Lake Mansion and Porches: This historic main floor includes formal front and back parlors, a dining room, an art gallery (originally a master bedroom and library), and a kitchen (with a restroom attached). It’s the perfect backdrop for the all important wedding photos.

Depending on the time of year and event, the mansion and porches can accommodate up to 100 people. Picturesque Victorian porches wrap around the Mansion.
