Leigh was very responsive to my inquiries and was quite the gracious host. The space was as advertised and the staff enjoyed having a day in a more contemporary setting. We had the first part of our staff retreat in the space which included working a bit, playing some games, and having lunch.
Leigh's space was perfect for our production. She was wonderful to work with, knowledgeable about the area and would recommend using her and her space to anyone.
