Make Reservations and Check AvailabilityGroup Events and Receptions


Depending on the style of your event, at the Hillsdale House Inn we can accommodate groups up to 80 indoors and even larger groups if you choose to incorporate our outdoor patio and grounds.

Whether a seated dinner in our private dining room, or a stand-up reception throughout the main floor of the Inn, we will work with you to custom design your event. Whatever the style, we can assist with decisions such as catering requirements, arranging entertainment, equipment rentals, decorating, liquor service (we are fully licensed) and florists.

Gatherings take on a unique feel, whether you choose to hold your event indoors in our magnificent circa 1859 Victorian Inn or outdoors on our expansive grounds surrounded by stately trees and our beautiful gardens.

The Private Dining Room offers gracious dining accommodations for up to thirty guests. This room features gleaming antique furnishings, a beautiful hand carved fireplace, large windows providing views of the side gardens, and French doors that open onto a large covered patio. This room cannot be reserved as a private venue unless the three guest rooms in the attached Carriage House are reserved as well.

Should you choose to have a stand-up style reception inside the Inn, we can accommodate up to 80 people. Your guests will have the freedom to circulate throughout the main floor, including the large front parlours and main dining room.

You might also choose to hold your event outdoors, allowing guests to mingle among the gardens, or to take shade under the canopy of the magnificent trees. If you are so inclined, our Croquet Lawn is an excellent location to set up a marquis tent, just in case Mother Nature should decide not to cooperate.

If you envision your next event being a unique experience in a breathtaking country setting, contact us today.
