Downeast Meeting & Banquet Facilities ~ Events by the Lake

Our main floor Banquet Room is 56’x 30” and accommodates 175 individuals in theater-style seating. For banquet seating, there is room for 100. Day or night, in any season, the large windows overlooking the lake and lawns contribute to the open, airy feeling of the space. A ramp and two additional exits make this room accessible for all. Two restrooms are located on this floor.

The top floor Meeting Room is a spacious 33’x 40’ that comfortably seats 50 at lecture tables or in a theater-seating arrangement. Large windows provide views of the lake and lawns as well as ventilation and natural light. Parabolic lensed overhead lighting is easy on the eyes and provides excellent visibility. Audio-visual equipment is available for all your presentation needs. There are two exits for easy access and two restrooms are available on this floor. Sorry, this area is not handicap accessible.

Our ground level Kitchen and Lounge is 40’ x 33' and has two exits, one of which opens directly to our easy-access driveway, spacious lawn, and lakefront. The lounge can accommodate a small to medium-size group for indoor gathering. A larger group could combine use of this indoor space with a tent on the lawn between the building and the lake. We are happy to refer you to excellent local party rentals for needs such as tents, outdoor seating, dance floors, etc., as well as experienced caterers to help you with your culinary needs.

The Spa includes a hot tub and sauna room, shower facilities, and bathroom and is located off the kitchen and lounge area. We offer a spa menu and massage therapy by appointment. Trained at the Downeast School of Massage our professional licensed massage therapists have years of experience and talent. Whether you are planning a meeting, retreat, or wedding, consider including some self-care and stress relief as a part of your stragegy for a successful event.

The Lawn and grounds at Downeast Meeting and Banquet Facilities border Moose Meadow Pond, a 35-acre Great Pond (lake) that was created in the 1800s by innovative men to power a grist mill and a saw mill. Today it provides a beautiful natural environment, home to osprey, geese, otters, small- and largemouth bass, pickerel, and other wildlife. Canoing and kayaking are enjoyed in summer, while ice skating and cross-country skiing are popular in winter.

The lawn between the building and the lake offers a convenient and picturesque location for a tent large enough to accommodate well over 100 guests. It is perfect for a wedding, family picnic, or corporate event. There's also plenty of room for lawn games such as volleyball, badminton, or even croquet!

There is plenty of room for parking close to the building but away from the lawn and lake. For large events, parking attendants can be arranged. The lawn is accessible directly from the parking lot (which is located on the opposite side of the building from the lake) via a small paved driveway that circles around the building to the lower level entrance.
