Why We Like This Place

  • The Dane Estate exudes fairy-tale charm. Built in 1891, the building is set on 60 acres of wooded land and features “candle snuffer” turrets, leaded-glass windows and the use of local materials such as red sandstone. A circular cobblestone drive at the front is an ideal spot for photos.
  • Each space has something special to offer. The Foyer, with its polished red marble fireplace, is a spacious place to welcome guests. The Moncrief Room features carved fruited and matchbook oak paneling and period-style furnishings, and is ideal for a cocktail hour, small reception or ceremony. The Founder’s Hall boasts a carved double staircase that makes for a dramatic entrance, while doors open out onto the Founder’s Lawn, perfect for an outdoor ceremony. All rooms are paneled in rich woods and lend a sense of opulence to your event.
  • The in-house culinary team can provide anything you like, from breakfasts to buffets, luncheons to luaus, and drinks to dinners. They’ll realize your vision with style, elegance and an emphasis on sustainable cuisine.
