Our company chose Marconi for a work teambuilding offsite. We have team members from the US and Europe. The accommodations are slightly rustic, but clean and spacious. The Europeans loved the natural setting, wildlife, and hiking trails, and everyone loved the farm-to-table menus. The food really was outstanding. The staff at Marconi worked with us to ensure we had adequate space and equipment for our two days of activities, both in meeting rooms and in a field outside.
The setting is not rough terrain, but definitely bring comfortable walking shoes or boots. It was a little rainy while we were there, and some areas were pretty muddy. All meals are served in a main dining hall at set times of day. The dining hall is located at the top of a pretty steep hill. Our group is very fit, but I'm sure the staff would have used one of the many golf carts to whisk anyone up the hill who needed assistance. During our stay the area was pummeled by high wind storms. A couple of trees fell down (no one was hurt), and we lost power for several hours. Luckily, power was restored around midnight, and the staff provided lanterns and good humor so the time was easily passed.
Overall a great place for a family or business group event, bear in mind the total number of rooms available (about 35). If for a family event, you could easily sleep 3 in many of the rooms. We didn't take advantage of any activity options away from the property, but there seem to be many. We did make sure we stopped to try some artisan cheese before leaving the area.
Highly recommend. :)
