14 Things You Can Do When You Book Our Venue Room

While most people know us here at The Beacon Inn as a hotel in the great location of Lewes – and our ‌proximity to Rehoboth Beach – what you might not know is that we also have a fantastic venue room available.

What can this room be used for? We’re glad you asked, since there have been a variety of people and groups that have used the space over the years. We wanted to share with you 14 ways in which people have already made great use of the space.

The Beacon Inn in Lewes, DE offers a venue room suitable for a number of different events

1. Bridal Showers

The ‘Big Day’ might still be a way off, but that’s no reason to limit your celebrations. If you’re the maid of honor or a bridesmaid and you want to throw your bride a shower, then our venue room is ideal. It means you can gather and play games in a group without having to crowd out someone’s house.

2. Family Reunions

With our idyllic location by the coast, there’s no better place to come to for your next family reunion. No doubt it’s been a while since you last got together with the extended family, and in addition to our comfortable rooms, we also have our venue room where you can all catch up.

3. Group Meet & Greet

If you’re planning to get together with a group for the first time – whether it’s something you’ve arranged as part of your business or just a walking group you’ve put together, our venue room is perfect for that first meet and greet session where everyone can get to know each other.

4. Continued Education

Are you holding continued education classes? Need a quiet space to get the work done? Our venue room has been used for this purpose before and is available to book for groups large or small. 

5. Seminars

Whether you’re holding an official seminar as part of a course you run for an educational institution or are simply someone with expert knowledge on a subject you’d like to share with an engaged audience, you can book our venue room. It’s a great space to share with curious minds!

6. Pop-up Shops

In the world of retail and marketing, things move quickly these days. Pop-up shops have become super popular for brands and small businesses who want to sell from a physical location for a limited time. From online retailers to local businesses, we’ve seen plenty of pop-up shops make great use of our venue space.

7. Bridge

Sometimes the classic games are the best – and what better way to unwind on your next trip to Lewes than with a game of bridge? Yep, you guessed it, our venue room is a brilliant spot for games with groups. Try it out next time you’re here.

8. Wedding Receptions

If you’re planning on sharing your special day with family and friends, our venue space is ideal for wedding receptions. We’ve already helped many happy couples to celebrate their love and we hope you’ll keep us in mind for your event. Our space has room for 50 people with spillover into the lobby where needed.

9. Catered Meals (for groups staying with us)

Already planning to stay with us but looking for a simple way to feed your group? You can use our venue space to provide catered meals – breakfast, lunch, or dinner – and keep your group together instead of trying to arrange large bookings in restaurants.  

10. Sales Summits

When you choose the historic town of Lewes for your next sales summit, look no further than The Beacon Inn for your summit venue. As well as giving any attendees a comfortable room to stay overnight in, we’ve had sales summits held in our venue space to help get people out of the stuffy corporate meeting rooms.

11. Small Retreats

Our venue room is another option for your small retreat if you’re looking to organize a centralized location to operate from but don’t have anything permanent. 

12. Birthdays

An obvious but excellent use of our venue space, birthday parties have been held at The Beacon for people of all ages. With a great location to celebrate with family and friends, you can have both a vacation and a birthday to remember.

13. Sports Team Meetings

From gathering your team to discuss tactics and training beforehand, to giving them a space to socialize or celebrate together afterwards, our venue space has played host to a number of sports teams when visiting the area.

14. Baby Showers

Throwing a baby shower and want to include more guests than your home can hold? We’ve got you covered with our venue space. You can do everything from games to present openings and you’ll even be able to dress the space with your decorations.
