Located in beautiful Lincoln, Massachusetts the country estate offers a well maintained rustic setting just minutes from Route 95 and Boston. The Carriage House has been renovated especially for private events. With its rich wood paneling and rustic ambiance, it provides a casually elegant and affordable option for your special day. A highlight of the landscape is the Italian Garden. This surprisingly formal secret garden features a marble-columned pergola covered with flowering vines, and is a perfect location for wedding ceremonies. Guests sit alongside a reflecting pool surrounded by flowers, classical urns, and statuary. An English country garden, originally designed and tended by Dorothy Codman, offers a beautiful but less formal setting for photographs. Read less

We got married mid-July 2015 at the Codman and have nothing but praise!

The location is beautiful - we did our ceremony in the Italian Garden, which is gorgeous. The reception was in the carriage house and under a tent just outside - it was the perfect size for the ~75 people we had.

The grounds are great - there are a ton of places to take really pretty pictures and the lawn is perfect for games!

Bill is phenomonal - he's the reason we booked the venue. He is super communicative and responsive. Any questions we has, he was able to help with. Also, because there are only a few caterer's that you can use with the venue, the logistics between the two were very smooth.

Erin and I were recently married at Codman. The grounds (Italian garden, meadow, and carriage house) are just beautiful. We wanted a laid back wedding with as much of the day outdoors as was possible. Codman fit the bill! We had the ceremony in the Italian garden, cocktails/lawn games in the meadow, dinner in the tent, and dancing in the carriage house. The flow of the day was great. We can't recommend this place strongly enough!

The Codman Estate was one of the most reasonably priced venues we looked at, and was absolutely gorgeous. Many of our guests remarked on how beautiful the Italian Garden was for the ceremony, and the grounds and carriage house were great for the reception. The staff is extremely easy to work with, and made the entire process run smoothly.

I held my wedding at Codman and couldn't have be more excited! The outdoor and indoor spaces offer a lot of flexibility and we loved the idea of having the entire property to enjoy. The ceremony was in the Italian garden with cocktails and games in the meadow. Dinner and dancing moved to the tent and carriage house. Bill at Codman was great to work with. Very responsive to all of my questions! We really enjoyed our country casual day!!!

I couldn't be happier with my wedding location. Not only are the grounds absolutely beautiful, but the staff working there are very helpful. Bill was great-- he answered questions at all times of day, especially closer to the wedding when I became much needier. He was as flexible as he could be to accommodate me coming in from out of town, and it was such a great experience.

At the price point, you can't beat the Codman Estate. The only thing that I would recommend to brides considering renting the Codman is that if you're on a budget, consider that over a certain number of guests will require you to have a tent-- an expense I grossly underestimated. While there are ways to overcome this (tent shares, low guest count, etc.), it was something that surprised me.

Working with Bill at Codman was a pleasure. Just after we started planning our wedding, Bill took over in the role -- and quickly proved to be highly competent, responsive, friendly, and helpful. We planned the wedding remotely from California, and Bill made it easy to do so -- he was quick to respond to emails, had suggestions on how to trouble-shoot issues that came up, and easily worked with our other vendors so we didn't have to stress the week-of. My husband and I were hugely impressed with him and think he will be a huge asset to Codman going forward, given his long history in event management.

Codman was a dream for us as well. I grew up 5 minutes down the road, so I had known for a long time that I wanted to get married in the Italian Garden. Unfortunately, we ended up with a very rare late-May rainy day (in fact, it was 50 degrees and pouring!) but I actually think that was a blessing in disguise -- all of our guests commented on how beautiful and intimate our ceremony was in the Carriage House. I can't imagine now having done it any other way. We were able to fit our 120 guests, chamber group, and 10-person wedding party in the Carriage House, which the caterers quickly cleared for cocktail hour, and then we moved to the adjacent tent for dinner.

The venue is absolutely amazing, rain or shine, and I was so greatful to have Bill as an ally throughout planning and the actual wedding.

I was just married at Codman. The grounds are beautiful! The Italian garden was a perfect location for our ceremony. The carriage house fit our small wedding perfectly. We didn't have a tent but I understand you can if you like. We were just in the carriage house. It was enough room for us. I liked being able to use the entire property. We did the ceremony in the Italian garden with cocktails in the meadow and dinner in the carriage house. Overall a great spot and I highly recommend!
