Friendly Crossways Retreat Center
About Wedding Vendor
Our wedding venue and reception site is wonderfully suited for the couple looking for a relaxed, rustic-chic country atmosphere (yet only 30 outside of Boston) with plenty of space for family members to reunite and for guests to meet, mingle and make your wedding ceremony and celebration an entirely memorable weekend. You'll have exclusive usage of our 25-acre property: wedding glade, playing fields, orchards, organic gardens (used by our on-site chef!) and a traditional New England barn with lodging for up to 65 people. Indoor seating for up to 62 and outdoors for 150 with tent.
48-hour usage of our property means you can actually take the time to enjoy the special gathering of your friends and family: play croquet, watch your friends assemble your centerpieces,tell stories around the fire circle. A flat fee covers property usage along with accommodations in our renovated 100-year old barn and farmhouse for up to 35 people in charming bedrooms decorated with hand stenciled walls and handmade quilts. You have the ability to use the dining hall and kitchen for non-reception meals, including rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch. Or take advantage of our on-site catering for as many as 150 reception guests under a tent that you may decorate yourself. The owner-chef uses local produce as much as possible--frequently from her own organic gardens--to produce delicious, beautifully presented omnivore, vegetarian and/or vegan meals.
