Lodge Rental > Policies

 

Policies

Buildings can be rented between May 15-October 15 for any 5-hour period between 8:00 am and midnight. Check with staff for availability of dates outside of the ones offered.

Insurance regulations mandate that any event where alcohol is being served cannot exceed a 5-hour period. A Certificate of Insurance is mandatory in order to serve alcohol under any circumstances.

The Facility Agreement Form states the amount of coverage and other information. This coverage can be acquired from most insurance companies.

Set-up, deliveries or rehearsals can be done in the days prior to your event during regularly scheduled office hours (Mon-Fri, 8-4) as long as it does not interfere with another event. If you need to schedule  time outside of regularly scheduled office hours, there will be a $35/hour charge.  Your caterer will have access to the facility for 2 hours prior to the beginning of your event at no extra charge.  If they need earlier access, it will be an additional $35 per hour. Due to insurance regulations, no guests can be allowed access to the facilities until your event contract begin time.  

Please read this section carefully because it provides basic information that will be helpful in planning your event.
