Jennifer was an absolute dream to work with! She responded to every single one of my many many questions incredibly fast and as if I had been the first one to ask it. She responded late at night, on weekends and even on her vacation. She truly went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. Julie was our day of coordinator. She allowed us to come the night prior to set up our own decorations for the wedding which was incredibly helpful. Our wedding ran so seamlessly thanks to the staff at ARCC! I would absolutely recommended 10/10 ARCC for your next event! Thank you Jen and Julie for helping to make the Diamond wedding beyond our wildest dreams!Sent on 11/30/2018

10/10 Best wedding ever
I cant even begin to express how thankful I am for Jenn, Tia & ARCC. From our first appointment to view the venue, through all our planning appointments, emails, etc, to the day we said I do, Jenn & ARCC was nothing but accommodating, willing to do just about anything we wanted. The price was perfect.Sent on 08/22/2019
We got married in the gazebo area, surrounded by waterfalls and flower beds. It was absolutely beautiful. The reception hall was beautiful. Food all came out perfect & hot.
All of our guests are still talking about how it was one the best weddings they've ever attended.
Would reccomend them to everyone & so glad we booked there! Thank you again Jenn, Tia, and to the Atkinson Country Club!

From start to finish Atkinson Resort and Country club was fantastic to work with! We only checked out one other venue before choosing Atkinson, and Jennifer Chipman was a big reason why we chose them. Jennifer is the wedding planner you work with throughout 99% of your experience, and WOW! is she incredible at what she does! She made wedding planning and making decisions fun and easy! Everything is laid out so simply and she will walk you through it all. From food and drink options, to linens and all the small detail work.Sent on 05/28/2019
She answered probably about 650 emails from us, usually with just one question in each :) sorry Jennifer! She was fast to respond with the answers we were looking for!
As far as the venue itself, we used the Tuscany room and Trellis. both were beautiful! The grounds are kept immaculate!
Tia Parziale was our day of coordinator, and just like Jennifer she was INCREDIBLE! Wedding day is such a stressful time, and she made sure every detail was tended to, even the last minute changes we threw at her! She kept the day moving, and kept everyone where they needed to be! There was a small misunderstanding with our bartender and she kept me informed and handled the solution nicely!
All the food was had was top notch and cooked to perfection. Appetizers: buffalo chicken blossoms, stuffed mushrooms, and sriracha avocado cucumber were all fantastic!
Soup was the apple butternut bisque (my favorite item of the night) and the salad was the watermelon blueberry feta, which was light and refreshing!
Dinner was chicken Marsala and the bistro sirloin. The steak was cooked beyond perfect (med/med rare) and was so tender. and the portion! wow do you get your money worth! I had guests telling me they felt bad they couldn't finish their meal! Much rather be told that, then complain there wasn't enough food! So, we'll take it!
**The only thing I need to mention about food is they did not have a legit steak knife come out with the steaks.. and although the steak was very tender, it was tough to cut through with the provided butter style knife. About halfway through the dinner I think enough people were asking for steak knifes where they just started to come around with them.. but It was a bit to late. I asked out server why they didn't have them out to begin with, and she mentioned big steak knifes don't look elegant on the table. I agree, and that's fine, but after dinner is served bring the steak knifes! Again, the steak was amazingly cooked, tender in the mouth and beyond flavorful! (Just ask for steak knifes right away).
Clean up was a breeze, I blinked twice and all our stuff was boxed up nicely by the staff and put into their holding closet for us to pick up the following morning.
The resort rooms were beautiful and well appointed. Beds were comfy and breakfast at Merrill's tavern was delicious!
I could honestly go on and on about Atkinson! Truly an amazing venue! DO NOT HESITATE to have your wedding or any event with them!
Thank you so much Jennifer and Tia for making out Wedding day everything we dreamed of and making it so easy!!!

Our wedding day was the most fun day of our lives. We owe it all to the wedding event planners, Jennifer and her team, at the Atkinson Resort & Country Club . They listened to all our wishes, concerns and offered their guidance and provided us with peace of mind. They made everything joyful and effortless plus stayed with in our budget. Our friends and family thought the venue was gorgeous and the food was superb. They still continue to talk about how amazing and fun our wedding was. We had a blast!
We can't say enough how pleased we were with Jennifer and her team of wedding event planners. They took all our worries away and made us feel very special. We would recommend them to everyone that wants a stress free wedding and a great place to hold a wedding

Atkinson was amazing! They handled everything perfectly and were so accommodating to my wedding party and my family. By the end of the weekend I felt like my coordinator, Tina was family. They were responsive immediately to all of my questions, and Jennifer the sales manager was able to help with anything I needed, including the rehearsal dinner. Thank you so much for making my wedding a dream wedding!Sent on 12/24/2018

Surpassed our expectations!
Had my wedding at Atkinson Resort & Country Club 10/20/2018 and the team there was amazing. Starting on the first day that we toured the venue right up to our wedding day, Jennifer was AMAZING to work with. She's was so patient with all of our questions, and she is very detail oriented. She even answered emails on her days off- seriously- I'm fairly certain within an hour or two she'd be sure to respond to me. When it came closer to the wedding, we were introduced to Julie who was our wedding day coordinator. She made sure she understood our vision, and the day went smoothly! All the staff at ACC were amazingly accommodating, and we can't thank them enough.Sent on 10/23/2018

Wedding coordinators Jennifer and Tina were SO AMAZING, they took care of absolutely everything, from the ceremony, to the seating arrangement to the pre-order drink list for the bridal party during cocktail hour!! They made made everything so organized and made being a bride so much easier ! I still recieve compliments on how phenomenal the food was! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding, I would absolutely recommend to anyone whos looking for a beautiful day!!Sent on 02/12/2019

We had our wedding on 9/8/18 at Atkinson Resort & Country Club. We went to them in June 2018 to ask for available fall dates. We got 9/8 and they did an amazing job with the short notice. Jennifer and her staff answered all questions, provided excellent ideas, etc. And I can't say enough about the attention to detail. And our wedding guests are still talking about the food, the best food they have ever had at a wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Atkinson Resort & Country Club for your wedding, big or small. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 02/21/2019

Exceeded Our Expectations
Venue: The Atkinson Resort and Country Club exceeded our expectations! From the scenic ride onto the property we knew that the Atkinson Resort and Country Club was special. Our room was spacious and modern which also included a private bridal suite. The Atkinson Resort and Country Club is open to the public for golf and has the Stage Coach Grille as well as the Tavern. Side note: Complimentary golf was included in our wedding package – major points with my fiancé.Sent on 02/27/2019
Wedding Sales Manager:
The Sales Manager Jen C. is absolutely amazing. I do not have enough accolades and praise to thank her for everything she did for our wedding. Jen is very easy to work with and is truly passionate about her job and very well organized. I cannot thank Jen enough for always being prompt in replying to e-mail and always available to answer (the many) questions we had. Jen is the best in the industry - hands down!
The food at the ARCC does not disappoint by any means. The food tasting was so much fun and all of the options were excellent and priced fairly. For the wedding we opted for the Station buffet vs. the plated meal. We wanted to ensure that all our guests had options and ate enough at our wedding. The station option also includes a mini pastry display so that we did not have to buy a huge wedding cake to feed everyone.
Julie A. the event coordinator is truly a blessing in disguise who made our wedding day perfect with attention to detail. Another major selling point for us to have our wedding at the ARCC is that the wedding package includes a day of event coordinator. For the actual wedding day, we had Julie from early afternoon up until the very end after midnight. I was upstairs with my bridal party and my fiancé and the groomsmen were in the bridal suite and it was like Julie was always in two places at once. Julie did so many things for us that day that I honestly do not know how we would’ve pulled off the wedding if it wasn’t for her! The experience with Julie was beyond personable. At the end of the night we went upstairs to our hotel room and Julie made sure to have two slices of our cake waiting for us with a beautiful hand-written note for us. It is the thoughtfulness and personal touches that make Julie an incredible event coordinator to work with.
Wedding day experience:
I have to say that my wedding day experience at the ARCC was impeccable, perfect, and a day I will remember forever. All of our guests continuously tell us that we had the best wedding and remark on the ARCC for the venue, food, service, and overall experience and service. The ARCC has a few items that you can ‘borrow’ for the day such as a card box, fun signage etc. The Trellis was stunning with the water fountain in the background and sunset views overlooking the golf course. We were also given access to the wine room which made for beautiful photos as well.
The ease and convenience of items that were cleaned up or left behind in the reception room are neatly placed into a secured storage area for pickup.
This venue is truly everything you could need for your entire wedding. Everyone at the Atkinson is so easy to work with and is attentive to anything that is needed or requested. I truly feel that the Atkinson Resort and Country Club holds a special place in our hearts and we have become lifetime patrons. You will NOT be disappointed in the least by choosing them to have your wedding.

I cannot sing my praises of Atkinson enough! We had planned for our wedding to be at the gazebo, but a sunny August day brought us thunderstorms and we had to go with Plan B inside. Since we had the "legacy" ballroom (food and beverage minimum met to open up the room to the Farview and the Brookside ballrooms) our coordinator rearranged the seats to face the beautiful draping and lights that separate the two rooms. Julie was so responsive to every detail and vendor that was coming and going on the wedding day that I didn't have to worry at all!! Our friends and family said the food was the best they have had at a wedding. We also had our rehearsal dinner at the Grille, and the food was amazing! It was SO convenient to stay in the hotel rooms upstairs! We checked in Thursday afternoon, golfed our complimentary round on the par 3 course, stayed for our rehearsal dinner, woke up on Friday morning and walked down to the bridal suite to get ready! The staff, the venue, the grounds, the food... everything was perfect. Best day ever!Sent on 09/12/2018

Had my wedding at Atkinson Resort & Country Club back in Jan. 2018 and the team there is amazing. From the first day that we toured the venue, Jennifer has been so patient with all of our questions. She is very detailed and wants the best for you on your wedding day. As we got closer to my wedding day, there was an issue that did not involve the venue whatsoever but she was there for me by listening to my rant even though it had nothing to do with her and the venue. This is what I call customer service! Thank you Jennifer for everything, you are the best! Everyone raved about the food, especially the ice cream truffles. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to eat the dessert as I was overwhelmed (in a good way) with our wedding day.Sent on 03/18/2018
Overall, I recommend Atkinson Resort & Country Club to everyone. You cannot go wrong with them. Thank you to everyone for making my day special :)

We had our wedding here in October and it was beyond perfect. From the first time I spoke to Jennifer up to our day, she very helpful and willing to answer any and all my questions. Her and Tina went above and beyond. They were very accommodating when my dad got sick and Jennifer even came up with a way for him to still walk me down the aisle. The waitstaff was very professional and friendly. The food was amazing and always is when we eat there. The grounds are well kept and made for awesome pictures. Tina was very attentive during the ceremony and reception making sure everything was perfect. I couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our wedding. Thank you so much!Sent on 01/24/2018

The Atkinson Country Club was the first venue we visited for our wedding. We felt in love with it and all the staff are amazing. It is a top-notch Country Club located in Atkinson NH. Jennifer Chipman was great, understanding all of our needs and questions. She answered is great answering emails and detailing everything that needs to be done. Kristen Sinnott was our wedding coordination She was absolutely amazing making sure all details were taken care of and making sure that we enjoyed every second of it. The food was delicious. I recommend The Atkinson Country Club to anyone looking for great service and elegance.Sent on 05/24/2018

I was married at Atkinson CC on 9/15/17 and it was the most amazing day of our lives. Jennifer and Julie were nothing short of spectacular. From the 1st time we went to Atkinson we were immediately sold on its exterior beauty then our meeting with Jennifer sealed the deal. She was so kind and sweet, organized, and has so much passion for wedding planning. We knew we could trust her. This was the 1st and only venue we looked at and we have no regrets! During planning all the way to the end of our wedding, every one from Jennifer and Julie, to the front desk staff, the pro shop, the tavern, and even all of the staff setting up and working our wedding - each and every one of them made us feel welcome, excited and stress free. Even a down pour right before our first look couldn't ruin our day! Jennifer rushed to get us umbrellas, Julie and her team set up a beautiful twinkle-lit back drop for our last minute indoor ceremony. Then they all worked together with our vendors to rearrange our game plan so we could get beautiful photos outdoors when the rain cleared after our ceremony. Friends and family raved about the service and the amazing food the next day, the food stations were a hit!Sent on 09/18/2017
All of the brides who I know told me about little things that were stressful on their wedding day. I can actually say that my wedding day was the most calm and least stressful day of my life. I didn't worry once. And I attribute that to the excitement to marry my best friend, awesome friends and family, a great venue and amazing vendors. We truly hit the jackpot. We stepped in to the photo booth and the end of the evening to get some photos and my husband looked at me and said "this truly has been the best day of my life" - he took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you so much to Atkinson CC, from the bottom of our hearts, you were a HUGE part of making 9/15/17 the best day of our lives! We would do it all again in a heartbeat.
Polina · Married on 09/01/2017
I got married at Atkinson on September 1 and it was the most amazing day and experience. From the first visit to the day of the people at Atkinson were amazing to work with. Jennifer the Event Manager was super responsive, they are so busy so scheduling can be a bit tough but they try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible. I'm Ukrainian so it was important for me to have some food from my culture and they were so accommodating in allowing us to bring in an outside caterer that provided some traditional food for our passed hors d'oeuvres. On the day of Julie was our coordinator and she was amazing. We have a large and loud family and they can be a lot to handle but she was amazing and somehow kept her cool. She made sure the day ran so smoothly and if there were any issues she handled them and made sure we were able to enjoy our night.Sent on 10/24/2017
We definitely went over our budget for this but it was 100% worth it. They do everything and will try their hardest to to make it happen if they don't. I would highly recommend them for any wedding or event.
Diane · Married on 08/26/2017
Atkinson takes your breath away with the scenery and the flowers all over the grounds! The staff are all friendly and really become more like a friend than a staff. The food also got great reviews from guests. Jennifer knows her stuff and she always will accommodate your needs the best she can (food, layout of ceremony, guest lists, etc). I could email Jennifer at all times of the day and she would answer me within 12 hours, but normally within 3 hours if it was a work day. When my parents met her she got them to feel so relaxed and that their needs were being taken care of and we were all laughing and having a good time. I pictured planning a wedding to be stressful and a "have to do" thing, but for me and with this staff it was the most enjoyable time of my life! I got to create my dream wedding and watch it come to life with the help of Atkinson. My wedding planner was Kristen and she too made my stress go away. She took care of everything during the rehearsal and wedding day and made sure everyone was where they needed to be. My friends and family all have stated how much they enjoyed the staff on my wedding and how friendly everyone was. They also couldn't get over how beautiful Atkinson was, so if you want to have your guests' breath taken away when they arrive to your venue and want them to be helped by friendly, outgoing staff, take a trip to Atkinson country club and talk to Jennifer!Sent on 10/15/2017

We have had the most amazing experience at Atkinson! It was the first and ONLY place we looked at! We first toured with Jennifer and she explained every aspect of the wedding. She answered any and all questions we came with and was super personable and sweet. We loved the venue right away, both the indoor and the outdoors spaces are gorgeous! We decided to book it at the end of the tour, its actually reasonable, by far the best value for wedding venue!! Jennifer was in contact with us before every major deadline, everything was explained super clearly and planning was made easy. I probably emailed Jennifer 1,000 times! They are unbelievably organized and all the paperwork was clearly labeled and very helpful. Throughout the year between booking and our wedding, we came to Atkinson several times to check if our centerpieces would look good and show loved ones the venue we fell in love with. Each time, whether We met with Jennifer or not, the staff was very accommodating and kind. We had our drop appointment the week of the wedding and it was a relief to be able to drop off everything (all decorations, guest book, place cards, etc.) and to only worry about ourselves the day of the wedding. Our day-of coordinator was Kristen and she was AMAZING! She somehow gathered our crazy large family and everything ran perfectly smoothly. She even held my drink while we took post-ceremony pictures! Overall Atkinson Resort and Country Club is amazing- it is the most beautiful venue for any wedding and their staff made everything easy!!!Sent on 10/18/2017

Jennifer Chipman is the head coordinator over at Atkinson. She was absolutely amazing! She had absolutely no problem responding to my emails late at night or over the weekend. She was accommodating to all of my crazy emails with last-minute requests. I would absolutely recommend this venue. The service was great and we had an awesome time. My friends and family said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Tina Ramey was our coordinator for the day and she kept everything moving smoothly and handled everything so that we could enjoy our day. Jennifer and Tina did an awesome job and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a great, memorable, STRESS-FREE wedding day. Thanks so much ladies!Sent on 09/27/2017

My husband and I got married and had our reception at Atkinson this past July and it was an absolutely perfect day. The wedding coordinators were exemplary- attentive and extremely professional. The entire day ran so smoothly and we owed it all to them. Thank you Jennifer and Kristen for helping make our day so special! Our reception was in the legacy ballroom- there was plenty of space for stations, tables and dancing. We received countless compliments from our wedding guests on the food and venue, specifically how delicious the station meals were (many saying it was the best wedding food they've ever had!). We have also been told by many guests that it was one of the most beautiful outdoor ceremonies they had been to- the grounds at Atkinson are so well kept and make for beautiful pictures. I highly recommend using them for both your wedding ceremony and reception!Sent on 09/26/2017

Jennifer was PHENOMINAL with helping us plan our wedding! We got a great deal and she gave us her best recommendations for options. Very open and honest; certainly not out just for money--she wanted to make sure we were happy and put our money in the right places. Julie (our wedding day coordinator) was great also. She was great explaining everyone's role during the rehearsal and the day of. She directed the photographer to AMAZING photo opportunities; she and the staff made sure my husband and I had everything we needed for our whole event. The only negative I have to say is when we paid for a light breakfast for the girls in the bridal suite while we got ready, and I was expecting more than 8 pastries (on the smaller side) and more than 1 tray of assorted fruit for 8 girls. But gave us plenty of OJ, coffee, and tea. We had our rehearsal dinner the night prior in the Wine Room, Carroll (our waitress) was wonderful! My husband and I have eaten there. A handful of times and I have yet to have a bad meal or bad service from any part of Atkinson. We had the stations buffet for our wedding and everything was DELICIOUS, definitely recommend the stations buffet..gave our guests a variety of foods to choose from. Highly recommend this venue for anyone looking to book their wedding or other events, or even just for breakfast,lunch, or dinner!

Everyone at the Atkinson country club was so nice and pleasant when we met them. We had a fall wedding so everything was indoors and when they showed us our rooms for the ceremony and reception we just knew this was the place to have our special day happen. They are very quick on responding to any question's or concerns and they accommodate respectfully. I'm overall pleased with my decision and if I could do it all over again I would choose to have my wedding there again. I would recommend this place to anyone it's a nice beautiful place to share your special day.Sent on 01/03/2017
