Randy M. booked a work retreat for 21 people
Mimi and the whole staff were wonderful to deal with. They were responsive and dedicated to ensuring our staff retreat was a success. The space is beautiful, loaded with good A/V and offered spaces like the outdoor terrace for breakouts. I would highly recommend having your next event here!
