Lune’s origins begin as a country house that was rescued from the fog of history. Originally built in 1860, for the past 160 years its grand rooms served as both a private residence and a place for lavish entertaining. To enter these grounds today is to walk among past dignitaries and bon vivants alike. We gather at Lune once more, as they did so long ago, to remember the moments and memories they left behind and to create our very own, under the moonlight. The property is designed to host intimate, private gatherings.

8 Phases Of The Moon


The Garden

Outside our doors is a place of untamed natural beauty. Of wildflowers and grassy fields. Left mostly untouched, gather from late spring to early fall from the avenue to our moss-covered stone paths, pond and pergola, all framed by ancient canopied evergreens and maples. Suitable for gatherings up to 100 guests.

The avenue that leads to Lune is intersected only by our historic stonewalled fountain. The fountain runs from spring to late fall, and like the house, is modeled in classic Italianate style. An enchanting place to gather from late spring onwards, revel among the fountain gardens and towering pines. Suitable for gatherings of up to 40 seated guests.

The light side of the moon is our airier half. Two spaces are bridged by a pair of sweeping grand arches and in the daytime natural light abounds. At dusk, shadows dance across milky frescoed walls, set aglow by custom-designed sconces and twin fireplaces with original Italian marble from 1860. Suitable for gatherings of up to 40 seated guests.

Only half the moon is visible from Earth and the dark side of Lune envelopes guests within its inky black frescoed walls. A fireplace with black marble mined in Italy during the late nineteenth century, custom-designed sconces and a larger-than-life gilded mirror cast dynamic shadows as day turns to night. Suitable for gatherings of up to 28 seated guests.

Between our light side and our dark side - and in the centre of it all - is our Davide Groppi Moon Pendant. Floating above this intimate hallway. Hushed conversations across candlelit tables feel especially spellbinding with the moon above our hand-sculpted barreled ceiling that illuminates from within. Suitable for gatherings of up to 20 seated guests.
