Inspired by the McKenzie House-the front magnificent three-story Victorian home-McKenzie Hall speaks of times past. The Hall’s 2,300 square foot central room, with its many glass doors, opens to a large patio surrounded by lush Florida gardens. Elegantly designed with high, exposed truss ceilings, Victorian light fixtures, and crisp white paint, McKenzie Hall is perfect for any special occasion. With a full kitchen facility, serving room, and spacious restrooms, the Hall is perfect for receptions of up to 250 guests for hors d’oeuvres style or a light buffet or 175 guests for a sit-down dinner. During the day, events feel like an outdoor garden reception or luncheon. At night, the colored glass copula sends out a beckoning light while you stroll through the lit garden walkways. Day or night, the ivy laced bridge and arbor, seven unique fountains, lush vegetation, and reflecting koi pond provide a serene ambiance for the senses.
