Gore Place Society's profile image

Gore Place is one of the finest country estates that remain from the Federal era, with 50 acres of landscaped grounds, farmlands and gardens. The home of Massachusetts Governor Christopher Gore and his wife, Rebecca, the estate was in their time an oasis of refined country living, and is still a hidden oasis today. Conveniently located nine miles outside of Boston, the grounds continue as a pastoral & peaceful setting for any event.

The estate’s acres of gardens and lawns provides a beautiful setting for your tented reception, from the smallest to the largest of gatherings. The spacious green lawns allow flexibility in arrangements, so that each function can to be sited in a special place. Surrounded by large evergreens and magnificent hardwoods, the beautifully maintained grounds are an attractive setting for all manner of gatherings. Gore Place maintains an elegant three season tent on the grounds available from May to October. The Gore Place tent has 3 beautiful clear sides for guests to enjoy the amazing view of the grounds and Mansion. The tent is carpeted with an integrated 20x20 dance floor and sub floor as well as lighting and electricity. Our onsite tent can seat up to 200 guests for dinner and dancing, however, with over 40 acres of landscaped and manicured grounds, there is certainly room for larger events! A Wedding Package includes use of the Carriage House for cocktails and access to the Mansion and Museum for a Dressing Room and picture taking before a ceremony.

We wanted to find a venue that was local, easy to get to, but still had natural beauty. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful and historic grounds, the mansion and the rustic appeal of the newly renovated carriage house. I had my heart set on a fall wedding and couldn't imagine another place to do it. It was also a plus that it is very close to Boston and fit into our budget. The venue is only part of the appeal, as Marjorie, the function manager was indispensable in making sure our wedding went as planned. She is very communicative, thoughtful and easy to work with with. Our beautiful fall wedding day turned into a rainy fall day but Gore Place and Marjorie's planning lends itself to multiple options, all of which made for a beautiful wedding and fun reception. We are very grateful that we were able our special day there and would recommend it to anyone planning a wedding.
