Blithewold Mansion is a beautifully landscaped 33-acre estate situated on Bristol Harbor with sweeping views of Narragansett Bay. The forty-five-room mansion, trees, lawns, flowers and the sea combine to produce an aesthetic experience that is both exciting and refreshing.
For the wedding of your dreams, you may be envisioning a day where you say “I do” in a garden of colorful perennials, with rows and rows of white garden chairs and Narragansett Bay as your backdrop.

Then round out the evening with dinner and dancing in our beautiful white Century® tent under the stars.
The understated elegance of Blithewold makes it the perfect choice for all types of celebrations from a Fundraising Gala, to a Bridal Tea, to a traditional New England style clambake on our 10-acre Great Lawn.
