Atkinson resort and country club is outstanding! My wedding took place in March and we had an outdoor ceremony in the trellis area! The weather was beautiful and being outdoors we got to capture the gorgeous scenery in our photos! The staff was wonderfull! I worked with Jennifer through my planning and she was wondrful! Julie was our day of coronatior and I couldn't have asked for better! She was so amazing and kept me calm all day! She did everything and anything I needed and most defiantly made for a great worry free night! All my guest were so impressed with the venu! And everybody loved the food!! Our ceremony was in the Tuscany ballroom, the ambience was beautiful! And everyone had such a wonderful time!!! I was so pleased with the overall experience with Atkinson! I would recommended it to any bride! We stayed in the suite room and our view of the fairways the next morning was beautiful! Some of our guest also booked rooms and stayed the night, the next morning we all met for breakfast in the tarven. The food was wonderful, and it was a perfect way to send us off to our honeymoon :) 10 out of 10 for Atkinson resort and country club!!
Can't say enough about the Atkinson Resort and Country Club! The staff, food, accommodations and amenities were priceless. Everyone was so focused on ensuring that my daughter's wedding was beautiful. Our bridal coordinator, Julie Ahern was awesome. Can't thank her enough as well as Jennifer, Christine, Carolyn, Bill, Wendie and everyone in guest services! A great venue - would highly recommend!
Top Notch, Beautiful & PerfectReviewed on 7/19/2014 Sarah G
Our wedding was April 25th 2014 & was just AMAZING do to all of the help from the staff at the Atkinson Resort & CC. From the sales department to the wedding coordinator before and the day of. We chose Filet & Haddock and there were nothing but compliments on how great the food was as well as the staff throughout the night. The setting is just beautiful - We were lucky to have a short time where the sun was shining and I was assured by my coordinator Kris it would be perfect and indeed it was. (Thank you to the help of Kris making sure every little detail I asked for was set up perfect) The Fieldstone suites were unbelievably comfortable and we booked 14 out of 16 rooms. The day of our wedding was PERFECT, stress free & we did not want the day to end. Thank you Jen in Sales - you made the details work and helped me any way you could.
Ceremony and Reception VenueReviewed on 1/09/2016
Atkinson Resort offered me a bridal suite all day which allowed the bridesmaids and I to eat the complimentary food, get our hair done, and prep for the big day. I was married at the trellis and our families still talk about how beautiful the outside ceremony was. Our wedding colors were green and pink and the green gold course in the background was gorgeous. I was originally nervous about how everything would run on the wedding day but the staff at Atkinson handled everything for us. While our guests were inside for cocktail hour, the staff served us the hors d'oeuvres and drinks while we took pictures. At the reception, our coordinator even ensured that the groom and I had time to eat! Overall, I would recommend this venue and service to everyone.
Exactly What We Wanted!!Reviewed on 1/06/2016 Katie R
Atkinson Country Club met every expectation that my husband and I had for our 350 person Greek wedding. They knew what they were doing every step of the way, from being very organized with whole wedding process to being willing to stretch a few rules to compensate for a few things we could not do. We are still getting compliments on how gorgeous everything was and how great the food was. From day one Jen was by our side guiding us in the right direction and always got back to us in a timely manor. She then handed is off to Julie,who again made us feel so special and made our wedding day go off so smooth. I would recommend this place 100% to anyone that asked it was the perect place for our perfect day!
Beyond What I Imagined!!Reviewed on 1/06/2016 Whitney K
I had the privilege of getting married at Atkinson Country Club this past November. I loved Jennifer from the start, but once I met my day-of wedding coordinator, Julie, I knew this team was the best. Jennifer and Julie went above and beyond our expectations every step of the way. They were as hands on as we wanted them to be, they were not pushy at all, and I have had almost all of our guests reach out to tell us what a great experience they had. My grandparents, who aren't easily won over, even said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! Do yourself a favor and at least go meet with Jennifer and her team, you won't regret it. They made what people said was going to be a stressful experience an absolute breeze!
We can't say enough great things about Atkinson Country Club! We had our wedding here on November 7th 2015. They were great from the start-Jennifer and Tina were there whenever we had questions! We never felt like we were bothering anyone. Tina helped make our wedding day go off without a problem and was always near by if I had a question. I highly recommend Atkinson Country Club!
Love Atkinson!!!!!!Reviewed on 11/13/2015 Sam M
Atkinson was great from beginning to end!They have a beautiful venue both inside and out! Their staff is so helpful with everything no matter what it is! We have got nothing but amazing reviews of the venue since our wedding. The food was absolutely better than any wedding I've been to. I highly recommend this venue!
Wonderful ExperienceReviewed on 10/05/2015 Kathryn R
I cannot say enough good things about my experience!! From the rooms to the service to the reception venue and the staff, the Atkinson truly knows weddings! Jennifer was our coordinator and helped us with all of the planning and Julie was our day-of (more like week-of) coordinator and these women were unbelievably professional and so helpful throughout. We did and open bar, which stepped up our price a bit.... Worth every penny!! They don't water down their liquor like some places.
Katie & Scott's WeddingReviewed on 10/03/2015 Katie D
Atkinson Resort & Country Club is a wonderful place to host a wedding - from top notch customer service to their beautiful venue - there is no way you can say no to this place! I would highly recommend this venue. Their staff is helpful - Jen and Julie were a true pleasure to work with throughout the entire planning process. If you book your wedding here - you won't be disappointed - I PROMISE!!
My husband and I had our wedding here in July. We were so happy we made this choice. Our ceremony was BEAUTIFUL on the gazebo side and held about 160 people. Atkinson was great from start to finish. Jennifer was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. On the day of our wedding Julie was our wedding planner. She made sure everything ran smoothly. The food was EXCELLENT...our guests are still raving about it! We had many guests from New York who are used to MULTIPLE course wedding meals...they, too, have told us how wonderful the food was! We chose the petite filet and stuffed shrimp & the chicken saltimbocca. I would highly recommend Atkinson Resort & Country Club to ANY bride looking for a beautiful venue with excellent service, responsiveness, and professionalism!
Wedding Planning Made EasyReviewed on 9/24/2015 Mai N
I had my wedding this past July at the Atkinson Resort and Country Club and I have nothing but good remarks about the venue. The view for the ceremony was gorgeous and our decorations were placed correctly and with care. Jennifer, the sales manager, answered all of our questions in a timely manner and handled our requests for updates and changes very efficiently. Our coordinator, Tina, was on her toes the day of the wedding making sure everything was orderly and that my husband and I were comfortable and stress-free.
Wedding VenueReviewed on 9/24/2015

I would highly suggest Atkinson for anybodys wedding! Stacey & Jon Brunelle
Amazing Experience!Reviewed on 9/24/2015
My husband, Scott, and I got married at the Atkinson Country Club on June 12, 2015. We had an amazing experience, all the way from the planning stages to the final dance. We originally booked the Granite Rose as our venue. We booked it in November, 2013, with our June 12, 2015 date. In December 2014 I received a letter in the mail explaining that the Granite Rose was closing as of February 2015. We panicked! This was something that only happened in movies. Half way through the day, I decided to call the Atkinson Country Club. All I knew was that I had my prom there and it was beautiful. Jennifer answered and put all my worries to rest. They had worked diligently throughout that entire week to specifically design a menu catered to Granite Rose guests! They tried to keep everything within our budget, and honored our vendor packages! They were so accommodating and understanding and I am so happy I decided to call that day! We were even able to keep our date! Julie was our coordinator and she was so helpful! I could not have asked for anything better! If you are looking for a wonderful experience, call Atkinson Country Club! - Lauren D
Amazing venue and caring staff!Reviewed on 8/20/2015 Alyssa C
My husband and I got married here on August 1, 2015. We booked late August of 2014 and since day one they were fabulous. Jennifer was so responsive to emails and made sure we had everything we needed. Our "Day of" coordinator, Julie was equally as great. She not only took care of us, the bride and groom, but everyone else at our wedding(with just under 200 guests that is not always easy). The day ran so smoothly and everything was beautiful and exactly what I imagined. We had the Legacy ballroom for our reception and it was perfect for our wedding size but could also fit many more. I highly recommend Atkinson to any bride and groom! The scenery around the grounds is also a huge plus for photographs :)
My husband and I got married at the Atkinson Country Club on 5/30/15 and are still hearing from our guests how much they loved the venue and the food! We had our ceremony outside under the Gazebo and then our cocktail hour and reception followed in the Brookside room. The ceremony location was breathtaking and the landscaping was perfect! I couldn't have imagined anything better! And I loved that there was a little balcony from the bridal suite overlooking the reception room to get a good view of everyone enjoying themselves. My husband and I made sure to go up and take a moment together to take it all in. (And it was fun to throw the bouquet from up there!!) From the very beginning the bridal coordinator, Jennifer was amazing! Answering all questions I had in a timely manner, no matter how silly or how many times I asked and forgot to write down! She is much easier to reach by email than by phone, but always responded quickly. There were a few small things that we wanted to change that the venue wouldn't allow, but then also some things that they were able to do that accommodated our needs. Our week of bridal coordinator, Julie was also great! I was able to reach her at all hours to make sure last minute things were all set. It was truly the best day of my wife and ARCC played a big part in that!
Dream wedding on a budgetReviewed on 1/28/2015 Jamie H
I cannot say enough good things about Atkinson Country Club! We had our dream wedding on a budget and couldn't have done it without them. Before I go further, I want to explain that we got a great deal because our wedding was on a Thursday. If you have your heart set on Saturday I would not consider this a budget venue, although I still think they are worth every penny. Because we chose Thursday our total was discounted and we had no food and beverage minimum. We also had full run of the place, extra time to use the changing rooms, choice of any ballroom/ceremony area, and a better backup ceremony location. The good: -The grounds are beautiful and were perfect for our outdoor ceremony and pictures -Jennifer Chipman and Katie Kivell were awesome to work with, even from across the country (we planned the whole thing from California) -The food is EXCELLENT and not just compared to other wedding food. Several guests said it was the best dinner they've had at a wedding -The ballrooms have beautiful high ceilings and tall windows that let in lots of light -They have all inclusive packages with apps, food, dessert, and open bar. It made everything so easy -They have rooms. Bride and Groom stay free the night of the wedding, and guests can book rooms if they don't want to drive home after. The was especially perfect for my side of the family that flew in from CA -The changing room is HUGE. Plenty of space for hair and makeup to set up, and the whole bridal party to be comfortable while getting ready -They will work with you if you want to change anything on the menu -Plenty of parking for all guests -We were lucky enough to have perfect weather, but had it rained our backup location would still have been beautiful since the ballrooms look out onto the property. -They are flexible with vendors. We have a JP and a DJ in the family and had no issues using them. The Bad (but also typical of almost all venues we looked at): -Patterned carpet in the ballrooms. At least the colors are neutral, which is better than many other places -Cash or check only, for every payment. Some venues accept credit cards for all but the final payment -Somewhat difficult to get to if you're not familiar with the area. -Cannot throw rice, confetti, birdseed, bubbles, flower petals, basically anything
Our WeddingReviewed on 1/09/2015 Marissa B
My husband and I were married at Atkinson Resort and Country Club on 12/6/2014. We knew we were looking for a place that was going to accommodate the things that were important to us: attractive setting, excellent food and spot on service. We have both been in the hospitality industry for years so we are sensitive to these aspects. Atkinson Resort & Country Club met and exceeded our expectations! We met with Jennifer at Atkinson back in April and from the get go she was attentive to our needs and very calming (considering how important this day would be for us and our families.) You could tell that Jennifer was experienced and genuinely cared about creating a wonderful day for her guests. We went back a few months later for our food tasting and could not have been more confident that we had chosen the correct place! The soup and pasta were fresh and hot! The chicken and beef were moist and full of flavor and the flatware/plates/glassware was modern and not at all “banquety.” The week of our wedding we met with Julie, she was going to be with us the entire day of our wedding to ensure everything went perfect. Well, our day came and to no surprise we had rain, but that didn’t dampen our spirits! After our ceremony we arrived at Atkinson and there was Julie, big smile and headset, ready to make our day memorable. First she escorted us down to our Bridal Suite where we, our bridal party and our parents had a little quite time to think about the day thus far and have some appetizers and cocktails before we met up with the rest of the reception. From there our photographer came to get us to head outside for pictures. The rain had come to a drizzle so it made for some excellent photographs!!!! After our photos our DJ came in to go over the entrance list and Julie was there to keep everything in order! When we entered our reception (which was held in the gorgeous Tuscan Ballroom) we were overcome with emotion! Our family and closest friends were there, the tables looked perfect and the room was decorated with just enough Christmas (my husband and I love the holidays) to make it elegant! As the evening moved on our food courses came one by one, hot and steaming and in a timely fashion. Our cake was perfect and stayed that way until we cut into it. Our cards, gifts, toasting glasses, cake knife, etc. were all kept in the condition we dropped them off in. Keep in mind this is what my husband and I experienced through the evening but when our families told us how wonderful everything was from food to service t attentiveness, it only solidified that we made the right choice. Having your wedding at Atkinson Resort & Country Club will not only provide you with great memories, photos and moments it will allow you to thoroughly enjoy your day because you can confidently know everything else is taken care of.
Awesome nightReviewed on 11/10/2014 Kerry L
We could not have picked a better place for our wedding. From the moment we saw Atkinson, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married! Jennifer Chipman was awesome! She made the whole wedding process a breeze! From our first meeting to up to our wedding day, we were able to email or call her with questions. No question was too small or silly for her. She answered all of our questions in a timely manner and helped us plan the best night of our life. The night of the wedding, Julia was our coordinator. We were so lucky to have her! We met with her the Tuesday before our wedding for our final appointment. She was awesome. She answered all our last minute questions and gave us such great ideas as to what else we could do on our wedding night. The night of the wedding Julia was just so awesome. She was there for every moment of it, helping us and being there for ideas and suggestions. She was so happy and just enjoyed her job so much it made us so happy to be there even more celebrating our wedding. We are so happy we choose Atkinson. Our guests have told us how much they enjoyed our wedding and our venue. They have told us this was the best wedding food that they have ever had, and that made us very happy because we wanted everyone to enjoy their food. Our guests have also told us how nice the staff was to all of them and we couldn't agree more. The staff working our wedding was great. Thank you so much Atkinson for all your help on our wedding night. We are so lucky to have been able to have had our wedding there and we will always look back at it and smile and be glad we made the best decision!
Perfect day and fantastic experience throughout the entire planning processReviewed on 11/10/2014 Kirsten P
We could not have asked for a better experience at Atkinson Resort and Country Club. The space itself is beautiful both indoors and out – the perfect combination of classy/impressive and comfortable/inviting. All the elegance you’d want without any stereotypical country club stuffiness :) The staff is fantastic too! The primary wedding contact is so sweet and pleasant to deal with, as well as extremely helpful, knowledgeable and well-organized throughout the entire planning process – you’ll feel like you’re in good hands with her, and you are! My day-of coordinator was awesome too, she made everything run smoothly without a hitch, was always right there whenever we needed her and was fun to have around during the “behind the scenes” parts of the reception. The rest of the staff – waiters, bartenders, etc. – were great too. You will definitely feel well taken care of on your big day, as you should :) I highly recommend Atkinson and am so glad we chose to have our reception there!
Wonderful Venue, Wonderful Price!Reviewed on 11/10/2014
This venue was the perfect location for our nuptials and has a wide variety of packages for every price range (strict budget to lavish!). The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the food is wonderful (we chose the standing buffet dinner, and our guests are still raving about it!), and the staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Julie was a wonderful bridal coordinator, and ensured that the evening events stayed on track. The only disappointment I had was that the wait staff decided to serve our wedding cake during the father/daughter dance, and our guests weren't able to enjoy both as much as they should have. If you are looking for a location in southern NH for your wedding, this is definitely a place to check out!
Everything we could imagineReviewed on 11/07/2014 Courtney R
After months of looking at venues in CT,MA, and NH we came across Atkinson Resort and Country Club in May. After a tour of the grounds, function rooms, hotel rooms, bridal suite, and what seemed like a thousand questions between myself, my fiancé, and our two mothers there was no doubt in our mind this was the venue for us. Jennifer Chipman was absolutely amazing from the moment we met her she was extremely knowledgable not only about Atkinson but the local vendors as well. We set our date for only 5 months away in October and she put our minds at ease that is would run smoothly, everything could be done, and it would look great. Leading up to the wedding it was great to see Atkinson offered a vendor package which included our cake, DJ, and flowers. This was extremely convenient. We were also happily surprised when we realized Atkinson offered a discount to Armed Forces members as am in the military and that they would allow us to have our dogs apart of the ceremony and pictures on site. The tasting leading up to the wedding was fantastic and gave us a good idea of what the food would be like at the wedding. We actually modified our buffet adding a amazing butternut bisque and the stuffed apple chicken both for a small reasonable fee. Tina our event coordinator was excellent. During our drop off we gave her very little direction and some decorations for the venue room. When we arrived the day of the wedding the bridal suite was fantastic to have as it was packed with multiple family members, two brides, two flower girl, two sets of grandparents and many more. As we looked out the balcony to see the Fairview room it was transformed into the fall rustic wedding we had in out heads, it was beautiful. The weather was great as we had a 4:30 ceremony at the trellis it could not have gone smoother. Although we were taking pictures during cocktail hour we got many compliments on the food and drinks. The little time we had left before being introduced we went to bridal suite enjoyed a cocktail and some of the platters which were great. The rest of the night was absolutely amazing the food was the best I have had at any wedding. We decided to do a buffet as me and my wife have been to many weddings where it is plated and if you don't like it you are out of luck. We had so much food it was insane, two salads, butternut bisque soup was my favorite, a pasta bar with garlic bread, fish, apple stuffed chicken, prime rib, and then our cake and a chocolate fountain. The DJ we got through our vendor package was amazing, the dance floor was never empty. We had such a good time people from the wedding next to us wanted to come to ours. After the reception half the wedding continued to the tavern where they gladly accommodated about 40 plus people. After returning to our complimentary room there was a bottle of champagne and two pieces of our cake. The following morning about 25 of us had breakfast at their tavern and with the coupons we received from staying our bill was near nothing. I can't say one bad thing about Atkinson Country Club I wish i could relive the day again and again. I hope someone I know has a function there so I can enjoy the place over again. One recommendation to anyone interested in having their function here is to add the extra hour the time flies by and you want to enjoy it all as much as possible. Thank you Jennifer, Tina and all who made our day amazing! Courtney and Savanna
Wedding VenueReviewed on 11/06/2014 Caitlin F
I have nothing but great things to say about the staff at Atkinson Country Club. From the beginning they were nothing but helpful, attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. From our first appointment with Jennifer we got nothing but good vibes. They made the month by month process so easy with reminding you of deadlines and upcoming appointments. When the day finally arrived it ran so smoothly. The staff was amazing and they even reheated my dinner because I wasn't able to get back in time to eat it before it got cold. I didn't even have to ask. Tina was my bridal coordinator for the day of my wedding and she was also amazing. She made sure every step and event in my wedding ran smoothly. I did not have to stress and stop enjoying my day for one second. They had everything under control. It was such a comforting feeling. I highly recommend the Atkinson Country Club to any couple. I do not have a single complaint and my guests are still complimenting my wedding a month after it happened.
My dream wedding come true!Reviewed on 11/06/2014 Shayla C
When looking for venues for my fall wedding I found many beautiful spots. When my husband suggested Atkinson I figured he was hoping to fit in 9 holes of golf while I checked the place out. Turns out, he has a great eye for wedding venues! From the moment we met Jennifer, the wedding sales manager, I began really picturing my wedding day. While the inside of the resort is beautiful it holds no flame to the ridiculous foliage that surrounds the club. We chose the gazebo area to get married at and our guests are still raving about the view. We also continually get comments about how great the food and the service was. Our day-of coordinator, Julie, was always available and kept us on time and calm throughout the day. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing! We had the perfect wedding that we had always hoped for and Atkinson was the perfect venue for a beautiful fall wedding!
Perfect Day!!!!!Reviewed on 11/02/2014
The Atkinson Country Club is the most beautiful wedding venue I could have asked for. The high ceilings in the reception and the gorgeous grounds for the ceremony made for a wonderful experience! The staff was incredibly easy to work with, and helped to put my mind at ease. Our photographs are absolutely breathtaking and it is in large part to the venue! Very reasonably priced and could not have asked for a more perfect location to get married. Also, the guests are still talking about the amazing food!!! Not your typical "wedding" food.

I have spent eleven of my nineteen years in the wedding industry here at Atkinson Resort & Country Club. Working one on one with our clients during the planning process allows me the opportunity to get to know couples personally and truly understand what they envision their wedding day to be. It is always my goal to provide attentive and personal service to all of our couples. Photo credit: Photography by Linda
