In the 1800's the humble Conewago Manor Farm was acquired by Iron Master Henry Bates Grubb. He added the stone mansion to the property and renamed his new home Mount Vernon Estate.
While Mr. Grubb served as Iron Master of Hopewell Forge, the Manor grew to several thousand acres in size. The remnants of his legacy can be seen by visiting the ruins of his blast furnace, known once as the Mount Vernon Furnace, which are located by the giant sycamore tree along the Conewago Creek.
Early deeds to the property preserve the rights for moving farm animals along the creek and for cutting ice for later use. Today you will often see deer in that same area, contentedly eating apples from the orchard trees. We hope that this retreat puts you in the same pastoral and reflective mood. This guest room shares a patio with Master Hagar’s Chambers.

"A giant thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did to make Sarah and Dave's wedding the occasion we have all been dreaming about. The Manor is just an exquisite venue, from the beautiful grounds to the incredible Manor house - it could not have been better. Being able to hold the rehearsal and dinner there, as well as stay at the Manor, was so convenient since we are from out of town. Sarah and Dave wanted an outdoor wedding in a special setting - this was it!"Jane and Charles M., Sarah and Dave
