NOT A 'PARTY HOUSE'

Gentlemen...does she keep telling you to come up with something for your anniversary, or her birthday, Guys! Call me...I can help you plan something that will have her marveling at your thoughtfulness and bragging to her friends. You can do it, I can help. Call.

This home is not rented as a 'party house'. Suited for responsible groups, families, church groups, ladies retreats, or scrap booking party, Birthdays, and nature lovers. Celebrate mom and dads 50 anniversary with a family getaway, Business trip?... Bring the whole family. Just minutes from local hospitals - Extend your stay in comfort while visiting loved ones, or have peace and quiet while you recover from illness or loss. Is your house is too small for all the kids to come home? Gather all your adult children and their growing families and enjoy a holiday or anytime in this home away from home.

This house allows you to be creative. Don't hesitate to call with questions.

The adventure is right in your own back yard!: This home offers so much history and comfort, while still providing an outdoor adventure. The yard is a 1/2 city block with an array of trees and plant life. Deer are often seen walking through to nibble on the apple trees and occasional a friendly fox pounces around. It may be rare, but you may even sight a curios black bear. The yard boarders on a creek with lovely waters falls, paths, bridge and a occasional bench to sit on and just take it all in. In the winter this area is breathtaking. Large sheets of frozen water cling to the cliff walls, the air is crisp and fresh. The paths are always used, but not over used. Just perfect.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was the most perfect place for our family to stay and prepare for our son's wedding. We had a wonderful time and we were completely comfortable in your home. From my 87 year old mother taking over the "butler's quarters" - Mike & I having the bedroom next to her (just so I could keep an ear open for her during the night); to our 3 grandchildren taking over the upper bedroom and turning it into a dormitory; to our son/spouse, daughter/spouse and my sister each having the privacy of their own room.

Awesome home! Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the mansion. Has a ton of space, characterand is very comfortable. The master bedroom is great along with attached bathroom. Kitchen had everything we needed. Lots of cozy spots for cards or whatever. Nature hike is a must from the park next to property, but is very slippery in the winter. 10$ uber rides into canal park so very convenient location.

Grand, beautiful, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! We had a group of 11 girls and there was tons of room for everyone to have their own space. The house is absolutely beautiful and so well stocked with everything we needed. I will definitely rent this place again!

Amazing home-Perfect family Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

Hawthorne Manor was warm and welcoming. The house was just as described-even better. Perfect for our family group of 3 generations. The live Christmas tree and other decorations made us feel right at home. The 10 of us had plenty of room to spread out or spend time together. The house had comfortable beds and bedding. Even though the temp dropped to -18, we were always warm and cozy. A perfect location- We especially enjoyed a tour of GlenSheen Mansion and the lights at Bentlyville. We may make this a new Christmas tradition.

Family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

For historic house lovers, this is the perfect place for a family gathering. Combining the comforts of today with the beauty of the past, this home was the perfect place to stay. It is big enough so that family members have their own spaces but it’s cozy gathering spaces will draw the family together, too.

Thank you, Theresa.
