What is your venues' capacity?
We are able to provide for small groups, up to 40, or so, guests, attending a wedding or a one day event.
However, depending on how, and if you are planning multiple nights stays & how you'd like to arrange for you and your guest's overnight accommodations, Altimeter Cabin can sleep six, the rv site can accommodate a 30' rv, and there are six camp sites that can accommodate 2-4 persons per site. There is also ample other lodging properties very close to our venue.
Absolutely! We have several caterers in the area, or your wedding planner may set up their own. While we recommend that our guests choose a professional caterer that is licensed and insured, we are also open to those who wish to self-cater.
What kitchen facilities are available?
Altimeter Cabin has a small kitchen, but is not designed for a group event. The majority of your event will be held in and around the Mountain Gazebo. Your event is considered an outdoor event. There is no licensed kitchen onsite. We are planning to add however a vintage trailer which will have access to running water that will include a propane bar-b-q grill. We are happy to offer these amenities to visiting caterers and those who wish to bring in their own food.
What is your policy on alcohol?
You are welcome to bring in your favorite beer, cider, wine and champagne. We ask you to moderate the hard liquor you will serve, please. All alcoholic beverages must be served by a licensed and insured bartender. Creekside Estate requires two contracted bartenders for any event exceeding 150 guests.
How is set up and clean up handled?
Creekside Estate will set up tables and chairs for your event, and tear down those items at the end of the evening. The client will be responsible for returning the property (as well as the Bridal Suite and Groom's Cottage) to the state that it was provided to you. This includes clearing tables, removing your linens, placing all trash in designated containers, cleaning and returning any items borrowed from Creekside Estate, and taking with you all personal items at the end of the evening.
How do I reserve my date?
In order to hold your date, we will need a signed rental agreement and reservation fee in the amount of 50% of the package price. Final payment and a $1000 (refundable) damage deposit is due 90 days prior to your scheduled event.
What happens if I need to cancel or postpone?
We understand that sometimes life happens and although our reservation fee is non-refundable, Creekside Estate will gladly offer a one time change of date (subject to current pricing and availability) if desired.
What are your venue's insurance requirements?
You will need to obtain general liability insurance in the amount of $1,000,000. The policy must include host liquor coverage (if you are planning to serve alcohol at your event) and name Creekside Estate and Vineyard LLC as an additional insured. If coverage is not available through your existing renters or homeowners insurance, a single day event policy can be purchased through www.eventhelper.com or www.wedsafe.com. A copy of the certificate of insurance must be submitted to Creekside Estate at least 60 days prior to your event.
