Why We Like This Place

  • It’s the perfect choice for vintage events. Located just steps from the Delaware River, this family-owned venue is also one of the oldest historic structures in the county.
  • You can celebrate indoors and out. The ballroom now has its own stone-paver patio, complete with a white arbor for ceremonies, manicured landscaping around the border, and evening lighting.
  • Generous wedding packages include a 5-hour top-shelf open bar, award-winning cuisine, a selection of wedding cakes, fresh floral centerpieces, and much more.
