Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With its dramatic, Romanesque design and lovingly restored interiors, this historic, 1860s mansion is the ideal spot for an intimate, vintage-glam celebration.
  • Small weddings with a lavish flair are their specialty. Following your ceremony in the lush garden courtyard, you’ll move to the Main House—enjoy cocktails in the foyer, accompanied by the strains of a string quartet, then follow with dinner and dancing in the home, or on the pretty grounds.
  • Their rooms and suites are perfect for your day-of preparation, as well as your luxe overnight accommodations. We particularly love the Carriage House, with a vintage charm that makes it the ideal honeymoon cottage.
