Why We Like This Place

  • You have your own private estate for a day. The stately 1793 mansion and its 37 acres of lawns, gardens, and historic greenhouses is exclusively yours during your wedding, private party or corporate event.
  • Use of indoor and outdoor areas gives you maximum flexibility: You can enjoy cocktails in the garden, dine al fresco on the covered veranda, host an intimate dinner in an antique-filled parlor, and dance the night away in the gorgeous ballroom.
  • The mansion is a visual cornucopia: Hand-carved woodwork, crystal chandeliers, classical columns and a marble fireplace are just some of the exquisite period details you’ll find. A favorite photo op is posing on the grand staircase in front of the Palladian window.
