  • the Thompson Inn exceeded all of our expectations! from start to finish, Lori, Stephanie, Kamini, and the entire team made the whole weekend run smoothly, allowing us to enjoy ourselves to the fullest! All the staff was wonderful and so thoughtful, always thinking one step ahead. The venue itself is absolutely magical - we had a late fall wedding (described as hygge by others) and it perfectly fit our atmosphere. Our guests loved having little side rooms in which they could have more private conversations. And even though the main reception area is "live" the accoustics were great and it was never too loud. The real bonus was having the Inn right there, where our family and bridal party stayed. It made everything so easy to have everyone in one place - and we kept the party going after the wedding with fun games! All the rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We can't recommend The Thompson Inn highly enough - thank you to Lori and the entire team - our weeke... Read more

  • The Thompson Inn was the most amazing venue for our wedding. The location is perfect - close to our Catholic Church in Newmarket (2.4 miles away!!), to a hotel for guests (3 miles), and to small business / restaurants in Downtown Durham and Newmarket (3 miles). The local towns near by, really help guests to make a weekend out of the trip - there is so much to do and see! The staff was professional, thoughtful, and creative. They worked with us to truly make our Wedding Day dreams come true. Side notes: We have a unique extended family, lots of young cousins... We were able to use the room downstairs to host the kids 2yrs-16yrs for dinner - thus the upstairs still felt kid free. We had "babysitters" from UNH to guide arts and crafts for the younger kiddos. The large yard, kept the older kids outside playing games. We had our grandparents staying on the first floor of the Inn onsite, so when they were tired, they could easily scoot away. We also hosted a Wine Tasting in the Wine Cellar ... Read more

  • I could write a novel about how absolutely wonderful this venue is. Between Steve, Lori, Stephanie, Kamini and all others that run the show here, our special day was more than we could have asked for. The grounds are absolutely stunning and cared for on a daily basis. Having the ability to utilize the Inn for two nights was just perfect and having just ONE wedding per weekend makes it feel like the world is revolving around you for a whole two days. The coordinators, both during the planning process and day off, can't be beat. They made our day as low stress as it could have ever been. I can't recommend this venue enough. If you have the opportunity to have your special day here, I highly recommend it. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

  • 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.

  • 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 ... Read more

  • We could not be happier with how our day turned out! Our wedding being in December had a lot of questionable factors, weather being one of them, but Lori and Steve were able to pull it off with ease. They worked tirelessly to get everything ready and were on site from the very beginning to the last minute of the reception. The combination of the Inn for family and friends to stay at and the gorgeous Cyderhouse for the reception made it so enjoyable. We had a couple of changes to the average wedding timeline so we were thrilled with how it was executed. Our first dance and entrance was done during cocktail hour in the beautiful bar lobby with guests looking on from everywhere. They were above in the loft area, on the stairs, and all around. For the reception we requested a very different floor plan from what the team was used to and it went incredibly smoothly from set up to dinner service. They were able to recommend amazing vendors that we would not have found on our own. They... Read more

  • We could not have asked for a better experience at the Thomson Inn for our special day! The owners Lori and Steve treated us like family and worked tirelessly to make sure everything was seamless. I would recommend this venue a thousand times over.

  • 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!

  • 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 ... Read more

  • The over view and pictures do not do this place justice!! We got married this August and even with the rain we could not have been happier. Lori and Stephanie were great always there to answer any questions and happy to help in any way. The food was amazing we did family style and people loved it. It was of course warm and delicious. It all came out quickly and effortlessly so we could all eat and get on to the party! We booked for 6 months out and it was a breeze to put together the most wonderful wedding!! We were all relaxed and able to enjoy ourselves the entire time. I wish we could re do the whole day over and over again!

  • We just had our wedding at the Thompson Inn (7/21/18). Lori, Steve and all the staff at the Thompson Inn were fantastic to work with. By the end of planning, Lori felt like family!! The Thompson Inn was the first venue I visited after getting engaged last summer. The property and grounds are STUNNING. I KNEW it was the one! The barn was not finished yet but we were assured it would be ready in plenty of time for our wedding. We had originally planned to use the Inn on the property (as it was supposed to be completely rehabbed and completed by Memorial Day 2018). Unfortunately, we found out early in 2018 that the Inn wouldn't be ready for the wedding. We were completely bummed - but luckily, there was a nearby Inn that was able to house all our wedding party (and it ended up working out just fine). Everyone RAVED about the Thompson Inn - how gorgeous the grounds are, how beautiful the barn is and how helpful and friendly all the staff was. We lucked out as we had the PERFECT July we...

  • Our organization just had a fundraising event at this stunning venue. Everything went off without a hitch! We were a little worried since it was a new chef but the food was delicious! Many donors commented on the variety and taste of the food options. The staff also worked very hard at keeping everything full and hot! I wouldn't hesitate to book an event here again. Thank you Lori and Steve and your staff for an amazing meal and a great event!
