January 1, 2020 – Happy New Year!!

A Message from the Proctor Mansion Staff…

As the new year is upon us, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on this past year and genuinely thank all of our guests. Thank you all for your business, thank you all for your kind reviews, thank you all for returning and thank you all for your support as we strive to upkeep the great history and uniqueness of this home.
The color for 2020 is “classic blue” and is described by Pantone as “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection.”
2020 is the start of a new journey and we are so thankful that you are alongside us to continue to experience special moments with us, and we look forward to making new connections in the year ahead.
We have enjoyed serving you and hope to see you again soon!

December 1, 2019 – It’s the Holidays!!

Phew! So much has happened here that we never got to post a November blog (we hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving)!  We’ve been very busy decorating the house for Christmas season, and it does look wonderful. Come check it out for yourself!
Now that it’s the middle of December we decided to pause from our busy schedule to give an update of the latest news:

Our first free movie showing of “The Spirit of Christmas” was a huge success!  A special thank you to Steve Miller, aka “Charles”, who blessed us with his presence, as well as his parents’.  Our next free movie night is THIS FRIDAY, December 20th!  Doors open at 7 pm – we hope to see you here!

Our Holiday High Tea was also a huge success!  Attendees were treated to carols played by guitar as well as joined in some caroling themselves.  Our menu featured executive Chef Paul’s delicious goodies, and as always, he did not disappoint.  Owner Brian Fitzgerald gave everyone a tour of the house to round out the day.

The Patriots are in town the next two weekends – playoff implications for both games – and we have rooms available for an overnight stay!  If you’re fortunate enough to have tickets, come stay with us!  We’re located just 3.5 miles away from Gillette.  GO PATRIOTS!!!!

October 1, 2019 – Restoration efforts continue, fundraising event upcoming 

“Then and Now” – Celebrating 10 years of the mansion’s renewed life in Wrentham as an integral part of the community!
Saturday, November 2, 2019
7:00 pm ~ $75.00 per person         Attire is cocktail casual

Proprietor, Brian Fitzgerald states: 
“Preserving the history of this wonderful property has been of utmost importance. Restoration efforts to date have been done in the most original and careful way possible. Certain needed restoration efforts are, however, out of scope of normal business operations and yet are still very important to the property and community for continued historic preservation. Funds raised throughout this fundraising campaign will go directly towards the many ongoing restoration projects to keep this rich history alive.”
We hope you will join us for this exciting event!

 

September 1, 2019 – Autumn is in the Air!

What do you think about when September arrives? Here in New England most of us think about cool nights, back to school, leaves falling and turning colors, fresh apple cider & apple picking, many pumpkin flavored treats, hiking/biking, harvest celebrations, trick-or-treating with the young ones, gathering with families, and football games. Some may actually dread this time of year because colder Winter weather is just around the corner…and we never know what mother nature will bring us!
At this time of year at Proctor Mansion Inn, we are THANKFUL. We’re thankful for our old and new guests who have come for overnight stays, house rentals, and hosting memorable celebrations. We’re thankful to be able to share our historic 1861 Victorian home with the public, and thankful that we have the passion and determination to continue restoring its beauty and unique architecture. We also look forward to the continued relationships that we have with Dean College, Wheaton College, and Stonehill College, as students and families head back to school as well as other businesses in the area.
We are fortunate to be centrally located and have so many amazing attractions nearby such as state forest hiking paths, shopping malls (Wrentham Premium Outlets, Patriot Place, Mansfield Crossing), Gillette Stadium, the Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center/Orpheum Theater, and many wonderful farms in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
Think of us for your next trip to New England! Our location and service will pleasantly surprise you.

August 1, 2019 –  It’s F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L  season again!!!!!!!!!!
So glad Tom Brady signed on for another 3 seasons!! More Super Bowls are in our future!  In case you didn’t know we are only 3.5 miles from Gillette Stadium. We have a new special Tailgating Package to kick off the 2019 season. Pack your bags – and cooler –  for a weekend getaway and come stay with us. Be sure to wear your Patriots shirt to our home cooked breakfast in the a.m., and fill us in on your thoughts about the game!!

July 1, 2019 – START YOUR VACATION WITH US!
Our Assistant Innkeeper Martha shares her thoughts on Summer:
Enjoy a relaxing getaway at the Proctor Mansion Inn. We are set in the center of a picturesque New England town half way between Boston and Providence.  Many local attractions add to our label as a “destination.”
During the summer months I like to leave the mansion after work and go to the Cape. It’s just an hour away and the beaches are wonderful! My favorite is Mayflower Beach in Dennis, where during low tide you can enjoy searching for shells, building sandcastles, and/or even looking for hermit crabs. After a long day at the beach it’s an easy ride back to the Inn. We have wonderful restaurants nearby so you can end the day with a nice dinner.

If you enjoy the Rhode Island beaches better…look up the Admiral Fitzroy Inn, our sister property, located right in the heart of Newport on Thames Street.  It’s only one block from Newport Harbor and 1/2 mile to First Beach.
Why not make plans now and enjoy a summer weekend with us, and breeze off to the Cape or Newport for the day and enjoy the weather we have waited for all winter? Let me know where you visited and share your tips with us!

Stay tuned for our upcoming project…a capital campaign for our Carriage House renovation.
