The Shelks meeting room is designed to comfortably host groups of up to 75 people. This room is well suited for cocktail parties, catered lunch meetings, training, classes and smaller group events. We can arrange the room around banquet tables, “card” tables or with classroom style seating. There is plenty of wall space for projection.
The tropical backyard garden is ideal for an outdoor wedding or moonlight cocktail party… We can help you design the space to accommodate whatever you have in mind. And, you have the peace of mind that your event can be planned to move inside, so your big day will not be ruined by a rain storm.
