Your special event will be all-the-more special at Natural Lands Trust’s ChesLen Preserve.
About the Facility:
The Lenfest Center, named for Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest whose generous support made the facility possible, was completed in June, 2013. Its hilltop setting offers sweeping views of the 1,263-acre ChesLen Preserve with its rolling crop fields and lush woodlands, providing a breathtaking setting for your special event.
The indoor space’s exposed-beam construction and expansive windows are complimented by a large flagstone patio and pavilion with two wood-burning fireplaces. This space is sure to inspire your guests as they take in the beauty of the preserve’s stunning landscape. An attached deck overlooks the woodlands and provides a tranquil space for appetizers or a cocktail reception.
Your guests will be welcomed by the lush native gardens that surround the Lenfest Center.
