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!

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 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 :)

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.

My fiance and I got engaged in late 2009, and after doing some initial research we decided to make our first on-site visit to Atkinson Resort & Country Club. It only took the one meeting before we were hooked.
At first glance: the grounds are absolutely beautiful, even when the sun is not shining. The Sales Office staff (Nicolette when we first visited, Jennifer by the end of the planning process) are amazing and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. The event rooms are spacious and have great views (we fit 18 tables/200 people into one room and it never felt crowded).
As we got more involved in the planning process, our questions to ACC staff were many, and sometimes a little silly, but every time we got immediate responses. Working with Jennifer made the planning much less anxiety-ridden and therefore easier.
On our wedding day, as impressed as we already were, ACC staff completely blew us away. The food was amazing (and our guests continue to rave about it), Kris and the wedding/event staff were SO attentive and made sure everything went absolutely smoothly from start to finish.
We had a day-after brunch which was just as awesome.
I cannot say one bad thing about ACC, and even five days later, almost all of our 200 guests continue to tell me how amazing they thought ACC was from a guest perspective.
Best decision we made was booking at ACC!

I recently got married in August and had the most wonderful experience at Atkinson Country Club! Most brides have that special moment when they find their dress but for me I had that feeling when I found my venue at ACC. It had everything I wanted beautiful landscaping with outdoor ceremony, big ballroom excellent food choices. Jen and Julie made sure everything was perfect for the wedding down to the last detail. They also were my husband and mine biggest advocates! Everything was perfect, fun, beautiful and delicious and if I had to do it over again I certainly go back to ACC!

The Atkinson Country Club is a breath-taking venue! Beautiful scenery for pictures! Also, the food is so delicious -- I had many, many guests tell me how great their meals were! And, it was such a pleasure to work with Jennifer and Anne -- they were both so helpful and I want to thank them both so much for everything!! The Atkinson Country Club staff and scenery were two huge reasons I was able to have the wedding of my dreams!!

My husband and I celebrated our reception at Atkinson Country Club following our 7/6/13 wedding ceremony. Jennifer Chipman was the first person we met during our initial wedding meeting at the country club. We could not have asked for a more personable, knowledgeable, amazing person to help us make what was feeling like the biggest decision of our lives! Jenn went through every detail of all our options with regards to what the country club had to offer. We were so excited, we booked a date only 7 months out! Jennifer was there every step of the way over the next months. Promptly responded to every email & phonecall I naggingly left. She sent me friendly reminders leading up to all major & minor deadlines. Jenn was there to help me with anything from choosing my vendors to the planning of small details (seating and hor d'oeuvres). Her follow up time made planning easy & enjoyable, because I wasn't waiting around for days to hear back from her on a small detail or what her thoughts were on some idea I had. She was accommodating to every request & made herself available to meet if I was feeling overwhelmed or needed help making some decisions. Never, during the entire 7 month process, did I feel pressure to upgrade to a more expensive option or make a decision on something that wasn't relevant to what I wanted to do. I was going to be 8 months pregnant on the day of my wedding; I didn't think twice about this conflict most of the time because of Jennifer's reassurance we could make it happen as if this was just another minor detail. During the last few weeks leading up to the wedding, we were introduced to our wedding coordinator-Kris Eiro. With such big shoes to fill, Kris was a saint sent from heaven. She was there for every last minute detail, met with me for my drop appointment, went over every item & prepared me 100% for the reception; but was never at any point in time overwhelming. The day of the wedding, she flawlessly worked with each of my vendors to ensure every single minute of my reception went without an issue. From the layout of my décor in the ballroom to my overnight guests receiving their welcome bags. Having a death in the family just days before the wedding, Kris was there for me, so accommodating, helping me reorganize my now shifted seating chart. With 150 guests and a pregnant bride, Kris was present, attentive and there for me from the second I got out of the limo until the last guest finally left the dance floor. My wedding day was absolutely perfect (under some pretty stressful conditions) because of the months of time and energy Jennifer put into helping me plan, and the nonstop attention and work Kris put in for us during that last month, not to mention the day of. She was the unsung hero. I don't want to leave out how the staff were some of the friendliest people I have ever met, our food was absolute perfection and the room was more beautiful the day of than I ever would have hoped for. You can find amazing food anywhere; but the team at Atkinson Country Club is what made my wedding day so perfect. We also had our rehearsal dinner and Sunday morning brunch all at the club. I wouldn't have changed a thing about my entire wedding weekend.
I, without reservation, recommend ACC for ANY function. You will not be disappointed with the professionalism of the coordinators and management, efforts of the staff, attention to detail and genuine desire to make your wedding day as perfect as possible.

I worked in the wedding industry for a wedding vendor so I went all of New Hampshire to different facilities. So when I got engaged and heard Atkinson was available for our date I had to book it. They made my day so relaxed and the whole resort was accommodating to all of us. My bus shuttling guests from the hotel to the facilities skipped our ceremony venue and dropped them off almost 2 hours early to the reception. There were quite a few guests so the restaurant accommodated all of them and were not overwhelmed at all. Our guests raved about the food and even though it was foggy, we got amazing, AMAZING photos with Tom Gibbons at night. The surroundings are perfect for any weather. The only downside was that we had to find a place for our ceremony since they don't have onsite ceremonies on Saturday nights but there are amazing places nearby that are beautiful and are not too expensive.

We could not be more happy with choosing to have our wedding at Atkinson! Everyone was so friendly and easy to work with. The food was amazing and of course the setting and function rooms are beautiful. They made sure everything ran smoothly and were right there making sure my husband and I had what we needed and were happy! I would recommend this venue for anyone planning a wedding!
