We are an ideal destination retreat venue for 4 to 14 participants, and with spouse, significant other, or roommate sharing a same room, cottage or cabin our capacity increases to 28. While we can lodge up to 28, our meeting room capacity is 14. We are an all season, year-round boutique hotel and country inn open 365 days a year. At no time is the Inn empty of lodging and dining guests unless we close reservations to the general public for a special event such as yours.
Due to its scale and size, in all cases requiring the use of indoor spaces, when you have a retreat at the inn with over 14 people, the Inn becomes de-facto your private facility for a private event, and we do not take reservations for non-retreat guests for lodging or dining.
