The Owner purchased this estate in 2010
It is close to my primary residence and offers an easy weekend escape for myself and my family. There is much to do, not only at the house, but also in the very nearby surrounding area.
This place is AMAZING!!! Pictures do not do it justice. The kids absolutely loved it. We had an amazing weekend and the weather was picture perfect. We will be renting this house again. Thanks Dan!
Best stay ever. George was such a pleasure to work with. He went out of his way to accommodate us. The grounds and premises were perfect for our very large group. Adults and children enjoyed all amenities. We are looking forward to going back!
We first rented in 2012 and have gone back each September since. It's too good to move to another location! Easy for our groups as we come from Philly, Boston, CT, NY, NJ, DE.
We have a big group (30-35) depending on the year. It's great to have 16 bedrooms, each with their own bath, for all the adults. The indoor pool is great and the grounds are huge! Plenty of room for croquet, bocce, and other lawn games. There is so much space in the living area of the home that you never feel cramped or on top of each other. You can be reading in the living room and not be bothered by people hanging in the dining room, porch or pool area.
We would definitely recommend to any big group.
We just returned from a weekend at the "mansion." We were a group of 27 family members three generations (15 grandkids ages 5-25). Everyone had a great time. The game room was wonderful and we actually ended up dancing under the disco ball on the dance floor. The indoor pool was a huge plus, and all the kids had a blast.
The reasons I'm not giving it 5 stars are: there's no central air, and only 4 of the 16 bedrooms have air conditioning; none of the bathrooms upstairs had any towel racks or hooks to hang your towels on; The oversized deck only had one table to seat 6 (and it was rusty) and the deck chairs are those old chalky white plastic ones; there is absolutely no artwork (or photos) of any kind on any wall in the house and the bedrooms didn't have any nightstands or lamps. It really shouldn't be described as a mansion because it isn't. It's just a GIGANTIC house.
..... delightful. Perfect for a family reunion. Half a dozen kids under 5... through age 80; 20 adults, 10 kids. Three generations. Idyllic.
This house is awesome! This was our second time renting and it was great - clean, and plenty of amenities. The indoor pool is a big plus. The owner and caretakers are helpful and pleasant. We hope to go back next year!
Also - good Italian catering from nearby Il Castello.
Just came back from a wonderful family gathering. There were 46 of us from age 2 to 66. The place is beautiful and was very clean. The pool area is out of this world and so spacious! We are already hoping we can book again for next year. The photos do not give the place the justice it deserves. The caretaker was very nice and informative and came as soon as we called him after running out of propane for the bar-b-que. Every bedroom has its own bathroom and all were very clean. I can't wait to go back.
There is a fenced in softball diamond, basketball court, paddle board court and shuffle board court.
