I loved having my baby shower in this space. It was open, bright and clean. Because of the amount of people in the space, including the caterer who was cooking onsite, the space did get really warm. However, it's understood that this is an older house and the AC doesn't work like it would in a brand new space. Regardless, everything was amazing. I'd host here again.
I booked this venue for my husband's surprise birthday party. Throughout the whole process, Christiane and her team were very quick to respond to any inquiry and were very accommodating and willing to help with anything. The guests all had a great time and many remarked about how unique and charming the space was.
Excellent space to shoot at! Christiane was super helpful and quick to reply throughout the whole process.
The space was so nice and open. It was the perfect venue for our intimate dinner and Christiane was super nice. We would rent again!
I hosted my sister's baby shower here and it was absolutely perfect for the occasion! The space was exactly as pictured. It was beautiful and clean, all the furniture was available for use and for us to arrange it however we wanted. We had 16 people and the atmosphere was great for a baby shower - so intimate, relaxed and friendly. Every guest complimented us on finding such a unique venue. We brought everything with us that we would need for our party, but there were plenty of amenities and items available in the kitchen that we could have used as well. Christiane was so helpful and the whole process could not have been any easier.
Christiane was incredibly easy to work with. The space was exactly as advertised. It was such a great space to host my lunch and learn. I will be using this space again for sure!
I used the space for my baby shower. We were able to fit 40 guests comfortably and everyone enjoyed the space. I would recommend this venue to anyone.
This space is superb! Christiane was wonderful, friendly and helpful. The space is beautiful with a very fresh rustic feel. It was our first pop-up shop event and she was fantastic with giving us advice on marketing from her many years of experience. I would highly recommend this space to anyone that is looking for a unique event space, in a beautiful location, easy access by car and ttc and overall a host that goes beyond your expectations.
