The Conservatory features a panoramic view of the property and ample natural light. Two walls of oversized windows face out towards our forested surroundings, and a symmetrical sky-lit ceiling make this room ideal for daytime events and meetings year-round. The warm tiled flooring and exposed fieldstone in this room also pay homage to our historic background, while retaining all of the comforts of a modern event space.
