Private Event Venue Rentals

The Chautauqua Women’s Club is happy to offer our clubhouse for In-Season Private Events and Off-Season Whole-House Private Rentals.  

All private events, both in season and off-season, are booked through the House Administrator who coordinates all bookings with the CWC president using the club calendar.  All bookings are on a first-come, first-served basis, giving CWC activities first priority. 

The House Administrator supplies potential seasonal private event renters and off-season whole-house renters with contract information, details, and suggestions to assure a successful event and is on-site during these events to welcome guests and handle any issues that may arise.
