A very special wedding weekend
We had an amazing wedding weekend at Friendly Crossways. The setting is absolutely stunning. The forest, fields, and spacious grounds are beautiful. The inn is unique, charming, and elegant. We can’t ... Read more stress enough how meaningful and special it was to have so much time and space to host our family and close friends at the inn. Our actual wedding was spectacular but we were most pleasantly surprised by the quieter moments of playing cards late in the evening, toasting marshmallows, and just talking and building new relationships across our families. You can get married just about anywhere but at Friendly Crossways you’re given the chance to live out your values of putting relationships first. Beyond just the format of having this wonderful space for the whole weekend, the service, attention, and care that Mary Helan, Keith, and their staff put into their weddings is professional and personal. They are authentic, helpful, laidback while still attentive, and creative. Mary Helan’s pies and the food from their catering company was the best food I’ve ever had from a wedding caterer and the process of deciding on everything was seamless. Their recommended tent and rental company is also amazing and easy to work with. We really have no complaints, big or small. We’d do it all over again the same way in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable! (Photos are by Lauren Page Wadsworth Photography)

The PERFECT rustic DIY venue in Massachusetts
I hardly know what to say - Friendly Crossways was the PERFECT venue for our rustic wedding this past October. Both Mary Helan and Lisa were exceptional throughout the planning process, helping me to ... Read more decide, plan, navigate, and just calm down! It was so easy having most of our vendors in the same place. We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, catering, and lodging all there, and even held 2 breakfasts, a lunch, and lawn games there too! It was a dream come true to have all of our friends and family staying in the same house for a whole weekend, and we didn't have to worry about transportation to and from all of the events! The property is gorgeous, the farm house feels like home, and the people are so helpful and caring. Mary Helan is a wonderful chef, and the food was fresh from her garden and phenomenally prepared. We went back and forth so many times with the catering menu, but she was only helpful and understanding. My husband kept saying that he can't wait to have his next wedding there haha! As we were leaving, we were trying to come up with a reason to have all of our family and friends back there for a weekend. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VENUE!!!!! Note: If you are looking for a super fancy, everything done for you place, this isn't it. It is very rustic and DIY, which is what we were looking for, so if that's your style, look no further!

Amazing Experience at Friendly Crossways
Friendly Crossways was the first venue we looked at and after researching several before going to see the property, we knew from the moment we stepped foot on the property we were sold. Laid back yet ... Read more totally professional, we had a casual ceremony and reception of about 125 people over a weekend celebration. The rental of the property was a third of what others were asking and provided a place to stay, eat, and celebrate with us for the entire weekend. The staff made us feel at home and we would recommend this location for anyone looking for something outdoors, rustic and wonderful.
