March 2021 – Bring on Spring and Space Flight!
Welcome to meteorologic Spring! While the “official” start of Spring begins on March 20th, that phrase does induce hope of warmer weather. We’re looking forward to hearing birds chirping in the early morning hours, seeing flowers push up through the ground, and trees begin to bud. Anticipation of going outside without a heavy jacket – or needing snow boots – is exciting!
Did you know?? An associate of Proctor Mansion Inn is currently in a competition for a seat on the first ever all civilian space flight!! Launch is scheduled for the Fall. Check out our twitter account, @proctormansion, for a video with co-owner and spokesperson Dawn Fitzgerald. View and retweet to all your friends!
February 2021 – Let it snow!!
If you’re like us, you LOVE to see the snow falling and the beautiful winter wonderland it produces. However, like a lot of you, we could do without the shoveling, snow-blowing and treacherous driving conditions, not to mention power outages! But, that’s New England for you!
Snow storms are a good excuse to take some time to just unplug and relax, even if it’s for only 1/2 hour…sip your favorite coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, while snuggled up in something cozy and warm; watch TV, read a book, or gaze at the falling snow. It can be mesmerizing.
We hope you and your loved ones weathered this recent storm without incident! We did, and are still open for business! And, with Valentine’s Day just a week away, why not consider spending a relaxing evening with us to celebrate? We have a special Valentine’s Day Package available just for you! Check out our Packages->Special Lodging Packages tab for details. We hope to see YOU soon!
January 2021 – HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
We made it through one of the worst years ever, despite the global coronavirus pandemic still affecting our lives and businesses. We all long to be able to hug family and friends again, travel, dine out, go to classes, shop, etc., without wearing face coverings and needing to quarantine or be tested. With 3 vaccines now available and beginning to be administered world-wide, there is hope on the horizon.
Our hope at Proctor Mansion Inn, as well as yours, is that life will return to somewhat normal fairly soon. We have seen some of you over the past 6 months, for overnight stays or small events, and for that we are truly grateful. Thank you for trusting us to take the utmost care of you. It’s our delight to help create wonderful memories while making you feel like family.
If you’re tired of being stuck at home, or simply need a break from the same old routine, why not consider an overnight stay with us? You’ll be glad you did!
December 2020 – Movie night is back!
We are very excited to announce our annual movie showings of “The Spirit of Christmas”! Due to covid regulations the event size will be smaller in order to accommodate social distancing. We can’t wait to entertain you again with the full-length version of the movie that was filmed primarily at this location back in February 2015. It’s become a Christmas classic, and one the family is sure to love. Movie Nights are: December 11th and December 18th, from 7pm – 9pm. Be sure to call and book your seat now!

October 1, 2020 – One of our favorites
Breakfast at the mansion is something we love to do! Whether making omelettes, frittatas, french toast, waffles, pancakes, scrambled eggs, or any other yummy dish, our staff delights to prepare fresh, delicious & eye-pleasing breakfasts for our guests! Now that Fall is here, pumpkin spice flavored items are a big hit. Close your eyes and imagine…pumpkin spice pancakes decorated with confectionery sugar and whip cream, ready for you to pour on real maple syrup! Or maybe you’re not into sweet things like that…for you, imagine a beautifully colored omelette with cheese and spinach (maybe some diced peppers too). Can’t you just see, smell and taste it?!? Oh yeah. I just made you hungry, and you want some now too, right? Come stay overnight with us and we’ll take care of that craving for you!
September 12, 2020 – Upcoming events
Mark your calendars now for our Autumn teas! October 24th and 25th, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Due to social distancing, we will be hosting a maximum of 25 people per tea. Call now to book your seat! Advance reservations are a must. Please notify us ahead of time of any dietary restrictions.
Coming in December – “Moving Night”! Yes, we will continue our tradition of showing the full length version of “The Spirit of Christmas”, which was mainly filmed right here at the Proctor Mansion nearly 6 years ago. It will be shown free of charge, in our L’Efant Ballroom, the scene of the “Christmas Eve dance” in the movie. Snacks will be provided (& served according to covid-19 guidelines), and a cash bar will be available. Movie dates yet to be determined, so stay tuned!
Thinking of a quick getaway? Book an overnight stay with us by the end of October and receive a $40 gift certificate towards your stay! Restrictions may apply.
September 1, 2020 – Autumn is in the air!
Despite all the travel and group size restrictions, we have had a successful summer! Several couples were married and had their receptions with us, there have been numerous small, private, events, and, we’ve had folks stay with us for a variety of reasons. Covid-19 may still be impacting our lives, but it can’t keep us from living them! Thank you to all who have come to stay or have an event with us!
Now that September is here, so is the return of cool, crisp, mornings (isn’t it great??), which foster thoughts of pumpkin flavored foods & beverages – yum! School is also set to resume – for most kids it is at least part-time online learning – we wish them and their teachers a safe & healthy school year. And let’s not forget…the New England Patriots!!! There’s a new captain in town at the helm – Cam Newton! He has astronomically enormous shoes to fill. While NO ONE could ever replace Tom Brady, the GOAT (& we already miss him tons), we wish Cam & the rest of the team the very best this season! Our expectations are high for another championship…let’s go Patriots!!! Once Gillette is open for fans, why not consider an overnight stay with us? We’re less than 4 miles from the stadium, and very convenient to get to. We hope to see YOU soon!
July 1, 2020 – Happy Summer!

A long weekend for many. Here at Proctor Mansion Inn we’re open to serve our guests as they travel to spend time with family or friends.
