The Harding Allen Estate
Our main ballroom has been revamped to have open tented sides with significant open air flow for events, while still maintaining an elegant feel. When there are no issues with Covid restrictions, we return to our normal room! As we are a little further out in the country from Worcester, Boston, and Springfield, we are typically designated in the low-covid zone rating.
We have lots of outdoor spaces for your guests to explore, play yard games, and enjoy our gardens while practicing social distancing! And our dance floor and gardens work provide ample space for guests to dance while distancing! Check here for photos! *
The Harding Allen Estate operates as a bed & breakfast inn, with six distinctive bedrooms,
each offering privacy and comfort in delightful surroundings.
We also offer more bedrooms in two cottages, the Rose Cottage and Lilac Cottage, attached to the grounds.
Please contact us for pricing and reservation availability. We prioritize guests attending weddings at our location. For weddings, there are special check-in times - please contact us directly to receive this information on when guests can check in or look in your planning packet at the bedroom assignment check in page and FAQs!
