Host Your Event With Us

Krippendorf Lodge features exceptional indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate groups of eight to 220. An expansive stone terrace remains protected from the elements from spring through autumn with a custom-designed awning allowing for views into the adjacent forest. A stunning, covered porch wraps around three sides of the home and offers additional space for many different event options. Several wood-paneled rooms can be flexibly joined together as one open area or remain as separate, more intimate enclosures.

Seating layouts and serving method (buffet or sit down) are two factors that impact the number of guests that can be comfortably accommodated.

Built in 1900 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011, Krippendorf Lodge is sited on more than 1,000 acres of spectacular forests, fields, streams and ponds. Corporate guests, in particular, enjoy the option of including time for a relaxing hike through the woods as part of a business retreat. From enchanting spring wildflowers to the dazzling colors of autumn, the ever-changing beauty of nature will provide your guests with an unforgettable event.
