Our flexible indoor and outdoor options coupled with our year-round top-notch planning faculty will create the perfect oasis for your group’s summer recreation day in Boston.

Make the Most of the Weather

Of course, the main point of a summer recreation day in Boston is to enjoy the warm weather while we have it. At MIT’s Endicott House, we have 25 acres of beautifully-landscaped gardens and grounds, as well as a private pond, for your group to explore and enjoy via a crisscrossing network of walking trails. To fully take advantage of the outdoors at our venue, there are a number of shade and cooling options available like tents, patios, and a full menu of available refreshments. We also have lawn games such as cornhole, giant Jenga, bocce ball, and more.

As a corporate event venue, we are able to accommodate the full-range of casual to buttoned-up events. Whether you’re going for a breezy, games-filled afternoon or a more structured team-building exercise, we have the facilities and the know-how to expertly host anything.

High-Quality Catering to Enhance the Summer Spirit

The culinary staff at MIT’s Endicott House prides itself on taking full advantage of the seasonality of food by cultivating a year-round garden, and highlighting those fresh ingredients in our offerings menu. When you work with our award-winning chefs, they’ll craft for you a menu that both meets your needs and showcases their creativity and talent. We can accommodate any dietary restriction or preference. If you’re interested, we even host a Garden Luncheon event which includes a grounds tour, a culinary demonstration with foods grown on the property, and a fascinating history talk on the property.
