If you are looking for a small and affordable facility with a beautiful view, this is the place! This environmentally conscious "Green Building" is intended to be a model because of its use of recycled materials and energy efficiency. This building offers a cozy atmosphere for meetings, retreats, weddings, and receptions. Featuring a 900 square foot multipurpose room, the center is heated, air conditioned, and has a fully furnished kitchen and rustic wood burning stove. The program center also contains a carpeted loft and the Sugar Shack, either of which provides an excellent area for additional meeting space. The building contains folding tables and chairs along with an audio/video system. The center is fully accessible for persons with disabilities. Rental of the center includes use of the surrounding grounds and parking lot.
