The central ballroom is open-plan, creating a sense of boundless space with high cedar-clad ceilings, minimalist décor, and wrap-around windows.

Beautiful venue for a wedding reception

The setting was beautiful for some of the wedding pictures by the water. The ballroom was perfect for a Covid reception. The staff was more than knowledgeable and helpful in planning. I loved being able to see all the pictures of past events. This helped with decorating ideas. My only complaint is the alcohol service. It is too expensive. We had a problem with having to buy all that alcohol and not be reimbursed for all the extra wine, etc that was left over. In our case, we had a lot left over. It made us wonder how many times all that wine has been paid for again and again from other events.
