This is a wedding and event venue that I would choose in a second! Just a pleasant place to be...situated on top of Lookout Mountain in the pines....nature trails with great views. Would be a fabulous place for ANY kind of event/party.

The whole story of this man is very interesting, but the house is not that spectacular. It would probably be a great place for a wedding or family reunion or something like that.

I have been up to the mansion 4 times and all the times I have only been able to look inside through the windows. I would really like to see the inside but they do a lot of fun stuff for kids around Halloween and other holidays so it is fun for younger kids.

Fascinating that a man would come to Manitou, bring his aristocratic mother, build a mansion and leave!

We came here on our hunt for a wedding venue. It was soo beautiful that we were set on having it here until we started searching a little more and realized we could do a lot more with the cost. The only real downside besides the expense was that you would have to use their DJ because of a tower... More

Dark and not very interesting or interactive. Maybe we missed something, but I didn't see much to see, learn, or do.

This was once a glorious home in the Arts and Crafts style. From the outside it looks Tudor, but the timbers are half-round logs. Unfortunately, it is not a house museum, there is not tour. The rooms are not decorated in a period style. This mansion is now used for weddings and other events. Most is not accessible and the... More
