About Tuscan Hill
A Little History --
Tuscan Hill has served Springfield and Southwest Missouri since March 2009. We have hosted every imaginable celebration from weddings to executive leadership conferences to nonprofit fundraising to direct sale product parties to women’s retreats to showers, birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and baptisms, and more.
Tuscan Hill is a gated estate dramatically situated atop twelve quiet, private, rolling acres. Though construction completed in 2006, the distinctive architectural design and decor of the home on Tuscan Hill exudes a timeless Italian/Mediterranean-style ambiance. We have indoor space for up to 50 guests for events such as executive/leadership offsite meetings, couples and women's retreats, MicroWeddings, celebrations of life, and small groups of every kind. We have outdoor space for up to 200. We offer overnight lodging.
The Grounds --
As the gate opens, the home on Tuscan Hill becomes more visible at the top of the long, curved lane with a deep forest to the right and a more manicured lawn to the left. The property boasts a variety of idyllic settings for your event.
Clients typically choose among five reception spaces. Two are inside the home and three spaces are outdoor with the pool as the centerpiece. The top level patio has an outdoor kitchen with serving area and a large dance area. The lower level patio area includes a beautiful blue pool with a 14’ water fountain. A third reception option is our 3600 sq ft white tent, 18’ peak, 7’ walls, concrete patio flooring, equipped with lights, fans and patio heaters. Outdoor options can accommodate 200 guests at round tables.
The Main Floor --
Comprised of 2800 sf of five unique, free-flowing, interconnected spaces perfect for special gatherings, the Main Floor can accommodate approximately 50 guests and our newest indoor space, 50 guests as well. For larger events, Tuscan Hill’s Main Floor is open for clients and event organizers during the preparation hours of the day. Once the reception is underway, the lounge and restroom closest to the outdoor reception space remains open for guests.
Vision for the Future --
While we will always serve our local community in all of these ways, we are positioning to become known locally, regionally, nationally, and perhaps internationally, as a Conference, Event and Retreat Center. To better describe our shift in primary purpose, we will add depth to our name with just three small words -- “The Vine at Tuscan Hill.”
Inspired by John 15:5, we want “The Vine at Tuscan Hill,” to positively impact not only our local community but to expand its reach to other communities and regions. We want “What happens at The Vine” . . . to have exponential reach to positively impact well beyond the 12 acres here!
We have to expand to fulfill the purpose -- When construction is complete, individuals, businesses, nonprofits and churches will be able to book our 6000 sf Conference, Event and Retreat Center. Tuscan Hill will also bring speakers and musicians to our stage. Those events will be open to the public. The Retreat Center will host multi-day events with lodging for leadership and staff.
New Facilities Detail --
The existing building will house our large commercial kitchen and with that, we will be able to prepare fresh for all events.
A hallway will connect the existing building to a new 6000 sf structure with a mostly open floor plan to accommodate larger events. Within that large structure will be movable partitions to accommodate for smaller business meetings and other gatherings throughout the week. The current 3600 sf concrete tent pad will become the patio to the new 6000 sf structure.
The buildings will be designed to follow the architectural style and design of the home. The grounds will be similarly manicured and landscaped with sidewalks added. We have plans for a vineyard to be planted on the northern facing slope on the front lawn. We have plans for flower gardens for fresh floral arrangements, as well as herb gardens to provide fresh ingredients for our culinary staff.
To bless and honor all who come through our gates to celebrate life’s significant moments through events, attending a conference or retreat.
To continually purpose to:
Increase the positive impact of the Tuscan Hill mission and vision in Southwest Missouri;
“Give back” to our local nonprofit organizations who work so diligently to bless others in our community;
Offer our Springfield Metropolitan Area residents a variety of scheduled community events;
Excel in our lane of hospitality locally, as well as in our broader overarching vision of blessing and honoring on a more global scale with our sister interests under the Tuscan Hospitality umbrella.
