Amazing Woodbound Wedding!
The Woodbound was an AMAZING place to get married! The wedding coordinator I worked with (who is now the GM of the INN) was there for me every step of the way. She held my hand during our rehearsal dinner, and during our ceremony. Whatever I requested, she made sure it was done, and she even put up with a few bridezilla moments with grace and aplomb! I am SO happy I was able to work with such an easygoing coordinator. The FOOD was amazing as well! We got a number of compliments on how delicious it was, and NO complaints (which is surprising, as we had a lot of guests who are difficult to please!) The waitstaff/barstaff was great, and we got a number of compliments about them as well - and they put up with a number of people who may have overimbibed just a bit! ;-) We had a lakeside ceremony that we feared would be rained out, but it ended up being a beautiful day. If you are looking for a gorgeous lakeside ceremony site, the Woodbound's private beach on Lake Contoocok is just lovely. Likewise with our reception space in the ballroom (they had just refinished the floors and it looked wonderful for our wedding) which is a simple and elegant space, and they are more than willing to work with you on what kind of decorations you want to put up. The ONLY issue I had was that the ballroom was quite hot due to a heatwave we were having that week, and I would urge the owners of the Woodbound to install some sort of central AC system, rather than having window AC's. However, if it had not been so hot, it would have been MUCH more bearable. But that's the chance you take with a summer wedding! I cannot stress enough how wonderful a venue this was, and what a fabulous time everyone had (especially myself and my husband!) We have had many, many people come up to us to tell us that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who is looking to have a beautiful and fantastic wedding!

We'll Be Back!
My 78 year old mother, Suzanne Crossley, introduced us to your restaurant a few months back and then again this week for Thanksgiving buffet. We also had the pleasure of staying in the Inn Thanksgiving night after the wonderful dinner. My wife, Ann and I have travelled quite a bit around the country and have also enjoyed some very nice cruises aboard the best ships. Since moving to New Hampshire 20 years ago, your restaurant is the only one we've seen besides the Mt Washington Hotel where the food quality and the service is as professional as it gets on the best of the world class cruise liners.
It is obvious that you have taken very special care to properly communicate and reinforce the highest standards of excellence to your staff. All of them went about their work as would be expected from a true culinary expert. The food was fabulous, the presentation artful, the dining room was beautifully simple and warm, we loved the open kitchen and the prices were very fair. It is clear you have done your research. Jaffrey is a beautiful area but certainly not overly wealthy and you have brought to town an exquisite restaurant that the elite will appreciate and even the average guy in town can afford ..
I wish you could bring your brand of quality, service and price to Wolfeboro. These guys up here charge far too much for an offering that only hopes to try and measure up to yours.
We'll be back--
Best regards ,
Bob and Ann Crossley
