We went during the day and it wasn't technically open but people were there and took us for a short tour. It's a beautiful place and would make a great place to host a wedding.

I believe this is the best place around Bel Air to host a small to medium sized event. I have had events here and attended a number of shows and functions here and always been quite happy with the location.
