This is a fabulous location, for a couple looking for an elegant location which gives you some privacy.Sent on 08/14/2015
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

GORGEOUS and affordable estate venue!
If I could get married again at the Lyman Estate I would do it in a heart beat! The inside and outside are absolutely beautiful and there's no better team to help run your event than Nicole Skarbek and her team! She was so responsive and helpful (even with the smallest and unimportant questions!) and I wish we could get married again because our day was PERFECT! If you are considering this venue you should do it! There is so much flexibility with the different rooms and set up. I promise it will be the best day ever!Sent on 07/09/2019

The Perfect Day!
We searched high and low for a venue in near Boston that was close to the city for folks who were traveling, could accommodate our headcount while still being affordable and had the vintage/backyard cocktail party esthetic we were trying to achieve. The Lyman Estate accomplished all of these things and so much more. As someone who is Type A, having the freedom to make your wedding day exactly what you want was ideal. They give you some suggested caterers and other vendors but we really had a blank slate to work with which we loved. Nicole (Venue Coordinator) also made sure she understood our vision and between her and our vendor team, executed perfectly. The grounds are gorgeous and fit our beautiful sail cloth tent while still giving guests the opportunity to explore the estate and all the charm it has to offer. I would highly recommend the Lyman Estate to any other couple in a heart beat!Sent on 07/01/2019

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 !
