Q:Do we provide the food or do you have your own kitchen on site?
A:The Lodge is managed and operated by Eurest Dining Services, a division of Compass Group, the largest food service company in the world.
Q:What special deal can The Lodge offer a not-for-profit group?
A:As long as a group can provide a 5013(C) Form (TE) stating they are a not for-profit, we can generally offer a discount of 1/3 off the building fee.
Q:Can we be flexible with the menu, as we like to theme our events and have the food go along with it?
A:The Lodge specializes in customizing menus and welcomes the opportunity to be creative within your budget needs.
Q:How early can we get into The Lodge to set up, as we have vendors and silent auction tables to take care of?
A:This will depend on when and what you need to do. We do our best to find a location to store items—but this is often dictated by the nature of your event and any other business we may have that day.
Q:Do you do bar/bat mitzvahs? Retirement Parties? Birthday Parties?
A:Yes. We do many different kinds of social events here at The Lodge, as well as fundraisers and holiday parties.
Q:How far in advance do we have to let you know how many people are attending?
A:The general rule is approximately 10 days prior to your event date but a confirmed guaranteed number is due 4 days from the start of the event.
Q:How does the guarantee number work?
A:You guarantee us a specific number and that is the minimum number that you pay for. We set enough seats and food for 5% over the guaranteed number
Q:Do you have round tables, and, if so, how many people can they accommodate?
A:We have round tables that seat up to 10.
Q:Do you have a sound system large enough so that all of our people can hear the speaker?
A:Yes. Our speaker system can be heard throughout the gallery and fireplace area.
Q:What is the largest group of people that The Lodge can handle?
A:This depends on what type of meal you choose, the style of seating and other requirements in the room (i.e., staging, dance floor). The largest group for a buffet-style meal is 350 with no dance floor. We can do an event with some seating for up to 400 people.
Q:Can we decorate for our event at The Lodge?
A:Absolutely. We do have certain restrictions, so as not to alter the natural beauty of the building.
Q:How do I confirm the date?
A:Once you find a specific date that works for your event, a $1000 deposit is required in order to lock in the date.
