Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Originally built in the late 1700s, this historic home was purchased nearly 100 years later by a mother and step-daughter, who artfully restored both the manor house and its incredible gardens.
  • Choose between two breathtaking spots: the Garden, with its flowering vines and charming trellis creating a picture-perfect backdrop, or the River View, where guests can soak in a dreamy panorama of the Salmon Falls River.
  • Rental fees help support Historic New England’s stewardship and preservation of Hamilton House and other important properties throughout the area. Your rental comes with a “thank you” membership to the organization, which includes free tours of this home and dozens of others.
