Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This breathtaking, utterly unique mansion set on a rocky ledge overlooking Gloucester Harbor was once home to America's first professionally-recognized interior designer, Henry Davis Sleeper. Each of its 40 rooms is completely different in design, taking inspiration from a person, place, shape, color, or object.
  • Your intimate wedding ceremony will be held on the home's stunning terrace, surrounded by gardens that have been refurbished to reflect what they would have looked like at their most lovely, in the 1920s and 30s.
  • Rental fees help support Historic New England's stewardship and preservation of Beauport 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.


$250 per hour for First Looks and Wedding Photos overlooking Gloucester Harbor!
