About Peterloon Estate

Guests proceeding down its long entrance get to witness the gorgeous façade nestled in between bountiful natural scenery, giving it a European-fairy tale feel. The entrance to the Peterloon Estate is lined with small trees, shrubs, and expertly crafted menagerie statues, including dolphins, roosters, dogs, and snails.

John J. Emery built the mansion for the Emery Family in 1928, employing the talents of architect and design firm Delano & Aldrich. The goal when designing Peterloon was to create a grand house that could stand independently compared to the greatest houses in Europe and across the United States. The house contains an amazing 36 rooms. Guests at the Peterloon Estate would find 19 different fireplaces, 21 baths, and an entire guest wing just for their stay.

Its outdoor features include a fountain that exudes a romantic atmosphere for couples and guests. It offers a spectacular view of the surrounding wooded acres, also reflected in the pool. The crystal clear reflection looks like a portal where one is transported to an otherworldly woodland realm. It is the perfect focal point for spectacular wedding photos.

The interior features are expertly designed from breathtaking 16th-century-inspired architecture. The floors are a testament to more romantic times. A 400-year-old oak parquet de Versailles floor shines with each step you take to explore the displays in the house.
