Gather at the Lakes resides in the former iconic “Anthe’s” event space in the beautiful Portage Lakes area of New Franklin, Ohio. We spent months lovingly renovating this classic local venue, both updating it and restoring it to its former splendor. Guests are welcomed into the Entry Hall by warm, light-toned walls and natural light. Our 5,300 square foot Ballroom boasts the inviting look of new wall to wall wood floors and the charm of naturally distressed brick accent walls. The high ceilings and vintage crystal chandeliers add a classic elegance to Gather's charm. With a flexible event space that revolves around YOU, our experienced professional staff will work beside you to create the day that you envision. Whether you're dreaming of a rustic barn vibe, a vintage industrial feel, or a luxurious elegant affair, Gather is the perfect backdrop to seamlessly meld with your vision!
