The McNutt House
The first floor of the McNutt House is ideal for a tiny indoor event such as a ladies club meeting, rehearsal dinner, or a social.
Maggie's Hall has an open floor plan consisting of approximately 900 sqm of usable floor space well suited for medium-sized banquets, training, off-site meetings, socials, sweet 16 parties, and events having a DJ. The structure includes a full galley-style kitchen perfect for use as a caterer staging area or buffet line. The "Dutch" door may be closed to hide the kitchen or leave the lower half completed as a server or bartender station. There are two double door entries to the Hall, with the side leading directly into the courtyard. Tables and chairs are included in the rental rate.
If you are planning an outdoor event, you need to look no further. The McNutt House has a lovely terraced courtyard with multiple spots perfect for a garden wedding. A large deck overlooks the gardens and water features shaded by the area's oldest Japanese Magnolia tree. The paths, patios, decks, and gazebo area offer ample sitting areas and mix and mingling space for substantial social events, reunions, retreats, and picnics. BBQ grills and a full kitchen may be made available.
- Pictured is the living room of the McNutt Suite situated at the top of the staircase in the main house. Subject to availability, this suite is ideally suited for use as a Hospitality Suite or as the bride's dressing chamber. Additional suites may be available for use by the groom or out-of-town guests.
- Two fully equipped kitchens (Magill House and Maggie's Hall) and BBQ grills may be made available to keep food warm or prepare anything from hor d'oeuvres to a feast.
