Proctor Mansion Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Wrentham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 July 2016

We attended a speaker presentation at the Proctor Mansion Inn. It was held in the ballroom, and delicious tea, scones, and chocolate-covered strawberries were served. This historic inn was warm and inviting, the service impressive, and the ambiance was unsurpassed. Much has been done to carefully and lovingly restore--not renovate, restore--this unique structure, some of which is ongoing. During the tour that followed the presentation, the owner, Brian, gave us an informative and very interesting tour of the inn. He is very knowledgeable and passionate, and this tour was one of the best (if not the best) I have ever been given. I truly felt the significance and importance of this delightful inn. Thank you, Brian and staff, for a memorable visit!

I cannot say enough great things about our experience with the Proctor Mansion Inn. I spent the night before the wedding with my daughters and my besties and our wedding day was spectacular! The mansion is so clean. The staff is accommodating, the owners are gracious and welcoming and Michelle the event coordinator is fantastic. Our family and friends are still gushing about the wedding!! Thank you for our magical day! :)

Our experience at the Proctor Mansion Inn was memorable in a very positive way, not only for the house and it's beauty, character and history, but also for the people. Deri, the innkeeper was friendly, informative and helpful. She gave us a warm welcome upon arrival. There were chef-made chocolate chip cookies and mini cinnamon buns waiting for us in our room. Brian Fitzgerald, the Inn's owner, is passionate about restoring the Proctor Mansion Inn (built in 1861) and spent an hour and a half with us touring the house and sharing information about its former residents and unique history. The house is filled with period pieces of furniture and artwork. The inn was a safe house for slaves traveling the Underground Railroad as evidenced by its red signal window and hidden safe room. If you are history buffs like we are, you will most assuredly appreciate the house tour and living amongst the many historical items in the house. It is true that the renovation is not yet complete but the amount that has already been thoughtfully done is truly impressive. Our stay was very comfortable with fine amenities including warm pastries, delicious home-cooked breakfasts and wifi. The Inn is almost entirely original in most every respect. They have added electricity, bathrooms and a sprinkler system but it has been done in a way that does not take away at all from the ambiance of the home. It is really neat Victorian mansion that was neglected for almost seventy years and brought back to life by caring and thoughtful people. They have had several movies filmed there so we aren't the only ones who think it is a special place. Brian and Deri recommended two enjoyable restaurants to us, both of which are located a short drive from the inn and and take reservations on Friday and Saturday evenings. We had delicious Italian food with prompt and friendly service at Cafe Assisi where the asparagus wraps and cannelloni fruitti di mare were particularly tasty. We enjoyed dinner in the very casual Eagle Brook Saloon where the prime rib and the fried clams were delicious. Our daughter will be attending college in the area and we plan to be frequent guests at the Proctor Mansion Inn over the next few years.

I have to say that I feel a little duped by this place. I was looking for something like the Morrill Mansion in Portland and was given to expect that from the video on the website. However, despite the fact that the owners have clearly spent a deal of money on the renovations to date, there is a long way to go and the video does not portray that. When you combine this with an expensive bill, it doesn't demonstrate great value. Deri the innkeeper is a lovely lady and tries hard but it doesn't feel like a $250 experience.
French toast for breakfast was not the best and we were offered waffles as an alternative, so it might be good to have those instead.

We are very sorry that this guest feels this way about the Proctor Mansion Inn. His comments about how the Mansion looks like the “Addams Family” are simply not true and are not fair to the unique historic elegance of the Proctor Mansion Inn. On the trip Advisor page you will find beautiful and accurate photos of the property provided by both other guests and the owners that depict the Inn in its’ true light. The Proctor Mansion Inn is a very historic property in New England and there are still some public spaces that are being restored especially on the upper floor. It was clearly a mistake for my innkeeper to give him a “behind the scenes tour” as he did not appreciate the nature of ongoing and careful historical restorative efforts. My Innkeeper reports “As they were standing at the bottom of the master staircase this guest commented that the house sort of reminded him of the TV show ‘The Addams Family’. The other three guests did not understand what he was saying and seemed embarrassed by his statements.”

The Morrill Mansion mentioned by this guest, although beautiful, has nowhere near the architectural detail of the Proctor Mansion Inn which includes original hand painted ceilings, ornate carved woodwork, frescoed walls, arching doorways, stained glass windows and original servant’s bells still hanging. If this guest had stated that he was not happy at the Proctor Mansion Inn we would have happily referred him to the more modern looking hotel in the near-by town.

Our Bedrooms are beautifully decorated, clean and have all the modern amenities. In addition the bedrooms and the entire house are decorated with interesting Victorian antiques.

The room rate at the Proctor Mansion Inn varies a little due to seasons and special events, but was not $250 as he has described in his comments. Our published room rates for a King room ranges from $199 on most days to $219 on weekends with special events. Queen room rates are lower.

Our staff serves fresh, beautifully prepared, hot breakfasts each morning. Upon check-in he and his companions were offered a choice of five breakfast items. Each chose cinnamon French toast. Shortly after it was served in the morning, our innkeeper asked how everything was. Three guests gave positive feedback; the fourth verbalized nothing but nodded in agreement to the other's comments. That guest happened to be the same one who said that the house reminded him of "The Addams Family". Had he been unhappy with his breakfast, for any reason, he could have verbalized that to our innkeeper, and a different breakfast would have then been immediately served.

It is the policy of Proctor Mansion Inn to make sure our guests are completely satisfied in every way, and we will continue to work very hard to do so, and are truly sorry this guest was not satisfied.

I took my wife to the porter mansion for tea on valentine's day. The service, food, music and company was fantastic. We got a tour and history of the mansion from the owner. We highly recommend going to an event or staying overnight. The hospitality was first class. The house has original decor throughout but has had electricity, plumbing and sprinklers added to meet today's code. I will be staying over with my wife for a romantic overnight get away.

I stayed at the Proctor for four nights last week. Wrentham is small, quiet and beautiful, especially with a dusting of snow, but there are excellent restaurants just across the common, and others are easy driving distance. I was there for research at the town library, but my sister and niece drove in for a lovely day and night together. I'd love to stay for a writing retreat, or just to de-stress from city life. Staff is easy-going and efficient and friendly, and the owner, Brian, is passionate and knowledgeable about the history of this unique Victorian, which he is restoring with loving care. Everything is authentic, but everything works for your comfort as a guest. If you go, wind your way up to the very top - a tiny enclosed "widow's walk" with views of the whole town.

We came out for a 30th High school reunion. It was just minutes away from the venue. We were welcomed with open arms and felt 'at home'. Built in the 1800's, this inn has so much character and historical ambiance. We lounged in one of the living rooms, went to the reunion, and then had a delicious home made breakfast the morning after. We highly recommend this inn if you love an antique, historical feel!
