We have so much to offer for any occasion. We provide a serene and beautiful atmosphere for any event, ranging from corporate functions to wedding--and everything in between! We have 13 acres in the midst of the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, also known as “Horse Country." We have a number of sophisticated locations to offer to make your special event personal and unique.

If you are looking for an indoor event, we have the intimate atmosphere of historic La Belle house, designed by renowned architect Warfield Gratz in 1926. We also have four buildings that are part of the museum: the newly-expanded main building which holds current exhibits; the fanciful Shell Grotto, covered in shells and completed with a floor made of coral; the elegant Jewel Room that houses jewels and other collectibles; and the unique Library that shelves over 1,000 books and natural specimens.


If you are looking for an outdoor event, we have a renovated tennis court, surrounded by serene landscaping and overlooking Swan Lake, completed with a gorgeous fountain by John Carloftis. We also have the exquisite Marylou Whitney Gardens that sit behind the Jewel Room & Library and a lovely patio that rests in front of the Shell Grotto. If you are looking for more of a “feels like home” atmosphere, we have a brick patio that surrounds the historic La Belle house and overlooks Swan Lake.
