EVENT SPACE/WHOLE HOUSE RENTAL:

Policies and Regulations

We are very happy to be part of your event. Please read the following contract carefully and feel free to ask any questions before committing. A non-refundable 50% deposit along with a signed Event Space/Whole House Rental Contract is required to reserve the event date and time. Any written or verbal communication, without a signed and initialed contract and deposit accepted by Central Schoolhouse Inn, is a quote only and not a reservation. Final payment is due to CSI/LLC on the day of the event when the Renter and their agents/caterers are ready to vacate the premises. We delay final payment to this time in order that any overtime charges or add-on rental items can be included in the balance due. Cash, check and credit cards are accepted, check being the preferred method of payment. If Renter cancels or reduces reserved days/spaces, no refunds will be made, unless we are able to re-rent any portion of the reserved dates/spaces and that refund will be limited to value of the re-rented dates/spaces. Please note that if you have reserved any Bed & Breakfast bedrooms in conjunction with your event there is a $35 cancellation fee for each room per day.

Please be aware that CSI/LLC is a non-smoking facility, no pets are allowed, and we are not handicapped accessible other than an entrance ramp. There are no handicapped restrooms available. If any guests under age 18 attend your event Renter assumes responsibility for keeping them in the designated event areas.
