Nestled in a cozy corner of downtown Cary, in a central location to Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill's Triangle area in North Carolina, The Matthews House offers a charming events venue with Southern elegance and urban versatility.

We held a graduation party at Matthews House in 2017 and, as a host, the whole experience of planning and executing the whole event was fantastic... All the guests had a great time and were amazed at this hidden gem in heart of Cary downtown."
—Sunil J., Google Review

From a handful of participants to 160 guests, we invite you to host a cocktail hour in the Greek Revival mansion, put a band on the porch and have a birthday party with lawn games by the fountain, throw a plated dinner banquet in the Grand Ballroom, or dance under the string lights covering the patio.

The staff at The Matthews House went above and beyond my greatest expectations."
