Swannanoa Mansion

Swannanoa Castle ~ The Lost Haunted Home on the Hill
Pond at Swannanoa Mansion Atop Afton Mountain ~ Virginia

This shows the pond with the beautiful old steps around it. They are now in terrible disrepair, and you travel at your own risk.

Stay tuned for more pictures of my two visits to the mansion. These include a bell tower, a gorgeous stained glass window, a signed Tiffany chandelier, carved woodwork....and the list goes on and on.

This post is linked with Weekend Reflections.

  4. I can't wait to see more, I love this stuff. The steps look good from here, but I do not doubt they are in bad shape.

  5. This is promising, Genie... I like the look of the stone and the interesting structure! (Don't know if I'll be able to access blogger from China next week, though. Take care!)

  6. Even the beautiful homes and grounds of the rich crumble if not taken of!

  8. lovely reflection and colour in the pond - really nice photo Genie. Girl, I do not know how you travel everyday and bring a new photo to us or sometimes several photos. You are indeed a most busy girl and very talented. Love your photos.

  9. As I look at this wall, it reminds me of the one at the Biltmore Home; this is beautiful.
