The Second Story was an amazing place in the heart of Defiance. The furnishings, decor and everything about it was top-notch! The perfect place for us girls to have an over-night relaxing girls night out.

This was a perfect location for this years company party. We had 33 people and plenty of room. We had "heavy" appetizers catered by The Black Lantern, which was also a great choice. Everyone was impressed with The Second Story and thought it was stunning. We only rented the common area and not the bedrooms. Sylvia the owner was very... More

An absolute beautiful place to have an up-scale party. The kitchen and dining area is a huge area making it easy to set up a party. The whole upstairs is expansive making it easy for guests to move around and mingle. There are also cozy spots with a fireplace to have small talk. Everything was spotless. All the guests were...

Our youngest daughter was just married and we chose to have all the festivities at The Second Story. It was a beautiful wedding with about forty guests. The convenience of the reception in the same place was pleasant for everyone. Our meal was catered by Sweetwater Chophouse. All the food was set up on two new islands in a kitchen... More

Had a wonderful time with my Mom, sisters, and 2 daughters. We enjoyed yoga , massages and quality time together. Hope to make it an annual stay. Felt like we were on vacation in the beautiful loft style accommodations with all the amenities of an upscale hotel, but with the room of a condo.

This facility is absolutely beautiful! Tastefully decorated with a refined ambiance, you'll not be disappointed with your experience here. The facility is always spotless with lovely-smelling toiletries at your disposal. We've held several board meetings here, and everyone is pleased with the facility. From a planners perspective, there is ease in coordinating your events with the owner, who is very... More

The Second Story is a great place to host a rehearsal dinner or any party. It is very well maintained/clean and the space is very comfortable. Everyone enjoyed playing pool and foosball or just relaxing on the couch talking with friends.
