The Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate




Considered to be one of the most beautiful properties in Connecticut, The Wadsworth Mansion 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 parklands 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 terrace. Overlooking a seven hundred foot vista, the terrace is perfect for entertaining during cocktail hour and dancing beneath the stars. The tennis pavilion offers an intimate setting for an outdoor ceremony. 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 is the ultimate place to host your celebration.
