  • “First, Martha is GREAT. Our event was a rehearsal dinner ~ 50 guests. Great venue with indoor and outdoor space. Indoor space included a private sitting room where the bride and groom presented gifts to wedding party, a large foyer and entry, and ball room which easily sat 50 with additional ~1,000 sq. ft. of dance area. Buffet (cater) was set in a large room that adjoined the outdoor decks AND ball room! Now to the outside!!! Wrap around porch and shaded lawns allowed guests to spread out (we had GREAT weather). Rocking chairs included!! Parking is extensive and “formal” look in front of house lawns as you drive up. All catering vehicles park behind house so pictures are very nice. One more note about Martha! She recommended Caffe’ Luna as the caterer. Great choice and they do many functions at the property and thus know the set up. We were thrilled!!”
