Family reunions. Anniversary celebrations. Milestone birthdays. A getaway with a group of friends. Bon voyage parties. There are so many reasons to celebrate life – particularly when life brings you to Wolfeboro and Pickering House Inn!

When you host a celebration at Pickering House, you have the option of reserving the entire Inn, grounds and staff just for you and your guests. Enjoy a scrumptious breakfast in the Pickering’s Kitchen; step out the door to explore the shops, docks and trails in downtown Wolfeboro; relax on our wraparound porch; savor spirits and snacks in the evening; and maybe even enjoy a private dinner at the Inn or in the Avery Room at PAVILION restaurant.

Subject to the number of guests you plan to host, we offer the AVERY ROOM for celebrations up to 24, and the BARN at Pickering House for celebrations of 25 – 75 (or more).

We look forward to working with you to create the perfect gathering with friends or family. Please provide the details and we will be pleased to provide additional information.


It is definitely not “business as usual” at Pickering House. When you want to add an extra dose of inspiration to your meeting or retreat, why not break out of the standard hotel conference room?

Our 10-room Inn provides the ideal settings for your select team to rejuvenate and focus. Our common rooms or outdoor spaces are perfect for smaller break-out sessions, while The Barn at Pickering House — a restored, 19th century property – is a wonderful venue for larger groups. The Avery Room (and its porch) at PAVILION offer exceptional dining and additional meeting space for smaller groups.

Book the entire Inn, grounds and Barn for a truly memorable retreat! (The Barn or Avery Room may be available for a single meeting, depending on the date and season.)

Let us know a bit more about your needs and we will send you a additional information.


Pickering House offers casually chic settings for all types of private events, from family reunions, birthday and anniversary celebrations, to executive retreats, meetings and more. Our lovingly restored 19th century barn is available for larger gatherings up to 150 people for sit-down events.
