Retreats & Meetings

Have you been seeking a unique venue for a business retreat or off-site meeting? The main floor of the Vrooman Mansion can be configured many ways to fit your needs and your timeframe. Our facilities can be reserved for a couple hours or a couple days for your Bloomington, Illinois retreat.

  • Small private meeting room
  • Large open space with a conference table and presentation screen
  • Multiple tables for work groups spaced throughout several rooms

Our 3,000 square foot main floor offers multiple meeting rooms that vary in size and feel, with high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the mansion. We can accommodate 50–75 people depending on your specific presentation needs. We book only one meeting at a time, giving your group a sense of exclusivity and allowing our staff to provide our undivided attention.

And if you like to have break out sessions, we have several smaller locations across the property with a combination of indoor and outdoor to meet your needs including the front porch, side porch, dining room, study, sitting room at the top of the stairs, music room, carriage house screened in porch, garden and the popular s’mores fireplace.


We will configure our rooms to optimize your team-building space. In addition to hosting your meeting, we offer a variety of activities and programs to help make your event more memorable and successful.

Let us plan an outdoor excursion for your group. We would be happy to arrange a golf outing, indoor rock climbing, or sightseeing cruise down the Illinois River on the Spirit of Peoria. If you would rather stay on-site, you can simply relax as a group on our covered side porch, get your creative juices flowing in our beautiful gardens, play a team-building game of croquet on the lawn, or sit by the fire and make s’mores in our outdoor stone fireplace.

Whatever your activities, your team will enjoy the luxury and stress-free environment of the Vrooman Mansion, which will allow them to focus on your goals while being inspired by history. This gracious space seems to naturally encourage camaraderie, and we’re certain everyone will return to their office feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
