Conferences & Retreats
Do cement walls papered with mass-produced pastel prints and views of the infinitely repeating lines of a parking lot seem conducive to creative thinking?
And yet, this is precisely what most large hotel conference centers offer their clients. In building our Great Meeting Room, we have balanced functionalism with artistry, comfort with elegance. Our windows frame exalted mountain views; inspiration thrives in this serene environment.
Allow your associates the opportunity to tap their creative and intellectual energies here in our mountains, where every so often our renowned bald eagle swoops down from the heights at which it soars, to remind us, that there are indeed, those who maintain themselves above the rest.
The meals and snacks carefully are thought out for the needs of conference members. Our food is not a necessary nuisance over which we lose time, leaving us feeling heavy and lethargic. In the European tradition, we understand that food can be energizing and stimulating. The perfect solution to a seemingly daunting problem just might be delivered over a spoonful of sublime souffle!
The Copperhood Retreat & Spa features a variety of meeting rooms, differing in scale and character, suitable for meetings. From intimate to grand, all of them provide a private, quiet environment. We will arrange the facilities with you in advance, including table arrangement, decor and any equipment you may need. We understand that providing an attractive, yet businesslike atmosphere is important and that efficient, unobtrusive service is essential. Here at the Retreat, we're prepared to help make your business meetings exceptionally pleasant and productive.
