About The Maxwell House

A grand mansion built in the 1920s as a private summer residence to the Maxwell family, the Maxwell House serves as a historic site to the area!

The Maxwell family chose noted architects Marston and Maybury to design their home in the elegant Mediterranean Italianate style, with tile roofing, stucco walls, a strong Palladian entrance and elaborate detailing. The soaring entry hall and decoratively painted ceiling panels suggest immediately that other grand spaces will open to you. Event rentals include access to a library meeting room, complete with a dark wood table and fireplace, main ballroom with windows facing a rose garden, a grand staircase and entryway, bold dining room fit for the era and perfect for meetings, and the open-air back patio! Weddings also include dressing suites!

Let me start this by saying, our wedding would not have been as incredible as it was, were it not for the Maxwell House and their incredible staff. Lori, Lisa and Kevin did there very best to make sure every detail of our day was attended to. They worked with our budget, they were easy to communicate with through the preparation process and even stepped in to help us problem solve at the last minute - above and beyond what we could have imagined and hoped for. On the day of, their staff was quietly helpful, making sure any needs were met without disrupting guests. Everyone commented on what a special space the Maxwell House is and how personal our big day felt. We cannot recommend this venue enough. Thank you Maxwell House, Lori, Lisa and Kevin for making our day the most memorable of our lives. -Mark and Kyle

As the Director of Development for a local organization, I've had events at many different venues. The Maxwell House was a superb location for our annual major donor dinner. Our 80 guests fit perfectly for dinner and a speaking program in the main room, and enjoyed a cocktail reception on the back patio with the lovely globe light strings overhead and dessert reception in the grand foyer following dinner. We used the large dining room table for a double-sided buffet service, which worked great for quick dinner service. The ambience of the Maxwell House is elegant yet not pretentious. The flexibility of having various spaces to use created an event with a easy flow from beginning to end, and if we had a larger turn out for the event, there would have been numerous ways to design the event and event flow. The staff were all gracious and accommodating, a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. I look forward to our next event there!
