"Living in Indiana and trying to organize a VIP client event in Portland, OR comes with a lot anxiety.  I knew we wanted an event where our clients would walk away feeling like they had truly experienced Portland, but just wasn’t sure how to pull it off.  With a little research, I came across Klum House. I reached out to the owner/manager and immediately knew this place was exactly what we wanted. I worked with both Ellie and Lydia and they both made me feel comfortable about the direction of our event.  They both helped me coordinate every detail and aspect.  They were both prompt with responses, offered up option for ways to accommodate our larger group.  Lydia helped us coordinate food and beverage for to enjoy during our workshop.  This was handled expertly!  The food was fresh, delicious and Lydia event created a special cocktail for us. The Klum house is cozy, warm and a great space for creativity and networking.  Our clients had a blast and they got to walk away with something they crafted with their own hands and a memory of Portland."
