For a room block, Regatta Inn provides one of two options: a) block however many guest rooms you desire for a temporary time period with no accompanying room block contract. No discount will be provided for guest rooms and after the temporary block expires any unbooked rooms will reopen for public booking, or b) complete a room block contract which stipulates that all rooms for the designated night(s) will be blocked for your guests and your guests alone. This block will never expire. All guest rooms will be discounted by 10% for the designated one or two nights. Any rooms that go unbooked will be your financial responsibility upon checkout date. There is no deposit required for a room block contract as we collect first night deposit from your guests that book a room. The only deposit we collect from you is the first night deposit for any rooms you specifically want to pay for.

No, Regatta Inn does not provide additional rental items such as chairs, tables, tents, etc. The only additional items available to rent through Regatta Inn are restrooms, tiki torches, and mushroom heaters.
There is no associated fee for the venue manager. The venue manager is present to ensure everyone ‘follows the rules’ as well as assist in inn related issues such as electrical outlets, light switches, etc. Otherwise, he/she isn’t in charge of any day of activities including rental set-up, which is why we don’t charge an additional fee.
No, there’s no fee or additional requirements. However, with particular vendors it is important they plan a site visit to ensure they won’t run into any issues relating to how the Inn is arranged. For example, we don’t have any kitchen space, tent, tables, etc. Catering will need to provide all of that and ensure the space is suitable for them (placement is based on yours and their discretion). We also do not have an elevator.
There is no established rule regarding set up time therefore this will be negotiated with the venue manager.
There is no additional fee so long as a next day pick up is approved by the venue manager beforehand and he/she is aware of what pick-up time has been scheduled.
Does the 10:00 p.m. curfew include all breakdown time required by the rental company or is it just that guests must be vacated at this time?
That is the time all music needs to cease and guests need to exit the premises if they are not guests staying at the Inn. Rental pick-up needs to be arranged within 15 minutes of 10:00 PM for them to BEGIN their breakdown.
