Chatham Acres

With over 30 acres bordering the White Mountain National Forest, Chatham Acres is just 1.5 hours from Portland, Maine, and offers easy access to breathtaking hikes, waterfalls, swimming holes, and natural pools.

Once home to the Boston Cooking School, the property is steeped in history becoming famous following the 1896 publication of “The Boston Cooking School Cook Book” by Fannie Merritt Farmer.

Today, couples can rent both the Guest Home and Guest Cottage for the weekend, choose to get married on the porch or off the corner of the orchard, and celebrate by setting up a custom tented reception. With plenty of lawn parking on the opposite side of the house, guests can come early and walk the grounds while snacking on the property’s blueberry and blackberry bushes, or pulling a crisp apple from the small on-site orchard.
