Perched atop Packer Hill, just steps from historic downtown, the Harry Packer Mansion sits like a sentinel overlooking the town. The mansion’s impressive facade could have been taken from a Gothic novel, so much so that the building’s design caught the eye of Disney Imagineers and it became the model for Walt Disney World’s “Haunted Mansion!” The interior however is anything but spooky. Fifteen foot ceilings, marble fireplaces and gilded mirrors reflect the elegance of the Victorian Age. The guest accommodations in the mansion and the adjoining Carriage House are furnished with period antiques, luxurious fabrics, and carefully selected artwork. In addition to offering overnight accommodations the Mansion also hosts Murder Mystery Weekends, First Friday Wine Tastings, Private Functions and Self-Guided Tours. The newest addition to the mansion is Libations Lounge, where you can sit back and relax with your favorite beverage in a setting unlike any other.
