5 stars across the board
Nicole made our experience AMAZING! We were so stressed about pulling off our wedding but Nicole made everything run smoothly from start to finish. She was very responsive to email and a joy to work with. Nicole even set up fun lawn games (like giant Jenga) for our young cousins. Would highly recommend her (along with the Lyman Estate of course) to anyone planning a wedding.Sent on 01/09/2020

The Absolute Best
I truly can't imagine a better venue for a wedding. My husband and I booked the Lyman the day we toured it. Partially because of the stunning estate and grounds, and partially because of the incomparable Nicole (Lyman's coordinator).
The estate transports you back in time. Original components are there, but it's been very well-loved and taken care of over the years. None of that dark wooded, Gothic look. The Lyman is light and dreamy. Guests enjoy multiple rooms and it feels like relaxing in a lovely home. We mainly used the indoors, but we danced and had toasts on the veranda outside which was special. We also took photos in the greenhouse and around the beautiful grounds.
Nicole and her crew are something else. They instill the highest level of confidence in their clients. They make it clear that there is no request or issue that they can't solve or work out for you in a way that is acceptable. E-mails are answered both promptly and thoroughly. As I busied myself worrying about details for my big day, I NEVER thought about the Lyman. I knew they were prepared to make it perfect and didn't need anything from me to do that. We had a Friday evening wedding and I still can't believe the price we got this space for!!
I'm not local to the area, but as I told people over 18 months that this is where I would be getting married, person after person commented that they had attended a wedding there at some point and that it was a memorable one. I am so proud to have gotten married at this historic home!Sent on 10/06/2019

Lyman + Nicole = Amazing!
We had our wedding at the Lyman Estate and hired Nicole as our day of coordinator. We could not have been happier! The venue was beautiful in late August and we had a perfect set of lighting by starting at 5pm. Nicole was amazing throughout the process, helping with all of our questions, big and small. We can't recommend that combination enough!Sent on 10/07/2019

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 !
