We live on one of the most beautiful shorelines in the world.
We never get tired of it, we never take it for granted, we celebrate it endlessly.
And we love when it inspires our guests with the same sense of awe.
Come and share it with us!
We are asked to host 1000s of weddings every year. We only agree to a handful of them.
Choosing The Manor for such an important event is a lovely compliment to us, but in reality most weddings are much too large for our inn to accommodate. We don’t have the space, the parking, the staff, the know-how, even the bathrooms.
And though Elaine surely loves doing The Chicken Dance, we simply aren’t in the wedding business.
We are happy to make recommendations for wedding locations that we think are wonderful and better suited for such large parties, just ask us.
If you are thinking of a more intimate event, like an elopement, with just bride and groom (and perhaps one other couple as witnesses), we are delighted to host a lovely ritual for you at The Manor.
Elaine is ordained to officiate, Robert takes great photos. All for no more cost than your overnight stay. And The Chicken Dance is only upon request, we promise.
The Manor celebrates engagements, honeymoons, commitment ceremonies, anniversaries, birthdays, friends and family reunions, girlfriend bashes, life celebrations of all kinds, every day. Solo retreats, romantic escapes and small group getaways are what we do best, so that’s what we do. You will surely feel the magic of 25 years of joy and laughter–it’s in the air!!– when you bring your special occasion to us.
And, here’s a happy footnote: When you come to The Manor to be private, romantic and quiet, you won’t end up stuck in the middle of a riotous whole-house wedding party. Gotta love that.
On any given night when we hold hands and watch the sky coax the mood from daylight to moonlight, we experience the rush of romance. Everyone sharing our stretch of beach is suspended in the same wave of hushed awe.
Frequently, at the precise moment when the sun hangs halfway between sky and water, we witness a marriage proposal. Other times a small wedding party, barefoot in the sand. No matter what, when the sun flashes its final farewell into the lake, there is usually applause from everyone present.
