The inside reception space has a capacity of 200 (including wedding party) and the outside space can fit 300+. Outdoor seating is limited to benches or you can rent your own chairs.
Yes. You do have to follow all laws regarding alcohol. This means if you are selling alcohol you need a liquor license. You can hire bartenders who have these. We do not provide this. If you have an open bar you are not required to get a license. As the person hosting the event you are responsible for any underage or dangerous drinking so we recommend having someone monitor the bar and check ID.
When the details have been worked out you reserve the space by giving contact information and putting a credit card on file. There is a no-cancellation policy within 6 months of the event. Payment is due at the time of arrival or before. You’ll receive an email invoice and reservation confirmation.
1 Day Events will have limited availability.
Yes of Course. We do not limit your choices and respect that every couple does things differently.
For outdoor ceremonies, speeches, dances, and amplified music, your entertainment or DJ will need to provide their own equipment. If you have a DJ they will likely provide one for indoor use but we do have a system (projector, speakers, & microphone) you can rent from us for a $75 add on fee.
Our staff does not set up or tear down for your event, but our staff will regularly check bathrooms and be on call to ensure your guests have a good time and to handle any unexpected emergencies.
The nearest accommodations would be the lodging we have right here on site from modern large lodging facilities to cabins to camping. However, there are also a lot of hotels and VRBO’s in the area.
Yes with all of our packages you get the event space for your rehearsal dinner at no additional charge. You get access to the event space at 3:00 PM on Friday – 11:00 AM on Sunday. During off season, you can add the full Friday/Sunday (if available) for an additional charge(s).
Lit candles are not allowed. You can use sparklers outside if you pick up all the sticks. Fireworks are not allowed.
We do not require you to get insurance, but we do recommend it. As the host you are responsible for any accidents or incidents that are a result of your event.
We do not have a tent. You are able to rent them elsewhere and bring and assemble them.
Yes! We have two docks they can pick you up on – the one that works best is over by the boat house and the campfire area.
