LaBranche is located 7 miles west of White Pines Inn
LaBranche is the newest addition to the ever expanding White Pines restaurant and banquet business. This newly renovated banquet facility is located 7 miles west of White Pines State Park in the town of Polo. There are 2 rooms that can be rented separately or opened into one large room with seating up to 350. The attention to detail in every inch of this 6000 square foot building is evident. The exterior is all cedar the color of honey & brown sugar. The two story, covered grand entryway is a combination of wood and glass, accented with square columns made of stacked limestone. The expansive foyer welcomes guests with a large granite and copper, wall fountain, an elegant rustic chandelier and a dramatic stone tiled floor.
Woodhaven, the larger of the two rooms, seats up to 230 with round tables, or 250 if there is a combination of rectangle and round tables.. The room has a beautiful wooden cathedral ceiling adorned with iron chandeliers that have amber colored glass shades. A large stone fireplace sits next to the quaint walk up bar. In addition, there are four sleek fireplace like lamps, built into columns along the walls. A small raised stage is tucked in between identical stone columns. There is also a dance floor centered in the room. Woodbury Room seats up to 100 and also has a walk up bar.
Common areas include the foyer, the buffet area which offers classy serpentine tables and boasts a copper colored, old fashioned tin ceiling, and the bathrooms. Ironically, the bathrooms have become quite the conversation piece due mostly to their raised glass sinks and unique faucets!
The delicious meals and buffets served at LaBranche, the menus, and the prices are exactly the same as those of White Pines Inn. In addition, both of LaBranche's rooms can be rented, with food service catered in.
I just want to say thank you to you and to your staff (especially Sherry) for a wonderful evening. A lot of work went into the planning, but once we arrived at LaBranche this evening, all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. And we did!
Thanks for making our first IRTA Luncheon of the year such a success. You make the planning part of it so easy, the service is great, and the location itself is clean and comfortable.
