Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This striking stone gem has stood watch over the South End since 1887. With a stately Gothic Revival style and impressive six-story tower, it remains one of Boston's most photographed buildings.
  • Every room is more wonderful than the next: Will you choose the Parlor, with its fireplace seating areas and catwalk overlook? Or the Gallery, where ornate vintage chandeliers cast a warm glow on the original wood finishings? Perhaps you'll opt for the light-filled Library...decisions, decisions!
  • Your menu is crafted by Longwood's fantastic Executive Chef. A native of Maine, David Blessing's joy for food is contagious and is exhibited in dishes that focus on local, seasonal ingredients that highlight the best of New England.
