For this leg of our tour hosted by La Tavola Fine Linen we’d like to introduce you to a place that you’ve probably never heard of: Sylvan Manor.  Sylvan Manor (or Sylvan Lake Manor) is a private estate situated eight miles above St. Helena in Angwin.  Driving out to this property set in the woods makes you feel like you are leaving civilization behind.  It has extensive, beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding a traditional Bavarian manor house.  We imagine stringing hundreds of market lights and lanterns above the lawn next to the house to create a romantic, storybook setting. 

Besides the beauty of this property, want to know the best thing about Sylvan Manor?  When you book this venue, you are automatically given two days of unlimited use of the property, including lodging in a cute cottage for up to 8 guests.  With two days at your disposal, why not use the grounds for a rehearsal picnic the afternoon before your wedding?  With the cottage right there, you can spend the night and wake up well-rested for your big day.

If you love secluded, romantic venues, the quaint charm of the Bavarian manor, or just the convenience of on-site lodging, Sylvan Manor is well worth looking into!  In the next installment of our tour, we’ll be visiting a winery that has gorgeous spaces both inside and out.
