This is a fabulous location, for a couple looking for an elegant location which gives you some privacy.
Also great if you have children attending your event.
We set up games on the grounds for the children to have fun. While the adults simply enjoyed the wonderful house grounds music and food.
I would recommend the Lyman Estate to anyone looking for an elegant , step back in time location.
I wanted to have a traditional English country wedding and that is what we got.
Thank you to Bill and Nicole

A vintage gem!
We were very happy to find the Lyman Estate for our fall wedding. We set up a tent in the back because of the number of guests attending. We had the ceremony outside under the Copper Beech tree, cocktails in the house, and dinner and dancing in the tent. Everyone remarked what a lovely setting it was. Nicole was very helpful throughout the process and Maura on the day-of.
A hidden gem very close to Boston!

We chose the Lyman Estate for our wedding because the inside of the house was just as beautiful and unique as the grounds outside so we knew we would be just as happy with Plan B (having the ceremony inside) as we would outside (Plan A). Lucky for us - it rained :)
We feel truly lucky to have been at the Lyman for our wedding. The ballroom provided an intimate setting for our ceremony that we could not have replicated outdoors. The house itself is so beautiful and interesting that it kept our guests entertained as they moved from one room to the next. We also loved that there was a bride’s suite and a groom’s suite for getting ready. Once the rain passed, we were able to be outside for pictures and use the grounds for lawn games. We also got some amazing photos in the greenhouse. Our wedding was exactly how we were hoping it would be and our guests have all been raving about the Lyman as a unique and fun venue. On top of the beautiful venue, the Lyman Estate has a great staff that is present and helpful both during the planning process and on the day of the wedding. They ensured that the day went off without a hitch and that we didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Thanks Nicole! We highly recommend the Lyman Estate!

The Lyman Estate is among the most charming venues in the Boston area and their event coordinators do an incredible job running things smoothly. One of the times I worked there (the bride was a direct descendent of Theodore Lyman) an unexpected squall rolled into town just before the outdoor ceremony was supposed to begin, the venue had things set up in a tent in no time and the whole event didn't miss a step. They have always done a great job taking care of clients and it's a pleasure photographing weddings there.
I recently had the pleasure of being the DJ and MC for a wedding at the Lyman Estate on July 20, 2013. The entire staff at the Lyman was fantastic to work with. The venue itself as a whole offers a variety of options for its customers from being able to have an outdoor ceremony, a cocktail hour on the patio, and dinner either inside our outside. As a DJ, I was very happy to see there was more than ample room inside for dancing and a separate area where guests could take a quick break for coffee and desert. The venue had some recent updates, most notably to the HVAC system which allows for great air conditioning meanwhile maintaining the feel of nostalgia. The building was erected in the 1700's. The venue is conveniently located near Boston and a few major highways and has ample parking. I respectfully and overwhelmingly endorese this venue.
Great venue ! I have performed here many times over the years and always been treated with the greatest hospitality ! Thank You ! Great Venue !
