Only 17 miles north of downtown Philadelphia, on top of a hill sits The Highlands. This elegant, two-centuries-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 day. 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.


Weddings and celebrations take place in four rooms on the first floor connected by the grand hall. The total area is 2,441 square feet. There are three powder rooms on the first floor. A beautiful staircase at the end of the hall is perfect for the bride to descend for her wedding ceremony, or for the newly married couple to greet their guests. On the second floor, two rooms and a powder room are available for the bridal party only.


Two covered terraces facing the woods and the gardens may be used to entertain your guests. Weather permitting, your ceremony and cocktails may be held in the garden. The mansion can also accommodate a wedding ceremony and 120 for a sit down meal or 150 for a cocktail style reception. 


The rental of The Highlands is for five hours 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.
