A dream wedding venue
My husband and I booked this venue about 2 years ago while Steve and Lori were in the process of building it. They have since done a fantastic job with the beautiful property. Our wedding went flawlessly and was a dream come true for us. We highly recommend this venue!Sent on 10/18/2018

Wedding of our dreams!
I cannot express how truly amazing our wedding was at the Thompson Inn and Cyderhouse. Lori, Stephanie, and the entire team were there every step of the way to make our day possible. I can’t speak highly enough of Lori and Stephanie. They are there to make sure it all goes smoothly, and that the day is exactly what we dreamed it would be. The Thompson Inn Cyderhouse was the perfect backdrop that we envisioned. The venue is picture perfect. The scenery, including the gorgeous trees and river, as well as the Inn and Cyderhouse are all breathtaking. We booked the venue before it was completed, and can’t speak enough to how truly beautiful it is. The trees encompassed the perfect place to say “I Do”. The porch provided the perfect place for cocktail hour, and the heaters made it perfect place on the chilly October day. The cyderhouse was the perfect spot to be introduced as husband and wife, eat and dance the night away. From the bridal suite to the wine cellar, the venue was the perfect place to have our wedding. Lori and her team were professional and talented. They are truly knowledgeable of how to plan and operate the perfect wedding day. Their coordination and execution made the day possible. They made our day feel so personal, yet used what had worked in the past to make the day absolutely perfect. Throughout the planning process they checked in and really did all they could to make our wedding day the best day. They were always there to answer questions and support us every step of the way. Thank you to all at the Thompson Inn and Cyderhouse for making our wedding dreams a reality! It was truly the best day, and would not have been possible without the team at Thompson Inn and the beautiful wedding venue they have created.Sent on 12/31/2018
Thompson Inn & Cyderhouse Price Rates
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!
