About Us

Enveloped by lavish gardens and woodlands, the Glen Manor House is a historic estate situated in Portsmouth, Rhode Island that is ideal for hosting weddings. This French-style chateau graces the banks of the Sakonnet River and its natural vistas create a magical ambiance. It has provided the backdrop for an array of films and photoshoots, in addition to being a storybook venue for nuptials.

Facilities and Capacity

Soirees held at the Glen Manor House are given a romantic setting that seems straight out of a novel. The mansion possesses a dining room, ballroom, terrace, and library where couples can celebrate their commitment, in addition to the grounds, weather permitting. There are multiple dressing rooms for the wedding party’s comfort. The entire estate is decorated in a classic, French style, with marble fireplaces and understated molding. Between May and October, the estate can host up 200 individuals. November through April, the capacity varies, and the location is closed in January.

Services Offered

The Glen Manor House can provide gold Chiavari chairs, white garden chairs, and tables. They do not offer catering, but have a list of suggestions. Vendors are given three hours before the wedding to set up. The expert staff at the estate can help you with numerous details and offers recommendations to make the planning process easier.

History

Completed in 1923 by the Taylor family on the former Glen Farm, this estate served as a vacation home for the family. They hired the famed John Russel Pope, who designed the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC, as the manor’s architect. He based the building off the French Petit Trianon at Versailles. In 1959 the family sold the estate and its 43 acres to the Sisters of the Sacred Heart, who ran it as a school until 1972. It was finally taken over by the Portsmouth Historical Society, who formed a group that now runs it for its current event purposes.

On our wedding day Glen Manor was beyond stunning and it felt perfect for our 30 person event. The House felt warm, inviting, intimate, and in many ways it felt like we were hosting a wedding at our home (one can dream!) because Katie made us and our guest... Read more
