Experience the natural beauty and restorative reverence of Moran Estates, a lovingly tended family-owned New Hampshire property perfectly suited to celebration, contemplation, time-honored traditions and extraordinary events.

Located in the picturesque Monadnock Region, this stunning 60-acre rural retreat has been painstakingly maintained for generations, with a history of welcoming people to delight in its many charms. Moran Estates offers breathtaking mountain views, spectacular sunsets, starlit skies, running streams and meandering trails, handbuilt stone walls, thoughtfully crafted gardens and ponds, and remarkable gathering spaces designed to bring people together, away from it all.



A half-century ago, Bill and Judy Moran fell in love with the Alstead, New Hampshire, location that now encompasses Moran Estates, and purchased the property from the longtime local Pratt Family. Entranced by the land, and mindful of the environment, the Morans, alongside their two sons Trevor and Todd, spent decades enhancing and adorning the grounds together.

Meticulously planning, planting and pouring their respect and love into the landscape as a way to honor their union and enjoy their time together, Bill and Judy also invited extended family members and friends in the community to experience the magic of caring for the land, as a way of crafting lasting relationships with nature and with one another.

Creating a legacy of genuine appreciation for the beauty and wonder of their home, and the desire to share that reverent sense of place with others, the family warmly welcomes you to Moran Estates.



For decades, Moran Estates has been the unforgettable setting for countless love stories, providing a touchstone for families and friendships, and even a few first kisses. Honoring that tradition today as a timeless New Hampshire wedding venue, the Moran family invites you to add your chapter to the storybook and celebrate your union here in this heart-stirring natural setting steeped in history.

Start your future together with a nod to the past, amid the stone walls, wild meadows and English gardens found on our 60-acre grounds. Expansive skies, Stratton Mountain sunsets and sparkling streams provide a vivid backdrop to the event venue, with plenty of space for gathering together and getting away for the weekend in our onsite lodging, complete with a cozy Thoreau-inspired cabin.
