Quality of Service

Both our ceremony and reception were held at the Governor Hill Mansion. The Mansion itself is absolutely gorgeous, and looks amazing even with minimal decorations. Elaine was responsive and accommodating for all of our requests, and did an amazing job pulling our vision together. The rental fees and catering were very, very reasonable compared to other venues we looked at, and gave us the most bang for our buck. The catering, which is done by The Liberal Cup in Hallowell, was delicious. Our guests were raving about the food, and the portion sizes were large and filling. Drinks were also delicious, and Elaine was even able to get a specific type of wine that we asked for. Everything went perfectly on our wedding day thanks to Elaine and Jamie, and we highly recommend the Governor Hill Mansion to anyone looking for an affordable, elegant venue in central Maine.

Thank you, Sarah. It was our pleasure to host you and your guests. All our best to you both!

Affordable Elegance

In the heart of Maine's capital, you'll find one of the state's most beautiful homes.  Governor John Freemont Hill (1855-1912) commissioned Maine's foremost architect, John Calvin Stevens, to design a grand Colonial Revival home.  This stately building was used as the governor's home until his daughter and grandchildre n gave it to the Oblate Fathers for a retreat home in 1949.

Since then, the Governor Hill Mansion has been used as a site for retreats, conferences, and gatherings of all kinds. 

Let us help you make your wedding memorable.  We have intimate rooms, larger ones, and a banquet hall to suit all your needs.  Both the interior and exterior provide elegant and dramatic backdrops for pictures.  Our rooms are available for rehearsal lunches and dinners, ceremonies, and receptions.
