We chose Dexter's because of the stunning view and the ability to house such a large amount of people. With almost 85% of the wedding guests flying in from out of state it was really important to us to have a whole weekend and make it as easy and comfortable for them as possible. The Innkeeper, John, is incredible and so flexible and helpful. We actually ended up having the worst weather imaginable on our wedding day - heavy raining and freezing temps - so we were unfortunately forced to get married in the tent, but John was fast to react and made sure our day went incredibly smoothly. John works with you to figure out all the rentals, and actually tries to save you money in the process. Our guests loved staying there and checkin/checkout process was smooth and relaxed. The best part of the space is that you can really customize your day to whatever you and your fiance desire, and we both loved having that freedom! He also was able to book our reception bartender for us who was incredible cost effective, friendly, and efficient.

Dexter's Inn was the absolute perfect setting for our September wedding. We had fallen in love with the inn in 2013 at my husband's brother's wedding -- so when it came time to booking a venue for ourselves, it was a no-brainer! We had the entire inn to ourselves from Friday to Sunday, so our families and friends were able to relax, enjoy the scenery, play lawn games, and just spend time with each other. The views are absolutely breathtaking, and the Inn itself has so much character. The mountains of Sunapee were the perfect backdrop for our outdoor wedding, and the convenience of walking across a dirt road to the reception tent is unbeatable. The after-party in the "barn" (ping pong, pool, foosball, etc.) was a huge hit with all our guests :)

John, the innkeeper was so fantastic to work with. We were kind of clueless with the planning process, and John was so experienced and organized that he made it so easy for us to know which steps to take when -- answering all our questions quickly and kindly. We also had Dexter's cater our wedding, and it was so delicious -- Rolf Schmidt and his catering team did an incredible job!

Everything was absolutely perfect: The atmosphere, the accommodations, the scenery, the food, the service, the price. So many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to. And we agree :)

Dexter's Inn was the most spectacular and fun place to host our wedding weekend! Gorgeous views and grounds. John at Dexter's was professional, made sure everything went smooth all weekend, and was helpful every step of the way. We had the entire inn and grounds for 2 nights. It was important to us to be able to have more than just our wedding to spend time with our friends and family. There are 16 rooms and a 2 bedroom cottage that our guests could stay in. There are dog friendly rooms too. We played lawn games all day, hung at the pool, played in the game room all night, and had all our wedding events right there on site. It was truly epic and memorable. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfy. Breakfast is included with the rooms and was delicious. We had Dexter's cater our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. For the price, everything was great!!! They really took care of everything and coordinated with all of of vendors. The planning process went smooth too. We met twice with the innkeeper and the rest we did through e-mail. We ended up staying 4 nights and look forward to now having our family reunions there. Everything is there in one place and made being able to enjoy the time with family and friends that much more enjoyable. Stress free wedding weekend!

Perfect wedding location. It offered beautiful scenery and was completely private for our guests! John acted as a wedding coordinator throughout our wedding planning process and kept us organized! It probably would have been chaos if it were not for him! He has a lot of experience and made things completely non-stressful!

I can't say enough good words about my wedding experience at Dexter's Inn!! It was the perfect venue - beautiful, fun, friendly & helpful staff!! John is excellent. I planned my wedding from Colorado and he made the experience stress-free. He is professional, communicates well and often, helpful, knowledgable, extremely flexible, and welcoming. His calm demeanor helped me stay calm too all weekend, and he even served as a day-of wedding planner and vendor coordinator. He even facilitated our entire ceremony rehearsal!! It was obvious the work and care he puts into the Inn, and he put the same work and care into our wedding weekend. We filled all the rooms with guests starting Friday, and held both our ceremony on reception on property - I couldn't have asked for better, and all our guests loved it!! It has more character than an average hotel, while being completely comfortable, and the property is unbelievably stunning!! Rolf Schmidt, the in-house caterer, is an excellent choice with this venue as well. The food is delicious, great service, and competitive pricing. I would recommend this place to anyone for a New England wedding!!

My husband Mark and I were married at Dexter's Inn in September of 2014. John and his staff made our wedding weekend the best weekend of our lives. The location is beautiful and the quality of the service is incredible. We never once had any stress about our venue because John made it so easy to plan and organize the weekend of our dreams. I would tell anyone wanting an outdoor wedding to marry at Dexter's Inn!!

John, Helen and their staff went above and beyond for my wedding weekend extravaganza. It was all hands on deck for my wedding as I had a lot of specific decor and things I wanted to do. John and Helen never once shied away at some of my ridiculous suggestions. The guests that stayed at the inn raved about the comfortability, affordability, decor, landscape, and delicious breakfast. Dexter's Inn is beautiful, comfortable and makes you feel like you are on top of the world. We had a little trouble with weather and the Dexter's Inn staff took care of it effortlessly. My guests had fun all weekend and were well taken care of. THANK YOU TO JOHN AND HELEN AND THE WHOLE CREW AT DEXTER'S INN FOR MAKING MY DREAM WEDDING COME TRUE.

I recently had my wedding at Dexter's Inn and had an absolutely amazing weekend, start to finish, much in part to the staff and accommodations at Dexter's Inn. The Inn owner John was very helpful from the start in planning and vendor recommendation all the way through the wedding being there for everything I needed. Getting married isn't inexpensive but I would say there is a great value in selecting Dexter's Inn as your venue. The best part of the whole weekend was having our entire family able to stay with us onsite for the whole weekend. I would definitely recommend Dexter's for a beautiful outdoor wedding.

My husband, Matt, and I had our wedding celebration at Dexter's Inn last September! We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! John and the rest of the staff were excellent to work with and were so helpful throughout our entire wedding weekend!
Our family and friends are still RAVING about how much fun they had at our wedding! Everyone (even a full year later!!!!) tells us its the best wedding they've ever been too!
Dexter's is picturesque, quaint, romantic, rustic, laid-back and extremely reasonably priced! It was the first and last venue we looked at! As soon as we stepped foot on the grounds, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for!
I recommended Dexter's to everyone who is looking for a memorable location for their wedding! You will not be disappointed! I wish I could share our pictures on here, because the amount of love everyone had that weekend shone so bright in all of our photographs!

Dexter's was the perfect place for our wedding. We had the entire Inn to ourselves, filled with family and friends for the weekend. John, the owner, is extremely laid back, and accommodating. We could not have asked for better service. He catered to our needs/wants without question. Dexter's truly made our wedding day about us. Many of our guests were also very impressed with Dexter's, and we had a lot of people asking how we found such a cool venue. I highly recommend Dexter's to anyone who is looking for a destination weekend wedding in the mountains. They provide the most beautiful scenery, friendly staff, and the price is right.
