Peterloon is the ideal setting for your nonprofit event

The Peterloon Foundation was established in 1979 to help support nonprofit organizations in Greater Cincinnati. The foundation does this by offering use of the house and grounds at nominal rental rates to qualified charitable groups. At the core of the Peterloon Foundation is a commitment to help be a home for nonprofit organizations’ events so they can continue to do great work in the community.

Peterloon is an extraordinary place to help celebrate and grow your organization. When constructed in 1928, every detail of Peterloon was carefully chosen for its beauty and historical relevance from European castles and estates. As you tour the home you will find architectural and design treasures, such as the 400-year-old oak parquet de Versailles flooring in the living and dining rooms, and the 16th century Indigo Jones mantelpiece in the front hall. Your guests will marvel at the hand-carved Slavonian oak paneling from the mid-1600s. The masterful artistry found in each facet of Peterloon’s design makes the estate a magnificent and memorable venue.

The incredible splendor of the home is surrounded by gorgeous exteriors. The exterior walls are adorned with numerous animal carvings and statues, from snails and dolphins to a robust rooster and a basket full of adorable puppies. Strolling through a tunnel of natural foliage, you will find yourself entering an exquisite hidden garden that is picturesque for an intimate gathering. The family’s European style swimming pool, including a fountain, is a spectacular backdrop for a sunset photo.

The back lawn of the Peterloon estate is surrounded by a breathtaking view of the stunning property and has an expansive 55’x100’ hardscape terrace fashioned with attractive pavers that blends seamlessly with the historic appearance of the estate, complete with a walkway leading from the house and an adjacent catering space. The terrace was strategically designed to accommodate multiple sized tents. Whether you are planning a small and intimate outdoor affair or a large celebration, Peterloon can meet your needs. This area is not only perfect for tented occasions but can also be used for open air events and outdoor activities. 


Kitchen facilities are available for use by approved caterers in keeping with the Peterloon catering guidelines. Tables and chairs (but not tableware and linens) for 120 can be provided for indoor use. Any beer, wine and liquor served on the estate must be purchased from Peterloon.


Peterloon’s front courtyard provides self-service parking for up to 25 cars and valet parking for up to 40 cars. Additional parking for up to 120 cars is available at the carriage house, approximately 250 yards from the main building. Cost for valet parking and/or shuttle service from the carriage house to the main house is the user’s responsibility.
