The Stoney Hill Road House is available for special events such as wedding receptions with a minimum seven day rental. During July and August, there will be a two week minimum rental period requirement if the wedding reception is to be held on a Saturday or Sunday with the event falling on the middle weekend. This maintains the ability to turn the property over on a weekend. However, a seven day minimum rental in July or August is still possible for your wedding if you hold the event mid week.
When a wedding reception or other event is scheduled, there are two agreements between the tenant and the owner. The first is the standard rental agreement for the house. The second agreement covers the details of the specific event like a wedding reception. In this second agreement, there are specific provisions related to the event such as maximum number of guests, whether the event is held indoors or out (or both), size of tent (if any), number of portable bathrooms, parking arrangements and the insurance policy requirement. A one day insurance policy is required for all events (no exceptions) which provides $1.0 MM in liability insurance for the benefit of the owner. These are standard policies which can be purchased for under $500 per event. The cost for the "Event Agreement" does not include tents, portable toilets or transportation. The owner is happy to work with the tenant and her surrogates to help plan and schedule site visits by vendors as needed.
GENERAL PRICING GUIDELINES FOR AN EVENT
A minimum seven day standard lease at the appropriate seasonal pricing plus
$1,500 for less than 50 people (no portable toilet or tent required)
$2,500 for between 50 to 100 people (at least one portable toilet required)
Guests in excess of 100 will carry a $20/head cost (more toilets and a tent required)
As an example, for a Saturday wedding in September for less than 50 people, the general cost would be about $7,450 which would be $5,950 for the house and $1,500 for the event.
These are general guidelines for event pricing. There is a great deal of space for tents so much larger events are possible but there are some excellent alternative venues that specialize in big Martha's Vineyard wedding receptions. In particular, please visit Martha's Vineyard Preservation Trust (www.mvpreservation.org) to see its collection of fine wedding sites. There are many local resources available to help you plan your special event by visiting Martha's Vineyard Online (MVOL).
