The Bellwether Ballroom seats up to 250 guests banquet style, while offering spectacular views of Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands. Equipped with a permanent dance floor and high-speed Internet, the 4,437-square-foot Bellwether Ballroom is an elegant venue for your celebratory wedding reception. This large room can also be elegantly divided in half to accommodate a smaller, intimate crowd. Both sides of the divided Ballroom would not be in use at the same time. After a delightful evening of dining, host your guests to a more festive celebration of dancing! The spacious and versatile room is ready to be decorated to your tastes and adapted to your vision. The room is complemented by a 728-square-foot pre-function foyer area, perfect for a cocktail hour and post-ceremony mingling. The space also features a generous 795-square-foot water view terrace that can serve as a mid-reception escape for a breath of fresh air.
