Why We Like This Place

  • From the gracious porte-cochère and river views to the 18 acres of meticulous English gardens (designed as a park), this private riverfront estate will make you feel “to the manor born”. In addition to the 1902 classical revival mansion itself, there’s a fully customizable, climate-controlled Riverside Pavilion that seats up to 350.
  • You have lots of options for exchanging vows. After getting ready in the sunlit bridal suite on the mansion’s second floor, you can tie the knot outdoors in a leafy clearing or on the waterfront. Indoor ceremonies take place in gracious rooms with details like arched entries, inlaid wood floors, decorative cornices, and a spectacular grand staircase topped with a circular, stained-glass ceiling.
  • Cocktails are be served in a variety of settings, too. Choices include outdoor terraces, four-season porches, the boathouse roof on the riverfront, and the Pavilion’s covered porch.
