Private Dining & Afternoon Tea

Our private dining is available daily and by reservation only.  It’s a tasteful choice for your bridal or baby shower, business retreat, birthday or anniversary celebration or a special gathering with friends.

The Maple Shade Mansion offers four distinctly unique dining areas; they are: the Formal Dining Room which accommodates up to 16 guests, the sunlit Cherry Blossom Room overlooking the gardens with seating for up to 12 guests, the Gathering Room, a private dining room located on the second floor of the Mansion that seats up to 8 guests, and weather permitting, the Patio and Gardens, with seating for up to 12 guests. 

Our menus are influenced by the seasons and what is available at our local farmers’ market.  In the spring months, you can expect potato-leek soup or sweet strawberry shortcake. When summer is at its peak and the garden is bursting with produce, you may find fresh zucchini as the vegetable of the day or in a delightful dessert bread.  When autumn arrives you can expect to be treated to apple fritters, apple crisps, and creamy butternut squash soup.  Dine with us in the winter months and you will be treated to savory dishes with special sauces that we’ve canned during the summer months.
