Picturesque and breathtaking space. The house is beautiful and the space outside is open and the lake is right there for an added touch. Chuck is absolutely amazing. He is the hostess with the mostess!!! Hospitable, dependable, and kind. The space and service is exactly as described and even better in person. He helped make our Anniversary party picture perfect. Can’t wait to come back and enjoy it again in the future.

We held our annual staff retreat today at this absolutely beautiful venue. Our host, Chuck, was awesome. Super easy to work with and his house is incredibly eclectic with beautiful art and memorabilia every where....and homey at the same time. We will definitely book again! Thank you Chuck for your genuine hospitality and upbeat attitude. 5 stars is really not enough!
Tobias H. booked a video interview for 3 people
I always have an amazing time coming to the Mid Century Modern Estate! Mr Chuck is the best host!! He opened his doors for me and my team to come in and do some promo and interview videos!! He even helped out with the interview by asking me “where do I see myself in 5 years as far as my artistry is concerned” We will definitely be coming back
Tobias H. booked a photo shoot for 5 people
My experience at the MidCentury Modern Estate/Lakefront was absolutely amazing! Such a beautiful home and the host Mr Chuck is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met! It was an honor to meet him! If you don’t know him, he is a LEGEND!!! His property was so neat and clean! The house is spacious and creative! Gives music artists like myself room to explore and work! I will definitely be returning to the MidCentury modern estate for a album release party and/or music video

Chuck is an all star who is an amazing host and an amazing person! You’ll be happy to have your event at this location because something special will be made!
Melissa C. booked an event for 20 people
The setting was pure perfection for our graduation brunch. Chuck is always the consummate host, ready with a pair of scissors or extra tablecloth as needed (we needed both!). The grounds are so large that guests can wander and we had set out yard games, corn hole and bocce, for everyone to take advantage of the expansive waterfront space. INCREDIBLE for photos... just can't be beat. Highly recommend for intimate gatherings of distinction!
E&N L. booked a production for 60 people
