Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Built in the 1890s and reminiscent of a French Chateau, this mansion impresses with its Beaux Arts-style architecture, formal gardens and landscaped grounds.
  • Celebrations inside the mansion take on the gracious opulence of the Gilded Age, from the Great Hall’s soaring ceiling, massive stone fireplace, and elaborate staircase to the Music Room’s ornate Louis XVI décor. Outdoor options include the Side Garden, featuring a charming reflecting pool, and the South Terrace, the perfect setting for dining under the stars or in a custom tent.
  • Your wedding album will be as memorable as the wedding itself. There are fabulous photo ops everywhere: Unique architectural and decorative elements in every room make irresistible backdrops (that Great Room staircase is a magnet for posing!), and the estate’s lush gardens, manicured lawns, winding paths, and surrounding forest are extremely photogenic.
