Our family booked the entire property and all rooms Friday - Sunday for a wedding. Place was cool looking though LACKING IN HOSPITALITY and PROFESSIONALISM. NO actual CONTINGENCY for rain/weather as they stated they had it covered, which at the last minute had to search for flooring for a soaked grass beneath the tent. Our ceremony had to postpone almost... More

Stayed here over the Memorial Day week-end 2015. Daughter made reservation for two rooms. We assumed it was a bed and breakfast but we were told , on arrival, that no breakfast was served. We assumed we would be housed in the mansion but we were assigned two rooms in the carriage house. The rooms were described as rustic and... More

I thought I booked a room at the Maxwell Mansion house but when I arrived they put us in the "carriage house" behind the mansion which is basically a very cheap motel.

I was recently at this mansion for a photography session and this was a beautiful backdrop! The mansion itself is clean and beautifully furnished. I was greeted at the door by a bellman. I highly recommend this location for tours, photography or even rent the space for your next gathering.

Was here recently for a photo shoot, the rooms will take you back in time. Absolutely stunning. Each room is gorgeous, make sure you check out the bathtubs upstairs. If you're looking for a georgeous quiet place to go, this is the place and I walking distance from the lake and downtown. Will definitely be going back for an overnight... More

I visited this mansion this past weekend for a photography session. It was more beautiful than I could have imagined. There were little tables and chairs outside and an antique feel indoors! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the time were extremely clean! I'd love to visit again!!
