Book Your Wedding with Atkinson Resort & Country Club


A BALLROOM IN ATKINSON, NH

About Us

Set amidst the quiet woodlands of Atkinson, New Hampshire, the Atkinson Resort & Country Club offers manicured gardens, rolling lawns and picturesque scenery at every turn. Boasting tranquil ponds, majestic trees and bubbling waterfalls, the property features far more than just lush fairways and greens. With separate sites for ceremonies and receptions available at this scenic venue, couples have a variety of options for tailoring an event to meet their wishes. There’s also accommodations for rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and anniversary parties.

The Trellis. An outdoor ceremony site, the Trellis is surrounded by mature trees, sculpted gardens, a quiet pond and the manicured golf course. Featuring a wood-beamed trellis within a circular, red-bricked cobblestone plaza, guests watch the ceremony while seated in white lawn chairs.

The Gazebo. Tiered gardens and cascading waterfalls stand as the backdrop to this intimate site. Here at this intimate wedding ceremony location, couples say "I do" upon a small cobblestone dais, encircled by flowers, hedges and stately trees.

The Legacy Ballroom. The largest ballroom offered at the country club, this space features floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the landscaped grounds. Couples who choose this ballroom may also choose between having their ceremony either at the Trellis or the Gazebo. The newly-married couple enters the ballroom by descending down an ornate staircase to greet their guests.

The Brookside Stateroom. After completing a ceremony at the Gazebo, couples can celebrate their union with a reception in this majestic space featuring a grand staircase entrance and a private deck guests will enjoy throughout the cocktail hour and reception.

Farview Stateroom. This elegant space looks out over the course and the woodlands beyond. Couples who wed at the Trellis may celebrate in this room once their ceremony is complete. A private patio will be enjoyed by all as the evening moves on and the couple will toast to guests from their private Bridal salon balcony.

Tuscany Ballroom. Another reception option for couples tying the knot at the Trellis, this elegant room has a wall of windows that offers panoramic views of an outdoor patio, which guests have access to during the event. Additionally, the room’s lobby is also available to guests celebrating here, giving them another place to settle down for a little post-ceremony relaxation.

Signature Room. This intimate space is a choice spot for smaller weddings or for events such as a rehearsal dinner, brunch or bridal shower. The focal points of this comfortable room are the fieldstone fireplace and its large windows.

Jennifer and Julie are amazing and talented wedding coordinators! They both are experienced and have excellent customer service skills. I was able to express all questions and concerns to Jennifer leading up to the big day and worked with Julie on the day of the wedding. Julie... Read More made me feel comfortable and helped make the day flawless. The grounds are impeccable with beautiful landscape that are very well maintained. I was so happy to marry my amazing husband at the Trellis and I know his mom was with us in spirit with the sun shining and no rain insight. :) We enjoyed our wedding because of the amazing wedding staff. I will recommend large wedding parties to stay just minutes away at the Holiday inn. I feel they are well suited for large parties. The Atkinson allows shuttles and transportation to and from for guests staying at hotels near by. This was very helpful! Thank you again to Jennifer and Julie!!

Having the guest rooms in the same building as the reception and having the bridal suite all day (for a Friday wedding) makes things really convenient.

We would HIGHLY recommend Atkinson CC as your wedding venue and if we could do it all over again we wouldn't change a thing!

We have had the most amazing experience at Atkinson! It was the first and ONLY place we looked at! We first toured with Jennifer and she explained every aspect of the wedding. She answered any and all questions we came with and was super personable and sweet. We loved the venue... Read More right away, bith the indoor and the outdoors spaces are gorgeous! We decided to book it at the end of the tour. Jennifer was in contact with us before every major deadline, everything wad explained super clearly and planning was made easy. I probably emailed Jennifer 1,000 times! They are unbelievably organized and all the paperwork was clearly labeled and very helpful. Throughout the year between booking and our wedding, we came to Atkinson several times to check if our centerpieces would look good and show loved ones the venue we fell in love with. Each time, whether We met with Jennifer or not, the staff was very accommodating and kind. We had our drop appointment the week of the wedding and it was a relief to be able to drop off everything (all decorations, guest book, place cards, etc.) and to only worry about ourselves the day of the wedding. Our day-of coordinator was Kristen and she was AMAZING! She somehow gathered our crazy large family and everything ran perfectly smoothly. She even held my drink while we took post-ceremony pictures! Overall Atkinson Resort and Country Club is amazing- it is the most beautiful venue for any wedding and their staff made everything easy!!!

If you are looking for more than just a space to have a wedding and want to feel a connection with the staff you work with, Atkinson is your place! Atkinson took my breath away the first time I visited and the staff didn't do anything less when I met them! Jennifer is so... Read More friendly, but what really stood out for my dad and I was how open and honest she was. She doesn't lie to try and get you to book at her venue. She tells it like it is and makes sure that your needs are met and that you are comfortable and happy with what you are getting. She allowed some special food requests for my guests and made me feel very welcomed to ask her questions whenever I wanted. She even replied one night late at night just to reassure me with what was going on! I quickly felt like she was more of a friend than just a staff member I was working with. When it came around to my wedding weekend, the staff for my rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and wedding were all amazing! They made sure everyone was set to go and happy and really took the time to get to know me and the wedding party. Kristen kept everything in order and made sure the timeline of events stuck to schedule, which was a big help and stress relief knowing someone else was keeping track of where everyone was haha. I have nothing negative to say about Atkinson or my experience with planning my wedding there. --Diane Wittman

If something went wrong ( I must have messed up some table arrangements when making cards) Kristen took care of it and I didn't even know until a week later when a friend told me so I wouldn't stress. She made the day PERFECT, stress free and smooth sailing. (Kristen too is great at getting back emails, communication is KEY in planning). Both Jennifer and Kristen are just so sweet and accommodating, thank you so much! Our reception was in the Brookside room, it's a great size with some great views! We even had a deck where our guests could go outside during the reception. I could go on and on about how great the Atkinson Country Club is. They made our wedding day everything we wanted and more!

The entire day ran so smoothly and we owed it all to them. Thank you Jennifer and... Read More Kristen for helping make our day so special! Our reception was in the legacy ballroom- there was plenty of space for stations, tables and dancing. We received countless compliments from our wedding guests on the food and venue, specifically how delicious the station meals were (many saying it was the best wedding food they've ever had!). We have also been told by many guests that it was one of the most beautiful outdoor ceremonies they had been to- the grounds at Atkinson are so well kept and make for beautiful pictures.

I was married at Atkinson CC on 9/15/17 and it was the most amazing day of our lives. Jennifer and Julie were nothing short of spectacular. From the 1st time we went to Atkinson we were immediately sold on its exterior beauty then our meeting with Jennifer sealed the deal. She... Read More was so kind and sweet, organized, and has so much passion about wedding planning. We knew we could trust her. This was the 1st and only venue we looked at and we have no regrets! During planning all the way to the end of our wedding, every one from Jennifer and Julie, to the front desk staff, the pro shop, the tavern, and even all of the staff setting up and working our wedding - each and every one of them made us feel welcome, excited and stress free. Even a down pour right before our first look couldn't ruin our day! Jennifer rushed to get us umbrellas, Julie and her team set up a beautiful twinkle-lit back drop for our last minute indoor ceremony. Then they all worked together with our vendors to rearrange our game plan so we could get beautiful photos outdoors when the rain cleared after our ceremony. All of the brides who I know told me about little things that were stressful on their wedding day. I can actually say that my wedding day was the most calm and least stressful day of my life. I didn't worry once. And I attribute that to the excitement to marry my best friend, awesome friends and family, a great venue and amazing vendors. We truly hit the jackpot. We stepped in to the photo booth and the end of the evening to get some photos and my husband looked at me and said "this truly has been the best day of my life" - he took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you so much to Atkinson CC, from the bottom of our hearts, you were a HUGE part of making 9/15/17 the best day of our lives! We would do it all again in a heartbeat.

I posted the same on their FB page, but I figured I'd post here and wedding wire because that's where most brides look: Jennifer was PHENOMINAL with helping us plan our wedding! We got a great deal and she gave us her best recommendations for options. Very open and honest;... Read More certainly not out just for money--she wanted to make sure we were happy and put our money in the right places. Julie (our wedding day coordinator) was great also. She was great explaining everyone's role during the rehearsal and the day of. She directed the photographer to AMAZING photo opportunities; she and the staff made sure my husband and I had everything we needed for our whole event. The only negative I have to say is when we paid for a light breakfast for the girls in the bridal suite while we got ready, and I was expecting more than 8 pastries (on the smaller side) and more than 1 tray of assorted fruit for 8 girls. But gave us plenty of OJ, coffee, and tea. We had our rehearsal dinner the night prior in the Wine Room, Carroll (our waitress) was wonderful! My husband and I have eaten there. A handful of times and I have yet to have a bad meal or bad service from any part of Atkinson. We had the stations buffet for our wedding and everything was DELICIOUS, definitely recommend the stations buffet..gave our guests a variety of foods to choose from.

I got married here in June of 2017. I spoke with Jennifer Chipman leading up to the wedding day and met my coordinator the week before the wedding. Jennifer was very accessible via email and answered all my questions. We chose the stationed package-the food was amazing and... Read More everyone was raving about how good the food was. It was a bit concerning how many little mistakes were made prior to the wedding day. For example, she got my husband's name wrong multiple times sending me the initial contract, typed the wrong hor'deurves on our menu order, sent us another wedding's final bill and then miscalculated our final bill leaving out 3k after I had already paid. Everything on our wedding day ran smoothly, but I was nervous something would go wrong with all the small mistakes. Julie was our day of coordinator and she helped keep the night running smoothly. Be sure to be clear about what you really want as she tried to change up how the bridal party walked out based on how she's seen other weddings do it. We went with the vendor package and all the vendors were great! We had Susanne's weddings for flowers and she did a fantastic job! Her communication via email is unclear and vague so be sure to bring all your questions when you meet with her in person. Jacques Pastries created our cake-no complaints there! We used Main Event for our DJ and had Kelly Elliot as our DJ. I would not recommend her as she did not seem to know a ton of popular music choices and pressed her own agenda on us. We felt as though the music selection for dinner was not what we anticipated and she played older music.
