General Rules

Work with the house manager on the arrangements for your event. You must contact the manager at least two weeks before your function to verify all final details.

The event time must include set-up and clean-up time. You must confer with your caterer about the time needed for set-up and clean-up and include that in your booked time.

According to the Town of Arlington Bylaws, there cannot be undue noise after 11 p.m. The house closes at midnight, unless special arrangements are made with the function manager.

The maximum number of people that can be accommodated indoors is 100. The house can accommodate 90 for a sit-down meal (including seating on the front porch). Two hundred people can be accommodated if a tent is used on the side yard. The parlors can be used for dancing.

Rental of tables, chairs and tents (if used) for functions is your responsibility. Refer to the "Caterer Guidelines" for a listing of tables and chairs available on site.
