Cornerstone Manor


During our stay in Middletown, we were privileged to be one of the first families to stay in the newly restored Cornerstone Manor or as the kids call it "The Mansion", and appropriately so.

Built in 1861, Cornerstone Manor (or 68 Cornerstone Manor, with 68 being its address on Main Street) is a 7,123 sq ft. beautifully restored home downtown. That puts you right in the pulseline of Middletown's revitalization district & perfectly sandwiched between the Swire Inn Restaurant & Rolling Mill Brewing Company Microbrewery.

As we approached the Manor you could instantly see the amount of care that was put into it's restoration.  Facing the street, the front of the house has a huge full size bay window that the kids loved and used as their own stage for the passerby's on the street.

The home sits on a corner lot with a fenced in 20, car parking lot which was just big enough for the Tank (I kid).  Taking full advantage of the corner, behind the home, is a beautifully-manicured backyard that was more than enough room for the kids to run around full speed with their kites in tow or to toss the football back-and-fourth.  

At night, we all enjoyed the cool breeze from the spacious 2nd floor balcony, while taking in the relaxing vibe of the city below.
