                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We fell in love with Greystone Manor the moment we saw it! It had been a lifelong dream of mine to have a place where people could gather and feel loved. I invented Bumpits hair volumizers, was blessed more than I ever imagined, and was finally able to make our dreams come true. And hopefully yours. This is the place! This graceful place made me feel blessed it is so serene and beautiful and restful. You all have been prayed for in advance. Come, rest and feel loved. You deserve it! XOXOX

                      Why the Owner Chose Cambria:
                      This property was in my heart before I ever even entered its doors. Upon entering, I knew I was home, and would share it with hundreds of others. After over 3 years of working on Greystone and getting it ready, we have donated Greystone Manor for several dozens of churches, retreats, friends and groups vacationing here and just enjoyed being a blessing to others as God has been so good to us. When you visit Greystone, you will understand the 'why'. Its too amazing not to share it with you!!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      Authentic early Cambrian home is decorated beautifully, quiet comfortable space, the only one of its kind to sleep 20 in Cambria! Huge graceful Oaks with moss hanging from them hover over and all around the grounds. The walkways are enchanted. My imagination and life was forever changed in this moment I approached and saw the 90 year old sign that read 'Greystone Manor'.
