Three Pines

510 W. Sheridan Rd - Petersburg

Three Pines, a beloved Petersburg landmark, is an Italianate-style mansion built in 1875 for Senator Edward Laning.  It has been restored beautifully and boasts 8 suites that can sleep 26. 

When you visit Three Pines, you will find it holds a place of composure on the top of the hill where Sheridan Road curves to preserve the beauty of the setting. The central hallway opens to large rooms, their ceilings ornamented with elaborate plaster work, and the suites and common areas have deep fire- places framed by marble mantels. Superb carpentry is evident in the walnut carved newel post, and in the walnut woodwork and staircase which extends to the third floor. You can find photos of the property here.
