Cornucopia at Oldfield provides a distinctive environment for your next workshop, seminar or strategy sessions.  Our three Public Rooms can be used in many ways to facilitate groups working together.  In the spring, summer and fall, the extensive gardens also provide opportunities for groups to meet outside or to have a reception after the meeting.  And your Innkeeper, Ed, is available as a facilitator.

Typically we have accommodated groups of between 10 and 15.  Equipment includes easels, slide projector, screen, flat screen TV with DVD and VCR, fax and copier. The room is equipped with WiFi. 

Our goal is to provide you with the personal service to make your meeting go smoothly and provide an environment conducive to meeting your goals. We will host only one group at a time to make sure that all your participants can speak freely in a private setting.


The Dining Room
has a long table that seats 10 comfortably. This room keeps everyone focused on the goal of the meeting.  It can also be used as a breakout room in conjunction with other rooms.  The room is 15 feet by 14 feet.

The Keeping Room is our largest room (23 feet by 20 feet) and can be configured in ways to accommodate from 10 to 20 people.  Our Keeping Room Table was designed to be used as a long board room table, as a square table, or for class room style (facing the presenter).  There is also a large couch, 2 leather wing chairs and a large coffee table.

The Parlor can accommodate up to 10 people on 2 sofas and 2 club chairs.  This room is ideal for small group conversation or as a breakout room. Other chairs can be easily moved into this room.  There is a small coffee table.  It is 15 feet by 13 feet. Our Guest Rooms can also be used for breakout rooms for small groups sessions.   The Patio provides many opportunities for large and small groups.  It measures 20 feet by 60 feet.

“Ed was well prepared for our strategic planning workshop.  He brought a lot of energy to the session that helped us quickly map our competitive environment; a critical first step in developing a new plan.

- Kathy Bower, Southbury Business Association

"The Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition has had a number of strategy sessions at the Cornucopia at Oldfield. We could not have had a better set up for our small group to think through tough questions and come up with creative solutions. Maybe it is something about the 180 years of history that gave us the perspective we needed. Then again it could have been the gracious hospitality of Christine and Ed."

 - Marc Taylor, MD, Chairman, Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition
