Mason banquet, conference center offers breathtaking business meeting backdrop

Bye-bye bland meeting backdrops. Hello beautiful Manor House Banquet & Conference Center in Mason.

The elegant 18-acre plantation-style estate, owned and operated by affable Cincinnati natives Kathy and Bill Kinane, offers corporate event planners a breathtaking blend of country club style and grand hotel elegance with milestone-celebration flair.  Exquisite décor, excellent food and first-class service have been Manor House hallmarks since it opened two decades ago, wisely located in the midst of one of Greater Cincinnati’s fastest-growing and most dynamic business markets.

Need the perfect spot for indoor team building accompanied by a few relaxing rounds of cornhole? Looking for a serene, al fresco luncheon landscape between bustling brainstorming sessions?  Manor House offers it all.

The Kinanes have mastered a knack for welcoming corporate America to Manor House Monday through Friday, then turning around and hosting weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays and other social/family-oriented events on the weekends. The venue for all seasons is also heralded as the venue for all reasons.

 It’s the unique grounds with multiple venues that attracts corporate visitors. From vendor exhibitions, travel shows and shareholder meetings to team building, political fundraisers and retirement parties, Manor House – which accommodates up to 2,000 guests –  offers fabulously flexible room set-ups, with 11 beautiful breakout areas in a variety of sizes. The Carriage House, divided into two areas – the Carriage Room and the Coach Room is perfect for smaller functions.

Amenities abound: Hard-to-beat the genteel ambiance, meticulously groomed grounds, two gazebos, ponds, fountains, covered verandas and a wishing well to boot. Additional attractions include 500 parking spaces and private transportation arrangements available for visitors staying at nearby hotels. Manor House also offers corporate hosts a variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, with in-house chef Kevin Lamb happy to create themed meals, buffet stations or plated meals. In-house AV, Wi-Fi with 1,000 IP address compatibility and an available satellite van if required have been added to the available options.

“About every other month we do what we call corporate open houses,” says Kathy. “What we do is invite people who might potentially need meeting space to come and have lunch. It’s very low key, no high pressure sales.”

A potential corporate visitor and one additional guest are invited to dine buffet style and, if they would like, tour the grounds to get a real feel for the place.

Manor House offers the event hosting experience corporate leaders can depend on in addition to unforgettable surroundings that will inspire their employees. That’s Manor House.
