Should you choose to drive to the church and/or the barn, parking is also available. (Please note: There will not be shuttle service available to/from the church.)

Additional Hotels in the Area:

  • Westford Regency Inn and Conference Center - Westford, MA. This hotel is located directly across the street from the Marriott Residence Inn. Beautiful exterior, a little outdated on the inside, but perfectly fine and offers comparable rates to those on the room blocks.
  • Concords Colonial Inn - Concord, MA. A historic inn dating back to 1716! Charming, unique, and comfortable alternative to a traditional hotel updated with modern conveniences (a/c, wireless, etc.). Right in the middle of Concord town center -- a hybrid between our hometowns of New Canaan (CT) and Barrington (RI), with a rich history and lots to do!
