Event Restrictions:

*Non-compliance of the following event restrictions will result in the loss of the $500 deposit in full, plus any damages.

  • NEVER EVER move the conference room furniture (couches, upholstered chairs) OUT of the conference room at ANY TIME!
  • The use of silly string, sky lanterns, confetti, imitation flowers, glitter, rice, or scattered decorative ornamentation is strictly prohibited.
  • No tape or tacks may be used on the walls of any room.
  • Candles must be in fire-proof containers. Containers must exceed the height of the flame by 2 inches.
  • If your reception is using beer kegs, place them on the cement only.
  • Bring all wine, beer and liquor bottles back with you to dispose of. Do not put them in the trash.
  • NEVER leave standing water on laminate flooring. Water damages hardwood and laminate flooring
  • Absolutely NO tents, air mattresses, cars, dance floors, tarps, tables or other such items on the wedding sites (gazebo or view site) at the Hilltop House
  • Hilltop House: Please do not drive up to the storage house by the gazebo by way of the wedding path area. You may drive around back (north side) to load chairs in a vehicle and get close to the storage house.
  • Do not move piano in Hilltop or Main Lodge conference room, even a little bit!  There are wheels on the base of the pianos but they are for tuning only. Pianos are very delicate and moving them slightly means they get out of tune or they can get damaged.
  • Main Lodge: ALWAYS leave a fire lane open in the driveway and through the turn-around by the Main Lodge. Park by tennis courts and reception parking in field.
  • Please reduce the volume of amplified music and celebration of your guests at 10 pm and move the party inside the buildings. Our neighbors would appreciate it.
