About the Villa
The Villa Maria started life in the mid-1950’s as an educational facility for diocesan seminarians. These grounds still fulfill their original purpose of education and spiritual enrichment today. Set in a quiet, residential neighborhood, the Villa Maria offers a beautiful view of Lake Springfield. The gently rolling grounds with dozens of mature trees entice you to take a stroll and unwind.
A path leads from our grounds into Lincoln Memorial Gardens, which boasts a number of well groomed trails for longer walks. Lincoln Greens Golf Course is also nearby.
The tranquil and reflective atmosphere is continued inside our buildings. Many rooms offer a spectacular view of the grounds , while keeping you comfortable in our climate-controlled environment.
The Villa Maria would be a wonderful location for the following types of events:
- Retreats (group and personal)
- Parish picnics
- Family celebrations
- Training sessions
- Rehearsal dinners
- Showers (wedding & baby)
- Anniversaries (marriage, job, etc.)
- Reunion (class & Family)
- Employee dinners (retirements, anniversaries, employee of the year, etc)
- Father/son outings
- Mother/daughter outings
- Religious or Professionsl meetings
