Stow Acres operates at a minimum guest count of 75-130 depending on the date and time of the event.  Please inquire.

 Reserving a Date

A $1000.00 deposit is needed to secure a date. Dates can be held without a deposit for five days, provided there are no other inquiries. The deposit is non-refundable in the event of a cancellation, unless we can re-book the room with another comparable function. In the case of a re-booking, half of your deposit will be refunded.

Bar Service

Open bar: You are billed for the drinks consumed by your guests plus a gratuity. A per person deposit ($10/person for 1 hour, $15/person for entire reception) is taken in advance and the remaining balance is paid the day of your function or a refund will be processed the following week in the office if the entire deposit is not used.  You can offer an open bar for all beverages, or you can offer complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks, with all other offerings available for cash purchase.

Cash bar: Your guests are asked to pay the server when the drinks are delivered. You are not responsible for any gratuities on cash bar service.


Dollar Amount: You can host a bar for a specific dollar amount.

Simply tell us how much you would like to spend on your open bar, and the when the amount is reached, the open bar converts to cash.

Wedding Ceremonies

It is possible to have your wedding ceremony at Stow Acres Country Club. The ceremony is set up in the main function room in a chapel style and we can accommodate up to 250 guests. Our outdoor patio area can seat up to 150 for ceremonies.  We can provide a skirted banquet table to be used as an "altar", and you can bring any additional items you might need. Additionally, we offer the use of our archway, which can be decorated by your florist to enhance the ceremony area.  Rehersals are available Thursday until 6:00 pm or Fridays until 5:00 pm at the latest.  Due to other scheduled events, we cannot confirm a rehersal time/date until 1 month prior.
