Altogether our meeting rooms can accommodate groups up to 1,000 people for many different purposes including retreats, conferences, concerts, crafts, breakout sessions, corporate meetings, and more.
The Chesapeake Auditorium is our premier conference room, located on the third floor of the Chesapeake Lodge. It features a 12’ by 24’ hardwood stage and comes with a digital piano, lectern, electric screen, 8' skirted table, and water coolers. It also has video projection packages and full performance sound packages available at an additional cost. Because of its size and capabilities, this room is typically used by the largest group in house.
Built in 1948, the Chapel is one of the original buildings on our property. The interior was updated in the fall of 2013 with new carpet, new windows, better lighting, cross décor, and brighter walls. The Chapel is equipped with a lectern, 8' skirted table, and water cooler. It also has additional performance sound packages available at an additional cost.
The Pritchett and Ritter Rooms are located on the second floor conference wing of the Chesapeake Lodge, and both offer a beautiful scenic view of the bay. Each of these meeting rooms has both indoor and outdoor access, and comes with a lectern, 8' skirted table, and wall mounted screen.
The Supplee, Guistwite, Hatfield, and Milburn Rooms are adjacent meeting rooms located on the second floor conference wing of the Chesapeake Lodge.

This semi-private meeting room has a nice water view with lots of windows and glass doors. It is located on the second floor of the Chesapeake Lodge, directly above the front lobby. The room is a more relaxed meeting area, equipped with sofas, armchairs, water cooler, some tables, and chairs.
The Driftwood Room is an informal meeting room located next to the Palmer Connect-itorium and across the courtyard from the Chesapeake Lodge. It is slightly removed, so it is an ideal location for groups desiring a little more privacy. The room is equipped with a lectern, 8' skirted table, upright piano, and water cooler. It also has a ramp access to accommodate guests with mobility needs.
Palmer is our largest meeting area, located across the courtyard from the Chesapeake Lodge. It is used exclusively by larger groups that have more than 550 guests, as it can accommodate up to 1,000 guests in a theater setting. It features a stage that is 21’ deep by 56’ wide and includes a lectern, electric screen, and water cooler. When not needed as a large meeting room, this facility is used year-round as an indoor recreation center featuring basketball, volleyball, our 30' rock climbing wall, ping-pong, pool tables, foosball, and air hockey.
The Water’s Edge Meeting Rooms are smaller informal Sunday School-style meeting rooms that work well as breakout rooms or as meeting rooms for smaller groups. These rooms are located on the lower level of the Chesapeake Lodge, directly below our dining room.
