My cousin's wedding was at the Glen Sanders on August 27. Hurricane Irene was due to arrive that night into the following morning so we knew we might run into some weather related issues. Despite this, the wedding was great. The space and grounds are beautiful. Food was really good and everyone had a great time.
A bunch of the family was staying in the apartments behind the mansion. The accommodations were great. Each apartment was a two-bedroom with a full kitchen, living room, lots of closet space, and a balcony.
The power went out the morning after the wedding at about 9am. Then we found out all the roads in the area were closed due to flooding and downed trees. The area behind the mansion was completely inundated and caused a lot of property damage. We were stuck there all day and ended up leaving the following morning.
The staff was AMAZING. I can't say enough about them. They comped our stay for the night we were stuck. The main building was running on backup power and they let us hang out in there so we didn't have to sit in the dark in the apartments. Then they even prepared hot food for everyone while we were waiting out the weather. They didn't have to do any of this. They had other events going on and went out of their way to make our situation more comfortable.
I hope they recover from the damage quickly because it was extensive. I wish them all the best and would definitely recommend.
