This venue is a hidden gem as I like to call it! Set in a historical part of Staunton, VA; it gives the bride and groom a venue like none other-quaint and romantic . The outside is just as pretty as the inside-great for photography! Brian and his staff are great to work with! Perfect working area for your caterers! Definitely a location to consider when you are looking!
An absolutely gorgeous venue in downtown Staunton! Highly recommend!
