We held a "rehearsal dinner" in the Presidential Ballroom, the wedding in the garden, the reception in the Crystal ballroom, and a brunch in the Crystal ballroom. The food was well presented, delicious and generous. The service was excellent. The staff was, without exception, professional and exceptionally curtious. From the initial planning, through the bumps that happen when planning a large event, to a return trip after the wedding to gather forgotten items, the staff was accommodating and supportive. Our guests are still raving about this wonderful resort.

The hotel and the staff were outstanding for our December 2017 wedding. Our wedding coordinator Chastity Marrier was truly exceptional. She handled every detail with professionalism and went over and above accommodating last minute changes and unique requests. Thanks to her the event was beautiful, fun and stayed on time without feeling rushed. Another vendor we used had this to say about Chastity: "I've done lots of events at this hotel and she is by far the best wedding coordinator I've dealt with there." I agree! I am so glad we chose the Mountain View Grand for our wedding and I'd definitely hold another function there if the occasion arose.

Our wedding planner, Errin, provided us with exceptional service and did an outstanding job. She kept us on target throughout the entire process from the very beginning. You always hope and pray that everything will fall into place and that your guests will have a good time. Our guests raved about how good the food was including the cake that Sabrina created. The wait staff were awesome! I would recommend the Mountain View Grand to anyone looking for a place to hold a wedding or any other type of party. We had our rehearsal dinner their the night before our wedding and the food and service was great. We had so much fun that we made reservations for the wine cellar that same weekend and was surprised to find that each location had their own menu choices. Overall, the entire weekend was so successful and so much like a fairytale.

Our small wedding at the MVG was absolutely breath taking. The views are the reason we traveled the three hours there, but the staff is what made our day perfect. We opted for a small 30 person wedding, and the staff was extremely attentive, while letting us do our own thing and go at our own pace. There was a change in staff from when I booked our wedding to the day of, but communication was completely open and constantly maintained. Managing everything out of state was stress-free thanks to the MVG staff. I wouldn't change a thing.

We booked the Mountain View Grand a week after getting engaged. It is a beautiful, well-maintained vintage hotel with impeccable service and facilities. Although it was a bit of a drive for some of our friends and family, it was well worth the trip for our guests. Rachel Manners and her event staff are incredible to work with. Rachel went out of her way to make sure that all of our needs were met within our budget. Our wedding was a fairytale come true; we couldn't have been happier.

We had a wonderful experience getting married at the MVG. The staff was super friendly and helpful throughout the entire planning process. The venue itself is breathtaking. We got married in at the Grand Fountain Terrace and our reception was in the Crystal Ballroom. Both venues are the perfect mixture of mountains and elegance. I would not recommend getting a manicure at the hotel Spa... just find a spot before you get there. The color selection was not stellar and the manicure itself was a bit sloppy. Besides that one little hiccup, the whole day went perfectly. Thank you MVG for giving us the perfect backdrop for our day!

We had a wonderful wedding thanks to the Mountain View Grand employees. They provided excellent service to our guests especially those that were older and need the extra help they had a wheel chair ready for my mom and one of the bartenders even went to a store to get a heating pad for another one of our guest during her lunch break. They did an excellent job on keeping us informed and on track of what we were suppose to be doing and even when things didn't happen on time we weren't rushed at all. Although this was a very elegant venue everyone made us very comfortable. All our guests have commented how unique & beautiful the resort is and that they would return to visit. Both of us couldn't have wished for a more perfect wedding than what we experienced at the Mountain View Grand.

Rachel and the entire staff at the Mountain View Grand were wonderful. I felt heard, cared about, and relaxed about the entire day. The food was amazing and the cake was incredible. I am gluten-free and the entire catering staff was so accomodating! We can't wait to go back to celebrate our anniversary!

Our wedding was absolutely perfect and our experience with the Mountain View Grand was a joy from the first phone call to the morning after brunch. The venue itself is stunningly beautiful inside and outside; even if you don't put up a speck of decor your wedding will be beautiful simply thanks to the venue. The Mountain View staff went above and beyond our high expectations, every person involved with bringing our event together did a phenomenal job and were a genuine pleasure to work with. The food was to die for, and our wedding cake was as delicious as it was beautiful. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a New England wedding, not only is it a great value, it is the most beautiful venue in New England with an incredibly friendly and professional staff. You will be in good hands at the Mountain View Grand and can rest easy knowing that your event will come together flawlessly.

My husband and I were very particular when searching for a venue to host our wedding. We looked at MANY resorts in the New England area and as soon as we drove up to the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa and had our initial tour, we KNEW in that instant we had found the PERFECT venue to celebrate such a special day. Our "Must Haves" included finding a resort that had a "Grand" entrance, a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains (the MVG is surrounded by 57 peaks!), a breathtaking ballroom with plenty of windows to enjoy the views, delicious food, plenty of hotel rooms to make it convenient for our guests, on-site dining and taverns (the MVG has MANY options!) and a spa/salon where I could get ready the day of my wedding. Basically we were searching for a grand resort with "one-stop shopping" conveniences so that everything was on-site. Another huge "must have" for us, was finding a venue where the customer service was extraordinary! We had a WONDERFUL experience at the MVG and made friends throughout the process!
Now the food....WOW!!!! the food was AMAZING......TOP QUALITY and just DELICIOUS!!! We received a TON of comments from our guests RAVING about the food we served at our wedding. I would also like to take this moment to talk about the MVG's off-season rates. As I mentioned in the beginning of my review, we had toured MANY resorts in the New England area, and the MVG package was the most economical and they offered the nicest packages. The elegance, charm, class and history that the MVG offers is second to none. My husband and I look forward to visiting the MVG at LEAST once a year and we already have several family members and friends who have told us they are already looking into returning!
I can't say enough about the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa, other than...if you are looking for an elegant world class venue to host your wedding (with breathtaking views) , schedule a tour and go see it for yourself! You won't be disappointed!

We got married at the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa (MVG), in Whitefield, NH in June 2014. When we visited the MVG, we met with Allison Duffy and Susannah and by the end of our tour, we were both speechless. Not only was MVG absolutely beautiful, with stunning views, it also had the perfect atmosphere for us: a causal elegance. All of the staff we met were extremely friendly and welcoming. Once we deciding on MVG as our venue, everything else fell into place and the rest of the planning process was smooth sailing. Allison really helped us organize our plans and answered any questions we had about set up, scheduling and vendors, and was very responsive and helpful. Christina from reservations actually personally went into each of the rooms we were thinking about to give us a detailed description of each room, and which one she thought would be best suited for what we were looking for (her room pick was perfect). We also worked with the Spa for massages, nails and hair and make-up for all of the hair and make-up for several groomswomen, the mother of the groom and several aunts who were part of the ceremony. Everyone finished on time and the hair and make-up looked beautiful. All of the other services, especially the massages, were amazing. The whole day was like a dream come true - we don’t think we could have imagined a more beautiful and fun wedding if we tried!

As a busy professional couple, we knew we wanted a venue that was elegant, easy and affordable. It took us all of 30 seconds after meeting Susannah and seeing the Mountain View Grand to make our decision. This was IT. We worked with Susannah to develop our vision and then left the rest to her. Susannah and the staff was amazing; professional, available to us for questions and concerns at all times, and always friendly. By the time we got to our big day, every single detail was in order. From flowers hair and nails to the cake (maple with maple buttercream frosting), to seating guests and getting a nervous bride to her groom the wedding went off without a single hitch. And the day was completed with chocolate covered strawberries served with chilled champagne and a lovely handwritten note thanking us for choosing MVG as our venue. Many of our guests stayed at the resort with us and were thrilled. There is a lovely indoor swimming pool that the children enjoyed, a theater with melt into them comfy chairs, axe throwing competitions (yup, you heard me), snowmobiling, sliding, skating and bonfire every night complete with smores.
I would recommend it to anyone and any time of the year. Susannah, Tara and Haley were amazing!!! Love them all!!!

My wedding was the most amazing day! Susannah at MVG was really wonderful to work with. She was patient and understanding, as well as extremely helpful, responsive, and organized. She was very genuine, authentic, and easy to work with. I hate to say anything negative about having a wedding at MVG but as with any wedding, there are always glitches in the planning. The negatives are solely isolated issues because 150 guests are still talking about how it was one of the best weddings that they have ever been to and the most beautiful and wonderful setting. People loved the staff at MVG and they LOVED the food- for regular meals as well as for the reception. The food was really unbelievably delicious. My brother in law is a chef and owns a high end restaurant-and he didn't have one complaint or criticism about the food! The food and alcohol packages are consistent with other venues and you really get your money's worth. In the end, if there were any problems, the hotel was always understanding and accommodating.

The staff was so helpful and friendly. They were laid back, allowing us to set up the room early and making our guests comfortable. I would do it again at mountain view grand in a heartbeat!
Michael · Married on 10/05/2013
We had such a great wedding! Thank you so much for all your hard work. The guests loved the hotel and your attention to detail made for perfection. We could have for a better day, your suggestions on vendors was impeccable. Top notch!!
Megan · Married on 10/04/2013
The Mountain View Grand is amazing. They went above and beyond on every level. For example, we had extra desserts at our rehearsal dinner, and they refrigerated them and delivered them to our rooms the next day so we could enjoy them while we got ready. They set everything up without us having to get involved (microphone, speaker, projectors, etc.). If you're planning to do a golf event, however, have those guests who own clubs bring them along - there are a limited number of rental clubs.
All in all - it is an excellent place to get married - beautiful, of course, as well as excellent service on every level.
Brittany · Married on 09/21/2013
Our wedding was everything we had dreamed of and more! The staff went above our expectations for our wedding and our stay at the Mountain View Grand. It was definately worth every penny!

Wonderful staff made our day perfect and worry-free. Couldn't have chosen a better venue. Food was amazing and the garden was a beautiful spot for our ceremony. I wouldn't change a thing about our experience.

Fabulous and gorgeous venue. Staff was excellent to work with, very accommodating, and professional. Made our wedding fairytale a reality!
Holly · Married on 05/04/2013
I was married at Mountain View Grand this past spring and I still have family and friends commenting on how much fun they had at my reception. The food was excellent, the views and scenery are breathtaking and the planning process was nothing but fun. On the actual day of my wedding I felt relaxed and at ease because everyone that you work with up until the day is organized. Susannah Powell was my wedding coordinator and her expertise and professionalism was very helpful all throughout my planning. Susannah was very accomodating to many of my ideas and is very creative with putting all of the pieces together to make for a perfect day.
I could not have asked for better weather on my wedding day. Cocktail hour was outside on the grounds which is beautiful. All of the guests marveled at the 360 degree view of the Presidential Mountains which is quite impressive and unique to MVG. Imagine a sunny day in early May with snow covered mountains as your back drop? The pictures to capture the moment were priceless.
The crystal ballroom is elegant and held my reception perfectly. The dancefloor is ready for a party and the crystal chandelier hanging from the cathedral ceilings makes for a perfect venue. I could not imagine a better place to marry my best friend.
For guests, they can stay at the resort and participate in many of the offered activites or sleep in and enjoy a late breakfast on the veranda. There is so much for everyone and the best part is that EVERYBODY at the resort is there to see that you have a great time. I have stayed here a few times as a guest prior to getting married and still felt like I received bridal treatment. Mountain View Grand is a classy place and I highly recommend for all brides to check it out.

We just our wedding at the MVG in July, and it was amazing! Angela Poulin, our coordinator, did a fantastic job with every aspect. Not a single complaint; thank you MVG for making our day so special!
Leah · Married on 09/24/2010
We had our wedding here in september and all I can say is everyone was amazing. We had Lisa Tetreault as our planner from the resort and anything we wanted she made come true for us.
Sarah · Married on 05/22/2010
We had the wedding of our dreams! The setting was absolutely beautiful, the food was delicious, there were tons of activities on site for our guests, the staff was wonderful...we just can't say enough about the MVG and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a fairytale wedding that will keep your friends and family talking for weeks!
