About

The Baldwin School, formerly the Historic Bryn Mawr Hotel is the perfect location for your special event. The five-story, chateau-style structure oversees 22 private landscaped acres in a distinguished Main Line location, just nine miles west of Philadelphia. Our beautiful grounds and indoor spaces are the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony or reception, bar, bat or bnai mitzvah, corporate function, family reunion or other special event.

Your guests will be welcomed to a warm period style of deeply set windows, several wood burning fireplaces and a sweeping covered veranda. With the beautiful landscaping and the inside charm of Baldwin, couples have many photo opportunities before their guests even arrive. Baldwin, with its cascading grand staircase, provides a spectacular grand entrance. Since we host only one event at a time, we offer two air conditioned dining rooms to choose from. We can host a smaller gathering of up to 120 guests or something more elaborate where as many as 300 guests may enjoy seated dining and dancing in one room. Overall capacity is up to 700 for a cocktail reception.

Having worked in the industry for almost 5 years, I have been to many venues all over the Philadelphia area. The Baldwin School rivals every venue I've seen in their professionalism, value, accommodations, beauty, and charm.

Jane Darnell works there as the event coordinator. WOW! She went above and beyond! She and her staff were so accommodating, helping us through the process, making sure we had all the equipment we needed and working with all the other event professionals without me having to be involved. She was incredible with the set up for the wedding and the day-of. She was there from start to finish, making sure we had everything we needed! Amazing!

The school itself is absolutely gorgeous. I had 250 guests in the main ballroom/dining room and the cocktail hour in the main hall and the room "Assembly." My guests loved it. I got so many compliments about the whole place. They have beautiful furniture placed throughout so the guests can lounge and enjoy. They also have a huge porch on the back (which we were so sad we couldn't use for cocktail hour due to weather reasons.) So many options! You can do so much with the space. The wood throughout is so classic.

The value for the school is INCREDIBLE!! Their pricing is so reasonable. I feel like I found a rare gem. They were so excellent to work with and all of my guests were blown away by the space. I loved having my wedding there. They just started doing events for the public. If you're lucky enough that your date is available - Do NOT hesitate! Book this venue!!
I'm so happy I found them for my day.

The Baldwin School was a beautiful venue for my daughter's wedding. We had 185 guests. Hardwood floors, leaded glass floor to ceiling windows, grand staircase, fireplaces, large porches with overhangs perfect for cocktail hour rain or shine. Donna and her team worked very hard to ensure that every detail was perfect. Each and every request was honored. The staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating throughout the year as we asked to see the rooms during our planning stages.

Baldwin is, truly, a remarkable place. As soon as my (now) husband and I walked into the space with our families, we we were overwhelmed by awe and beauty. The architecture, outdoor grounds, staff, and location are absolutely perfect. Guests stayed in Philly and we easily shuttled them to the ceremony and reception site.

It was the most magical and romantic wedding I could have ever asked for. Thank you Baldwin staff and Conner Catering. You helped make our day so beautiful and perfect.
