Garth Newel - Manor House

Historic manor house situated on the 114-acre estate that is home to the Garth Newel Music Center

The Manor House resides among the verdant rolling hills of the 114-acre estate that is home to the Garth Newel Music Center. Built in the 1920s by William Sergeant Kendall and his bride in honor of their nuptials, the Manor is listed on the Virginia Historic Registry. The Kendalls were artists and musicians, who often invited their friends from New York to join them on the estate to paint and make music, a tradition that continues to this day at the Garth Newel Music Center. The Manor can comfortably accommodate eighteen guests in its ten bedrooms, making it a perfect fit for a family reunion, a multiple-couple retreat, or a place for bridal parties and family members to stay before and after a wedding in the area.

In keeping with the home’s history, each of the impeccably-decorated bedrooms are named after prominent instrument makers and feature original art. All but one of these bedrooms are located on the second and third floors of the Manor, and each of them offer a full bath.

The main floor living area features a library/living room, as well as a dining room and a chef’s kitchen. The gourmet cooks in your party will relish in making meals in the very well-equipped kitchen, which features a professional-grade double oven and stove, as well as ample prep space. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room, which provides seating for eighteen at three round tables. The dining room also has a small lounge area with room for five, and a wood burning fireplace. A continental breakfast is included each morning of your stay. Additionally, there is catering available upon special, advance request.

After dinner, the cozy music room/library is the ideal place to escape to listen to musically-inclined friends play on the baby grand piano. Or choose a book from the room’s built-in mahogany bookshelves and settle in on one of the leather chairs in front of the wood burning fireplace. This room also opens onto a lovely patio with a small table and chairs; a wonderful spot to take in the idyllic views for which Bath County is known!
