Private Dinner at the Luxury Mansion

One of America’s finest country homes where royalty has stayed with only 18 rooms and fine dining restaurant experience this is the finest getaways from busy Manhattan.

Mansion also features beautiful gardens with marble staircases and gracious terraces. European-style elegance and sophistication. We recommend taking a helicopter ride from Manhattan and land on property to experience unparalleled personal service in an extraordinarily glamorous setting.

The Private Dinner for two can be set up in one of their Private Dining Rooms where guests will be surrounded by exquisite collection of fine European porcelain and silverware from around the world. We can also recommend staying overnight at this beautiful Mansion.
