Friendly Crossways is a family owned retreat center conveniently located near the intersection of Rte. 2 and Rte. 495 in the town of Harvard, only 30 miles northwest of Boston. We’re in a peaceful, rural location with easy access to hiking, biking, skiing and canoeing. Church leaders, health organizations, elementary and high schools, big bands, and other environmental, educational and nonprofit companies are just some of the groups who have benefited from our services, facilities and reasonable rates. We’re also a Boston wedding venue, with a history of hosting destination weddings that goes back to the start of Friendly Crossways in 1947!
