Definitely the hottest venue in Grand Rapids this past year, and looking to be hot for a while! Excellent location, and a really great looking facility. Plenty of space both upstairs and down!

Heritage Hill String Quartet Heritage Hill String Quartet Wedding Musicians

This is a great venue for a wedding. Our string quartet has performed at The Cheney Place mulitple times. The space has a warm feeling with lots of light and rich hardwood floors. The place settings for the latest reception were just beautiful -upscale shabby chic. Good parking too - much easier than in the center of downtown Grand Rapids.
