The Wadsworth Homestead is an elegant 200-year-old historic manor house overlooking the Genesee Valley to the west and surrounded by magnificent ancient oak trees. Guests will be able to stroll the porch and first floor with original furnishings and décor from six generations of the Wadsworth family and experience the ambience of a bygone era.
For large parties and weddings, a tent will be situated on the former tennis court, providing a hard surface, that overlooks the oval pool and nearby gardens. We can accommodate up to 300 guests in the tent. Mature trees make this a wonderfully protected area. The former bathhouses have been converted to comfortable, handicap accessible, restrooms.
Inside are an elegant dining room, 2 drawing rooms, a large hall with winding staircase, ornate library and and 6 fireplaces on the first floor. A circular flow to the rooms makes this a wonderful house for parties and social events. To the west a large porch overlooking the valley runs the entire length of the house and is ideal for cocktails. The second floor rooms of the Homestead have been renovated and are available to rent during weddings and large group functions.
