Group or Individual Rentals Welcome

Available for corporate or individual rentals, The Red Fern’s accommodations suit many
personal preferences and business needs.  Open seven days a week, the facility
includes a smaller separate room,
The Studio, in addition to the large, main hall.  The
Studio offers wireless Internet  access,  and a projector, screen and flip charts are also
available for use by our guests.  Any meeting or event can be complimented by The Red
Fern’s breakfast  (a continental breakfast or full breakfast buffet, available for a
minimum of 25 guests), lunch or dinner alternatives.

The Studio provides the intimacy and privacy necessary for up to ninety guests, while
the main banquet hall comfortably holds up to four hundred.  Flexible seating
arrangements are available to provide a unique atmosphere for any occasion.  The
Studio is an ideal location for a rehearsal dinner, even if you choose a different location
for your wedding reception.

Our experienced staff would be happy to take the time to discuss your particular
preferences.  As  dozens of rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions have taken
place within these walls, some might consider The Red Fern simply to be a banquet
hall.  But, The Red Fern is much more than that  -  and it has hosted gatherings of state
and local agencies, and capitalized on its central Pennsylvania location for seminars for
groups with members from Ohio, New York and West Virginia.  We recognize that every
group or organization is different, and we are happy to work with you to utilize The Red
Fern to compliment that style.
