  • I was tipped off to Dexter's by a friend who had his wedding there years ago and thank god we got that recommendation! Dexter's is extremely reasonably priced and they do weddings there almost every weekend so John, the innkeeper, really knows how to ensure that things run smoothly. He acted as our silent operator day-of and prompted good questions during the planning process for us to think about. The property itself is gorgeous - beautiful view of Sunapee mountain, very well landscaped and SO MANY FUN GAMES (volleyball, tennis, cornhole, ping pong, etc). The 50 guests we had sleep at the inn actually got to know each other over the 3 days there. There is also a converted barn on site that is the perfect low-brow high-fun place to keep the party going late night. Thank you to everyone at Dexter's for their help and relatively relaxed attitudes during a weekend of extreme fun for us and our loved ones.

  • Dexter’s Inn is a hidden gem of a venue. We had our bridal party, parents and grandparents all stay on site for the entire weekend. We hosted a welcome party for out of town guests on the patio and got married on the beautiful grounds. Although the weather didn’t go exactly as planned, we still had a beautiful ceremony under the tent which transformed into an even better reception space. If you are looking for somewhere you can actually spend time with your guests. This is it!! Also, John the inn keeper is extremely knowledgeable and ensures your weekend goes as planned.

  • I could never have expected our wedding to be so perfect. We used Dexter’s Inn as our venue, had it for the full weekend, and had the best time. John made sure the events ran smoothly and was very on top of it, taking the time to communicate leading up to the date so we both were on the same page. Between John, the staff and venue, the weekend went better than we could have ever imagined.

  • When it came to finding a venue for our wedding we only looked at two venues. When we first drove up to Dexter’s Inn, it had such a great location that felt so relaxing and inviting. The innkeeper John, was so flexible, professional and really made our wedding amazing. From all of our changes we faced, John was so flexible and was so easy to work with....he not only met with us and helped us with our timeline, but he was constantly working throughout the weekend, always around to answer questions and really was apart of our day....John truly loves what he does and takes great pride in Dexter’s Inn. I would highly recommend taking a tour of Dexter’s Inn with John, because he shows you so much and gives you all the information you will need to make a choice. I know we will return to Dexter’s Inn many times in the future because of how amazing our weekend was. So if your looking for a place to create a lasting memory you need to go to Dexter’s Inn, great food, great people, very... Read more

  • We held our wedding on Labor Day weekend 2018. Lots of out of town guests so we were able to fill the Inn with family and friends over the weekend. John allowed the grounds to be available to all friends and guests - regardless of where they stayed - for the whole weekend. Although daunting to me to plan a wedding for 100 guests, John assisted us every step of the way. He helped by gently nudging us as the date got closer, helping us to organize and think through the various details of the weekend. The entire Dexter's staff is ever-present yet unobtrusive. During the day of the wedding, John quietly helped me to keep us on "schedule" moving from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner smoothly. He even watched our wedding rehearsal and helped with the little details like where to walk from, pacing of the bridesmaids, etc. The daily breakfast is a great benefit for all guests. Allowed us to all meet in the morning as people planned their day. We also used Rolfe - the in house ca... Read more

  • Dexter's Inn was the most wonderful wedding venue I could have ever imagined. We had the Inn for the entire weekend, which allowed for us to have quality time with friends and family who traveled from all over the country to be with us for our wedding. The party started on Thursday night and lasted through Sunday morning. The buffet style breakfasts were delicious and cozy. The setting is drop dead gorgeous. Our wedding was 10/14/17 and the fall colors were spectacular! John, the inn keeper is a pleasure to work with. He has tons of experience, so he helped us organize every little detail. Dexter's is also great because you can decorate however you like and cater the venue to your style. We had lots of DIY projects going on! We hired the catering at Dexter's for both the Friday night welcome dinner and the wedding reception. Rolf, the head chef was also a pleasure to work with and the food was delicious. Our guests are still ranting and raving about our wedding. We love Dexter's and we... Read more

  • Dexters inn was the best place to have my wedding. I had so many compliments on my venue, and everyone who stayed the weekend loved it. If you want to design your own wedding grounds this is your place. John let us decorate the grounds how we wanted and was very helpful. It was perfect.

  • We were married at the beautiful Dexter's Inn in Sunapee New Hampshire on 5/20/17. We reserved the entire Inn for the wedding weekend and our guests LOVED it. Spectacular grounds with breathtaking views. The quaint rooms were very clean, staff was attentive and friendly, breakfast was amazing. The planning of the wedding itself was superbly coordinated by the Inn Keeper, John Augustine...who thought of every detail and was so kind and friendly and laid back. We used the Inn's caterer for both the wedding and a friday night rehearsal get together. Rolf, the chef wad schmidts catering was an absolute joy to work with as was his pleasant staff and the food was EXCELLENT!! The pricing for the food, the Inn itself and wedding overall was FAR more reasonable than you would expect. We were treated like family the entire weekend. I highly recommend it.

  • We chose Dexter's because of the stunning view and the ability to house such a large amount of people. With almost 85% of the wedding guests flying in from out of state it was really important to us to have a whole weekend and make it as easy and comfortable for them as possible. The Innkeeper, John, is incredible and so flexible and helpful. We actually ended up having the worst weather imaginable on our wedding day - heavy raining and freezing temps - so we were unfortunately forced to get married in the tent, but John was fast to react and made sure our day went incredibly smoothly. John works with you to figure out all the rentals, and actually tries to save you money in the process. Our guests loved staying there and checkin/checkout process was smooth and relaxed. The best part of the space is that you can really customize your day to whatever you and your fiance desire, and we both loved having that freedom! He also was able to book our reception bartender for us who was incredi... Read more

  • Dexter's Inn was the absolute perfect setting for our September wedding. We had fallen in love with the inn in 2013 at my husband's brother's wedding -- so when it came time to booking a venue for ourselves, it was a no-brainer! We had the entire inn to ourselves from Friday to Sunday, so our families and friends were able to relax, enjoy the scenery, play lawn games, and just spend time with each other. The views are absolutely breathtaking, and the Inn itself has so much character. The mountains of Sunapee were the perfect backdrop for our outdoor wedding, and the convenience of walking across a dirt road to the reception tent is unbeatable. The after-party in the "barn" (ping pong, pool, foosball, etc.) was a huge hit with all our guests :) John, the innkeeper was so fantastic to work with. We were kind of clueless with the planning process, and John was so experienced and organized that he made it so easy for us to know which steps to take when -- answering all our questions qui...

  • Dexter's Inn was the most spectacular and fun place to host our wedding weekend! Gorgeous views and grounds. John at Dexter's was professional, made sure everything went smooth all weekend, and was helpful every step of the way. We had the entire inn and grounds for 2 nights. It was important to us to be able to have more than just our wedding to spend time with our friends and family. There are 16 rooms and a 2 bedroom cottage that our guests could stay in. There are dog friendly rooms too. We played lawn games all day, hung at the pool, played in the game room all night, and had all our wedding events right there on site. It was truly epic and memorable. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfy. Breakfast is included with the rooms and was delicious. We had Dexter's cater our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. For the price, everything was great!!! They really took care of everything and coordinated with all of of vendors. The planning process went... Read more

  • Perfect wedding location. It offered beautiful scenery and was completely private for our guests! John acted as a wedding coordinator throughout our wedding planning process and kept us organized! It probably would have been chaos if it were not for him! He has a lot of experience and made things completely non-stressful!

  • I can't say enough good words about my wedding experience at Dexter's Inn!! It was the perfect venue - beautiful, fun, friendly & helpful staff!! John is excellent. I planned my wedding from Colorado and he made the experience stress-free. He is professional, communicates well and often, helpful, knowledgable, extremely flexible, and welcoming. His calm demeanor helped me stay calm too all weekend, and he even served as a day-of wedding planner and vendor coordinator. He even facilitated our entire ceremony rehearsal!! It was obvious the work and care he puts into the Inn, and he put the same work and care into our wedding weekend. We filled all the rooms with guests starting Friday, and held both our ceremony on reception on property - I couldn't have asked for better, and all our guests loved it!! It has more character than an average hotel, while being completely comfortable, and the property is unbelievably stunning!! Rolf Schmidt, the in-house caterer, is an excellent choice... Read more

  • My husband Mark and I were married at Dexter's Inn in September of 2014. John and his staff made our wedding weekend the best weekend of our lives. The location is beautiful and the quality of the service is incredible. We never once had any stress about our venue because John made it so easy to plan and organize the weekend of our dreams. I would tell anyone wanting an outdoor wedding to marry at Dexter's Inn!!

  • Dexter’s Inn was a wonderful place to have our summer wedding! They rent out the entire Inn for just our wedding and guests. The grounds and views are spectacular. There is tons for guests to do, including swimming, tennis, shuffleboard, and several other lawn games. The food served was amazing. Rolf did a fantastic job for both the rehearsal and the reception. The spicy mac and cheese was amazing! John even helped us to arrange for babysitters to provide a kids’ reception for the many kids we had attending. The babysitters did a phenomenal job and had many activities for the kids. The tented reception was beautiful and the staff was great. If you are looking for beautiful setting for a New England wedding then Dexter’s is the place!
