Why We Like This Place

• It’s a romantic French chateau dating back to 1923. Nestled on the banks of the Sakonnet River, it features beautiful stonework, graceful arches, brick chimneys, plenty of natural light and a restful ambiance.  

• The picturesque grounds are ideal for photographs.
The lawn with the expansive river in the background is the perfect place for your wedding ceremony. Afterwards, pose in the formal gardens or down by the water on the bridge or private dock.

• The entire house is yours on your special day, so you can host different phases of your event in several elegantly appointed rooms. Serve cocktails in the library or on the terrace…enjoy your dinner reception in the sophisticated dining room…and dance the night away in the lovely ballroom. An outdoor patio is graced by a flower-encircled fountain and is partially protected by a seasonal covered awning.
