Originally built in 1867 by the Reverend D.R. Dickinson and his wife Margaret of New York City, the Bush House Estate has a truly rich history. The house remained owned by the couple’s daughter, Elizabeth and her husband, the Reverend A.D. Lawrence Jewett. The mansion was used as their summer home for many years and over the years the estate went through various owners such as Charles and George Stearns of Williamsport who purchases the home in 1912 or Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Munson. Mr. Munson who purchases the property in 1925.

The Bush House was the absolute perfect place to get married and have our reception! The owners are very receptive to meeting your needs and provide personal attention to your event, making sure the grounds and house are perfect and ready for your day. My family and friends were just over the moon about the venue, too. They have a bridal suite that had enough room for all nine ladies who got their hair and makeup done by two ladies we hired to bring in. And there is a groom's room, too, for the men to get dressed and ready. There is a gorgeous spiraling staircase to the bridal suite and provides a stunning photo opportunity as well. The house inside is beautiful, but it's the grounds that truly make this an ideal venue. There are several different places around the grounds you can choose from to have your ceremony. Then the big tent is ideal for your outdoor reception. It's on an 80 X 40 concrete slab which you can bring any type of flooring if you want. They have some lighting and two chandeliers, plus we brought additional lighting that they ended up purchasing from us to add to their own. We had 90 guests and there was more than enough room for all of us, plus our caterer, the DJ, a photo booth, a dance floor, our cake table, our seating chart table, and much more. The owners had just hired an event planner and day-of coordinator who was fantastic and helped our day go off without any problems whatsoever. She would have done more if we hadn't already been prepared to not have a day-of coordinator, and comes with 25 years of experience. It was a special treat to have her to work with, and she even took some photos that we will end up using for gifts and our scrapbook. I would recommend this beautiful venue to all shapes and sizes of parties, in addition to weddings. They have such a variety of ways to use the house and grounds, and are the most decent of people with whom to work in making sure your event is PERFECT, which ours truly was.Sent on 06/10/2017

Our daughter was married at the Bush House Estate. The staff and wedding coordinator made it a wonderful day. We changed the ceremony to the inside at 10:30 AM for a 4PM ceremony and it was a quick turn around to accommodate our guests. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception in the tent very memorable. The florist did a wonderful job and Mel's Catering came through with flying colors. Thank you Cindy (wedding coordinator), Carmen (owner), Mystic Florist, Mel's, and additional staff members of the Estate. Your professionalism, and concern for our needs was greatly appreciated. If you are looking for a unique, beautiful venue and live near here, you should consider this venue.Sent on 11/04/2018
