Why We Like This Place

  • Seven historic gardens and beautifully landscaped grounds beside Narragansett Bay provide an enchanted backdrop for outdoor weddings.
  • The gracious turn-of-the-century house is a perfect place to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, with antique furnishings and gorgeous detailed ceilings that add character and charm to the proceedings.
  • A white tent with clear sides and a hardwood dance floor are included in your rental package, as well as a bridal ready room and exclusive use of the venue on your day.
