It’s been a while since I’ve written a “Save This House” post featuring one that deserves to be rescued, but the minute I saw this great old Second Empire-style manor in Maryland on Old House Dreams, I knew it was a perfect candidate.
It has actually already been rescued from demolition, having been safely moved to this new location.

I’ve gotten a few questions about this one lately from readers asking me if it was ever rescued (it had been condemned at one point). The answer is yes! It was moved to higher ground and given a top-to-toe reno to look like the sets from the movie that made it famous. It’s open as an inn again.
