Making a Reservation

We use our Vacation Rental software to manage the schedule for the Center on Vandeventer. When you enter your desired date, the reservation software will ask you for a checkout date. We know that you're not staying overnight, but enter the next date as a default (that's how vacation rental software works).

In the "Comments" section of your reservation, please give us details about your reservation to help us serve you better.

Thank you! We hope you'll find the Center to be the perfect venue for your next gathering!

For example: if you would like to reserve Saturday, February 15th for your party, on the booking screen, you will enter that as your "Check In" date, and enter February 16th as your "Check Out." Don't worry, we know you're not spending the night.
