The Chagrin Valley Athletic Club was inspired by a similar club in the Miami area, and the property was purchased in 1967. At that time, the club was nothing more than a charming farmhouse in a rural setting. It was then transformed to include locker rooms, a snack bar, tennis courts and concrete-lined swim lake with a beach. In 1992 the club was sold to Jim Rosenberger, who has since renovated the club to add the main lobby, dining and banquet areas, and an indoor pool and fitness center.

We can't say enough great things about CVAC. Our wedding was 6/21/14 and it was absolutely perfect. Our ceremony was held by the outside brook and patio area and was serene and stunning. We had fabulous appetizers and dinner inside and then moved outside for dancing under the stars after dinner. Jane and Kate could not have been more accommodating. No matter what we needed, they were there to handle it. If you are looking for a beautiful venue with great food and amazing service, look no further. They are really the best!!Sent on 06/23/2014

We had our wedding ceremony in CVAC's beautiful garden and reception in the ball room w/a private outdoor veranda. Kate is an exceptional event planner who is quick to respond to questions and offers options and solutions that made planning our wedding easier than I had imagined. If you are looking for a place that goes above and beyond to make your event the best that it can be, don't hesitate to check them out. You will be happy you did! We could not have had a better experience and our guests really enjoyed themselves, too!Sent on 07/11/2019

The Perfect Day
I loved having my wedding at the CVAC. Kate was absolutely fantastic and worked with me on the budget. We received compliments on the food and the overall vibe of the venue. The CVAC is gorgeous and was perfect for our late October wedding. We weren't able to have our ceremony on the grounds due to rain but Kate and her team worked to bring our ceremony inside with no problem. Kate was responsive to my many emails and offered feedback when asked. I emailed her to order food for the bridesmaids the day of the wedding when we arrived at the venue and upon arriving at the venue Kate was bringing in the wraps for the girls to enjoy! They have three suites that can be used to get ready in during your big day. It was great to have the suite so I could hide from guest arriving! I highly recommend the CVAC - you can't go wrong having your wedding at the Chagrin Valley Athletic Club.Sent on 11/15/2018
