A gem of a venue
My daughter got married October 6th and had their reception at the Commanders Mansion. It was a spectacular fall day with the grounds looking beautiful and the tent beautifully set up for dinner. The cocktail hour was set up inside the mansion and then dinner and dancing occurred under the tent. The planning for this day was well over a year and we are so grateful to Tammy, Victoria and Char...…. for their assistance, flexibility and support in experiencing this wonderful event.
Last minute questions or requests were met with "sure; whatever we can do to help."
Many guests still comment as to the uniqueness of the venue and how memorable it was. We had close to 200 guests and had plenty of room to dance and socialize. I'm just sorry it is over but I know many more people who select the Commanders Mansion for any event won't be disappointed

We just got married at the Commander's Mansion on 8/12/2018. We had set our sites on the mansion from the very beginning as we knew we wanted to get married in a historic house that would be easy for our guests to get to. The Commander's Mansion has it all: a gorgeous outdoor ceremony spot, a tent already up that you can rent for the party, and a spacious historic interior -- all within 20 mins' drive from downtown Boston. Tammy and Victoria were very helpful, doing a walk-through with us and the caterer a few weeks before the wedding and helping us with the seating chart and table/chair order. They also very generously allowed us to drop off the wedding decorations a few days before the wedding. When chaos struck early on the day of our wedding (rain and a flat tire for the bride's mother), Tammy was the calm in the eye of the storm, ensuring that our ceremony was set up inside the tent without a glitch. The bridal suite and upstairs rooms provide ample space for the bridal party to get dressed and set up. We could not recommend this venue more highly! --Josh and Masha

Our first decision as an engaged couple was to get married here! We actually met our wedding planner for the first time at the Commander's annual showcase last March. All of our vendors were so thrilled to hear we were getting married there. The venue is stunning, and very convenient for guests (just a ten-minute drive from Harvard Square, and the Residence Inn is virtually across the street). The Mansion somehow managed to be both the most flexible venue we saw (in terns of vendor selection) as well as the least expensive. We hope to be back soon :-)Sent on 10/11/2018

Best place to have a wedding! Both the mansion and grape arbor are picturesque. Rae and Tammy could not be more helpful. The Commander's Mansion is a wedding venue jewel.
