Parties or events
No loud music or loud noises on-site. The rule for this is simple: if someone in the next room or 20 yards away can hear you, then whatever you're doing is too loud. Out of respect for the other guests, for our neighbors and for the location (a fortified church where services are still held), you must behave decently and preserve the peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Guests are free to consume drinks and prepare their own food in the designated areas, but there will be no tolerance for visible and/or habitual drunkenness.
No candles are to be lit in the house. We've had fire damage and will not allow any flames of any sort indoors. The outdoor barbecue can only be fired under our supervision. If we aren't there, you are solely responsible for any fire damage that may occur. You will need to supply your own charcoal or wood.
