Additional Information

If liquor is to be served to the public, a permit has to be secured from the Town of Lenox for your event.

This costs $25 per event and has to be applied for three weeks in advance. Our event coordinator will assist you with this process. A licensed bartender or caterer is required to serve the liquor and has to be named on the application.

It is possible for the caterers to bring necessary materials before the event and to have them picked up later. However, this must be scheduled in advance as our space for storage is severely limited.

  • 15 – 54 inch round tables which seat 8 people

Important Notes

No one is allowed into the closed portions of the building for any reason at any time. Ventfort Hall Association must have a board member or staff person on the premises during the event. The building must not be left open or unattended at any time.

No decorations may be attached to any walls, doors, or windows with tape, staples, nails or any other material. The customer is responsible for replacing or paying for the repair of anything that may be damaged or broken.

Tents are not allowed on the property. No music or noisy activity is allowed outside. Music inside must not be so loud that it affects the building. Ventfort Hall retains the right to ask for the volume to be regulated if necessary.

No smoking is allowed inside the mansion. If there are smokers outside or on the porch the butts must all be placed safely in ashtrays provided for that purpose.
