Looking for the right location for your next corporate retreat in Boston? Slightly off the beaten path but still under an hour’s drive, the following venues allow you and your team to bypass the hustle and bustle of the city and set the stage for meetings with great outcomes.

Emerson Inn by the Sea

Historic North Shore hotel Emerson Inn by the Sea in Rockport, MA, is an escape-worthy setting for your company’s leaders to talk strategy, collaborate, and innovate.

You’ll find it easy to get used to Emerson’s main conference room, a refreshing space with an idyllic panorama of the ocean waves crashing on shore. Book a full day with catering or a multi-day retreat with lodging at the Emerson Inn, dressed in Victorian charm.

Essex Woods Meeting & Retreat Center

Reflection comes naturally at Essex Woods, a meeting and retreat center where you’ll find inspiration just about everywhere you look.

Essex Woods is nestled away in miles of forest, characterized by trickling creeks and pathways carved through stunning gardens. Indoors, the center’s cabin digs feature floor-to-ceiling windows to let the light in, traditional table and chair conference spaces, and more casual breakout lounges with couches, plush arm chairs, and coffee tables.

Warren Conference Center and Inn

Warren Conference Center and Inn’s 100-acre property adjacent to the Ashland Reservoir provides the ideal backdrop for deep thinking, so much so that you won’t believe it’s only 25 miles west of Boston!

The conference center’s three main buildings offer flexible meeting accommodations with the opportunity for board room, classroom, theater-style, and U-shape setups in 12 dedicated spaces. End a day of productive discussion flitting across the lake by oar, walking the 3.5-mile perimeter trail, or warming up around the campfire.
