Rental Rules for 2016

posted Dec 27, 2015, 9:58 AM by Jeff Stockman

Hello Everyone,


       Just a reminder that you can start to make reservations on January 1st at 12:00 AM and it is on a first come first serve basis. This year please only use calling or email.  I have decided to take texting out of New Year’s only. Because of the high volume of people contacting me all at midnight it will just be easier to keep time stamps straight with two ways instead of three.  Please note though that as of January 4th anyone is welcome to call, email, or text me.  The Lake House, small Pavilion and the large pavilion are the only buildings that are able to be rented on July 4th, and they rent for that date quick, so be the first to get the date. The cost for the lake house on that date is $125.00 and the pavilions are $75.00, all guest fees apply along with the reservation fee. The pricing remains the same as last year, which is $25 nonrefundable reservation fee, which is due immediately after making a reservation to hold your date. The remaining fees are $4 per nonmember guest (under 3 and over 60 are free) which is due the day of your party. As of this year we are implementing a $75.00 refundable cleaning deposit. This is due to many problems with people not following the cleaning check list that is posted in each building and leaving an unacceptable mess.  This check will be either given back to you or shredded by our Treasurer if the area that was rented is acceptably clean. All correspondence and fees can be mailed to the Treasurer, Shelly Thomas at The Salem Country Club - PO Box 994 Salem. You can now view the reservation calendar on the Club's website to check availability; I keep it updated frequently so you can have an idea of what is available before contacting me. The Club's website is and go under “reservation calendar". You may also download the guest sign in sheet under groups and the doc’s page of the website. My contact information to make your reservation is:

If you have any Questions please feel free to e-mail or call anytime and I would be happy to answer them for you.


Thank You

When you fill out your guest list we do need the names of those guests who are members as they are needed in the total count. You will not have to pay for them.  We do, however, need the number of total member and nonmember guests so we can be staffed appropriately.  If you do not know if your guests are Club members, you can request a list from Shelly Thomas. As they check in at the welcome center, we will get the exact number that arrived.  You will not be billed for nonmember guests on your list that did not arrive.    Along with your application you need to note any requests, such as extra picnic tables around the Clubhouse, if you need a fire in the fireplace, etc.  The club house currently has 10 tables and 64 chairs available.  The Lake house has 6 tables and 48 chairs. Tables and chairs cannot be taken from one building to another but you are welcome to bring additional tables and chairs as required.  You are responsible for setting up and taking down the tables and chairs. If you need more than that you will need to provide them.  The Club House and Lake House have tables and chairs, a dedicated refrigerator, sink with running water, microwave, counter space and outlets for crock pots.  The Club House has a stove with oven, fireplace, and restrooms. We do not provide table service or linens. Anything beyond that is your responsibility.    The kitchen is open to all club members regardless of who has the clubhouse reserved. The refrigerator inside the kitchen of the club house is open for use by any and all other members at any time.

Thank you
