Why We Like This Place

  • You’ll feel “to the manor born” with a private wedding at this riverfront estate. From the gracious porte-cochère and river views, to the 18 acres of meticulous English gardens (designed as a park) and the 1902 classical revival mansion itself, it’s yours—all yours—to enjoy.
  • You can exchange vows al fresco in a leafy clearing, or indoors beneath ornate ceilings. The interior boasts gracious rooms with arched entries, inlaid wood floors, decorative cornices and the pièce de résistance, a spectacular grand staircase topped with a circular, stained-glass ceiling.
  • Sipping cocktails is more interesting in a historic wine cellar and pub or upstairs in the art gallery. In addition to these unique settings, there’s also a fireplace-warmed, enclosed porch for intimate gatherings and the fabulous Riverside Pavilion, where you can host a dinner and dancing gala for 300 with custom lighting and climate control.
