YOU MAY HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR US
Before you begin planning your event, we may be able to provide some answers for you with the questions below. If you have additional questions, we are happy to assist you. We have also included some downloads we believe may be helpful.
Q. WHAT IS YOUR CAPACITY?
A. Peter Allen Inn’s Heritage Hall is the perfect setting for intimate weddings of up to 68 guests (or 100 people on the entire property), or celebrations such as an engagement party, bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. The Canopy, our soaring white tent, can host up to 300 guests for events between May and October.
Q. WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A WEDDING RENTAL?
A. All indoor receptions include one-hour planning and rehearsal with on-site coordinators, a list of our select vendors, two-hour use of dressing suite, 60 inch round tables with floor-length ivory or white tablecloths and napkins, padded chairs, place settings, glassware, and silverware. Additional amenities and services include planning and on-site wedding coordinators; suites for preparation, the Garden House for your ceremony with limited seating, the Stone Courtyard with sunshades for cocktails, the Kinsman Tavern for lingering, and Heritage Hall for dinner.
Q. IS THE RENTAL OF A CEREMONY TENT REQUIRED, IF SO WHAT IS INCLUDED?
A. The Garden House on the Great Lawn is an ideal setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Included with your rental are a frame tent and padded, garden chairs for your guests so they are protected in case of hot sun or inclement weather.
Q. DOES MY WEDDING NEED TO BE CATERED BY THE PETER ALLEN?
A. With the exception of your wedding cake and cookies, all food, and beverages must be provided by our team or one of our preferred caterers.
Q. WHAT ARE THE BAR OPTIONS?
A. There are many choices depending on what you would like to provide, such as a traditional open bar, pay by consumption package, wine service, cash bar or any combination. We also offer a Signature Drink add-on! Bar service is limited to a maximum of 6 hours, shots are not permitted and guests should be prepared to provide proof of age upon request.
Q. ARE THERE OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATIONS AVAILABLE FOR MY GUESTS?
A. There are two suites in the original house and a one-bedroom suite in the new addition. The Stone Cottage, an additional historic property with two elegantly appointed suites and spa baths, will be available in Winter 2017. Transportation to neighboring hotels, guest houses, and motels can be coordinated with planning staff.
Q. IS THERE A DEPOSIT REQUIRED?
A. We do require a non-refundable deposit of $1000 for Saturday weddings and $500 for all other dates, which is applied toward the total cost of your event. A second deposit of 50 percent of your approved proposal balance is due 120 days before your event. At this time a current valid credit card will be put on file. The final balance of your event is due upon conclusion of the event. All deposits are non-refundable.
