Comfortable, beautifully decorated, very clean. Used the living areas for my daughter's bridal shower. Hosted about 30 family/friends. Spacious kitchen, perfect for hosting a party. Fully furnished kitchen.

We really enjoyed the space, it was very accommodating and beautiful. Our guest speaker had addaquate space and most all of the equipment for his presentation was available by the facility. We would recommend the space to anyone!

We stayed at the Second Story for my son and fiances wedding weekend. We also used it for their rehearsal dinner. It was perfect! Beautiful decorating, and so much better to come back to after the wedding than a hotel room. Thank you so much Sylvia for making our stay better than we ever imagined!

We used this venue for a local reception for our daughter who had been married out of state. The Second Story is absolutely beautiful, and it was perfect for our needs. Sylvia was extremely helpful and also recommended a caterer. That service worked out wonderfully as well. There was plenty of room for everyone to visit, and the decor is... More

We considered getting a couple of rooms at one of the hotels in town, but I had heard from my niece that we should check out The Second Story. She had been there once... More

The Second Story is a beautiful place to stay whether it's for a short visit, a party, or an extended stay. My bridal shower was held there and there was plenty of room for all of my guests to move around comfortably. The kitchen was amazing, roomy enough for us to have a taco bar for the shower! We also... More

My husband and I stayed at the 2nd story the night of our wedding. It was so relaxing. Everything was very clean and welcoming. There was even a bucket of champagne in the refrigerator waiting on us when we got there. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a luxury and relaxing place to stay. We were sad we didn't...

We used The Second Story as our "after reception reception" venue. The full kitchen was great to keep drinks cold and the food contained. There were many different things for our guests to do such as: pool, poker/cards, and Foosball. The seating was very comfortable and there was plenty for the amount of people that we invited up. For us,... More

This loft is absolutely breath taking! The light pores in and makes you feel at home. They had every dish, towel and piece of furniture imaginable and really makes you feel at peace while you are there.
