Thank you for your thoughts, your prayers, and your support through this difficult time.
On behalf of the Gibson and Pine Manor family and staff, I’d like to express our gratitude for the overwhelming outpouring of support in response to the fire that took place at Pine Manor Estate October 22, 2019. We are extremely grateful and blessed that no one was injured during the event. As most of our guests know, Pine manor is a truly special place filled with a lifelong collection of invaluable fine art, furnishings and historically significant things, however at the end of the day… they are just things. In the end we still have our staff, family and friends safe. Not to mention a ton of amazing memories. The good news is the Gibson family, Pine Manor staff and the city of Carbondale are not the type of folks to sit around long and feel sorry for themselves. We will rebuild and come back from this tragedy stronger than ever! During this time the Pine Manor Estates property as a whole will be fully functional and the other properties will still be available for training, luxury vacation rentals and weddings.
Thank you all for your support. We will keep you posted, and we will be back better than ever, and as soon as possible! — with appreciation, Wes Gibson
