Southeastern Connecticut has so much to do and is often forgotten. A mere 2 hours from New York, a quick train ride from New Haven or a short jaunt from the center of Connecticut coming to this part of the CT Shoreline is a must. We suggest making Old Lyme your temporary home as its a perfectly positioned between Essex, a quick jump over the bridge into the heart of Old Saybrook and short ride to Mystic. Our Neighbors, Holly and Barry are the owners of The Ludington House a stunning mansion that dates back to 1893 and serves as the entrance into the culturally rich center of Old Lyme. This is the best place to drop your suitcase and before you start your weekend of relaxation or get ready for the biggest party of your life. Beginning its new life as an Airbnb this elegant home has multiple rooms which are perfect for a weekend getaway but is better suited to hosting luxurious weddings on their beautiful lawn, exquisite dinner parties from their dining room which overlooks the deck that is a perfect spot for your cocktail hour.
No wonder this was chosen as the focus for the Hallmark Movie “Christmas at Pemberly Manor.” As you move through the colonial revivalist style home its grandiose halls filled with victorian style trimmings, you notice along with the spacious entry way and multiple sitting areas for your guests to gather before they make their way to the spacious dining area. Traveling further you reach the magnificent “Grand Stairwell” paired with its beautiful picture window and chandelier which is a photographers dream. It’s as if it was created for the sole purpose of brides making unforgettable entrances. Entering the bridal suite you and your bridesmaid will make memories popping bottles of champaign in the “Morning Rooms” sitting area. A spacious powder room complete with sunken tub has plenty of room for bridal attendees to get ready and take pictures. The grooms bathroom is spacious surrounded with dark wood and marble, circling a glass surrounded shower stall. Just getting ready for your big day will something to remember.
The grounds are beautiful at all times of the year and the green that lays just off the deck is spacious yet intimate; perfect for beautiful ceremonies and can quickly change into a the perfect spot for a fun picturesque reception. The sunset through the trees is an experience and perfect for you to capture golden hour candids of you and your partner as your guests enjoy cocktail hour. If you are looking to get away from the center of the party the large deck has many areas that will allow you to sneak away for a quieter conversation.
The Ludington house has so many more features like a billiard room upstairs complete with a bar or the expansive kitchen that is perfect for your closest family and friends to enjoy mimosas and brunch the day after your wedding.
