The Marshall House is nestled in Vancouver's Officer's Row. Amidst a street of beautiful, old houses, this "house" has opened itself up to the public to be rented for family or office parties, receptions, and other events.
The building is not huge, but can handle around 100 people, more for an open house.
In our experience, the staff was helpful, friendly, knowledgable. We had my sister's wedding reception here in December, and the house was already decorated for Christmas (very classy!), so we had next to nothing to decorate!
The only catch to this site is that because it's owned by the cities, you must have a professional caterer. they have a long list of approved caterers, or you can get your own caterer approved. The nice thing about choosing off the list is that they all familiar with the MH and their expectations.
Prices are moderate, so even with the catering, it turns relatively affordable!
