Our experience at Searles was just perfection. We had looked at quite a few venues, and while they were all beautiful, they all lacked that right feel for what we wanted. We also weren't crazy about the sales pitch that every place handed us. Shaun at Searles was amazing. He has a very calm vibe, and he's very straightforward with what they offer, what they can do, and what it may cost. No fees were hidden, and they didn't nickle & dime you on every little thing. Everyone was friendly and accommodating, and very relaxed about letting us come by if no event was happening to see the venue as often as we needed to. The day off went off perfectly & every single member of the staff went above and beyond. Plus, the location is just - wow! We had SO many compliments from our guests about **everything**. I think my favorite might have been my aunt, who told my mother, sotto voce, "I got the haddock. Usually haddock at a wedding is ehhhhhhh, but this is so good!" The total we spent looks high, but remember that it came with a day-of coordinator in Scott & Shaun, table linens, chairs for the ceremony and the reception, the ceremony itself, the food & the DJ was included as part of a bundle offered. We got married on a Thursday to save some costs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Searles to any prospective couple.

We had my sons wedding here this past weekend and I can't say enough great things about this venue, the food, the professionalism of Scott and Allie. They were easy to work with, always a step if heaf of what we needed, anything we may have over looked they were right there to fulfill our needs. The detail they put into this wedding was beyond any and all our expectations!

I cannot say enough good things about Searles Castle. They went above and beyond to help us. Sean is phenomenal. Hands down the best. Everything went perfectly because of him. He is kind, professional, thorough, helpful, and has a terrific sense of humor. Working with him made planning much easier. My mom died two years ago to cancer, and I wanted to do a memorial video for her to play at the reception. They allowed me to come up and film in and on the castle grounds. I highly, highly recommend Searles Castle. You will not be disappointed in any fashion.

I don't even know where to start. Shaun and Scott are AMAZING! No detail was spared! Every whim was attended to, Scott even went out to get me banana because I was craving one. To say the experience was full service, would not even do it justice. I am so happy with how seamlessly they ran the day. The entire staff was attentive to our every need and want. Every guest was so impressed with the service and awed by how beautifully kept the castle is. I could not be any happier with our choice to be married at Searle's Castle. I highly recommend not only the venue but also the management and their preferred vendors.

I cannot say enough good things about how amazing this castle is. It is run by 2 men -- Shaun and Scott -- and Scott's wife Ali. They are all AMAZING to work with. They are down to earth and low key, which worked perfectly with my and my husband's mentality. They kept us calm and reassured from beginning to end. They never made us feel pressured and they were very up front with all the information. They were realistic with us about everything -- cost, things to leave out etc. The guys gave us a great tour in late January and when they said they had an open day in October -- we had to do it. Shaun and Scott helped us to plan a wedding for just over 200 people in about 9 months. They answered all my annoying emails quickly and made sure that I was completely comfortable with any and all decisions. The wedding was everything I could have hoped for and more. It is truly the most stunning venue you will ever see. The tent is gorgeous -- it has chandeliers, couches, beautiful lighting etc. I got married on October 9, 2016. It hadn't rained all summer and basically all fall. Well, on that day -- it poured! Despite the ceremony being set up for outside, the employees at the castle were able to transition everything to inside the tent smoothly and still managed to fit my vision perfectly. AND they did this within 20 minutes. The ceremony was just as stunning inside as it would have been outside in the courtyard. These people are true professionals. They truly want you to feel like your day is the most magical day ever. Scott, Shaun, and Ali were attentive the entire night and made sure we were all having a great time. They even allowed us extend our wedding the night of for an extra hour because of how much fun everyone was having! We have had numerous people tell us how the wedding venue was one of the most beautiful, unique, and magical they have ever seen -- and this is with it down pouring all day. If you want your very own happily ever after, you HAVE to see this place!

Ask lots of questions! They are super accommodating but you wont' know that they can do so if you don't ask. They are a wonderful group and truly focus on making your day unique and special.

I recently got married at Searles Castle in June and cannot begin to explain how this was the best decision my wife and I could have made. After touring a few other venues we realized that there was something missing. One of the party planners at a different venue told us that when you find the right place you'll know instantly. Of course she was hoping that the right decision would be her venue. Driving up the hill to the castle and walking through the gate at the front courtyard, we instantly knew that this was the right decision. Our initial tour began with Sean walking us around the castle. He was very knowledgable but never pushy. Our experience with both Sean and Scott was outstanding. They always welcomed my many calls and emails and we're happy to answer any questions I had. Sean and Scott have a list of preferred vendors, and they were just as outstanding as the guys at the castle. We chose A photographic Memory for our photographer, Susannes Flowers for our florist, Get Down Tonight for our DJ, and Jacques Pastry for our wedding cake. All in all the experience was outstanding and we would highly recommend! The venue is beautiful!

When my husband and I first started looking at venues we knew 2 things: we wanted somewhere Southern NH and it needed to fit 250 people. When I heard Searles Castle I thought I would hate it because I don't like the whole "queen/ princess" thing. From the first steps getting out of the car to the end of our wedding I was blown away. It was nothing like I imagined but everything I dreamed my wedding would be. Shaun and Scott were amazing to work with. They answered my emails within minutes and never had a problem with any changes or requests I made. Leading up to the wedding was a breeze and they made me so much more relaxed. The day of the wedding from the second I walked in, to the very end of the night I literally could not ask for better. From me forgetting my flowers, to not having a drink, to making me laugh when my dad and I were almost in tears, someone was there to help and make the day perfect. My guests loved the venue and exploring the castle, the food was delicious, and there was never a line at the bar (even with 200 guests). They catered to us and were worth every penny we spent. I was so happy and relaxed the whole day and although I hate it, I felt like a princess/ queen. This venue is gorgeous and awesome. Shaun and Scott are the best and the rest of the staff were professional and so sweet. I couldn't ask for anything better.

My fiancee and I visited Searles Castle in early January and feel in love with everything about it. When they told us they had an opening in June, we were sold. Everything went so smoothly, and the service was absolutely amazing. We used the bridal suite to get ready before the ceremony, which was gorgeous, and had our ceremony out in the courtyard. All of our guests were completely floored by how beautiful the grounds and the castle were. The food was excellent and the service was so personalized. The serving staff brought dinners to each table, and knew, by name, who was supposed to receive which plate. With a guest list of 150 people, that kind of personalization and attention to detail is extremely rare and hard to come by. They also saved a "to go" container of blueberry pie (my special dessert request from our baker) to make sure that I got a piece at the end of the night. Absolute best party I have ever been to, and best day of my life.

Searles Castle did an amazing job! I could have not had a better venue for my wedding. They were so helpful and did so much for me to make my day less stressful. The venue is absolutely beautiful. There are many different spots to take beautiful wedding pictures at. I feel that the Searles Castle went above and beyond and no other venue can compare to that. If you are looking for the fairy tale wedding and feeling like a princess this is the spot!
