    Bennett Curtis House Went Beyond Our Expectations

    Very good value and availability to review the details of our event, and most importantly the Bennett Curtis House delivered on those details. Very flexible. Very beautiful outdoor and indoor setting; enjoyed by all. Great value; not sure if there is anywhere else where you could have such a nice wedding reception in such a unique and beautiful place with a modest budget.
