Why We Like This Place

• The natural beauty of rural Massachusetts. You’ll be wowed by stunning views of the Nashoba Valley’s rolling hills, local orchards, hay fields and hardwood forests.

• The perfect location. Home of Fruitlands Museum, the historic Prospect House is set atop a hill overlooking the Nashua River Valley, and is a great space to stage your bar, serve appetizers or display your wedding cake. A lovely tent situated on an adjacent brick patio features beautiful chandeliers, removable walls and large windows. The garden and expansive lawns are ideal for outdoor ceremonies.  

• A menu that reflects the best flavors of each season. The cuisine is elegantly prepared and thoughtfully presented by Fireside Catering, a company that sources local and sustainable food from area farms and artisan purveyors, including their own Gibbet Hill Farm.
