What a unique & beautiful venue! It has an elegant feel, but down to earth. The re-purposed library desk, now cleverly used as their bar, is beautiful. The cozy VIP rooms off the main room are nice and comfortable - perfect for guests who want a more intimate conversation. Above all, the owners and staff are creative, resourceful, friendly and easy to work with.

What a great venue for weddings! Also it's flexible enough to host a biz seminar or big party. Nevada County finally has a larger-scale venue with the Foothills:)
