MIT Conference Center
A magnificent estate located less than 12 miles from the city of Boston, Endicott House is no ordinary conference center. The award-winning facility is located in a secluded landscaped setting on 25 acres in the historic town of Dedham, MA. The stunning French Manor-style mansion features breathtaking vistas of the Blue Hills, alongside beautifully preserved and maintained gardens.
Built in 1934, artisans were brought in from Europe to construct the mansion, taking five years to complete it. Today, the Mansion defines the merging of old world refinement with modern amenities, and has become one of New England’s finest dedicated conference centers. The elegant property features 13 richly appointed Mansion guest rooms, and an additional 25 modern guest rooms located in the adjacent Brooks Center. Endicott House can accommodate small and mid-sized groups for executive retreats, corporate meetings, and training or educational sessions. The house is Ideal for special events, holiday celebrations, elegant corporate dinners, and even casual gatherings such as cookouts and summer picnics. Designed to make up to 125 guests eminently comfortable, there are also nine meeting rooms, four seminar rooms, an amphitheater-style lecture hall, a large foyer, as well as a deck and gazebo for informal outdoor discussions.
We offer fine food, exceptional service, and state-of-the-art meeting facilities in all-inclusive package plans. Our unique and beautiful conference center feels like a another world so far away, yet so close to Boston and her suburbs.
