It’s perfect for a multi-event weekend wedding if you’d like to host a cocktail hour, day-after brunch, or rehearsal dinner there, too.
Built in the 1790s, the main house features five guest rooms with private baths. Two charming cottages stand nearby, each featuring a king-sized bed to accommodate your guests comfortably.

We especially love the roomy bridal suite with a kitchen, plenty of space for you and your bride tribe to prepare, and a private courtyard for perfect pre-wedding photo shoots.
The price tag may seem steeper than others, but that’s because they literally include everything in the package. (Besides the pre-wedding courage tequila and the guests. You’ll have to bring those yourself.)

The historic buildings sit on 70 acres, and the castle features 18 fireplaces, 44 rooms, and more than 200 windows for photo ops galore. You really do have to see it for yourself to get the scope of just how grandiose this venue is.
