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.Sent on 10/21/2016

We loved having our wedding at Gore Place! Marjorie helped us from start to finish, and was always upbeat and full of helpful hints and ideas. We enjoyed working with vendors that she recommended and the day itself went very smoothly. We were able to do a beautiful outdoor ceremony as well as enjoy the carriage house for cocktail hour and a tented reception. It was a great choice as well as reasonably priced venue for our wedding and Marjorie was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the months of planning.Sent on 11/11/2015

We had our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party at Gore Place on 6/20/15, shortly after the completion of the renovated carriage house. Though we really wanted to use the SPECTACULAR carriage house, our daugher insisted on using the tent, having always fantasized about an outdoor party. And, we had such a wonderful day at this spectacular venue. Everything was perfect. Marjorie was exceedingly professional from the first time we got in touch with her, which was relatively late as we had booked another venue, but then got bumped from it - a TRUE blessing in the end. She responded to our emails and calls promptly, recommended "Simply Serving II" as we were having our caterer drop off the food and we needed servers and folks to set up and take down the tables and chairs. (Simply Serving was also wonderful). There was an event the night before ours and Marjorie went out on a limb and arranged for the lights the other folks had rented to be left for our event too, and it added a very special feel. She was eager to make suggestions in response to our questions but also allowed us to hire our own caterer. She even made it possible for us to surprise our daughter with an ice cream truck by allowing it to drive up right to the door of the tent!Sent on 06/26/2015
Between Marjorie and Simply Serving and all they did, we were able to walk into the beautiful tent (thanks for the lights!) and be full guests at our own party.
Thank you doesn't even begin to express our appreciation for all they did for us! Marjorie is truly a master at what she does and we could not have been happier!
Marjorie and Gore Place made our entire family (and all our guests) tremendously happy.

Gore place is a lovely venue for weddings and special events. Between their three season tent, magnificent grounds and newly renovated carriage this venue boasts of unique charm and elegance. Marjorie is always a joy to work with she is friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
Gore Place has readily become a desirable wedding destination in the Greater Boston area. With the inclusion of the new tent for up to 200 guests and the recent renovations to the Carriage House for smaller receptions; Gore Place is a malleable and well managed facility. As a caterer who works with Gore Place frequently for weddings, we always look forward to working with their very capable staff. Marjorie, the Function Manager, is especially helpful given her wealth of knowledge in regards to the space and her vast experience in event planning. Every wedding we have catered at this venue has gone off without a hitch.
