About Akwaaba Mansion

Once a dilapidated mansion that the kids in the neighborhood called "the haunted house", the Akwaaba Mansion in Brooklyn NY was returned to its original grandeur and reopened as a Bed and Breakfast in 1995.

Built in the 1860's this landmark mansion was returned to its original grandeur, featuring details such as 14-foot ceilings, ornate fireplaces, intricate parquet wood floors and gaslight fixtures, along with modern amenities, such as a private bath in each guestroom with oversize Jacuzzi tubs. Relax on the sun porch, enjoy hearty breakfasts and take advantage of a luxury getaway!

The Akwaaba Mansion is an elegant setting, perfect for private parties, retreats and for your dream wedding! Whether it's outside in the courtyard on a sunny day, or inside on a cool, crisp day with the beauty and ambiance of the fireplaces, let Akwaaba be the first step of many in your future!

    Great for small weddings!

    Akwaaba is a great setting for an intimate wedding! The management team was professional and very responsive to all questions leading up to the big day. The site coordinator Shirley was also kind and extremely helpful on the day of. It was great to be able to stay at the inn and have a delicious breakfast before and after the wedding. Our families and friends loved the decor and the overall experience! It was also great to be so close to quality bars and restaurants for our guests to go after the reception.

    My husband and I had an intimate 55 person wedding ceremony and dinner at Akwaaba Mansion. I cannot say enough about Monique and the entire team who made our wedding night simply magical. We literally pinched ourselves the next morning! Though we booked the Inn early in our engagement, we waited until sort of last minute to put everything together. We found Akwaaba to be well-organized, but flexible and pretty much the most stunning place in Brooklyn to be married (and we looked at a lot of venues!). It's also great that there is outdoor space, which we made great use of, and a piano in the interior living room (so we were able to have piano music accompanying dinner). When we said goodbye to our guests and walked them to the door it felt like we were seeing them off from our home, that's how comfortable we were made to feel. I got asked so many times how we found this incredible venue as well. Monique also did plenty of things to make the night magical - by the time we got to our bedroom a bath had been run and the room was filled with candles. In the morning our breakfast was truly one of the best we've had and it was so wonderful to have the entire inn to ourselves. My husband and I are big supporters of family run businesses and we're just so incredibly proud of what Akwaaba was able to do for our special day. We'll look forward to staying again on our anniversary and other special occasions too! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Akwaaba for making our day so special.

    I had my wedding at another location owned by Akwaaba Mansion's Monique Greenwood-- The Mansion at Noble Lane in Bethany, PA. Noble Lane is the largest of the 4 properties, so it was perfect for my 200+ wedding. I hosted my spa-chelorette party with a tea and luncheon there on Saturday afternoon, held the rehearsal dinner at the on-site Taste Restaurant, and then had our outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner there on Sunday. Dancing, photo booth, and formalities were held inside the mansion.

    Initially, I came upon Akwaaba Mansion (Brooklyn, NY) and fell in love with its hardwood floors and unique space. So imagine my delight to learn about The Mansion at Noble Lane. After visiting 25 wedding venues throughout the tri-state area, we finally visited The Mansion at Noble Lane and immediately set our hearts there, with 7 months to plan the entire wedding. Monique and Erica were both God-sent-- they were very helpful about potential vendors, answered emails and phone calls in a timely manner, and just patiently dealt with the crazy mind of a bride with a high stress job.

    We booked the entire 14-bedroom B&B for the weekend and we couldn't have been happier. The service was excellent, the 22-acre property was amazing, our guests enjoyed the various amenities (pool, weight room, breakfast, and spacious rooms) and it just felt like a family reunion in the mansion. By the time we left a few days after the wedding, we felt like we were part of the Akwaaba family as well (Monique and Donna were so kind and just accommodated all our needs). We loved it so much that we can't wait to celebrate our anniversary at another Akwaaba property-- the goal is to stay at each location at least once and hopefully celebrate our 10/25-year anniversary at The Mansion at Noble Lane. It was just too perfect to not repeat it again!
