About Us

Imagine a place where the grandeur of Newport combines with the beauty of Vermont in the heart of Massachusetts...

The Harding Allen Estate serves as an elegant setting for any function, from wedding receptions and private banquets to Christmas parties and corporate getaways. With our Banquet Specialist and in-house Chef, we can custom-design your function whether you are inviting 45 guests or 275.

The Harding Allen Estate specializes in garden weddings, held on our tented garden pavilion. Our semi-permanent tent is far sturdier than standard rental tents; the frame is of a state-of-the-art design, set in a concrete base. The tent overlooks the formal English gardens, and lends a delightful open-air setting to your wedding or banquet. The tent is totally weatherproof, and is furnished with French doors, carpeting and six beautiful chandeliers.

At the Harding Allen Estate, we know that everyone's tastes are unique. That's why we allow you to custom-design your menu for your special day. Working with our Wedding Consultant and our in-house Chef, you can pick precisely the dishes you want for your wedding or banquet. Our professional kitchen staff can prepare most any recipe you suggest.

The Harding Allen Estate wedding package also includes:

  • On-site ceremonies (most brides choose the pergola on our bowling green)
  • Use of the mansion and grounds for 6 hours
  • Elegant white linens and napkins (custom colors available for an additional fee)
  • Bar set-up, cake-cutting and parking attendants, all without hidden fees
