History
This venue has a long history and is a great option for couples who’d like to start their lives as a married couple in a historic, romantic setting. It started with the War of 1812 when the Cottle family obtained the property on land grant 285 from the war. Oliver Cottle, wanting to live his dream of owning a stunning stone house, added a small house to the property to live that dream. Built on top of a hill between several sycamore trees, the house features historical, architectural charm. The conservatory was added to the house in 1903 and there is a beautiful fireplace on the wall. The oldest known photograph of the stone house features two boys and was taken in the 1930s.

    Unfortunate Virus Pandemic

    With all the frustration with the Virus and cancelled weddings . We found Ruth and Mike to be quite helpful . They are dealing with many emotions that couples are going thru .I can't imagine the stress of trying to help everyone . My daughter is also going thru this situation . Her wedding was supposed to be 3/27/20. They responded quickly and helped us make a new date. Our guest have actually responded quite positive to the new date . I don't feel that this is an easy time for them either . As a business they do not want to disappoint clients.This is their lively hood The fact that they worked with us is amazing ,Some venues are NOT offering any help at all. The catering company was awesome as well (Russo's). The bar service was also amazingly helpful . I understand the reasoning for preference of vendors now .
    I would recommend giving them a chance if you are looking to book a wedding in the future . They handled this the best way possible . I will follow up with a review after wedding and reception , and let you know how it goes . I see nothing but a very happy day ahead.
