Clubhouse Availability and Rental

The Dune Acres Clubhouse is a three-story, Bungalow/American Craftsman-style building, constructed in 1925. It was the first permanent structure built in Dune Acres and, since then, has been the social center of the community. The Clubhouse grounds are open for the enjoyment of Town residents each day from sunrise to sunset, weather permitting. For the 2017 summer season (May 1st through Labor Day), the Clubhouse itself will be open each Wednesday from 4:30 pm until sunset. The Town encourages residents and their guests to enjoy the sunset, have picnics or dinners, with access to toilet and kitchen facilities. An adult resident must be present at all times in instances where minors are utilizing the site.

Rentals

The Clubhouse may be rented for social events by residents of Dune Acres. Under special circumstances, town residents may sponsor rentals on behalf of friends or family members.

The Clubhouse is available for private, non-commercial rental only during the months of April through November.

Please note, nothing may be removed from the Clubhouse for private use at any time. Chairs and tables, etc. are not available for private use.

The maximum safe accommodation at the Clubhouse is 150 occupants.

A Dune Acres Clubhouse rental application/agreement must be submitted to the rental coordinator, except for parties with fewer than twenty-five attendees, which can be coordinated directly with the Clerk-Treasurer. The application/agreement are available by clicking here, or requesting the forms from the Clerk-Treasurer or the Clubhouse rental coordinator.

In the past, we filled many of the available weekends, so let me know your preferences as you make plans. First come, first choices, etc.

Since our clubhouse is a non-profit, town facility which the Town maintains and keeps available for all of us to use, our overall requirement is that people put everything back the way it was before their event. There is no regular "staff"—it’s just me and other residents who volunteer time to make this work.

So thank you for reading. If you have questions, please call me.
