Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This stately Italian Renaissance Revival manor has been a beloved part of Minneapolis since its construction in 1899. It’s been lovingly refurbished and outfitted with all the modern necessities, and its ballroom—the largest residential ballroom in the city—boasts breathtaking views of the city skyline.
  • The third floor Grand Palladian Room is an opulent masterpiece, with gleaming wood floors, stained glass accents, a built-in stage, and cove ceilings detailed with gilded moldings and hung with Swarovski crystal chandeliers.
  • The mansion boasts several beautiful additional spaces for intimate events (including the Wine Grotto, graceful Foyer, and cozy Library), as well as wonderfully appointed suites for both the bridal party.
