The Jones Room

The Jones Room: Named in honor of the original owners, John and Mollie Jones, who built this magnificent Victorian home in 1873. Their original private dining room has become the perfect venue to host all types of private events. The room can seat up to 36 guests for an elegant sit-down plated dinner and we are delighted to organize the tables in any configuration you desire or empty the room entirely for use as a conference space or dance floor.

This room has been used for all kinds of family gatherings over the decades, including family reunions and graduation parties. The most popular uses are for smaller weddings, bridal parties, rehearsal dinners, farewell brunches and celebration of life dinners, for those who have passed on. The Jones Room is located next to our cozy mahogany bar, which leads to an outside patio, which has commanding views of Cayuga Lake. The patio also offers guests an inviting atmosphere to have a drink around our fire pit conversation area. Events held in the Jones Room can expand onto the deck, bar or into other rooms on the hotels first floor, if arrangements are made in advance, with our event planner.

Throughout your private dinner at least one dedicated wait-staff will be standing by to service your every need. You’re welcome to work directly with our chef to customize the meal you wish to serve at your event.
