This is the third time I've used this space for an event. It was host to our rehearsal dinner, to a friend's wedding, and now a surprise birthday party. It has excellent event space and 3 rooms for out of town guests. You can't beat it.

This place is amazing. We held a bridal shower/bachelorette party here and the space was perfect! It's spacious, very clean, and there's so much seating for a party. The kitchen had so much space for all of the food/drinks we had. I would 10/10 recommend this space to anybody, for a party, meeting, or just a weekend getaway!

Loved having a location where everyone could be together and hang out! It was a perfect spot from rehearsal dinner to brunch & presents on Sunday morning. I will for sure rent this space again should my other daughters choose to get married in Defiance.
