Frequently Asked Questions

What are my requirements for using your facility?

We require a non-refundable $35 reservation fee and a refundable $100 security deposit to confirm reservation. We also require a signed rental agreement prior to your event.  Should your event run over the expected time, fail to leave the facility in good order or if you incur any damages during your event, the security deposit will cover it.  For Do-it-Yourself events, we have a clean up list for you to follow after your event and must be followed to have the security deposit refunded.

What is included in your full service option?

Our Full Service option includes table linens, place settings, centerpieces for banquet and food service table, hostess care, wait staff, and complete clean up.  We can arrange for your photographer, DJ, a harpist or violinist, and cake designer.  The Full Service option allows you time to enjoy your event.  We will work with the caterer or restaurant of your choice or ours to provide your food service but cost of food is extra.

Do I have to use your full service option?

No, you always have the option to Do-it-yourself to stay within your budget.   

How many guests can you accommodate?

Our banquet room will accommodate up to 30 guests but we can seat up to 50 guests which requires an extra fee. With our two parlors, the patio, and the carriage room we can accommodate up to 65 guests for a mingling event.  Our parlors are comfortable living room-style areas that invite conversation and relaxation.  

What are your regular rates?

A basic set up is seating for up to 30 guests including up to five tables in the banquet room for $65 an hour.  Most events require a minimum of four hours to allow time for setup and decorating for your event, approximately two hours for the event itself, and then approximately one hour for clean up.  You can rent our charming venue for an hour or the whole day if you like.
