The Mansion at Sonnenberg. Queen Anne style mansion was built in 1887 by
Fredrick Ferris Thompson and his wife Mary Clark Thompson.
This was their summer home.
Warning: picture heavy post....
We started the journey with a wine tasting in Sonnenberg's wine cellar and this wonderful stained glass adorns a whole wall of the cellar.
The Japanese Gardens are my favorite:
I felt like I was at a kegger carrying this cup around. Next time I'm bringing a chalice to carry around my
Derek in front of the tea house, he was also invited to the Sonnenberg kegger.
What's left of the Roman bath. So amazing to think of people swimming in this beauty.

I love the peacock!
Beautiful white peacock
Gorgeous bedroom. The wallpaper is amazing!
Portrait of Mary Clark Thompson (I wanted to move the tour sign so bad!)
I've been visiting Sonnenberg since I was a little girl and I don't recall this
beautiful garden named The Blue & White Garden

There are so many more photos and so many wonderful delights at Sonnenberg. It's one of my favorite places to visit and I'm so thankful that it's being preserved and restored.
Thank you for reading and letting me share!
