I was looking at Sylvan Dale as a venue for a conference. Words can hardly express how wonderful Ge was to work with. Helpful, understanding, and willing to work with us on the bid. I would highly recommend this venue. With such a wonderful, knowledgeable staff, it's a jewel. Not to mention the beautiful sights!

What a nice group of people from the front desk to those in the stables tending the horses. The animals were in good spirits and seemed well treated and happy. Highly recommend... More
