Wentworth Mansion Hotel Review: Originally known as the Rodgers Mansion, this Second Empire-style home was built between 1885 and 1887. Vestiges of its grand past can be seen in details such as the hand-carved marble fireplaces and Tiffany stained-glass windows. The rich heritage is further showcased in the mahogany, oak and walnut woodwork. Accommodations range from Mansion Rooms to the Grand Mansion Suite. The latter looks as if it belongs in a European villa. An original crystal Tiffany chandelier overhangs the sitting area, and there are two fireplaces. All rooms have whirlpools, and many have day beds. A European breakfast buffet is served on the sun porch, and one of the citys best dining establishments, Circa 1886, is located in the gardens behind the mansion. Rodgers Library serves as the venue for complimentary cordials. A concierge is available to direct you to nearby historic homes and gardens. The romantic setting makes this place popular for weekend getaways and Valentines Day escapes. Spring and autumn are notably busy seasons.
