Why We Like This Place

  • Though surrounded by ten acres of lush gardens on the shores of Gravelly Lake, this historic estate is only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Tacoma.
  • A wisteria-covered terrace, brick paths, ponds, and a beautiful gazebo offer countless locations for an outdoor ceremony, and the Georgian architecture of the house makes an elegant backdrop for dinner and dancing.
  • Nearby hotels, restaurants, and entertainment—like the Thornewood Castle Inn and the Great American Casino—provide ample accommodation and recreation options for out-of-town guests.
