A Place to Gather, Relax, and Celebrate Life’s Events


“Forever is composed of nows.”

― Emily Dickinson
Step back in time and enjoy the pace of days gone by at the Thompson Inn and Cyderhouse with its panoramic views of the Lamprey River, tree lined farmland and elegant vintage grounds.

From the irresistible charm of the lovingly restored and appointed turn-of-the-century inn to the rustic elegance of the once productive Cyderhouse, you will find the perfect setting for your special day! The focus of our congenial staff will be on you and your guests because the time before, during and after your main event is exclusively yours.

We can accommodate up to 150 guests.


…outside on the veranda or under the century old maples serenaded by river rapids; inside in the common quarters of the Thompson Inn, rejuvenated Cyderhouse, or Post and Beam barn.


…the weekend is yours! One event per weekend with 10 guest rooms so you, your friends and family can stay on the premises and enjoy all our beautiful country setting has to offer.


…with local farm fresh cuisine, extensive wine selection, and full service bar. Choose one of our menu options or work with our experienced chef to set up a menu to make your day uniquely yours.
