We offer a meeting/event room with french doors that open into a three-season porch and into our large outdoor deck. Extensive gardens complete the stimulating atmosphere. In winter, a large fireplace helps to encourage imaginative thinking.

The interior will comfortably hold 20 seated guests for corporate meetings and 50+ for standing events. Depending upon your group’s particular needs, up to 10 can be accommodated for overnight stays with shared accommodations in our 4 rooms. All rooms must be booked by your group to host an overnight retreat or event.

By booking the entire property, your group benefits from quiet privacy with flexible informal space for full-group meetings and smaller break-out sessions. We have Wi-Fi throughout the building and most outdoor areas and we can help with arrangements for any presentation items you may need.

Whether your retreat or event is a half day, full day, or a multi-day experience, the inn can accommodate your needs. Several intimate common areas to work independently or to meet with colleagues. Let us help plan and schedule your group business meetings or other activities so you can just relax, be productive and most importantly, have some fun.

There are many area attractions that are sure to please your group. Whether your group likes to golf or perhaps practice a bit of teamwork while canoeing, fishing, or horseback riding, we can arrange a curated, memorable and enjoyable experience. We can also arrange a murder mystery evening, a game of paintball, a cooking class, a wine or beer tasting on site or a visit to one of our local wineries or breweries. Guests can relax with a massage provided by our masseuse in their room, or we can arrange a “spa day” at a nearby salon. Please contact us for details.
