We absolutely loved our wedding venue at Atkinson Country Club! My mom, my bridesmaids & I stayed in the suites the night before my wedding (we did a noon wedding on a Sunday for the mid day package). The rooms were huge & very clean! In the morning we used the bridal suite (7 bridesmaids, flower girl, 2 mothers) as some of us got ready (we had 3 stylists come to the bridal suite), others ate breakfast in the separate but attached room. We used our breakfast vouchers & got 5 full meals for about $10! The bridal suite is wonderful with a bathroom, vanity area, & balcony overlooking our reception hall while it gets set up. The ceremony site we used was the trellis area & we had the Farview stateroom for our reception. Both sites were amazing. We are still getting compliments on how gorgeous the ceremony site was & the grounds at the Atkinson Country Club. The farview state room has huge windows looking out to our ceremony site & also a patio area that our guests were able to utilize. The bathrooms are huge! We had about 14 guest tables in there quite comfortably with 8-12 people per table. We had a big wedding party and they worked with us every step of the way to make our head table work, because my husband & I didn't want to be at a sweetheart table alone. We ended up with 13 of our bridesmaid & groomsm3n on one long table floor level, & then on a riser behind that sat my husband & I & the maid of honor & best man. After the wedding we went to the Tavern for snacks & drinks & they accommodated about 15 of us there as well. We stayed over in the suites that night & we entered our room to find chilling bottle of champagne & our cake topper already in our fridge! The next day we had lunch at the tavern again & the food was great! I also cannot say enough great things about Jennifer Chipman. She worked with us pretty much from day one &answered god knows how many questions for me every week. She is always so friendly & patient & really put us at ease every step of the way. She said to me on numerous occasions to stop apologizing for all my questions because I had never done this before & I am not expected to just know the answers to things, she is truly a gem. Anne Bouileu the wedding coordinator kept things running smoothly during my drop appointment, our rehearsal, ceremony & reception too! Thank you so much Atkinson Country Club for making our day so fun & such a great memory for us & our loved ones!
My April 26th wedding didn't turn out sunny and bright as I hoped. I have no control over the weather. However,my wedding day is a day I will remember forever. Jennifer Chipman was an absolute gem to work with. Returning emails promptly and going above and beyond to make sure all guests were accomodated for food allergies and that I had exactly what I wanted for a sheer overlay.
The food was delicious and the servers were sure to wait to serve the entree's until the Bride and Groom were ready to sit. When we were served they were very aware of when we got up to talk to guest that they didn't take anything before asking if we were done.
The bridal suite was set up just the way we wanted it and the servers that we had during our coktail hour were wonderful, eapecially when I was demanding a beer after family photos. :)
All in all I am glad I was able to afford a wedding at the place I wanted to get married. Atkinson is beautiful and I would get married there again and again.
My husband and I can not say enough good things about the Atkinson Resort and Country Club. Our wedding on 9/28/13 in the Brookside Room was out of this world. The coordinators and staff were beyond helpful, the food was outstanding, and the overall atmosphere was just amazing. Our family and friends kept remarking (and still are!) at how lucky we were to have found Atkinson. It had everything we pictured for our special day--a gorgeous ceremony location, a beautiful reception area with a deck overlooking the golf course, and guest rooms that were comfortable and very convenient for our guests and wedding party. As the bride, I expected to be frantic, nervous, and maybe even slightly a bridezilla. But the whole day my family and friends kept remarking at calm I was, and it was because I knew we had nothing to worry about--the coordinators and staff were that great! 5 stars for Atkinson :)
I could not have asked for a more perfect venue. From start to finish, Jennifer was there every step of the way! Emails answered late at night, dealing with crazy last minute details... and even some stupid questions (although she promised there was no such thing!) She was always on top of when I needed to meet or make any decisions. I can't tell you how many emails were exchanged! From the second you walk in, to the second you leave, everyone is friendly and attentive.
We were able to get ready in the bridal suite area... plenty of space for 10 people (bride, bridesmaids, jr. bridesmaids), hair dressers and make-up artists to hang out.
We had our ceremony in the trellis area. GORGEOUS. The landscaping and fountain made for an incredible backdrop. My pictures are beautiful and my guests loved it! Our reception was held in the Legacy Ballroom. The set up was beyond perfect. We fit 20 tables easily and even had an extended dance floor. The food was delicious. (We actually had a few minutes to enjoy our meal- thanks to Katie!) The late night snacks were a huge hit! My guests couldn't believe it when they came out! There are so many choices on the menu, they are able to cater to any couples needs.
Katie was my day of coordinator...I don't know what I would have done without her! At one point during pictures, she could tell I was getting a little overwhelmed... she handed me a glass of wine and my husband a beer! Katie somehow made it feel like all of the pressure and stress was off my shoulders. It was like she could read my mind. I really could go on for hours! She was my saving grace!
Atkinson Country Club went above and beyond all of my expectations. Jennifer was always welcoming, willing to help with anything you could ever need and always willing to answer any questions. Katie was my right hand the day of. I really could not have asked for a more picture perfect wedding day! I highly recommend Jennifer, Katie and Atkinson Country Club for your special day... you will not be disappointed!
The Atkinson Resort and Country Club was hands down the best possible choice for our wedding. From the time we walked through the doors to take a tour, everyone we worked with was so welcoming and friendly. The ceremony spaces and ballrooms are so unique and breathtaking. Friends and family are still telling us that our wedding was the best they have ever been to! The food choices are extensive and oh-so-delicious. The Atkinson offered multiple different wedding packages so they can cater to any couple's needs! I definitely recommend the Atkinson to be the first and only place you look at for your wedding!
When people ask how was your wedding? I find myself say "good". Not great, blast or even amazing. I find myself talking more about how amazing my photo/video- orgaphers were and not mentioning anything about the food, service or attention to detail. It was PERFECT weather but NOT SERVICE.
It started at check in, the front desk was rude and unaccommodating. I had 6 rooms the night prior and all 15 the Saturday. However no one could check in early to get ready as they held tight to 3pm as check in. My wedding started at 4pm and pictures at 2pm so the guys got dressed in the bridal room and I got ready in my unserviced hotelroom.
BEWARE if your have guests with allergies. I had 3 gluten free and when I listed them I expected the whole meal to be accomidated not just entree. We chose lobster ravs for first course. Upon asking a server for the GF option the delivered Tomato/Basil/Mozzarella Skewers over a wedge of lettuce (it looked like it came from the hors d'oeuvres). And our second course was a salad. They forgot the special GF desserts we purchased and served the wedding cake so we had to remind them yet again.
Cristy our day of organizer was so overwhelmed. She never stepped up and took the lead; the bridal party was confused, disorganized and late because she was not ready. Not to mention she never cued my bag piper so I walked down the aisle to nothing. I had some unique items worked into my reception such as a pinata cake and live artist however I feel they were over shadowed by constant mistakes.
Wine Service was included in our package. Well it wasnot served till well after all the meals had been served. So most guests went up to the bar to get a glass which just cut deeper into the open bar.
BEWARE IF YOU HAVE OPEN BAR. Guests from the other party were "crashing to get drinks from our "open bar". Groomsmen in cowboy hats and powderblue vest were continually served and helped themselves to our cigar bar as well. NO ONE IN MY PARTY WORE VESTS OR HATS!!! I personally had to ask guests to leave. I found the banquet captain (not cristy the absent coordinator) and she asked me to describe what they were wearing & where they were and let her know if I saw anyone else (its NOT my job to patrol for crashers) I'm the BRIDE!! The other wedding also signed my monogram guest book and drew boobs on it... how do I hang that up now?
The Drama goes on... but mostly dissapointed with the manor in which Atkinson, Jennifer and Cristy handled my complaint. I sell, organize and host weddings at my property weekly and would bend over backwards to correct an error our fault or not as it reflects the business. They had the controller answer our concerns and never once returned my call or set a time to speak. The gave me a 2.8% refund & 2rounds of golf (oh the 2 rounds we couldnt use because it was member guest weekend & they didnt tell us tee times werent available in the morning until we went to book then a few weeks out).
I will say the landscape is beautiful NICE JOB GROUND CREW!!
ATKINSON COUNTRY CLUB BANQUET AND EVENT STAFF WAS NOT IMPRESSIVE.
Atkinson was perfect from the beginning to end of our wedding process! We worked with Jen the year leading up, and Julie on the day of, and both were absolutely fantastic! The venue is beautiful, they were promt, flexible, professional and informative whenever we had questions. The gazebo side, where we had our ceremony is perfect as it offers tiered seating so everyone gets a great view. On the day of, it was downpouring rain about 20 minutes before the ceremony was due to begin. We had settled that it would have to be inside at that point, but when the storm passed, the staff quickly worked to clean off all the chairs, and we were able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony.
We got married on a Friday, which allowed us to have access to the Bridal Suite all day which was a big help.
There are also so many beautiful locations for photos!
Thank you to Atkinson and all of your staff, especially Jen and Julie!
I can't enough wonderful things about the Atkinson Resort & Country Club and their amazing staff and service. Jennifer Chipman and Cristy Bergeron were so professional, accomodating, detailed and delightful to work with. The food was absolutely delicious for our guests. They made our wedding day the most perfect day we could have imagined! Top class!
We loved Atkinson Country Club right away and we are so glad we decided to hold our wedding there! Everything was beautiful! The food was excellent! The staff is very professional! We received so many comments about how beautiful everything looked and how great the food was! Jennifer Chipman was also a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had during the planning process!
I couldn't have asked for more from the staff they were amazing and it was such a beautiful night!
Everything about Atkinson country club was great! Everyone we came in contact with was personal and professional from start to finish. I did not need to worry or stress because everything was taken care of. Coordinators were kind and personable. Facility was beautiful and the rooms were comfortable and cozy. I highly recommend Atkinson country club to celebrate your special day!
We recently held our wedding at Atkinson Resort and Country Club (11/2/2013). From the beginning of the planning, the staff at Atkinson were excellent. We do not live in the immediate area; therefore email and phone communication was vital in the planning process. The staff were responsive to all questions related to changing/modifying plans. We dealt directly with Jennifer Chipman during the initial planning, who was a pleasure to work with and made planning such a big event (200 guests) effortless. The food menu and selection was something that originally “sold” us at Atkinson Resort and CC and it did not disappoint! Weeks after the wedding, our guest are still commenting about the quality and taste of the food from the cocktail hour appetizers to dinner. We chose to have stations which provided our guests with a large selection of options. All the food items were served fresh, hot and quickly. The butternut apple bisque was a HUGE hit. In addition to the excellent food, our guest also enjoyed the martini ice luge which was something that added a special focus during cocktail hour.
The actual property at Atkinson Resort & Country Club is ideal for weddings. The large bridal suite was essential for the bridal party to come together to get ready, the large reception and cocktail rooms provided enough space for guest to mingle and the overall property provided the perfect backdrop for photos.
On the actual day of the wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy celebrating with our guests verses worrying about certain wedding details, thanks to the staff at Atkinson. Kris Eiro was our Bridal Coordinator, who was absolutely fabulous!! She executed every detail perfectly! Kris wore many hats the day of the wedding…organizing the venders, ensuring that we stayed on schedule, made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy the day and simply being available whenever we needed her. We can not say enough about Atkinson Resort and Country Club and will have memories that last a lifetime. If you are considering your wedding or event to be held at Atkinson Resort & CC, you will not be disappointed.
My husband and I are beyond pleased with the service and accommodations of Atkinson Resort and Country Club. Our wedding was perfect and have no complaints. Jennifer and Julie made our day everything I could have ever imagined!
We had such a perfect day. The room looked beautiful and the staff was excellent. Everyone I dealt with was professional and returned my calls or emails promptly. The app's and dinner were great. Everyone said how wonderful the food was and he portions were HUGE! I could not have imagined the day being any better
The Atkinson Country Club was absolutely an amazing venue to have a wedding!! The staff were so wonderful and accommodating to work with. Their responsiveness and guidance was above and beyond my expectations. My wedding pictures in the gazebo are breathtaking as well!!
Thank you Atkinson Country Club for making our wedding day truly magical!!!

This place is very well-maintained, and their staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Also, the food was delicious, and very reasonably priced for what you get.
This was my third daughter getting married and it was the best! The staff at the Atkinson made it truly wonderful! Jennifer and Kris did an amazing job, Kris was there watching every detail, making sure my daughter and her husband had everything they needed, including telling my daughter to breathe and relax! Everything was fantastic, the food, the rooms, the staff! I can't say enough good things about them! One of my daughters has celiac disease and they took great care to make sure her meal was served separately from the buffet, so there was no worries about contamination. Fantastic venue!
Atkinson is an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. We had visited other places in the area that also had picturesque scenery outdoors but none could compare to Atkinson both inside and out. The staff (Nicolette & Jennifer) were very easy to work with, quick to reply with even the most trivial questions. Each meal course was tasty and delicious, with an attentive and courteous wait staff that even made themselves available for our wedding party during pictures over cocktail hour! Our day of coordinator did a nice job of making sure all went according to schedule with each of the vendors, guests, etc. The outside trellis area and room inside were setup beautifully with all our own decorations we wanted to incorporate, I didn't have anything to worry about the day of. I will say Atkinson does have specific things they are/aren't willing to accommodate so if you're someone with lots of unique ideas make sure you ask during you first meeting.
Overall our big day a huge success and couldn't have done it without the help from everyone at Atkinson. We have amazing pictures from around the resort to remember it by and guests still tell us how much they enjoyed it.
My husband and I got married at the Atkinson Resort & Country Club on 5/24/13. Our day was amazing thanks to Jennifer, Kris, and all of the ACC staff, who were an absolute pleasure to work with. Planning with them was a breeze, and everything ran smoothly the day of thanks to all of their professionalism, organization, hard work, and kindness. Kris, our day-of coordinator, was wonderful. She kept track of every single detail, both big and small, and made sure everthing was perfect so my husband and I could enjoy the day and not have to worry about a thing. Not to mention the fact that she hand-fed me appetizers and drinks! I think I probably gave her a few gray hairs because the weather was dicey and I wanted to have an outdoor ceremony, but she made it work because she knew how much it meant to me. This is an incredible venue, and I'd highly recommend it!
I can't say enough good things about my experience with the Atkinson Country Club for both my wedding ceremony and reception. Jennifer in Sales was amazing to work with. She answered every question that I had - from costing out the food and beverage several different ways, to helping us to pick our menu, and everything in between.
During the week of our wedding, our coordinator Kris was an absolute gem. She took charge in the best possible way - there wasn't a detail that we had to worry about on the day of the wedding. She kept order for us amongst all of the chaos, and everything flowed as smoothly as I could have imagined.
Because of the Atkinson Country Club's amazing staff, we had a picture-perfect wedding day and can't thank them enough for giving us the most wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
