Adding an Event

The Country Cottage is not suitable for large day-use group events; however it can be a part of such an event, by offering additional accommodations to your guests who will stay the night. The Gated Country Estate is suitable for day-use group events up to 200 guests. The setting is availablethroughout the year and most of our bookings are for groups of family or friends who stay overnight and add a daytime event, like a corporate get-together, an intimate wedding or a very calm family-oriented anniversary orbirthday party. We do not make the property available solely for an event, nor do we ever authorize any other kind of party that involves more than minimal drinking and noise, as we are very conscientious about our home and our neighbors.

More people, means more wear and tear on our home and a greater risk of damage to furnishings or the property as a whole. Additional preparation and cleaning costs must be charged as events often require additional support in preparation, carpet cleaning, trash removal and extra housekeeping services. Often there are additional town rules that must be considered as larger groups may require special permits. We have prepared an event planner that will allow you to review how the event costs are calculated. There are some options that you can take to reduce the cost of your event. Please review the information at

For this reason, if you will use both properties and wish to hold an event, we charge an event fee, an event cleaning fee and an additional security deposit when authorizing an event. The security deposit is refundable based on meeting the terms of our agreement. Please email us with information about the type of event you wish to hold, a description of your plans, as well as the number of day-use guests you wish to host. Be sure you have included a daytime phone number and your email address so we can reach you to discuss your plans and provide you with a quote, if we feel that it is an event we can safely hold at this location.
