Meeting Rooms at Peter Herdic House
Built in 1854 as a residence for Peter Herdic, a Williamsport lumber baron, the house was restored in 1982-83 and sisters Marcia and Gloria Miele opened the restaurant’s doors in 1984. From the beginning, they combined a respect and love for Williamsport’s historic heritage with a passion for fine food.
From meetings to retreats to conferences, the Herdic House offers the modern conveniences your group needs in an unforgettable Victorian sanctuary of luxury and comfort. Audio visual equipment is available for your convenience, as well as Wi-Fi Internet access.
The Herdic House Restaurant contains three private rooms, ideal for business meetings or small conferences. We can offer private dining for groups as small as 6, with rooms that accommodate up to 12, 20, 30 and 35, respectively, and a ground floor that can seat up to 80. If you prefer an elegant location for your next business dinner or presentation, consider that our beautifully appointed rooms are lit by chandeliers, our guests sit on velvet tufted chairs, and each table is appointed with candles.
We offer meeting space indoors and a relaxing cocktail space outside on our wisteria-covered patio. Our stunning decor is matched only by the excellent fare prepared by our chefs, using the finest ingredients, sourced from our local farms and producers whenever possible. Our capable kitchen (run by Gloria’s daughter Liz Miele) makes dining a gourmet experience, and our chefs and staff are happy to work with you and your clients to tailor a menu or event specifically to your needs.
For convenience, we offer free, on- and off-street parking and our central location makes it easy for guests to enjoy everything Williamsport has to offer, for both business and pleasure, without worrying about driving or directions. Accented by picturesque mountain vistas, Northcentral Pennsylvania is a mid-way point from most major Mid-Atlantic cities.
