Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts
First settled in 1621, Buzzards Bay was one of the first permanent American towns, a historical fishermen village, nestled at the base of Cape Cod. Hidden from the water by acres of ancient pine forests, a historic dairy farm was transformed into a family-owned training stable and horse show facility several decades ago. This equestrian facility offers eighty acres of pastures, woodlands, and riding arenas, with charming red and white antique farm buildings offering a truly unique backdrop to your celebration. Just a stone throw from Cape Cod and only fifty minutes from Boston, this equestrian facility feels too pristine and hidden to be real. So whether you are looking for equestrian elegance, where guests can watch the horses trotting from one paddock to the next, or more a large scale New England farm wedding where guests have cocktails and admire the classic New England red barns, Nightingale Stables can offer both for up to 200 guests.
In the center of the farm is a large, flat grass riding green, surrounded by pastures and stands of pine and oak trees. There is plenty of space for a tent, and parking is easily accessible for your guests, caterers, and other support staff.
Located just one mile from the Cape Cod Canal, the farm is easily accessible from Routes 495, 195, and 3, and is just an hour’s drive from either Boston or Providence.
