WHAT A PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I stayed at the manor with friends this past holiday weekend and still can't get over how beautiful it was! The manor is absolutely breathtaking and quite spacious! (That's an understatement!) We enjoyed the views from the house, the yard, the pontoon! The location is a hidden paradise just minutes from all the essentials; grocery store, restaurants, downtown. The owner provided a very thorough list of area highlights and the manor's history, which we all particularly enjoyed learning about. While there we visited the Binder Park Zoo which was great for families and were also happy to find the Battle Creek Linear Path not five miles from the manor; being runners my fiance and I needed to get in a "long run" and it was perfect! Miles of maintained path that wound through the city. We are definitely keeping the manor bookmarked for the future! Thanks for a great stay!!!
