We host, plan, and cater events here at the Curtis House, our 1850s home built by George William Curtis, then the editor of Harpers Weekly. It’s a charming, sprawling old house that abuts the town green. During warmer months events take place in our gardens and fully restored late 19th-century barn, with an attached turn of the century glass greenhouse. When it's a bit more chilly we host smaller events in a heated section of the barn or in the house itself.
An event here goes beyond the typical five-hour party. We host one event a weekend and for three days the entire Curtis House, barn and grounds are yours, including overnight accommodations for up to nine. Feel free to host your rehearsal dinner outside in our apple orchard, guests only have to move into the house for an after party. or have a morning after brunch with family in the sunroom.
We'll take care of the planning, day of coordination, catering, any rental needs and if you'd like floral designs and the cake. Whatever you imagine for your event, we're here to help you realize your dreams. We'll help you every step of the way, from planning to coordinating the day. We open our home to you and take away all the stress of planning your dream day. We want to make your day about who you are.
Our late 19th-century barn has recently been restored and fully opened for events in 2017. The barn retains its rustic charm with exposed beams, locally milled hardwood floors, and a stone patio that opens into one of our cut flower gardens. In the spring of 2018 our antique Lord & Burnham glass greenhouse, which extends from the back of the barn, will be complete.
Ceremonies typically take place under the apple trees or in front of a newly built stone wall, but we're also next door to two iconic New England churches and within a few miles of beautiful scenic vistas.
Planning a winter wedding? No problem, we can accommodate smaller celebrations inside a heated portion of the barn or in the Curtis House.
