This turn-of-century mansion, once home to Lewis Sadler, has been restored to its full splendor. The mansion celebrates the legacy of life lived once by entertaining the biggest politicians of this country while providing modern-day comfort and amenities. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, you'll enjoy a restful night and wake up to the sound of birds in the middle of the park with a hearty breakfast, and then welcome the abundance of cultural and recreational activities the surround area has to offer, enough to satisfy any personality and desire.
