Memories are Made at Montefiori
Whether you're planning a Wedding, Corporate Event, Banquet or Party, you'll find an abundance of venue options from which to choose at Montefiori. Michelina's Pavilion is situated amidst a garden paradise. Its secluded location and private entrance feature two spectacular waterfalls connected by a rippling stream. A rustic, arched bridge and a spacious, uniquely designed gazebo complete the picture. This Pavilion seats up to 400 guests, and the custom sound system can be appreciated both inside and outside the venue as guests stroll on brick walkways or linger to appreciate an intimate moment at any of the countless secluded spots throughout the grounds.
The Villa at Montefiori is scheduled to open in July 2006. This "grand manor" house is currently under renovation, with seven distinctive rooms featuring a collection of exquisite antiques from the original Montefiori collection. The wine cellar, humidor, and Terrace room are just a few of the numerous elegant offerings at The Villa. Each area can be booked separately or together, depending on the size of your party.
The Main Pavilion is available for booking dates as of August 2006. You'll marvel at the views of cascading waterfalls and secluded seating amidst the oak groves and verandas near a sparkling stream. The Magnolia Garden is our hidden gem, offering some of the most striking views at Montefiori. From its position at the water's edge you can savor Montefiori Falls, with incomparable views of The Villa and Grand Gazebo.
An additional 11 acre meadow, soon to be completed, will easily accommodate carnivals, festivals, and corporate picnics. We can facilitate anything you can imagine. Bring us your ideas and we'll make them a reality.
"A spectacular place to hold your event. We were amazed by the beauty and attention to detail. Our wedding photos are so great, every shot had a gorgeous backdrop!"
