In the early 1970's, owner & founder Catherine Doornberg with her daughter Suzanne converted the Manor from a Private Residence into a senior’s home. At that time residents of the Manor were charged $10.00 per day which included housekeeping, meals, security, & the opportunity live in such a grand home. The Manor could could occupy up to 24 residents.
In the 1990's Phil & Gisela Aston purchased the Manor from Catherine Doornberg the owner of the Seniors Home and converted it into an Inn with Restaurant. By the mid to late 90’s the Restaurant was closed and the Manor was downsized to a Bed and Breakfast.
In April 2002 it was purchased by Michael Dwyer & David Marshall, or "The Manor Boyz" as the folks of Perth fondly refer to them.
The Partners restored, renovated, and applied the concept of Boutique Hotel to the Manor.
Offering on-site Event Planning for Corporate and Special Events made perfect sense for this magnificent venue.
They have installed ensuite private baths in all guest rooms, as well as direct dial phones with private voicemail, Televisions, CD & DVD players, wireless internet, fine linens, and all the amenities you currently enjoy today.
The Manor and grounds continue to be restored, and resemble very closely the design Mrs. Stewart had originally intended.
In the spring and summer month’s varieties of antique and unusual flowers bloom once again.
