Wadsworth Mansion Connecticut

The Wadsworth Mansion distinguishes itself by hosting only one event each day. With elegant ambiance and the freedom to design a truly unique and memorable event, the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate is the ultimate place to host your celebration -of-a-lifetime.

Considered to be one of the most beautiful properties in Connecticut, The Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate is the quintessential country estate exemplifying the Gilded-Age and the perfect setting for an elegant affair.

Restored in 1999 to its original grandeur, this 20th century Beaux Arts style mansion is framed by formal landscaping and nestled on 103 acres of wooded park lands in the rolling hills of the Connecticut River Valley.

The mansion’s ballrooms with marble fireplaces and coffered ceilings can comfortably accommodate up to two hundred guests for a formal sit down dinner and larger numbers for an informal cocktail reception. The loggia, a sun drenched room with vaulted ceilings and French doors, opens onto a grand patio. Overlooking a seven hundred foot vista, the patio is perfect for entertaining during cocktail hour and dancing beneath the stars. The tennis pavilion and rose trellis provide an intimate setting for an outdoor ceremony.

 

 

Wadsworth Mansion was voted the 2nd best wedding venue in Connecticut by the experts.

Nestled in a Forest atmosphere, the gorgeous old mansion looks like the White House.  High Tree Canopy, big lawns, nice ceremony location surrounded by roses. George Petro – GSP Fine Photography

Wadsworth has an impressive entrance –  Late 18th century grandeur, sweeping lawns and expansive grounds including a tennis house and rose gardens. Best suited for midsize events which are hosted in the three public rooms on the main floor though they can tent the patio. The staff is very personable and flexible.

This historic Connecticut mansion is a favorite of ours as it is simply romantic and absolutely gorgeous. With a capacity of 200 guests and amazing architecture this wedding venue is stunning. The grounds offer a variety of on-site ceremony locations.  During the warmer months you can dance the night away on the patio and allow your guests to mingle outside and even have a special firework display!  Two unique ballrooms with cozy fireplaces and the beautiful loggia offer lots of opportunities for stations, cocktail receptions or sit-down affairs.  The beautiful bar has another fireplace which is a perfect area to snuggle up to for photos while sipping on your signature cocktail.  The grounds are beautiful all year round making this spot a dream venue for your photographer!

My husband and I got married at the Wadsworth Mansion. It was raining and it couldn't have been more perfect. The staff was very accommodating and helpful, the facilities and grounds are amazingly cared for and having a candlelit ceremony in front of a fireplace was the most romantic ceremony - lucky it was mine! Everything from the marble floors to the mantle places, to the little nooks to the stone patio leading to a sprawling lawn made for the best photographs which will last a lifetime. A lot of our guests said it was the most intimate and romantic wedding they had ever attended. I would recommend the Wadsworth to anyone looking to have a romantic and unforgettable experience. Its a unique wedding venue. Rain or shine Wadsworth Mansion is an amazing place.

I planned my wedding from start to finish in 3 months at the Wadsworth Mansion. No doubt it was a stressful time but the staff made it that much easier. If you go to their website you can see pictures of the facility...and it is as beautiful as it looks. The grounds are perfect for taking pictures.
