Retreats / Meetings
The elegant and impressive Brickman Center offers guests three distinct yet connected spaces: the great hall, dining hall, and terrace. Brick and stone pair with towering, high ceilings and exposed beams in the Great Hall to create an ambience of old world distinction, while the open concept of the space provides a sense of modern ease. A wide, grand staircase spills down into the Dining Hall, where the cathedral ceilings and tasteful brick and stone construction continues. A highly versatile space, this area can be arranged to accommodate a wide range of group sizes and catering plans. In warmer weather, the terrace is a delightful location for receptions and cocktail parties. Connected to both the Great Hall and the Dining Hall, the circular lawn is surrounded by a generous swath of meticulously laid bricks, with a low stone wall creating a lookout to the charming meadow just beyond.
A stunning take on multi-use building design, the Doering Center contains three floors of versatile meeting space. Equipped to support your audio/visual needs, each room can also be arranged according to your specifications for group size or presentation style. Natural light filters through abundant glasswork, while remote-controlled shades are at the ready to create video-friendly environments. A LEED gold certified building, the Doering Center boasts environmentally friendly features that keep the modern design in harmony with its surroundings. The lobby is the focal point of the structure, and with the open concept of the floor plan, wedding receptions and cocktail parties alike enjoy the chic ambiance it provides.
