Holiday Event Space & Catering

The holidays are here! After a long hot summer and a shortfall, we’re moving into the chilly festive time of the year, a time which for most folks features events and parties galore. While this can be a lot of fun and good cheer does abound, it can also be a bit hectic, maybe even stressful. Planning the office holiday extravaganza, a smaller gathering for friends, or even your own family’s celebration can take up a lot of time and energy. Let’s face it, most of us lead busy lives anyway, and adding more stress to a supposedly happy time of the year takes away from the fun.

What if there were a better way?
Imagine with us, if you will, a space perfectly suited for your holiday gathering needs. Something close enough to be accessible but private enough to be peaceful. A space that is both friendly and welcoming that nevertheless offered every convenience. Versatile spaces equally able to host either a warm family gathering or a high-end corporate luncheon. A space that allows you to relax and enjoy the event, rather than worrying about what’s in the oven.

At River Bluffs, we’ve created that space. Let us tell you about it.

A Sophisticated Space Embraced by Nature

Of all the amenities offered at River Bluffs, we have to say that Porches Cafe is one of our favorites.
