Tranquility & Elegance
IN A PRIVATE SETTING
The history of Linwood Estate dates back to 1807, built as a small cabin and later transformed into a grand manor by Linwood B. Phillips Jr., known as L.B. When LB passed away in 2006, the property stayed private until it went up for auction in late 2013. The new owners, Dr. Robert and Mrs. Christine Myers purchased the estate to renovate the property so it could be shared with the community. Even though the property is under a new family, the connection to the original family is still present. Dr. Myers grandfather and L.B. were good friends and would often sit together in the mansion by the fireplace discussing real estate and other topics.
Today, Linwood Estate offers a variety of beautiful event locations to fit any intimate gathering or a grand celebration. Choose from several sites such as the Linwood Mansion, The Appalachian Ballroom, Blue Mountain Terrace, and Linwood Gardens and Labyrinth. Each location features beautiful views of the Appalachian Mountain Range and iconic scenery to provide the perfect, secluded setting for your special occasion.
Graced with Grecian-style sculptures and a Secret Garden-esque impression, this location hosts a lovely rose garden, a small pond and waterfall hidden among the maze of flowers and foliage. The Gardens are a beautiful spot for a small ceremony, one of a kind photos or an inviting place to wander.
