The Essex Room has been hosting memorable events on the North Shore for over 40 years

Features quintessential coastal New England location and ambiance, with exquisite views every season of the year, The Essex Room is the ideal venue for weddings, functions, and more.

The Essex Room hosts only one event at a time, so we’re able to provide unparalleled attention to detail and impeccable service.

We have multiple packages available for ease of planning, and we offer custom exquisite menus with numerous course options. Our Steamship Lounge is reminiscent of the early days of travel and exploration.

If you’re considering The Essex Room for your wedding, we provide a personal event coordinator and a “mother of the bride” the day of the wedding. We also have a luxurious Bridal Suite, expansive grounds for outdoor cocktails, and a beautiful seasonal garden, the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.

The Essex Room can seat 250 comfortably and boasts a large dance floor. We are family owned and operated, and there’s always plenty of free parking.

Essex is conveniently located 30 minutes north of Boston. Read less

If you want great value plus really top-notch staff and extraordinary food, look no further than the Essex Room. We had a great experience and our guests are still raving about everything, and will for a very long time. We are thrilled we made this choice, and could not recommend the Essex Room with greater enthusiasm. Thank you for helping to put our wedding "over the top." We love you.

Living in Texas and planning a New England wedding can be a bit of a challenge. I sent inquiries to multiple venues, all beautiful, We selected The Essex Room after a conversation with Maureen Woodman followed by a tour of the venue and the outside area. Maureen was the only person who actually called me within an hour (on a a Sunday, no less) to talk about my vision for the wedding. We first met with Faye Broderick which reinforced that we selected the right venue as I knew we were in great hands for making sure every detail was covered. In addition to Maureen and Faye, Donna Roy, Lauren Muise, Norman Lemcke and Chef Ned and the rest of the staff are INCREDIBLE. Donna was extremely responsive to my numerous e-mails and they were easy to work with to schedule to tours of the venue for a variety of vendors (florists, photographer, our officiant, etc.) for times that I was in Massachusetts. Donna and Lauren checked & double-checked all the details and coordinated / executed everything professionally and perfectly on our wedding day. They set everything up just the way we wanted with the centerpieces we brought in, didn't have to worry about anything. Norman is fun and personable and great with postings and updates on social media and a willing dog handler if you want to include your furry friend in your wedding ceremony. (Bear, our 135 lb. Mastiff, has few manners and drools on everybody so he did not participate in the ceremony, to my and Norman's dismay! ;-) This was the right decision by my husband, btw!) The ceremony on the manicured lawn was lovely, the bar service for cocktail hour and reception was terrific & the food was amazing. Our guests rave about every aspect: from apple cider donuts pre-ceremony to passed hor d'oeuvres & cheeses to clam chowder & mouth-watering filet / chicken / risotto served for the main course. Chef Ned is very talented in the kitchen and our guests LOVED talking to him about the cheeses and other menu items. Highest recommendation!

My husband and I cannot praise The Essex Room enough! We planned our wedding in 90 days - 90. Days. And we could NOT have done it without the amazing team at The Essex Room.
First of all, the food is made in house and is DELICIOUS (we are still hearing compliments from our guests 4 months later). Chef Ned accommodated all of our guests with dietary restrictions AND accommodated our desire for an off-beat dessert (ice cream sandwiches with homemade cookies... they were so so good!)
Secondly, they were incredibly flexible with our meager budget. Some venues didn't even want to meet with us because of our budget, but The Essex Room made us feel valued and helped us have the wedding of our dreams without overspending!
They also provided top-quality referrals for vendors, and honestly they just handled every single detail so we didn't have to! They went above and beyond with decorations - hand-crafted pinwheels and tassels in our colors, outdoor decor for our cocktail hour, etc. Our day went perfectly and we didn't need to stress about a single thing. We feel so blessed to have found The Essex Room - visit once and you'll feel the same way.

Thanks Magen! We had such a great time working with you. Thank you for making us part of this very personal and special day. Enjoy your holiday as man and wife. Please send our best to your parents (Glo and Ed) and wish them a happy holiday from us. P.S. Tell Glo that Norman still talks about how much fun he had with her.

My husband and LOVED the Essex Room when we visited, not because they gave us food and lemonade, but because of the personal attention we received throughout our planning process and day of the wedding. We worked with most of the staff there: Lauren, Donna, Faye, Maureen, Norman, even Chef Ned and they were all fantastic. They even accommodated a request we made 5 days before the wedding. Everyone there had an eye for details, especially Lauren and Donna, who creatively used our decorations in a way I didn't even think of. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour outside and since the weather cooperated we had the most beautiful background, though the outside area is small, photographers know how to work the angles to make the parking lot disappear. From the food to service, everything was perfect, and our guests kept raving about the food! We can't thank the Essex Room enough for hosting our perfect day!

Donna Roy and her staff were incredible. I asked for a few changed like moving of a swing and and archway and they did it without any questions asked. At one point during the evening my bustle fell down and a staff member was there to get it secured in place. There was never a time I felt like I couldn't call with a question or concern. I loved working with the Essex Room. They brought a family feel to our weeding that we wouldn't have been able to get anywhere else!

I can't say enough good things about the people who work at the Essex Room. Donna, Norman, Lauren, Chef Ned, and others just made sure the day went perfectly. Weather was a major concern for me, and Donna went out of her way to help me feel comfortable if we had to do either option. She went out of her way to help me with various small details to plan for both, and was so great about being organized. The day went smoothly thanks to the team wrangling my friends and family, and EVERYONE is raving about the food - Chef Ned really out did himself! Everyone who worked there wants the day to feel personal to you, and was flexible about making that happen. The venue itself is BEAUTIFUL, and we got some great pictures. Overall, I am SO happy I went with the Essex Room, and am looking forward to booking another event there in the future!
