Holiday Parties

The Codman Carriage House is located in Lincoln, Massachusetts. An Italian Garden and an English Cottage Garden are part of the grounds. Private events can be hosted at the Codman Carriage House, and the house also has tours available from June through October.

The Carriage House has been renovated especially for private parties and functions. With its rich wood paneling and rustic ambiance, it provides a casually elegant and affordable alternative to the Lyman Estate. 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, fountains, classical urns and statuary. An English country garden, originally designed and tended by Dorothy Codman, offers a beautiful but less formal setting for photographs.

Your rental gives you use of the Carriage House, gardens and grounds, and the flexibility to design your own event. Adorn tables with flowers, fine linens and romantic, votive candles for a formal wedding. Choose checkered tablecloths and set up a volleyball net for a summer barbecue. Treat your guests to cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres in the Italian Garden. Dance by candlelight late into the evening. The Carriage House comfortably accommodates 65-75 seated guests, with space for dancing. With a tent at the entrance, it accommodates up to 130 guests. Weddings at the Codman Carriage House and Gardens have been featured in Modern Bride, Wedding Bells, and Elegant Bride. The Estate is truly a hidden jewel, offering the pastoral charm of bygone times.

We invite you to schedule a visit to the Codman Carriage House and Gardens and a meeting with one of our event coordinators.

The Codman Carriage House, Lincoln — The Codman House, "The Grange," (ca. 1741) 1980. The Codman Carriage House and Gardens are located on the grounds of the Codman Estate in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Positioned on a knoll overlooking pleasure grounds, farmlands and woods, the mansion was built in 1740 by the politically prominent Russell family. In 1790, John Codman took control of the property with a goal to create a country estate fashioned in the English manner. He made extensive improvements to the original Georgian house and surrounding grounds. The property, known by the family as The Grange, became a powerful force in the lives of five generations of the Codman family. Each generation to live there left its mark, and the estate that was originally a country retreat gradually came to symbolize the family's distinguished past. The Codman Estate is now owned and maintained by Historic New England, formerly The Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities.
