Rent the Governor John Langdon House Gardens

Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Open June Through October

Governor John Langdon House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is one of the finest Georgian residences in the country. An expansive lawn behind the house is shaded by trees and enclosed by hedges and a perennial flower border. A 100-foot rose and grape arbor leads to a small pavilion and secluded garden. Host your wedding or special event in this idyllic outdoor setting, which comfortably accommodates a tent with seating for 150 guests and space for dancing.

John Langdon rose from modest origins to become a merchant, shipbuilder, Revolutionary leader, signer of the United States Constitution, and three-term governor of New Hampshire. The house he built for his family expresses his status as Portsmouth’s leading citizen.

We only book one wedding per weekend.
