Now featuring a beautiful new outdoor patio of our Banquet Room, finished this May just in time for Wedding season. It's a great location for outdoor cocktail receptions and gatherings!

Our property features a number of facilities, both indoors and outdoors, great for events of all sizes.

The Banquet Hall: Our 200 seat banquet facility host's wide board floors, exposed post and beams, and single paned windows that were the aesthetic style of these old colonial homes. It features wall sconce, & pole lighting to give the room a classic and intimate feeling. This is our primary facility for weddings, conferences & events.

The Banquet Hall Patio: The two east facing exits of the banquet hall step onto our brand new stone patio. With its wide stones and manicured gardens, it's a beautiful outdoor location for any gathering. Take a step off the patio and you are surrounded by the properties gardens and stonewalls; it's a perfect place for outdoor cocktail receptions or smaller dinners. Or bring in a tent and have your entire reception outside under the stars.

The Dining Room: Our breakfast room, it hosts seating for up to sixty guests. East facing windows fill the room with morning light; the room is surrounded by gardens and is a wonderful location for smaller dinners, luncheons, brunches and cocktail receptions.

The Dining Room Patio: Off the dining room, the patio sits next to our outdoor water fountain and is surrounded by manicured gardens. This location is great for smaller, intimate cocktail receptions, and is often used for outdoor dining during breakfast service.

The Carriage House: The Carriage House was once what the name implies, the room where they stored carriages in the Old Barn of the house. It is now the common area for the Inn, and hosts a hand laid basket weave stone floor and walls decorated with antique tools. It features a 60" television, a wood stove, a variety of sofas and armchairs, and a bar station. Just off the banquet room, it's a great extension for wedding and banquet guests to use for cocktail and bar services, or for smaller gatherings that would prefer seating with couches and chairs, rather than table seating. Its also where we serve Afternoon Tea & Scones daily for our guests.

Break Out Rooms: We are able to convert many of our guestrooms into meeting rooms, great for smaller meetings or break out rooms during larger conferences.
