5 PLUS GOLD STARS – The MIT Endicott House is a fabulous setting to host an overnight conference or luncheon.  The gorgeous ambiance, private setting, superior food quality, price point, and personalized customer service are the reasons my division at Lincoln Laboratory returns every year.  The management at the Endicott House “magically” make each year better than the year prior….I can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeve for next year….because the Scotch Tasting was pretty Awesome in the Gun Room at our recent event.

“Without question, the MIT Endicott House is our favorite spot for conferences! The staff is so welcoming, friendly, helpful, and they pay such close attention to detail, which you see throughout the property and the beautifully cared for grounds. Not only is the setting perfect for large or small retreats, but the menus prepared by Executive Chef Eddie Cerrato are always scrumptious and memorable. The MIT Endicott House is truly a gem, worthy of five gold stars!”
