Open-air Pavilion on the Banks of the Caloosahatchee River
A brand new, open air pavilion has been built on the former tennis court behind the home, with expansive views of the beautiful Caloosahatchee River. The elegant, white structure can be air-conditioned and seats up to 200 people, negating the need, added cost or hassle of a setting up a tent for shelter. There is no other event venue like this in downtown Fort Myers. It is the calm, perfect setting for wedding receptions, business conferences, reunions, socials, and other special events.
