The Manor at Blue Hills
Just a half hour from Boston, The Manor at Blue Hills is the classic colonial location for your elegant tented reception. With 44 acres of property and a restored historical mansion, you'll fall in love with its simplistic charm and landscaped grounds. Labeled "The Land of the Great Hill" by the Native Americans that once resided here, the The Manor at Blue Hills boasts lush green land at the foot of the Blue Hills reservation area.
On your wedding day, host your wedding party inside one of the manor's historically decorated rooms, followed by an outdoors ceremony against a stone terrace wall. Transition indoors to the manor's large foyer and to the upper terrace for an indoor/outdoor free flowing cocktail hour, and then dance the night away under a tented reception on the back lawn.
Excited about giving back? The Manor at Blue Hills uses all wedding proceeds to help preserve its open space, educate visitors on the history of the land, and host community events open to the public.
