HOW MANY PEOPLE DOES YOUR SPACE ACCOMMODATE AND WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
Our indoor event hall can hold up 120 guests comfortably inside for formal sit-down dining events or weddings. In the warmer months we fold open our large glass doors so we can expand to our covered porch to accommodate 150 guests.
We offer the venue and an onsite Events Director. A list of furnishings that come with your package will be offered upon inquiry.
We have a shared parking lot with the private Yacht Club members and boat slip renters. We encourage guests to limit the number of vehicles they bring. All event vendors will be asked to park across the street at our Annex. We have the option of overflow parking next door at the public Ferry Beach Park, which is mostly used during daytime hours into early evening in the summer.
CAN YOU CREATE A SMALL, INTIMATE SETTING AT YOUR VENUE?
Yes! Our event hall can hold up to 120 guests indoors, however, we can change the feel with how tables are arranged and make it feel more intimate. We have had smaller events and love to host rehearsal dinners! Our covered porch is another option, which faces Lake Charlevoix and offers a more relaxed setting.
