Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Sitting on 33 lush acres, this late-1700s estate along the Conestoga River showcases the very best of Lancaster County, with gardens, natural woodlands, and a traditional Colonial manor house.
  • Let the stately brick home serve as the backdrop for your vows, followed by cocktails on the lawn and a reception in the stunning barn, with its rustic rock walls, hand-hewn beams, and antique-style lanterns.
  • Prefer to keep the whole shindig outside? There's plenty of space on the lawn for a large tent—use it alone, or in conjunction with the barn for an indoor-outdoor affair.


Microwedding pricing available upon request.
