From business meetings to best friend getaways, Cypress Bend Resort can customize an exciting and memorable itinerary for every type of group gathering. Whether your goal is to celebrate a special event, build camaraderie among colleagues, or create networking opportunities among like-minded professionals, we can coordinate the perfect mix of events and activities for your group.
This sample itinerary gives you an idea of what we can offer, but it’s only the beginning. Please contact our Event Manager to personalize your group’s itinerary.
Day One – Welcome
Upon arrival, each member of your group receives a Welcome Basket containing vouchers for a complimentary breakfast at Cypress Bend Dining Room and a $50 spa, golf or dining credit.
Take a guided tour of our grounds. Marvel at the towering cypress trees, rolling green hills, spectacular lake views. And don’t forget to ask about the best time for deer sightings.
Meet up on the back patio for a Cypress Bend Sunset Cocktail Party. Connect with new business contacts and reconnect with old friends as the sun dips into dazzling Toledo Bend Lake.
Head to the Cypress Bend Dining Room where our chef will whip up a Louisiana-flavored dinner feast, capped off with fresh-baked chocolate cake.
Day 2 – Inspiration & Recreation
Fresh coffee, fresh pastries, fresh air…nothing like a breakfast on the back patio to get your day started off right.
Bring the entire group together in our Multimedia Learning Center for an exciting day of inspiration. Our state-of-the-art technology brings your presentations to life.
All that learning sure works up an appetite. Head back to the Cypress Bend Dining room, where our chef has prepared a delicious lunch buffet with fresh sandwiches, salads, and desserts.
After lunch, break up in to groups for the Great Gardens Scavenger Hunt. The first team to find all of our seasonal blooms wins! Then, everyone gets some free time to enjoy the amenities…the heated swimming pool, the nature trail, and if you’re lucky, the occasional eagle soaring by in the sky.
Meet up in the Cypress Bend Dining Room for a sumptuous steak dinner, complete with a gorgeous view of the 18th green and a spirited conversation about the day.
Time for a little more friendly competition! Gather your group and hit the golf course for a glow-in-the-dark chipping contest.
Day 3 – Wind Down & Farewell Feast
Rise and shine! Early morning bass fishing on Cypress Bend Lake is a great way to build team spirit. Enjoy the tranquil waters, rising sun, relaxed conversation, and of course, reeling in the big catch of the day.
Separate into smaller groups for a few brainstorming sessions in the River Rooms. Something about our crisp country air really gets the creative juices flowing.
Celebrate a successful meeting with a fun-filled Crawfish Boil at the Clubhouse. The spices are hot, the beer is cold, and the new connections you’ve made are priceless.
Wind down with a nightcap in the Sabine Social Room. The cozy atmosphere is perfect for inspiring long conversations among new friends.
