    The wedding of my dreams!

    When I got engaged I really wanted that "mansion" feel. I came across The Mansion on Turner Hill when looking for venues in the Boston area. This is the one and only venue that my fiance and I looked at. They were so accommodating and their prices blew everyone else out of the park! We were a pandemic wedding so we needed to postpone, luckily there was a spot open on May 30, 2021 and we took it.

    Fast forward to the big day, it poured, and I mean the sky opened for at least 48 hours! I was bumming because the landscape at the mansion is gorgeous and I really wanted the ceremony to be help outside. But, we had to settle with being inside, and my god I am so happy we did! When you book your wedding at the mansion you get to use 7 of their absolutely stunning rooms. Everything was warm and cozy and just made for the most amazing experience.

    We worked with Carol and she made us feel at ease and comfortable throughout the whole day. Weeks later and all of our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful our venue was. I can't recommend this place enough!

    Turner Hill is magical

    I recently got married at Turner Hill and it was a dream. Shopping around for venues I was looking at hotels, or banquet-style venues in Boston, and they all felt a little sterile. When we decided to look a little closer to home, we found Turner Hill and immediately knew that the mansion was the perfect place. Our guests LOVED it here and haven't stopped talking about it - especially the flow of the night since we had the ceremony in the garden, cocktails behind the mansion, dinner in the tent, and the party inside the mansion. You were never in one place for too long. Carol is very professional and clearly has a ton of experience hosting weddings here. I knew we were in good hands with her and never worried about anything all night.
