We picked Three Chimneys Inn because it has everything you need for a wedding. It includes the catering (the reception dinner was delicious), the alcohol, beautiful guest rooms, scenic landscape, and true hospitality. Wedding can be very expensive, but Three Chimneys gives you the best quality and service at a manageable price. They don't skimp on anything and they don't try to throw hidden charges. At the end of the night, the bill was where I expected it to be. Also, Pauline, the sale director is such a sweet and kind person to work with. When I needed advice with things along the way, she was always honest and tried her best to help in any way she could. The inn gets a lot of weddings and Pauline gets very busy, so it may take a couple of days for her to get back to an email, but she always does get back to you whether by email or phone call. We will definitely return to stay overnight and dine there again for future occasions!

We have a breakfast here the morning following our wedding. The food was delicious and the room was just perfect. A great way to say good bye to those who came to celebrate with yoU!

My now husband and I fell in love with the quaintness and history of Three Chimneys Inn. We had a reception venue lined up, but still needed a ceremony spot, since we opted not to be in a church.
Three Chimneys was the perfect location- we held our rehearsal dinner there the night before as well. The food was incredible and everyone was so easy to work with. Pauline, the wedding coordinator was fabulous- so organized and helpful in our planning.
The bridge was a beautiful spot for photos as well.

I highly recommend this venue! My husband and I got married here and it was more than we could have asked for! The staff is amazing and always willing to help out with whatever you may need. We had 100 guests at our wedding and it was the perfect number. There was plenty of room for everyone at the reception as well as at the ceremony. The ceremony was held in their garden and was gorgeous! They fixed everything so nicely. We got so many compliments on how nice everything looked. I just cannot stop commenting on how beautiful everything was, we could not have asked for a better day! It was more than we ever dreamed of! Thank you three chimneys!

We were very pleased with our experience with Three Chimneys. We held our October wedding there and found the service to be excellent. We took over the entire inn for the weekend and our guests all raved about the beautiful rooms. The innkeeper and event staff were very friendly and accommodating, and they did a great job answering my hundreds of questions and trying to meet our special requests. My guests were all impressed by the cozy historical decor; the website doesn't even do it justice. Go see it in person! It was the perfect setting for a fall wedding.
We rented all three rooms on the lower level for our 140 person event; it was cozy, but the space suited us perfectly and there was plenty of room for dancing. The food was delicious and we received several compliments on it. I have been to a lot of weddings, and although I may be biased, I think our food was definitely in the top tier!
Because TCI is a small inn rather than a large hotel or other facility that operates like a big wedding factory, I had to be a little extra organized on my end throughout the planning process, but it was worth it in order to enjoy such a gorgeous, unique setting with so many personal touches. To the staff's great credit, on the actual day of my event everything went off flawlessly.
Overall I found this to be a great value compared to other similar venues, and I would definitely choose them again in a heartbeat!
Just a tip if you are planning a wedding there...make sure to check with nearby UNH about major events scheduled for your potential wedding weekend. We blocked off rooms at the Holiday Inn (walking distance to TCI) for our additional guests and it worked very well. However, rooms in Durham go quickly on big UNH weekends so plan well in advance and be aware of traffic.

The staff was wonderful, easy to work with and very accomodating. The setting is so naturally classic, you won't need any extra decor!

Every interaction we had with the TCI was wonderful. Pauline, the TCI's event coordinator, was always ready to answer every question. The food was excellent, the function rooms and gardens were gorgeous, and there were lots of options for customization. The guest rooms too were beautifully decorated. We couldn't have asked for a better venue! We also had great success with the vendors we chose from the TCI's preferred vendor list.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Three Chimneys Inn, and we are so happy with this choice. The staff at Three Chimneys are absolutely wonderful and accommodating. We experienced a few minor glitches on our wedding day and the staff took care of everything for us. We were able to meet with the staff (esp. Pauline) many times prior to our wedding day and this was so helpful with our planning. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and everything was in full bloom for our outdoor ceremony in June. The reception room is also beautiful, it is on the smaller size but cozy and perfect for a wedding under 100 people. It was also a great location because our guests (and we) could stay overnight onsite in their beautiful guest rooms! We cannot say enough great things about what a positive experience we had with Three Chimneys Inn. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to have their wedding reception here. Three Chimneys also provides their own catering and the food was so delicious! We received soo many compliments on the food that Three Chimneys provided.
