Woodend Sanctuary & Mansion

Thank you for considering Woodend for your event. Once you fill out and submit this form, you will receive an email with more details, fees, list of approved caterers, and the link for you to book a tour of Woodend. 

Please note that bookings on evenings and weekends include the mansion, and the tent from April through November (tent not available Dec-Mar). Therefore, booking just one room within the venue, or just the tent, is only permitted Monday-Thursday during business hours (9am-5pm).

  • If your event requires a kosher-certified caterer, the only one currently approved is Medina Cuisine. This vendor requires a 3-hour window to set-up prior to your invitation time (instead of 2 hours like most caterers), which leaves you with 4 hours for your event (instead of 5 hours), with the last hour for vendor-only clean-up. If you foresee your event to last more than 4 hours, you will need to book the venue for at least one additional hour.
  • We include our fully-equipped tent in all evening and weekend events between April and November, but the caterer is responsible for all the catering-related equipment, including all tables and chairs.
  • If you (or your planner) plan on renting tables yourself from a separate vendor instead of letting the caterer handle those, please note that they have to be delivered and picked-up within your contracted hours. Based on experience, you are better off letting the caterer handle it; they have the expertise and experience. They will adjust the number of tables and tablecloths if your guest count changes; they will make sure the tables will fit within the event space. Will you want to be doing that a few weeks before your event day? Will you want to take the chance of not having enough tables or tablecloths because guests RSVPd at the last minute and you forgot to contact the table vendor to add another table, and forgot to ask the caterer to add more tablecloth, china, napkins... you see where this is going. This applies to all event equipment. Let the professionals do this work for you.
  • Inquiries are monitored during business hours.
  • Tours are available by appointment only. Tours on weekends are not available due to private events like yours.
  • Woodend offices are closed on evenings, weekends, most federal holidays, and between Christmas and New Year's for maintenance.

If your rental needs are not related to a special occasion such as the celebration of a milestone, graduation party, memorial, baby-shower, etc., please return to https://woodendsanctuary.org/contact-us/ and choose the option that best fits your rental needs (corporate, wedding, general inquiries). Thank you.
