The Hygeia House was the perfect setting for our company sales meeting! The location is within walking distance of restaurants and bars for evening entertainment. Best spot for team bonding was around the fire pit with comfy couches with enough room to accommodate our group of 14. The house is clean, comfortable and stocked with supplies for in house entertaining. Highly recommended!!
