Why We Like This Place

Rising like a castle at the edge of the water, this turn-of-the-century mansion, with its carved Gothic paneling and Baroque fireplaces, will make any bride feel like a princess.

Lush rolling lawns and panoramic views of both the Long Island Sound and Fishers Island set the stage for a romantic outdoor ceremony.

Extravagance made reasonable—once built for a cost nearly 10 times the money held by the biggest bank in Connecticut, this amazing place is now part of UConn and an absolute bargain for weddings and event rentals.
