We rented the grove building for a teacher professional development. The building as stunning. The architecture is beautiful. Shay was very helpful with anything we needed. It was a pleasure working with Shay, and the venue is a little hidden gem.

Rheema C. booked a training for 30 people
The Grove Building was an amazing space! Very accommodating, the conference room had everything we needed. Shay and Bernie made sure we had coffee, hot water, and a variety of teas throughout our training. They both helped us set up and close out each day! The space is accessible and the parking lot was a plus. We used it to park and for breakout sessions.
Terra M. booked a meeting for 20 people
This was a beautiful space for holding our event. We rented the room on a Saturday to teach a class to 15 Students and it was perfect. The room was very spacious, clean and quiet. There is a nice sized kitchen connected to the room which was helpful for keeping our drinks refrigerated throughout the day. The bathrooms were all very tidy and the two gentlemen who assisted us in setting up for our meeting were extremely helpful and kind. The communication with the building's Manager, Shay, was exceptional. We will absolutely be returning to the Grove Building to host our future meetings!
Ellen J. booked a workshop for 50 people
Wonderful staff in a great building. Participants loved the space and the nearby restaurants. We held a meditation retreat, and so there was a drawback: there was sometimes a fair amount of street noise.
