Whether your group is from a church, a business association seeking a casual venue for an informal staff meeting or getaway, or a group seeking a site for a yoga or meditation intensive, Venture is happy to host you!
Our staff is small and because most of our guests are happy to self-cater and do a few housekeeping tasks before they depart, we can keep our rates low. When you contact Venture to choose dates for your event, we'll also talk about the services available at Venture and how we can work together to stay within your budget.
