Meetings & events, Naturally
The Nature Inn at Bald Eagle is a beautiful meeting and event destination in central Pennsylvania. As part of the DCNR Pennsylvania state park system, the inn offers a unique alternative to the larger conference centers found in towns and urban settings across the Commonwealth. Here at the Nature Inn, we offer state-of-the-art facilities at an environmentally responsible, LEED Gold-certified venue for meetings, social gatherings, weddings, and other events.
The inn offers two event spaces that are suitable for groups ranging in size from two to 50. With 16 overnight guest rooms, we can comfortably accommodate guests for overnight gatherings or multi-day retreats. We offer expansive views overlooking FJ Sayers Reservoir, walk-out connections to Bald Eagle State Park’s natural resources, exceptional in-house meals, and catering all at affordable prices. Our dedicated staff of event planners are available and look forward to working with you to make your upcoming event an unqualified success.
The Great room
Our largest room is both stunning and versatile, as we are able to configure this space to suit each group’s unique needs. Seating configurations vary by event type with maximum capacity being just more than 50. With two walls of windows overlooking scenic FJ Sayers Reservoir, a soaring cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, and a two-story stone fireplace, the setting is sure to make your event memorable.
This space is immediately adjacent to our covered porches and lobby which allows for overflow seating, additional food displays, or a bar setup. The Great Room also features wireless internet, conference call capabilities, and state-of-the-art AV resources all of which add to the overall versatility of this room.
Perched above the Nature Inn’s lobby with a direct view of the signature Bald Eagle stained glass mural is an intimate reading library and interpretive resource center. Perfectly proportioned and laid out for board-style meetings of up to 18 guests, the room can be closed off to the lobby below, with sliding glass privacy panels. While the library’s nest-like setting is truly unique, it features all the same high-tech AV capabilities as the multi-purpose room.
The Nature Inn is a full-service catering operation with a skilled culinary staff responsible for menu development and who will oversee all aspects of food preparation for your meeting, event, or gathering. Our menus range from light appetizers and hors d’oeuvres to casual lunches, barbecues, and full-dinner options. Our event planners will be happy to discuss your ideas and suggest items for a personalized menu perfectly suited to your group.
The Nature Inn has several quiet sitting areas located along the first-floor and second-floor corridors which are ideal for small breakout sessions and private conversations. Adjacent spaces allow for tailored break service as well.
Covered Wrap around porch
Enjoy unspoiled views of Bald Eagle Mountain and the Sayers Lake from these porches. Open for use by meeting attendees or private event guests, the porches provide a quiet, shaded retreat for small group activities, casual social time, or a smaller group meal.
outdoor patio, grill & fire ring
Book the entire inn for your meeting or event, and you'll enjoy exclusive use of our outdoor spaces which are among the most memorable in central Pennsylvania. With views overlooking the lake, our patio draws guests looking to unwind after a full day.
Enjoy an evening meal prepared on our professional-grade gas grills or allow our culinary staff to do the grilling for you. Our communal fire ring is an evening focal point throughout much of the year. We provide seasoned wood, starter materials, and marshmallow sticks.
Gatherings often include lively conversation shared over s’mores or an evening cocktail. During colder months, gatherings move indoors around the large stone fireplace in our great room.
