Crosley is a big name in Cincinnati, my home town. The Crosley's "winter" getaway spot is so charming with sweeping bay views and beautiful old tile work. I really enjoyed poking around the rooms and outside areas.

We set aside a Tuesday afternoon to see the Powel Crosley Estate and Museum and were so excited to see it as he was such an interesting character. The website and the Facebook page clearly said it was open from 10-4. We got there and on the closed gate was a sign that clearly said "Closed today for a private... More

Our daughter selected Powel Crosley Estate for the venue for her wedding. This was a destination wedding so a lot of planning and hoping for beautiful weather when into it. The day of the wedding, which was in early March, came and the weather was beautiful. The house and grounds were a perfect setting for a romantic sunset wedding. It... More

Looking to kill sometime while waiting around the airport? This old estate on the bay is a great choice. I highly recommend their holiday events in December. Even locals have to try it at least once.

We attended the wedding of my nephew here on March 28, 2016. It was absolutely beautiful. The staff was friendly and the views of the water were so nice.

The Powel Crosley Estate was the venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. Such a beautiful place. You can rent the house and grounds so there are a lot of possibilities...inside, on the back patio, at the pavilion, right by the water. All the guests were impressed with the venue. It is so intimate since you have the place to... More

When I called the powel crosley estate for wedding plan information, they spoke down to me for my questions, they were short with me and just wanted me off the phone and I only had about a minutes worth of handle time before I was abruptly over...

If you know the Powell Crosley story, it is a great place to visit. The mansion is interesting to walk through but be sure to visit the garage/servants quarters. It is a museum containing many of the Crosley's products and inventions, including two Crosley vehicles. There was no charge for admission when we visited.
