RENTAL INFORMATION

Only 17 miles north of downtown Philadelphia, on top of a hill sits The Highlands. This elegant, 213 years-old Georgian style mansion is surrounded by 44 acres of rolling hills and beautifully landscaped gardens. The Highlands offers a unique setting for your special celebration. Completed in 1796, the mansion features fifteen foot ceilings and bright spacious rooms in addition to a 2 acre formal garden and the ambiance of the surrounding estate.

 

Our wedding, milestone celebration and corporate event site consists of four rooms on the first floor connected by the grand hallway. The total area is 2,441 square feet.  A beautiful staircase at the end of the hall is the perfect entrance for hosts to greet their guests. There are three powder rooms on the first floor. We have a handicap accessible ramp that leads into the vernada. On the second floor, two rooms are available for bridal parties or nursing moms. The mansion can accommodate 120 guests for a sit down formal meal or 150 for a cocktail style reception. 

 

Two covered terraces facing the woods and gardens may be used to entertain your guests outside as well. Weather permitting, your ceremony, cocktail hour or lawn games may be held in the gardens. Tenting is also an option on the north lawn adjoining the veranda porch.

Event rentals of The Highlands may take place any day of the week and we only have one event a day. Chairs and tables are available at a no additional charge. There is parking for 70 cars but valet parking is recommended for over one hundred people. This beautiful mansion could be the place of your dreams.
