Lovely, thank you for posting! Rosecliff looks very beautiful, although I don't like the lover's staircases, the heart shape... :lol:

Yes, I prefer this classic, stately look. And don't get me wrong with the lover's staircase, it's more from this front view that I don't like, but the actual stairs themselves are very pretty, it's just the way the walls have been moulded into a heart shape, the front look that I find a bit funny. :lol:

Wasn't the lovers staircase built for a married couple, and is said to be haunted by the bride?

No. it was just built for a grand entrance because Mrs. Oelrich was the society leader of the time and she just HAD to have a grand entrance :]
