For couples looking for a balance of colonial elegance and private tranquility of the New Hampshire forest and mountains, The Estate at Terrace Pines has it all. Located just 10 minutes from all the restaurants, shops and hotels of the busy college town of Keene, New Hampshire, this venue offers guests access to modern amenities as well fantastic hiking, fishing and fall leaf peeping. The venue itself, is located on 7 acres of private forest which give couples and guests the chance to experience the true quiet and privacy of being within one of New Hampshire's oldest forests.
As guests arrive, they'll enter a private winding drive that opens up to a colonial estate with circle drive for easy drop-off. The estate's many lawns are terraced by original stonewalls harkening back to the historic colonial era of New Hampshire when the home was originally constructed. Each lawn area offers a different vibe -- mountain views, secluded alcove in the forest or estate focused backdrop -- for a couple to create the ceremony and tented reception combination they feel best represents them.
The beautiful and professionally decorated home is included for a 3-night stay (Thursday-Sunday) and allows couples a chance to arrive early and create a truly customized and personal event.
