"I don't have enough good things to say about our stay at Wentworth. Truly one of the best experiences in places to stay. The staff was wonderful, the room beautiful, the food exquisite. Such a beautifully kept mansion! We loved happy hour and the round the clock 'treats' for the guests. I also recommend checking out Circa 1886 for dinner! Wentworth was our favorite part of our honeymoon!"The Knot
"The Wentworth Mansion was an integral part of our dream wedding weekend. We had all of our guests stay at the Wentworth Mansion and we held our intimate reception dinner in a private room at Circa 1886. The staff was so wonderful and accommodating which made planning remotely easy."Gabrielle and David Baron
"The Wentworth Mansion is simply perfect. We stayed on the second floor in a King Mansion Suite for two nights. I can't begin to describe how perfect it was to return from our wedding at the end of the night and walk up and enter the Wentworth Mansion. We felt as if we were coming home (to a much nicer home of course), but the house is warm and inviting."
