Located just south east of Bowling Green, this beautiful property overlooks a 10,000-acre manmade lake and rolling hills.

The Highland Room features rich wood paneling, exposed wood tresses, skylights and abundant natural light through two walls of windows. The two lower level meeting rooms open to the patio of the park’s swimming pool.

Stonehaven Gallery partners with the local Art Guild to display local artists’ paintings, and features windows that offer views of the lake and pool. This unique space is a natural setting for meetings and events.
