Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This charming 50-acre "country estate in the city" sits just 9 miles west of downtown Boston, and is home to a wonderful restored mansion, beautifully manicured grounds and gardens, and even a working farm.
  • Host an intimate wedding in the historic Carriage House, which boasts warm wood accents and rustic-chic stable doors. The mansion offers the elegant Metz Room for wedding party prep, along with near-endless photo-ops throughout—including a dramatic spiral staircase.
  • Grand celebrations are held in the peaked Century Tent, which boasts an open floor plan and windowed walls on three sides that allow views of the lush green surroundings.
