A Memory of a Lifetime
The whole experience - from the planning, to the rehearsal dinner, to the ceremony, to the last dance - was perfection. For all our vision of this day, they managed to surpass all our expectations. Their friendliness, eagerness to help, and willingness to do whatever it took to accommodate our needs were amazing. We cannot speak highly enough of our happiness with the Thompson Inn & Cyderhouse and the wonderful people who help run it.Sent on 06/04/2019

The Best Venue Ever!
There aren't enough great words we can say about Lori, Stephanie, and the whole team at The Thompson Inn! We booked in our wedding with them nearly 2 years in advance because we absolutely fell in love with the venue the moment we saw it. Lori was so helpful and communicative throughout the whole planning process and then Stephanie assisted us with all of the details for the reception. Our wedding day was beyond perfect - from the great weather, to the beautiful ceremony under the maple trees, a relaxed cocktail hour along the Cyderhouse deck and lawn, to the breathtaking reception hall. Oh and the food was incredible!!! On top of it all, the staff was SO nice and helpful to us and all of our guests throughout the whole day. We can't count how many compliments we got from our guests saying it was their favorite wedding venue they had ever been to so we were so happy we were able to share this gem with all of our loved ones from near and far. Our wedding was truly the best day ever and we have the team at The Thompson Inn to thank for all of their hard work and for providing their wonderful venue to us. We absolutely recommend The Thompson Inn to all future brides and grooms!Sent on 06/21/2019

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!
