Our Entry Lobby and adjoining Atrium Room provide the perfect, welcoming effect as you enter Hunterdon Hills Playhouse. Surrounded by pleasingly striking country elegance with stellar skylights overhead, an unbeatable atmosphere greets guests as they arrive on our premises.
The ambrosial appeal of the Atrium Room with its airy, high ceilings, lush greenery and floor-to-ceiling windows, makes it the most popular area at our facility. Spectacular scenic vistas provide a breathtakingly pastoral backdrop and seem to bring the outside in, while multiple sliding glass doors open onto the adjacent patio terrace overlooking our glistening, serene lake providing convenience for those wishing to take advantage of the fresh bucolic air.
Outdoor tents can also be rented and placed just off of the Atrium to provide additional party space.
An accessible hexagon-shaped bar--custom-made with fine tongue and groove birch, an ample section of polished slate (which can be used as an exquisite dance floor) directly under the magnificent grand skylight and a superb black baby grand piano, further enhance this space, making it ideal for cocktail hours and/or parties for up to 100 guests.
You also won't hear a lot of other venues boasting about their restrooms, but our impressive Ladies Room is larger than some apartments. With its Entry Lounge, Vanity Room, Washroom, and two Powder Rooms containing 22 enclosed commodes, guests will never have to wait on a line to freshen up.
There is no better way to describe the main dining room at Hunterdon Hills Playhouse other than “GRAND.” With tiered seating levels accented by lustrous brass rails, high beveled ceilings, complementary brass wall sconces, a prominent, fully stocked main bar—custom built with rich cherry wood, and our signature floor-to-ceiling windows—framed with luxuriant drapery, while revealing enthralling scenic views—lining each side of the room, our Grand Room was designed with the unique ability to feel either attractively intimate, or elegantly impressive.
Our massive 70-foot wooden dance floor affords plenty of celebratory space, insuring room for all who want to participate. A commanding 45-foot proscenium stage stands over the dance floor and provides an excellent spot from which to showcase entertainment, speeches, ceremonies, or video presentations.
Our novel seating areas, bordered by an accommodating mezzanine level and accessible via ramped aisles, allows for flexibility in creating a multitude of possible arrangements for any event or occasion with 100 to 500 guests.
From the moment you enter our property upon our winding, tree-lined ¼ mile driveway, you are transported into another world. Hunterdon Hills Playhouse is situated among a natural 90-acre Arcadian oasis. Set back from main roads and civilization in a secluded wooded wonderland, our property is an attraction unto itself!
We are surrounded by towering oaks and majestic evergreens, while an attractive variety of flowering trees punctuate the landscape. Artfully arranged and placed multicolored flower beds blossom among impeccably manicured lawns.
Each season offers its own distinct delights: The crisp, quiet frosts of winter lead into a spring bursting with pastoral life; the deep green lushness of summer eventually becomes exploding fireworks of color in autumn trees. Scenic photo opportunities abound in every direction and there are convenient walking and sitting areas sprinkled about, from which to enjoy different vantage points.
When you are able to sit for any length of time in such bucolic beauty; as deer, rabbits and squirrels frolic in the surrounding forests; as ducks, geese, heron—and sometimes even swans, drift upon the cool, calm water of our sizeable, shimmering lake; as butterflies silently flutter passed you…stress seems to melt away and you are enveloped by a pleasing sense of serenity and contentment, and you realize that you are in a place where you wouldn’t mind spending a lot of time.
