The Rookery

“The Rookery”, located in Shank’s Mare’s Susquehanna House, is a unique meeting place for a wide variety of functions.  Our 1100 square foot meeting room once housed a cigar factory.  We have renovated this unique space to reflect its history and preserve its spectacular view of the Susquehanna River.  We invite you to plan your next event at “The Rookery”.

Business & Organization Meetings

Business and organizations can enjoy a change of pace meeting setting for uninterrupted work sessions. “The Rookery” is designed to provide a relaxed, private space in which to get the job done.  A conference table seats ten with four smaller tables available for additional workspace. Once your work is completed, customize your meeting by adding one of Shank’s Mare’s “go play outside” activities.  Work & recreate together for great group dynamics!  We are happy to host company holiday parties, rewards and retirement dinners, or any type of working luncheon or meeting.

Special Occasions

The warmth of old oak furniture, a cozy fire and a spectacular view make your special occasion for friends and family one to remember.  The Rookery is happy to host birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, anniversary celebrations, family reunions, and small weddings.
