We have had weddings, baby showers, wine tasting events, retirement parties, birthday parties, corporate events & non-profit organization events. We have also had requests for private dinners and wedding rehearsal dinners.
2). How large of group can you handle?
Our capacity is about 75. We are a very intimate setting and can't handle large weddings or dinners.
3). Do you provide catering? Do allow alcohol and beverages?
We don't provide catering; we have worked with a number of caterers and many of our events were self catered meaning the parties brought in their own food, beverages etc and we provided the space. Yes we allow alcohol, but a licensed bartender must to do the serving. We can recommend bartenders that have worked our venue. If you need one let us know.

We have a number of "popup " tents which are included in the hourly rate as are our tables and chairs. We have space enough for at least 8-12 tables sitting 6-8 per table plus small cocktail type tables. The tables can be situated throughout the garden, patio areas etc. Other tents and canopies can be used in the gardens. We suggest round tables, we have a few small round tables and approx. 6--- 6 to 8 foot long tables for use.

We have a small carriage house on the site which has approximately 800 sq/ft which has a bathroom, small kitchen and an area for folks to gather in, this space can also be used by the caterers.

6). What is your hourly rate?
We charge $375 per hour with a three hour minimum. This includes the use of the gardens, carriage house and if necessary the use of our parlors, dining room and bathroom. A deposit of 1/2 of the rental fee is requested to reserve the site for your event. The deposit is not refundable in the event you cancel or due to inclement weather. We charge 1/2 of the hourly rate for set-up by the caterers, bartenders, etc. instead of a full hourly rate. We also have a "package" rate if you have guests who would like to use our 2 Airbnb's for their stay for your event. Contact us for that information.
