Salve Regina University
While still a relatively young university by New England standards, Salve Regina University is one rich in history. Located in historic Newport, Rhode Island, this breathtaking 75-acre campus borders the famed Cliff Walk and has hosted the likes from the Dalai Lama to the Boston Celtics. Offering 20 meeting and event spaces and able to accommodate up to 400 attendees, the Office of Conferences and Events has planned and executed a fantastic array of large and small events over the years and assists with the logistical planning and scheduling to ensure each event is a success. Guests will be dazzled by the beauty of Newport, which began as a leading port in colonial America and transformed into a bustling hub of cultural activity and artistic life. Every day invites adventure in Newport, so plan your fall visit today to Salve Regina University.

Branford House at Avery Point
Imagine watching sailboats drifting by while relaxing on the sprawling lawn and bluestone patios of a majestic turn of the century mansion. That’s exactly what you will experience when you head to Groton, Connecticut and book your next event at Branford House at Avery Point. Modeled after the famous Newport mansions, you will be greeted by a regal entryway, grand ballroom, oak carved staircases and a stunning stone facade and find the perfect year-round venue for weddings and gala celebrations. The Grand ballroom, east and west wings can accommodate up to 200 guests for a plated dinner, but the property can utilize its lawn or patio tent for larger groups who will be treated to spectacular water and sunset views. Groton is located just an hour from Providence and two hours from Boston with plenty of hotel options within a 10-mile radius of the mansion. With plenty of local attractions nearby including Mystic Seaport, Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods and Rhode Island beaches, guests have a wide variety of activities available to them during their stay. Let the experienced staff at the stunning Branford House make your next event a special one.

Misselwood Events at Endicott College
Twenty miles north of Boston nestled along the scenic coast of the historic North Shore sits the storied Misselwood Estate at Endicott College. The friendly Misslewood Events team is ready to collaborate with you to create anything from the wedding of your dreams to a corporate retreat. The 235-acre campus offers woodlands, private beaches and pristine grounds that enhance any event. The interior spaces are equally impressive boasting over 40 state-of-the-art meeting and event spaces able to accommodate up to 736 people. Once inside the gates you will find no shortage of things to do. With three private beaches, guests can play sand volleyball, take a paddleboard excursion or enjoy a sunrise. The “Green Roof” is a beautiful rooftop deck that overlooks campus and is perfect for a sunset reception, while the self-guided walking tour of the historic homes on campus is a great way to immerse yourself in the area’s history. As they say at Misselwood Events, “Enjoy the view; we’ll take care of the rest.”

University of Maine
Our final fall stop through New England is spectacular Orono, Maine and the University of Maine. Located just 20 minutes from the Bangor International Airport, Maine is an ideal getaway for your next private event. For more than 30 years, the different venues and over 100 spaces on campus have played host to all types of events, including continuing education programs, business conferences, holiday parties, summer camps and adult and youth retreats. The University can host up to 1,500 overnight guests through a mix of residence halls, suite/apartment style living and nearby hotels, meaning almost no event is off limits.
