I am just curious here. I received another inquiry today to hold a “small” wedding. I emailed back to ask the guest count and total number staying the night. The reply was that it would be less than 50 people, and only she would be staying the night by herself. Of course the answer is no.
But I get these inquiries every once in a while. Some have been for other occassions too - with maybe over 25 people in attendance. My rental sleeps 6 maximum and has two bedrooms. What I have noticed is that nobody ever offers to pay more in the intial inquiry. They don’t even say “I understand it may cost more and could you please send me a quote.” Nothing. So do these people think they are going to rent a place for a wedding for a regular nightly fee?
I can see some being willing to pay a little bit more, but I wonder if there are other hosts out there who are allowing these events for only a small price? Or even for nothing at all? Maybe not 50 people…but let’s say 25 guests to come over for a 4 hr. catered dinner. Would you allow?
