The Main House
Built in 1825 by Jacob and Anne Hake, which you will see engraved on the front of the house, this stunning stone and wooden house is home to the owners and hosts our den, one of the estate's bridal suites. The house makes for a stunning backdrop for rose garden ceremonies.

Located under the patio of the Main House, the den is the estate's second bridal suite.
Complete with a full kitchen and bath, your second half won't have to stress about getting ready in a hotel and then making it to the ceremony on time. The den opens to a large shaded patio and has a beautiful view of the grounds. The Den and Cottage are far enough apart, photographers can take you out separately for photographs without worrying you'll bump into one another before the time is right.
Your significant other is sure to have a good time getting ready while playing some cards, throwing some darts and toasting to a new journey together!
The gem of Historic Shady Lane - built in 1890 by Lord & Burnham, the glass and stone greenhouse is the setting for ceremonies and cocktail hours alike. Adorned with crystal chandeliers and twinkling white lights, the greenhouse is awaiting you and your guests.

Admist the ivy and shade trees is our rustic early 1900s bandstand, which was home to summer concerts in the early twentieth century. Easily becoming the new favorite ceremony site, couples can take on this structure as their own with florals, greenery or leaving it as nature would have it.
