Thank you for considering us to host your special event. The GillHouse has a long tradition of holding memorable weddings and family celebrations in Henderson Harbor. The GillHouse is all freshly renovated - honoring its historic roots and beautiful waterfront location with a clean, modern flair. We invite you to stop in to meet, tour the property, and talk about how we can work together to make your day unforgettable.
The GillHouse can host what you desire for a destination wedding, including:
- Main dining room (seats 75) with large windows and outside porch (25).
- Private dining room with seating up to 20 people, for more intimate events.
- Large reception room with fireplace and cozy seating to meet and greet.
- Warm inviting tavern to mingle, dine, or watch your favorite sports.
- Garden level patio with firepit, cocktail tables, and walkup service bar. (also a great area for the band and dance floor)
- Large event lawn with shade trees overlooking Harbor views.
- 11 renovated hotel rooms, various sizes with waterfront patios.
We often anticipate closing down our restaurant and bar the day of a wedding (over 40 people) so we can have everything set up and specific to your event. This may include a fee between $1,000 - $4,000 based on season, actual date and specific timeframes. Receptions are typically booked to last 4-5 hour maximum.
We will collaborate on a menu to accommodate your tastes and budget. We offer sit down dinners or food stations for a more casual event. Everything will be served on fresh linens, china, silverware, and glassware - by friendly attentive servers.
