With all the tranquility and privacy of the Maine woods and touch of rustic southern elegance, the Historic Hilltop Estate offers the perfect experience for couples trying to host the ultimate wedding weekend. With gorgeous brick facade and a private orchard with apple blossoms, the combination of rustic beauty and charm is truly one of a kind. The apple orchard and its stone walled pastures present the perfect opportunity for gorgeous ceremony or reception setting.
The brick home and its elegance are complemented by a more traditional New England white placard barn. The barn can be used for smaller receptions, dancing or cocktail hours -- with its own stone fireplace and stage for a band. The sprawling estate itself is included in the venue rental so couples are able to have 16 of their guests overnight. The included overnights are perfect for couples who want to be involved in setting up the venue for their wedding with all their personal touches, or those who want to spend a couple days with their friends and family hiking or swimming in the nearby state parks. Within half an hour there are many small towns with their cute diners and the larger resort town of Sunday River with its restaurants and shops.
