How do I block the rooms for my guests?
You can block rooms for your guests with a $250.00 deposit per room when one property is booked. When both properties are booked, there is a $140.00 per room deposit to block the rooms. The room deposit is fully refundable and will be returned to you 40 days before your stay. The block ensures the rooms are set aside in your name until your guests pay for the rooms. Any rooms not booked by the time your deposit is returned are released from the block and made available to the general public. It is very important for your guests to book and pay for their rooms before your deposit is released. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee a room will be available for them.

Is there a minimum number of nights required for our stay?
There is a two-night minimum stay requirement. On select holidays, a three-night minimum rental is required. A one-night stay is impossible to accommodate since it does not allow sufficient time for set-up, ceremony, after party, tear down, and clean up.

Yes. After you book your venue, we can provide you with a list of vendors in the area that can help you with your DIY wedding plans. Unlike other venues, we do not require you to use our vendors.

No. We do not charge a cleaning fee as long you leave the event area in the condition you found it.
