60th birthday fun in a snowy Ohio

Nick and I just returned from a trip to Cleveland/Newbury Ohio where we checked out vendors for client Carl's 60th birthday party.
We're working with Carl and his wife Pam for his party on Bainbridge in August but they are also hosting one in Ohio where his family is. We flew in with blizzard-like weather last week and drove about a mile east to the absolutely charming township of Newbury.
Carl's party will be held at the historical Punderson Manor (which is rumored to be haunted) where guests will dine, listen to music, enjoy the summertime surroundings; a lake, hiking trails, etc., and a truly unique atmosphere. We also poked around nearby townships like Chagrin Falls and explored fun little shops and restaurants and enjoyed a tasting at Punderson's Cherry Dining Room, tasting a local walleye fish entree and many other delicious morsels.
We really enjoy our trip but were happy to be home after a 4 degree morning!
Here are a few photos from Punderson - more to come after the party in June.
