“Wonderful place for a wedding or anytime”
Reviewed July 5, 2008

Had my daughters wedding here. Saw the place and fell in love with it. The rooms are fantastic, both in the main house and carriage house. Beautiful furnishings and wood working.
The food was fantastic. Had a great breakfast both mornings. Was better than I could have imagined. Everything was so tasty and presented beautifully. The food at the wedding was the best I've ever tasted at a wedding. The filet mignon and the chicken and crabcake was excellent. Was shocked to find out that all 157 meals were cooked by one chef in a small kitchen. Food arrived fast and hot. Never tasted a crabcake so good.
The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. Kaj, the owner showed the men around the mansion and told them the story of how the place was fixed up and all about the original owners.
This is one place that you must stay. My husband and I plan to go back in the fall or winter. Looking forward to seeing a fire in the many fireplaces. The grounds are also beautiful. Plenty of trees and even a swimming pool.
Thank you for making our daughters wedding just perfect. It was really the weekend of a lifetime for all who stayed there.

We had a great stay at the Stirling! Our room was wonderful - we stayed in the Family Suite (2 adults, 2 children). The room was clean and the bathroom was modern. We had a fridge and plenty of room and privacy. The beds were comfortable, but they did squeak when you moved around in them. The grounds were in excellent shape and the breakfast each day exceeded expectations - A full, made to order breakfast....the first day I had a crabmeat omelet with bacon and hash browns. The staff was very friendly and accommodating....couldn't have asked for more! We even had full use of the public areas anytime. The pool was cool too - it was an old time original surrounded by beautiful trees. It was about 5 to 7 feet deep all the way around – no shallow area for the youngsters. The staff told us it was dug in 1946 by one man, paid $1/day.....if you like history, you need to check this place out. It is located right off of Rt. 61 in the historic district of Reading….the neighborhood was very quaint.

  • Liked — The historic nature of the property.
  • Disliked — Nothing.
