Frequently Asked Questions
"How many people does your venue hold?"
We have ample on-site parking to accommodate large groups, and tables/chairs for up to 250 guests.
"Can I choose my own caterer?"
Absolutely! Outside catering is always welcomed and we never charge any gratuities or corkage fees. While we recommend that our couples choose a professional caterer who is licensed and insured, we are also open to those who wish to self-cater. This is your special day and we want you to have an event that reflects your unique taste!
"What kitchen facilities are available?"
Creekside Estate is an outdoor venue and there is no licensed kitchen on-site, however we do have a tented food prep area that includes a fridge, chest freezer and a grill as well as access to running water and electricity. 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 - but no hard liquor, please! All alcoholic beverages must be served by a licensed and insured bartender and all bartending services must be contracted directly through our preferred staffing company, Barn Door Events. Bartending rates are as follows: $25 per hour for one bartender, $40 per hour for 2 bartenders (with a 4 hour minimum per event). Creekside Estate requires two contracted bartenders for any event exceeding 150 guests.
"Who is responsible for set up and clean up?"
We are happy to set up chairs, tables, linens and tents (if desired) for the ceremony/reception and tear down those items at the end of the event. The client will be responsible for returning the property to the state that it was provided to you. This includes placing all trash in designated containers, cleaning and returning any items borrowed from Creekside Estate, and removing all decorations as well as any rented items from the property at the end of your rental period.
"I want to book with Creekside Estate. What do I need to do?"
In order to reserve your date, we will need a signed rental agreement and non-refundable 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 we have to cancel or postpone our event?"
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/availability and within one year of original booking) if desired.
"Are there any additional requirements to rent the property?"
You will also need to obtain general liability insurance with host liquor coverage for the day of your event in the amount of $1,000,000. Please provide a copy of the certificate of insurance at least 60 days prior to the event.
