Exchange vows on our grounds or on our spacious stone patio, both with stunning views of Cayuta Lake. Ceremonies can also be planned for the historic Lawrence Chapel, which is adjacent to our property and a short walk away.


Host your reception in our beautiful post-and-beam banquet room, which opens onto a stone patio with spectacular lakeside views. From May through October, the patio is covered by a canopy and the banquet room is air-conditioned. Our spaces can be used for dining, dancing, and cocktails in all weather conditions.

The banquet room seats up to 150 guests, with additional space available on the tented patio for cocktails and dancing. The reception space is furnished with mahogany Chiavari chairs and a variety of table sizes. Exact seating arrangements can be specialized to your preferences.

Bar Service

We provide a professional and customizable bar service for all events. You will have the flexibility to choose from an assortment of beverage options and tailor the service to your preferences. We maintain wine and beer lists that cover a variety of tastes and budgets, but we are also happy to accommodate requests for special wines, beers, or signature cocktails.

Our staff is professional, cheerful, and welcoming, and we work hard to provide your guests with memorable service in a responsible setting.
