Security Deposit:

To reserve the grounds for an event we require a signed contract and $1,000 refundable security deposit. The security deposit is due in addition to the rental fee for the event. If there is no damage to the house or grounds after the event, the deposit will be refunded approximately 14 days after the event. If you’ve paid the security deposit and decide to cancel your event, the deposit will only be refunded if another event is booked for that date. 


We have on-site parking for approximately 30 cars.

House Rules:

  • No access inside the house will be permitted at any point during the event. This means you must provide your own restroom solution (unfortunately, our ancient plumbing cannot support it). Restroom solutions (ranging from port-a-potties to luxurious mobile restrooms with proper plumbing) can easily be delivered to the property. 
  • Alcohol service must end 30 minutes prior to contracted end time of the event.
  • All events must end by 10:00pm. After 9:00pm music volume must be substantially lowered according to the neighborhood’s ordinances.
  • You are required to provide General Liability insurance coverage (including Host Liquor Liability, if you plan to serve alcohol) for your event. Historic Upsala Mansion will be listed as an Additional Insured for Liability. We must receive this certificate at least 14 days prior to your event. This type of insurance is quite common, and easily purchased online.
