Love this place. We have been going for years, and have seen it change hands several times. But the current owners have made this place amazing over the past few years, and make it better every year. It is always a pleasure to visit every year, Henry and Eddie, and any if the new faces are always so welcoming
This is one beautiful old home that has been restored to its former glory, a great place for a wedding or to have pictures taken and it even has a couple of small cottages that can be rented. The owners are wonderful people who grew up in this small town, they have deep roots in the community. The first egg hunt for the town at the manor (that's the picture,) they also have a sweet kids parade on the 3rd of July
