The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Couples seeking a New England wedding venue that exudes charm and warmth may find just what they're looking for at the Ragged Mountain Resort in Danbury, New Hampshire. Mountain views, towering pine trees and a historic hotel that has been welcoming guests for more than 200 years set the scene for a romantic and cozy wedding. Couples can capture a photo of themselves on one of the resort's ski lifts, with a 'Just Married' banner strung across the back or pose alongside a meandering rock wall. The photography possibilities are nearly endless.
The Ragged Mountain Resort's New Hampshire setting allows for scenic weddings all season long. Picture a fall ceremony with autumn's ever changing red orange and yellow leaves in the background or a winter wedding with snow-capped mountain views. Spring and summer wedding receptions can be held in an outdoor tent, set upon one of the resort's manicured lawns.
Ceremonies can be held in many different locations on the property, from the edge of the golf course to a mountain summit. At the summit, couples are wed under a rustic wooden arbor which can be decorated with elegant white drapery and seasonal flowers.
Receptions for up to 250 guests can be held in the resort's rustic ski lodge. The lodge, which features oversized windows offering breathtaking views, wooden walls and beams as well as soaring ceilings, has all the charm of a cozy mountain retreat. A central dance floor allows guests to dance the night away while still taking in views from one of the multi-story crosshatch windows. Wooden lights wrapped with twinkling lights give the space a soft glow.
What You Should Know

Our daughter was married on June 18th at the meadows. It was more beautiful then I could have ever imagined. The ceremony site was beautiful and Emma was so well organized. The reception at the barn was just as beautiful. We had 140 guests and the barn was very spacious for dinner and dancing. The food was fresh and delicious and dinner was served timely. It was a pleasure dealing with Emma and chef Justin; they went over and above to make our daughter's day special. I just cannot say enough! There is not one thing I can come up with that could have/should have been different. We also rented the Inn for the bridal party and family; it was a perfect place to gather and while the girls were all getting prepared before the wedding, the guys hung out on the grounds and played yard games. The inn keeper, Patrick was so accommodating to our wishes/needs. The breakfast he prepared was delicious and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. Again, I could go on and on about how wonderful it all was! We are so glad we used Ragged Mountain for our daughter's special day!
We could not be any happier with how our wedding turned out at Ragged Mountain! We had our ceremony outside at The Meadows, and the scenery was gorgeous! Our reception was inside the RedBarn, and the staff did an AMAZING job from setting up the day before, to making our guests feel so welcomed and comfortable. The food was awesome (thanks Justin!!) and the bar staff were so fun! We got so many compliments from our friends and family about how beautiful the venue was! Emma, the wedding coordinator, was AMAZING. She remembered every little request I had and made the the whole process and day so smoothly. She is the main reason the wedding was incredible! The price is very reasonable, and the lodging for the guests at the cardigan cabins and inn are great options for the bridal party and guests. I would definitely recommend this venue and service!
THANK YOU RAGGED MOUNTAIN!! We have heard nothing but great things from all of our guests! Our weekend could literally have not gone any better! You guys were incredibly friendly, over the top with kindness, resourceful, and fun! I would recommend you guys to anyone, you guys were the best from set up to break down, Emma was awesome and Justin's food was incredible!
We had the best time. Even though it rained and we had to have the ceremony inside, it was just as beautiful. We wouldn't change our venue for anything. Thank you Sam for everything you did!
I highly recommend Ragged Mountain! We booked a few years ago before they started renovations and we could not be happier with the way everything turned out. We started planning with Emma who was awesome but she accepted a new job and we got a new coordinator, Samantha, just a few weeks before the wedding. Samantha is absolutely amazing! She stepped right up and made our day perfect. The ceremony site is gorgeous, the lodge was beautiful all decorated, and the food was delicious. All of our guests had a great time and most said it was the best wedding they have been to!
We got married at Ragged Mountain on July 16, and it could not have been any more perfect! The scenery of the meadows ceremony site was breathtaking, and the whole property offers many great places for photos. Emma was an amazing coordinator, and answered my many questions before hand and made sure everything went smoothly the day of so I didn't have to worry about a thing! We had our reception in the red barn, and the staff had everything already set up for us on Friday so we could come to decorate. Ragged was very accommodating to all our requests. There is a great patio and lawn for the cocktail hour, and the staff brought my husband and me a plate of hors d'oeuvres to enjoy alone before we made our grand entrance to the reception. We got so many rave reviews about the food, especially the deviled eggs and sirloin steak. The bartender and drinks were delicious. The patio area also has a fire pit that we used later on in the night to make s'mores! The whole venue and staff here are amazing. Thanks Ragged, for making our day perfect!

Ragged Mountain is beautiful! They have a seperate place for the ceremony where you get nothing but views of mountains! I would recommend anyone to go here if they really love the more woodsy area with mountain views and a more rustic inside for the reception! :)
