Northeastern United States is where our great country started, so it’s no wonder most of our regal estates can be found in this region.
Thanks to generations who gave the finest care to their properties, vacation renters, honeymoon jet-set couples or other private interests can experience a world (and time period!) away from home, while still being at home per se.
Here are six beautiful Northeastern estates in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Maryland available for you and your group to immerse yourselves in and escape the hustle and bustle of crowded everyday spaces.

Kristin from Charleston, MA says,
“For our wedding we were able to accommodate our caterers with the catering kitchen and store our wine in the wine cellar. Our nieces and nephews thoroughly enjoyed the play-house in the back garden and the play area in the family room downstairs. The beach is a five minute drive away and home convenient to everything Truro, Wellfleet and Provincetown have to offer.”

The Foundry is a 19th Century building where originally fine varnishes were manufactured before it housed The Albra Metal Foundry. Their logo is still visible on the corner of the building at 9th Street and 43rd Avenue. By 1906, it was one of several steel foundries in the Long Island City area that catered to the needs of New York City’s riverfront manufacturers. If you are looking for something with personality and historical flair, we definitely recommend The Foundry.
This industrial New York event venue can accommodate 200 guests. The venue can accommodate 125 for a sit-down dinner indoor, 165 for sit-down dinner outside in the courtyard under the tent or 200 for cocktail receptions. Keep in mind the venue is open for your filming and photoshoots as well. Previous filming has been shot here for shows such as 30 Rock and HBO’s Girls most recently.
