Weddings

Welcome! We are so glad you are considering the Montague Retreat Center for your wedding. Our team looks forward to personalizing your experience in our extraordinary place!

At MRC, couples have the option to book wedding celebrations for an entire weekend or a single day.  We are a seasonal venue, hosting weddings from May through October. We book just one event per day, offering you and your guests exclusive use of any of our venue spaces.  

Our lush Ceremony Circle, nestled up to the apple orchard, sits beneath one of the oldest maple groves in Massachusetts, with a stunning view across the valley. Our gorgeous Stone Patio features a permanent 40’ x 50’ reception tent and a 75’ long stone bench retaining wall. Our elegant, yet rustic, Great Hall Barn features chestnut beams, bamboo floors, lots of glass and geothermal cooling. Our VIP suite, just off the Great Hall, offers a place for you and your wedding party to get ready and relax.

Beginning in 2022, our couples will work with our exclusive caterer, Wheelhouse. Offering farm fresh food made from scratch, Wheelhouse curates menus that honor both the origins of the food, and highlight the creativity of their chefs.  Nearly 100% of Wheelhouse produce and over 90% of their meat, dairy and grain are sourced from local farms!

Other Montague Retreat Center amenities include on-site accommodations, a VIP wedding suite, an onsite yurt, an ADA-compliant lift, and accessible restrooms. Two streams run through the property and the Robert Frost Trail is within walking distance. Coming attractions include the addition of 5 beautiful cabins on site, brand new for the 2022 event season.

We are currently accepting inquiries for the 2022 Wedding Season and have tour times available upon request.  2023 dates and packages will be available in the next several weeks.
