Corporate Events

The Preston Woodall House is a premier meeting and retreat space in North Carolina. Our meeting space offers a private, distraction-free environment that provides the quiet necessary for concentration and focus in a richly detailed setting. Our 13 bedrooms are well appointed for retreats and corporate lodging.

The 2,800-square-foot Cora Lily Ballroom is the focal point of the Bed & Breakfast meeting and conference facility. Chandeliers, Raymond Waites wallpaper and a period Queen Anne d├ęcor bring a rich residential feel to all rooms. The foyer and common areas are warmed by ornate ceilings, while outside grounds offer the tranquility of fountains and the natural beauty of small town Benson, NC.

While an incredible meeting facility and meeting space are vital, equally important is our planning team, responsible for your group from pre-program planning to the execution of your successful event. Our experienced and dedicated team will oversee all group functions at the Preston Woodall House –  suggesting meeting room setups, handling room reservations, making special arrangements and off-property activities such as golf, spa, tennis, and coordinating all food and beverage services.
