Rental Information for Rooms and Events at Chelsea Depot
A Great Getaway Location
Chelsea Depot is the perfect location to host your reunions, showers, birthday parties, anniversaries, business meetings, weddings, wedding receptions, craft shows, memorials and showers. We offer affordable weekend and weekday daily rates and special rates for non-profit group events.
There is a required, refundable security deposit that must be paid when making your reservation, and the depot building must be left the same way it was prior to your event.
This means that all garbage must be removed and that you should return the key to get your security deposit paid back to you.
See below for details.
Additional Policies and Details Regarding Chelsea Depot
Rental fees are $150 Sunday-Thursday and $300 on Fridays and Saturdays, plus an additional cleaning fee of $50. Non-profits are half price. Your required and refundable security deposit is $150 to hold the date. Cancellations for previously established reservations must be made one week in advance to receive your security deposit refund.
All trash must be removed from the building at the end of your event to receive your security deposit refund.
There is no smoking allowed in the Chelsea Depot building or within 50 feet of the building.
Amenities include an on-site kitchen with a full size fridge, a small freezer, a holding/warming oven, a sink and trash bags. Paper towels and hand soap are also provided. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own crock pots and such for occasions involving meals. You can also hire your own caterer for the event! The depot is heated and air conditioned and includes a movie screen, but guests must bring their own projector for any slideshow. The building's large East end event room is carpeted, and the smaller West end room has the original hardwood flooring. The larger event room is perfect for the large gathering space for your event while you can serve the food or reserve the smaller room for dancing! The entire building has a spacious 15 ft. ceiling and many windows. The wrap-around ticket counter and windows enclose the kitchen.
Trains still go by our location for that true train station experience, so we kindly ask that all guests stay away from the train tracks for their safety. Gathering areas are also located outside with benches. Necessary chair and table costs are built into your rental fees, and we also provide handicap-accessible on-site parking, clean restrooms and flexible layout options for everything that you need to make your party, wedding, shower or event one to remember for years to come!
