The second floor meeting space was retrofit with new plug and play AV systems, and features the 3,000 sq. ft. Crystal Ballroom. All meeting rooms have natural light and 13-ft. ceilings. Visitors and locals alike are quite fond of the Lokal (the German word for a bar) with their resident mixologist creat- ing unique signature cocktails infused with local products. Step inside the historic Walper Hotel u CAMBRIDGE MILL Situated picturesquely on the banks of the Grand River, the beautifully restored Cambridge Mill restaurant is a perfect location for meetings of various sizes. The iconic building also offers five floors of event space to planners for intimate dinners, or group experiences. And it's not all work and no play, as the Cambridge Mill also offers teambuilding group activities such as local beer tastings guided by the house Cicerone, Scotch Nosings and a chef-guided charcuterie and cooking experience. The Cambridge Mill can accommodate up to 24 people in each group and can do a couple of different programs at the same time. t LANGDON HALL The beautiful new expansion of the Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa adds to the lustre of this Relais & Châteaux property. New spaces include the Summer House Pavilion, the Firshade Room and Firshade Hall meeting rooms, a luxury spa and an additional eight elegantly appointed guest rooms. Anna Hewat, communications manager for Langdon Hall, says, "since the opening last spring, we've come to appreciate all the capabilities of the Summer House and we're learning how our meeting groups can utilize the covered stone terrace that overlooks the chef's vegetable garden. In season, produce is used in the daily menu. Rustic wood beams complement a fireplace and groups can spill out onto the lawns, or take shade from the summer heat." Langdon Hall offers a range of spaces that suit a variety of group needs, from intimate small board meetings and incentive programs to conferences for up to 75 people. The property features 60 guestrooms, a fine dining restaurant and even a helicopter pad where scenic tours can be coordinated with Great Lakes Helicopter. General manager Domini Baldasaro says, "Our renovated rooms are fresh and chic, many of our guests say they would like to have the same feel in their own home, so they feel comfortable in our space. With clean white walls, and a array of different wallpapers, no two guestrooms are exactly alike— some guests want to be in the same room every time and others want to experience each and every one."
