Your date is reserved once you sign the rental agreement & pay the non-refundable deposit.

Monthly open houses are held on the first Monday of the month from 5-7pm unless it is a holiday and then they are held the second Monday. From time to time, an event is scheduled and the open house date will be changed. We will post these date changes on our social media pages.
There is access to power in the Pavilion, on the deck and in the house. There is NO POWER at the outdoor ceremony area. You may utilize our wireless Bluetooth speaker or your DJ should have equipment that can accommodate this type of environment (make sure to let them know this in advance!)
It is your choice as to what time your ceremony will start. In the warmer months, we suggest an evening ceremony start time (After 5pm) while in the cooler months, it is perfectly acceptable to have an earlier ceremony, especially if it gets dark out earlier.
Prior to your event, you will receive a form to fill out that will give us all the details about your setup. We will set it up leave the linens you requested out for you!
You are allowed 1 hour on property the week of your wedding for your rehearsal. This is scheduled 90 days from the date of your wedding and is based on the venue’s schedule/availability. You may pay for additional time beyond your 1 hour if you would like to have your rehearsal dinner on site (again, this is based on venue availability).
No fireworks are allowed on the property (sparklers are permitted with advanced approval).
Generally, vehicles are not allowed to left overnight. However, we do know that there are situations that may arise in which this may be necessary. We take these on a case by case basis. Any vehicle left overnight must be moved by 9am the following morning – no exceptions.
Blount county noise ordinances require that amplified music must end by 10pm.
We try our best to accommodate rental drop-offs in advance of your event however we can only do so if it doesn’t interfere with another event being held. Each of these cases will be handled on an individual basis.
Candles are allowed however they must be in an enclosed container/holder. The only exception to this are taper candles – they can be utilized but you must place wax paper under the holder to keep wax from damaging table linens (you will be charged a replacement fee if wax ends up on any linens).
Confetti and silk flower petals are not allowed in the outside areas of the venue (they are not safe for animals or the environment and do not disintegrate) In the event that they are used in any indoor space, you are responsible for cleaning them up after your event.
Our tables are 5ft. round and comfortably seat 8 guests. You may choose to have 9 chairs per table but this does reduce the “elbow room” for each guest.
We will ask for an estimated guest count when you book your wedding. For planning purposes, we require a final head count 2 weeks prior to your wedding date.
Alcohol is only permitted with a licensed & insured bartender. This includes events only serving beer & wine. Any and all alcohol must be served by a licensed & insured professional bartender – no exceptions.
