Knowing how important a good meal complements any event, the Center’s recent renovations focused on upscaling our dining area.  Now having the appearance of a nice café, guests can enjoy both a delicious meal as well as take in the pastoral views outside the many windows. 

Along with improving the ambiance, the center has expanded the width and depth of its culinary talents.  Among the staff two have culinary arts degrees, another has experience catering over 1,000 weddings and receptions.  Our current Executive Chef has a diversity of national and international experiences, from owning his own restaurant to being a personal chef for a sailing regatta team.  Whether you’re looking for menus to incorporate into your weekend retreat or a high-end banquet, we’ve the talent to help transform your dining experience from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Guests often choose a break-out snack in addition to the regular meals.  A favorite is our delicious hot, blueberry and cinnamon scones, but we have other delights to enhance the day.  Or maybe consider allowing us to help you prepare some gourmet s’mores in the evening by a crackling bonfire. 

Our menus have a variety of options, and are renewed regularly to keep our repeat guests delighted by the offerings. See the link to a few sample menus to give you an idea of the variety of choices each diner will have.  If you have a menu preference, please let us know.  We will try to accommodate your wishes but available options will depend upon our meal rotation and the other groups present. 

Special events have become our specialty. Elegant banquets, Christmas parties, Quinciñeras, and wedding receptions are just a few examples of how you could make use of our beautiful facilities and talented staff.  To make for a perfect event we also allow alcoholic beverages, but additional liability insurance will be needed.  We would be happy to discuss your banquet plans and how you might make use of our talent, experience, venue and lodging.
