ago and saw a beautiful wedding happening and I immediately knew that I wanted to get married there someday too.

In the fall of 2021, we booked the Thompson Inn without touring any other venue. Lori and Stephen were so welcoming and kind on our initial tour of the inn & cyderhouse. After we booked, Lauren, our coordinator, was so communicative and responsive to all our questions throughout the 2 year planning process (we got married in September 2023). She always got back to us so quickly with an answer and was so helpful at every step of the way!

At our final venue walkthrough, we met with Lauren and Arielle to go over our options in case of rain. I really wanted to hold the ceremony outside and we determined that with our guest count, we’d be able to hold our ceremony under the back patio awning if it rained and wasn’t too windy. This was the perfect solution and I felt much more at ease with our backup plan!

We held our rehearsal dinner at the Inn too! We were able to pick and choose dishes we wanted from our tasting and from the menus provided to create a truly customized experience. The Inn & Chef Alex were so flexible and accommodating to our vision.

The morning of our wedding, we had a delicious breakfast at the inn of fruits, pastries, coffee, eggs, etc. all prepared by the inn staff. The breakfast was a delicious and perfect way to start the day. The bridal party opted to get ready in the cyderhouse and the groomsmen got ready in the main suite of the inn. The bridal party had plenty of room to spread out while getting ready at the cyderhouse & we opted for the mimosa bar to kick off the morning which was an excellent choice. Throughout the day, Arielle was so helpful with everything! From helping me with my veil, to making sure my bustle was in place, she helped with it all!

We were lucky enough that the rain held off and we were able to have the ceremony outside under the oak trees. Everything was absolutely perfect. Our vendors kept commenting about how smoothly everything went throughout the entire day!

For our reception, we created a custom floor plan because we really wanted to have a large dance floor. The setup of the reception was just what we’d envisioned too! The DJ even commented on how packed the dance floor had been at the end of the night. The food was amazing and we had so many guests tell us it was the best wedding food they’d ever eaten (two relatives even told me it was better than the meal they’d had at the Black Trumpet the night before)!

Overall, the day was an absolute dream and was so stress free! The inn staff did an amazing job coordinating with all our vendors and making sure everything ran on time and without any hiccups. I’d highly recommend this venue in a heartbeat!

The venue of our dreams!

Having our wedding at The Thompson Inn & Cyderhouse was an absolute dream come true. From the time leading up, to the day of our wedding was perfect. The property is absolutely breathtaking, the grounds, the Inn, and cyderhouse, ALL OF IT. The venue was everything we wanted and more. The staff are so friendly and beyond helpful. Lauren, who is the wedding coordinator at the venue is amazing. Lauren made sure everything was seamlessly done and was a major part of our wedding day being perfection. When it came to the food, our guests were speechless. Rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour bites, and reception dinner were delicious. I could go on and on about how lucky we were to have our special day/weekend take place at the Thompson Inn & Cyderhouse.

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!
