  • Unfortunately, we had a bad time attempting to plan a wedding reception here (it sounds like some other folks have had problems with weddings here as well). After touring the place twice, and discussing the price in person, we emailed to book the venue. Only then were we told very rudely that we would have to pay to rent the venue for three additional set up and break down hours. All other venues we had contacted included those hours in the price, so I was quite taken aback, especially since we had confirmed the price in person. Thankfully, after reading the other bad review and being put off by the price increase we were saved from a bad reception and decided to rent another venue. The house and grounds do appear like they're worth checking out as a tourist, but the garden was out of season and the house was mostly closed when we looked at it, so I'm not sure what it's like in the summer.
  • I attended a beautiful autumn wedding at the Moffatt-Ladd House & Garden.
  • One of the best historic house museums in the country. Fantastic collect of period furniture, ceramics, artwork, and personal items. Home of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, William Whipple. Beautiful garden in the back. Great interpretation of colonial history and one family's impact on state and national events and history. A must visit when in Portsmouth.
  • Fantastic tour. Such a great place to visit and experience some local History.
  • A Terrible Wedding Venue The two women who run the house are miserable creatures. If you have an issue with people using your space for weddings, why open yourself up to the trouble? The entire experience was agonizing, from getting yelled at for putting a piece of furniture on the grass to cleaning up all the tiny pieces of cake on the dirt left by the front road. Each interaction with Marsha and Barbara was more rude than the last. They have no class, tact, or respect for any other human being. Do not waste your time, money, or energy at this place.
