Built in 1744 by wine importer John Wister, Grumblethorpe was intended as a summer retreat house. The stone exterior of the house gives a quaint, rustic and romantic touch to your special day. The vintage windows trimmed in a rich red will remind your guests of the history that this original retreat house features.
You will absolutely enjoy Grumblethorpe! The house is a prime example of domestic Germantown architecture of the period, and the large gardens surrounding the house have been restored to resemble the gardens as they appeared in the 19th century.
