about us

Conveniently located just minutes from Columbus, surrounded by 64 acres of lush trees and rolling meadows, Retreat 21 is an inspired haven outfitted with cozy cabins and elevated essentials for your next getaway. From intimate dinner gatherings to corporate retreats, inclusive weekend events and personalized wedding packages, Retreat 21 is a place to adventure, unwind, and celebrate thoughtfully.

Our team is passionate about producing incredible events, creating extraordinarily unique experiences and fostering environmental stewardship through our sister company Rethink 21.

The team behind Retreat 21 bring well-varied backgrounds to their roles at Columbus’ most exciting new event venue. From consulting and marketing, to events and higher education, to the hustle worlds of facility maintenance, bartending, hair styling, modeling, serving — the team of Retreat 21 use the lessons from their previous positions to fuel a dynamic team environment.

We work diligently to bring every event to life with the care and creativity needed to produce lifetime memories. Leveraging each of our strengths, we collaborate on every endeavor, going above and beyond to exceed the expectations of our valued clients.

We have been through hundreds of events, of every size and scope, and lay it all on the line to deliver events that will surprise, delight, and make you think. We cherish: open communication, equality, inclusive actions, an earth-friendly mindset, forward thinking problem solving, balanced living, and having tons of fun along the way.

Launched in 2013, Vue was founded by (then) young entrepreneurs Liz and Carl Seiley. Vue’s innovative industrial space, prime Brewery District location and outstanding customer service have made it one of the most sought-after event destinations in Central Ohio. With a hyper-focus on customer centric experiences, we are committed to making each and every customer experience welcoming, unique and memorable. Designed for environmental productivity, Vue features a vast array of natural plants, lots of sunlight, conscious practices, sustainable design, and an underlying modern ambience.

Hundreds of events – including weddings, meetings, conferences and parties – are hosted at Vue each year, and its partner nonprofit, FLIP (cancer prevention) continues to thrive thanks to the exposure and support these events provide. Our staff is passionate about making an incredibly positive, lasting impression for each and every event. We hold this privilege in the highest regard, and are continually excited to be a part of Columbus’ growing community.

Liz and Carl Seiley, husband and wife co-founders of Retreat 21, are seasoned leaders in the events world. Infusing their work with unique ideas and an unmatched passion, Liz and Carl stay on the cusp of modern events and client engagement.

Liz and Carl started their journey in the event world working as servers / caterers for Young’s Jersey Dairy near their hometown, Enon, OH. Their shared passion for events, customer service and serving their community provided the foundation for launching FLIP, a cancer prevention nonprofit in 2010 and Vue Columbus, their first event space in 2013. From the beginning, they have diligently poured their hearts and strength into creating an environment fit to inspire a variety of events. They are thrilled for the adventures to come with this new undertaking, and hope that you will find Retreat 21 as the exuberant yet relaxing oasis that it is.

Liz and Carl also have a vibrant family life, raising their children Lucy and Archie. They enjoy spending time with family and friends, and bringing up a new generation of (potential) event professionals — or just tiny mascots!
