Amazing views highlight this special property. Enjoy world-class sunsets from this secluded, well-sized property - a modern house sitting on top of a hill that overlooks miles of hills and forest.
Booking Times: Each booking is a minimum 5-hour time slot, inclusive of set-up + breakdown.
Guest Count: Up to 30 people max (including kids). If going above 30, there's an additional $150 per hour rate to accommodate a max of 40 people.
Square Footage + Layout: Approximately 1300 square feet, with an open & flat layout.
Parking: The house is up a hill, and the entry road to the house is a narrow one-way street. There is a max 3 car parking close to the backyard door. And is used for vendor parking and elderly/other guests who really need it. The rest of the parking is a few minutes of a hilly walk.
Q. Can I come to view the site before booking?
Yes. A $65 charge through Venmo/Zelle to come visit is refundable if you hold the event at this venue.
Q. Can I get my own food and drinks (alcoholic/nonalcoholic)?
Yes, snacks and beverages: feel free to bring anything you like! All alcohol consumption must be 21+ years of age. Light snacks, charcuterie, full catering, or a full dinner spread can be nicely placed on the outdoor bar ledge.
Q. Can I heat my catered food?
There is a microwave, warmer, and electric chafing dishes add-on for a rate. I recommend using the cooking range's integrated warming drawer, which measures 30x11.625 inches, in the outdoor kitchen for any bread. Use our chafing dishes to keep the food warm throughout your event. You can also consider an outdoor fridge to keep your desserts, cake, etc., chilled.
Q. Can I come ahead of my party time to set up the decorations?
Setup and tear-down time are included in the booking. Typically, guests require an hour to set up and an additional hour to clean up the space and return it to its original condition.
Q. Can we play music? Some people may want to dance.
DJ and loud music are not allowed. The use of Bluetooth speakers usually does a good job. We provide a BT speaker, and you can also bring your own.

Yes. See the listing pictures.
