A true fairytale. We had the honor of working with Melissa while planning our wedding and truthfully I could not have asked for anyone better! She was always there for me when I had a silly question and she was always so kind and prompt with her replies. I must have asked her... Read More the same questions 10 times, but she never seemed to get frustrated. We thought she was awesome with just the planning and she somehow outdid herself more on the day of! She not only took on staying in touch with us all day long but she always was managing tours for other couples that day as well. That day went off without a problem. No bridezilla moments, there was nothing that was forgotten and everything went by so smooth. Even when I try to think real hard about something that went wrong, I cannot think of one thing! Whenever we needed something the venue was always right there as well. Housekeeping was so sweet and the welcome desk was so awesome. It was freezing that day, maybe a high of -5 and they helped shuttle us from the carriage house to the barn. All of the rooms in the venue were a comfortable temperature where you forgot it was in the middle of winter. The employees are all so sweet! They remembered people from the night before and brought up conversations they had previously and the bartenders remembered everyone's drinks! Which is impressive when you have 75 people! It has been weeks since the wedding but all of our guests still go on about how amazing the venue was and how top notch the staff is. Some have already booked a vacation with the venue again because they cannot wait to go back. If I could do it all over again I would. It was worth all the stress while planning (from family not venue), it was worth the 3 hour drive, it was worth it in the cold. If you want a dream come true and a flawless wedding, this truly is the place to be. You will not be disappointed

All of our guests raved about the dinner the night of our wedding, the lobster and shrimp pasta was amazing and the beef tenderloin was melt in your mouth delicious! The flowers and cake included in the package were perfect, my bridal bouquet was gorgeous and the cake was simple and yummy. Our room in the carriage house was a slice of heaven, all of our guests stayed at different spots in the Inn and they all loved the experience, from the rooms in the main inn to the salt box to one of the cottages. My daughters loved it there, the indoor pool was awesome! The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. The breakfast included in our stay was delicious, eggs benedict and belgian waffles, our guests were blown away! The day of our elopement everything was completely perfect, the Inn handled every detail with grace and love. They even had a beautiful note for us in the Main Inn on the chalkboard which is just one example of how sweet they were and how special the day was. Melissa was absolutely incredible to work with. She handled my overload of emails over the months with friendly support, there was never a moment where I questioned our decision to choose the Christmas Farm Inn & Spa. The Spa itself was lovely and I felt like a queen on the day of my elopement. I wish we could go back and do it all over again! It was perfection!! We also went with a suggested photographer on the Christmas Farm Inn & Spa website, Anne Skidmore, who is an absolute gifted artist and the area around the Inn and the Inn itself was the PERFECT backdrop for gorgeous NH photos!

Melissa was there with me during setup and rehearsal on Friday, and then the whole day of the wedding on Saturday she was behind the scenes making sure everything went smoothly, sometimes in ways that I only found out from my guests after the wedding!

The layout of the property allowed for us to have our ceremony in the Carriage House which has a magnificent field stone fireplace, french doors and huge atrium windows with a wonderful view of the white mountains in the background. The reception was in a centuries old restored barn which also had a field stone fireplace and was perfect for the amount of guests we planned. Sandra was so accommodating and worked with us every step of the way. There was a glitch with guests making reservations in the beginning, but was quickly rectified and the majority of our guests were able to stay at the Inn for the wedding. The wedding was a destination wedding for us and our out of town guests and Sandra and Gary made everyone's weekend stay a memorable one! Sandra accommodated us with an informal rehearsal pizza party the evening prior to the wedding and everyone enjoyed the quaint pub on the property. The Carriage House was perfect for the ceremony but also houses 12 spa style suites that included fireplaces, balconies and jacuzzi tubs for two. In addition, the Carriage House also has a full spa which accommodated myself and my Maid of Honor with manicures and pedicures as well as having our hair and makeup done for the wedding day. Guests also took advantage of the spa services during their stay. The Christmas Farm Inn and Spa was the perfect venue for our destination wedding, without us or our guests having to travel too far to experience a truly wonderful and magical getaway. The food the entire weekend was exceptional as well as the service. Sandra and her staff went out of their way to insure that everyone was happy. Our wedding was perfect and was exactly the way we wanted our weekend to be.

I had a January wedding at the Christmas Farm Inn, and it could not have been more stress-free. First, my DH and I live in Oklahoma, so this was a destination wedding for us and our guests and we had just under a year to plan. We had the rehearsal dinner, wedding (including hair... Read More and makeup), and post wedding brunch at the Inn. It was a very small wedding, less than 30 guests, but the way everything was set up made it feel like the room was full. All of our vendors came from the recommendation list from the Inn, and each one was worth recommending. Any issues that we came across were handled both quickly and gracefully; I felt that I did not have anything to worry about in the planning process. Here is the thank-you letter that we wrote to the Inn after the wedding: "Sandra, Gary and the Christmas Farm Inn Staff, Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding. Everybody was a great help, from the very beginning when I was searching for a venue to the very end. At first, I was afraid that there would he some catch that I did not know about to having an affordable wedding at such a beautiful place. When Daniel and I came up to the Inn last July, we were astonished at the beauty, professionalism, friendliness, and, of course, the food! After that visit, all concerns that we had were gone. That was the best vacation that we have taken in 5 years! When we arrived in January for our wedding, nothing had changed and I wouldn't have had it any other way. All of my guests had a wonderful time! Did 1 mention how wonderful the food was? And how friendly the staff was? It was a long trip for everybody to spend the weekend there, and nobody regrets it. I cannot express how much of a weight this took shoulders, from stress of asking family to drive in and fly across the country (and an ocean for some!)for my wedding. Also, speaking of stress, the spa was amazing. The masseuse noticed my tension, and, well, her hands are magic and she was very friendly. I am very uncomfortable around people I am not familiar with, but the staff made me dismiss that. Everybody else at the spa was equally amazing. I know that it was a tense day, but it was pulled off beautifully. They really made sure to go the extra mile. And on a more ‘bridal’ note, they made me feel beautiful. l will undoubtedly be visiting the Spa next time we visit the Inn. Sandra, thank you for helping me plan so many details, and thank you for the help on the wedding day. We have many photos of you helping the wedding party! I did not realize it until I saw the photos, and I am grateful. We will be seeing you again!"


Great Getaway for Us and Our Guests

We had our 65 person wedding at the Christmas Farm Inn in May. Our ceremony was in their beautiful Carriage House with a big stone fireplace and double french doors serving as our background. The reception was in their Barn. Although a small venue, it provided a great intimate... Read More and vintage reception. The food was GREAT. We are still receiving compliments on it. Many of our guests stayed on property for a reduced rate and they all loved it. The property also has space for larger weddings under a tent in their field with mountain views. Sandra and Gary were great to deal with. The Inn is located close to the Jackson Falls and the Jackson Covered Bridge which both provided great photo ops for the wedding party!!
