Spaces

Our property has a variety of spaces to hold your event in. The Silo can accommodate up to 28 people. A smaller group of 18 people fits nicely into our Alcove area off the Dining Room. Combine the Tavern and Restaurant to host up to 100 people. A dinner can begin with cocktails on the patio and move into the Dining Room for a sit-down affair or be more informal with a buffet in the Tavern. We will work with you to assure the spaces chosen are just right for both your group and budget.
