Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Built in 1800 in the stately Federal style, this New Ipswich estate has a romantic history: It was constructed as a wedding gift from Charles Barrett Sr. to his son and daughter-in-law, and was home to generations of their children and grandchildren.
  • The estate’s buildings have been wonderfully maintained, with interiors boasting period furnishings, art, and wallpaper. In the main house, you’ll find a quaint parlor and elegant ballroom, while the grounds feature treasures like an elevated gazebo surrounded by towering shade trees.
  • Rental fees help support Historic New England’s stewardship and preservation of Barrett 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.
