Valerie T. booked a team meeting for 12 people
This was a great space for our team retreat and first meeting with some new colleagues. Calm and natural space that was perfect for our needs. Only issue is that wifi is a little weak which required a little navigation from us for looping someone in on Zoom consistently. Hope to come back however.

Elike T. booked a rehearsal dinner for 40 people
We had a rehearsal dinner at the Good Neighbor. This venue was selected by our son and his fiancée who live locally. We live in NY so we expected the coast to coast planning process to be challenging. However Dana and Grady completely took that weight off our shoulders. Their advice regarding set up and logistics made our party a spectacular success! They are kind, thoughtful and accommodating and go out of their way to ensure that your event matches your vision. I would highly recommend utilizing this space. Aaron was a godsend in helping us manage during the dinner. Just an amazing team! Thank you all so much for helping us create such a memorable event!

Such an incredible space! Our guests loved the entire atmosphere and raved about the environment -- it feels like a secret hidden treasure :) The staff was so helpful and Dana was such a pleasure to work with -- she helped us find a date that worked and accommodated all our needs!
Sylvia C. booked a graduation event for 50 people
Super cute little space. Everybody commented on how cute it was. The owners were so helpful in helping me unload/load my car and moving furniture around to where I needed it. They were on standby the whole time to help with the trash or anything else, even sunscreen! The only difficult part is parking. It can be a little challenging to find spaces around the neighborhood and he must pay your meter. But other than that I highly recommend this space…and don’t forget to shop on your way out!

Alex D. booked an event for 16 people
Dana was a wonderful host, and we loved her space! It’s beautiful, with lots of plants and good tables and chairs. We had a small wedding, which required setting up a kitchen. Dana was incredibly helpful and took care of everything. On the day of the event her helper, Aaron, was really helpful and took care of everything that we needed. It was a big undertaking, and they were really helpful every step of the way. The space is beautiful, and very customizable!
