Rates for Axton Lodge, "The Pines"

Our rates vary depending on the type of event, how many guests and what is required of Axton Lodge as far as setting up and cleaning up.  We also have workers who can set up and work your reception as well as clean up afterwards.  This is especially good where you are doing your own catering and are not sure who will be getting your food warmed and on trays, hot or cold. Keep the food coming out, picking up and bussing tables as well as cutting your cake. 

The rental offers you not only the venue but the option to use our tables, chairs, linens, chair covers and sashes, dinnerware, (Glass and silver) center pieces, vases and mason jars, bling, and many more items to numerous to mention.  They are all on the property for your use at no additional charge.  The outdoors comes with beautiful flowers, water fall, archways. We have stumps, lanterns, other archways, etc for your use. Getting them out and returning them afterwards will be up to you or your party unless you would like to pay our other help. This should be discussed at the time of booking or at least 3 weeks prior when the final balance is paid.

We get 1/3 down as a deposit which is NON-REFUNDABLE; On weddings over a year away, there is a $500 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to hold your date. The rest of the 1/3 deposit is due in January of the year you are planning your wedding. The remaining balance is due no later than 3 weeks prior to your wedding.  We do offer installments if you would like to pay as you go along.

While all rates above reflect heating and air conditioning of THE LODGE, we would like to point out, that we can heat and add more heaters to our central heat, heat rises; BUT, we can only cool to about 20 degrees below the outdoor temperature, no matter how many air conditioners we add.  Part of the beauty of The Lodge is the open and high roof and beams.  You may want to take the time of year in consideration when planning your wedding and booking your date.  The downstairs stays very cool as cold air goes down.  We do have central heat and air in THE LODGE only

At this time THE HAYLOFT does not have central heating and air.  We have many types of fans, both ceiling, floor and roof.  If you plan to use it during the summer consider making your wedding and reception later in the day, like 6 or 7 pm.   

ABC License

ABC License is not required if you are not supplying alcohol or there is to be none present on the premises  
 You must have an ABC License if you are having a non-profit function to raise money for Charity, alcohol may be sold. This license allows you to buy from distributors, sell to your guest. 
The ABC Board Now Requires that any function serving alochol obtain a license.  All weddings, receptions, birthday parties, anniversary dinners, bastumos. Fista De Cumpleanos, where alochol is to be served must have this license and make it present to us prior to their event.  You may go to VA ABC to apply. Many times, if you need more than one keg this is the most economical way to go. You may not sell alcohol at these functions.

Distributors will bring it out on Friday, Ice it down in their big coolers on wheels, with bar taps and pick it back up on Monday. There are approx. 265 - 8 oz cups in a keg. You may also buy wines as well as other items from them.
