Old Florida rustic charm wraps you up from the moment you walk into the ballroom with its hardwood pine floors and open wood beam ceilings! The original stone fireplace from when it was originally built in 1924 is a favorite and it’s also the main focal point of the room. There’s a royal feel to the ballroom that feels like warm cashmere as the atmosphere tends to wrap itself around you. That’s what we call “ambiance”.
