Old Barn. Contemporary Vision.

Great care has been taken to respect the past and embrace new possibilities by building on the strength of the farm’s original foundation.

A glimpse into The Lyceum, our primary meeting room. It comfortably accommodates up to 20 people. It has the warmth and charm not found in traditional conference spaces and all the modern tools and conveniences that are a must for business meetings.
Spacious. Elegant. Functional.
Space abounds at Hesly Center (take the tour). The original natural materials seen in wide open spaces such as the entry hall and loft, are warm, inviting and, most importantly, functional. Nothing is wasted.
The spacious, open entry hall doubles as breakout or mingling space and leads to The Respite, a modern addition to the barn. The Respite is fully equipped with a first rate kitchen and plenty of comfortable seating and restrooms. There are also several private offices and outdoor gathering spots.
