Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This stately manor home was once one of the country’s premier horse training facilities, having produced seven Preakness winners. It’s been thoughtfully renovated to highlight its vintage charm, while incorporating party-ready modern amenities.
  • Your celebration options include the timelessly elegant indoor ballroom with tons of natural light and two inviting fireplaces, and a beautiful rooftop deck that overlooks the manicured grounds.
  • You'll have all-day use of two stylish dressing areas, and overnight bed and breakfast accommodations are available in the mansion’s seven spacious suites.
