Important information about touring Orchard House ...

  • The House is shown by guided tour only
  • Individuals or small groups/families (less than 10 persons) do not need to make reservations for guided tours
  • Tickets for the day's tours go on sale at opening and are sold on a "first come" basis (i.e., tickets cannot be sold in advance of the day you wish to tour)
  • Groups of 10 or more must make advance reservations; a $50.00 deposit is also required and applied to the total cost of the tour or refunded if notice of cancellation is received within 48 hours of your tour.  To make a reservation, please phone 978.369.4118 x106 on weekdays.
  • Since town fire laws dictate the number of persons we can accommodate at any given time, and reserved groups may also occasionally limit public access, there could be a slight wait for the next available tour when you visit; we do our best to serve all visitors on a timely basis and offer many activities to occupy any wait time

Special Programs are also available throughout the year at Orchard House.
