We realize there are always questions you may have. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers.
How many people will the Lodge hold?
The Lodge can hold up to 350 guests for an indoor only event. Because we are located on over 10 acres, we can host indoor/outdoor events of over 800 guests. The possibilities are endless.
What is included with the rental price?
The rental price includes extended access time including 3-8pm on Friday(set-up only ) , 9am-midnight on Saturday and 9-11am on Sunday(for clean-up) for weekend events. Also included in the rental price is the use of up to 250 of the finest Mahogony Chiavari Chairs, 30-60" round tables and 10-8" rectangular tables for indoor use only. Multiple Ceremony sites available as well.
Can we bring in our own alcohol?
The Lodge Event Center is a licenced premiss for beer and wine. All beer and wine must be purchased in house. We will permit up to 4 Liquors to be brought in for the event, but this must be pre-approved and served by one of our TABC certified bartenders.
Are there accommodations near the Lodge?
The Lodge is very unique in that it is located on a private 200-acre ranch that has 42 cottages. You would be able to accommodate up to 150 of your guests on site. Also included on the propery are hot-tubs, a pool, b-b-q pits , out door fireplaces, elk, whitetail and axis deer. Perfect for any event with ample space for your use. Country Inn & Cottages requires a 2-night minimum stay on the Weekends and 3-night Minimum stay on Holiday Weekends.
Can we use sparklers for our departure?
We do permit the use of sparklers outdoors only. Gillespie County has been in a severe drought and is at times under a county burn ban. In this case, the sparklers would not be permitted.
Do you require that we use vendors from an approved vendors list or can we bring our own?
We do not require that you use vendors from an approved vendors list at this time. We do, however, offer a preferred vendors list. These are vendors that we have worked with in the past and feel they provide excellent service to our customers.
Are there any other associated fees attached when renting the Lodge?
In addition to the rental fee, the Lodge requires a $1,000 refundable security deposit when booking. This is in addition to the rental price and is not part of the rental fee. We also require security personnel at each event and day-of event lability insurance. Insurance typically costs $150.
