Tom D. booked a birthday party for 25 people
This place is amazing for parties! Very unique, beautiful and memorable experience with great accommodations. The owner Ruth is very helpful with planning, recommending catering, setting up the room, receiving the band and caterers and being flexible with last minute extension of the party. It was a perfect event !

From the moment I saw images of "Opré Glasso" - I thought that this could likely be the space for my party - charming, inviting, "warm." When I visited the space and met Ruth, I knew it was perfect. It is large enough for dancing, small group intimate gatherings throughout the space, great people-watching from the stage-like area - a lovely ambiance. Ruth was very accommodating and communicative, answering questions readily, adjusting things as the needs of my event changed. Dickeyville itself is charming, but the "magic" of the space goes to the synergistic engagement of this building's historic preservation, aesthetic upgrades (kitchens, bathroom), and definitely Ruth's touch. I know my birthday celebration was as lovely and enjoyable as it was, very much in part, because of this place/space.
Samantha K. booked a production for 10 people
We had a great time here. Ruth let us be flexible with schedule, which was crucial (her flexibility allowed us to be ahead of our packed schedule), and she gave us the space we needed on location, while still being easily accessible and quickly responsive to our needs. She also very accurately described the space before we arrived, which was crucial, since we were an out of town crew and unable to scout the spot in person beforehand. Other highlights include plenty of parking around the house, a very quiet location on a quiet road, and plenty of space. Would definitely book again – Ruth was great to work with.
