Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Priceless collections from the gilded age? Check. Ordinary museum? No way. This turn-of-the-century, 30,000-square-foot homestead built by one of the country’s leading industrialists showcases the integration of family life with avant-garde art & design.
  • It features impeccable gardens and sweeping views of the Litchfield Hills. The varied 152 acres include expansive lawns for tented receptions, a renowned Sunken Garden for ceremonies, and meandering pathways to explore for that perfect photo memory.
  • The legacy of a very modern woman lives on. The original owner’s daughter, one of only a handful of female architects at the time, designed this place and then balanced work and family by hosting the first wedding here—her own!
