The Newlyweds

This gorgeous balcony suite is called "The Newlyweds" for John & Ida Gross, who were given the estate as a wedding gift by Ida's parents, Herman & Bertha Marwitz. John & Ida commissioned the expansion construction in 1889 and again in 1898 to include the features and extra rooms we see today.

This is one of the largest suites of the estate lined with tall windows, a private full bathroom, and connected sitting room. The bedroom overlooks the back of the property, and hand-carved claw foot king bed and deep red chairs are original to the home. The space is decorated by antique bust lamps and bedside tables, and topped with modern abstract artwork. Step into the seating area, and a beautifully large window casts natural light over the antique fireplace. The private full bath includes a tub/shower combo and a full length window carries the enchanting natural light to this side of the suite.

Everything we wanted and more.

“A lovely opportunity to step away from the rush of everyday life and step back in time. The calm and elegance and beauty of this room, this mansion have been everything we wanted and more.”

— J.D.


“This place is unforgettable and has captured our hearts and imagination as few others have, and someday we must return. The ambiance and amenities make their mark, but it is your kindness and hospitality that we will remember.”

— J.T.

I can't wait until next summer!
