    Peter Harrison was excellent in every way! He was always available to answer any questions you may have. When my matron of honor came into town he had no problem opening the place up and giving her a tour. He was available to help my wedding coordinator in decorating the day before. The place is absolutely beautiful! I felt like a princess when I entered the room! I forgot my glasses at the venue and Peter walked them over to our hotel room! That is going beyond what words I can say! Excellent caring man! Not just a business owner! Thank you Peter!

    This venue is a hidden gem as I like to call it! Set in a historical part of Staunton, VA; it gives the bride and groom a venue like none other-quaint and romantic . The outside is just as pretty as the inside-great for photography! Brian and his staff are great to work with! Perfect working area for your caterers! Definitely a location to consider when you are looking!
