Our Mountain View conference room accommodates up to 100 people for meetings, dinners, banquets or other group activities. Our resort's Main Lodge meeting room is centrally located and works well for groups of up to 50 people. Both conference spaces can be customized to fit your group needs, with a variety of audio visual equipment available to help make your meeting a success. Our larger townhomes are a great location to hold informal small meetings, or breakouts. Plan a team building event on the lawn or our large courtyard and enjoy the dramatic views of Moose Mountain.
Motivational speakers, trainers and team building professionals are always welcome. We'll be glad to work with you and set our meeting facilities as needed for your specialists.
