In the Elegant Surroundings of Fairlawn Mansion

Let us provide a charming, worry-free setting for your special occasion with our all-inclusive private dining options at the Fairlawn Mansion. Perfect for bridal showers, groom’s dinners, anniversaries, birthdays, Red Hat groups, or any event that calls for a special touch. Simply choose from one of our menus and we’ll take care of the rest.  An optional 45-minute tour of the mansion  is available for you and your guests.

We can accommodate groups ranging in size from 10 to 65 guests. All meals are prepared by our contracted caterer, Red Swan Catering of Duluth.

Please contact us for availability and COVID-19 rental guidelines.


We have both lunch and dinner options available for private dining.  Prices are $25.00* or $28.00* per person depending on the menu.  The meal is typically served with tea in antique tea cups, but coffee may be substituted as a group.  A dessert is also included.  All meals are set up for your group, food is served on china, and our staff takes care of clean-up.
