Event Venue & Conference Center Near Mt Shasta

We offer event planning and our historic Great Room is perfect for retreats, weddings, conferences, or exhibits. At approximately 4,000 square feet, the space can accommodate up to 150 people. Painted majolica green, with 12’ wood ceilings, central heat/AC and original Douglas fir flooring; this space is perfect for any event you throw.
