You can select The Pavilion, in whole or in part. Its 5,000 square feet of floor space can accommodate many types of events. The lawn adjacent to The Pavilion is available for use during your event. The Turtle Bar sits at the rear of this lawn and can be used with The Pavilion.
Neptune's Ballroom and Courtyard
The very beautiful Neptune's Ballroom and Neptune's Courtyard, are a perfect combination of indoor and outdoor accommodations. The 2,500 square foot Ballroom houses a civil war era submarine, affording a very unique piece of American history to be part of your event. The Courtyard features two lily ponds with fountains. Use them together or seperately for that truly one of a kind event.
The Hampton Fountain Court
The Hampton Fountain Court located at the rear of the mansion offers a spectacular view and a cozy atmosphere. It is a 30,000 square foot walled garden, which features a circular 50 foot water-lily pond with a fountain that dances to entertain and dazzle your guests. After dark the fountain is lighted for a dazzling display.
The Grand Lawn
The Grand Lawn at the front of the mansion offers nearly 7 acres of manicured lawn, surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and lakes. Our allee' of oaks offers a 300 foot walk for the bride on her special day. Or a dinner for up to 250 people served at one long table under the majestic Cathedral of Oaks.

The original house features four exquisite rooms, each with its own personality. Use one or two or three or all four of the rooms, depending on the size of your group.
