Flat-soled Shoes Only – No Small-Tipped Heels

Due to the delicate condition of the original golden oak flooring throughout the Mansion, high-heeled shoes are not allowed indoors at the Magic Chef. This is a zero tolerance area. You and your guests may bring ballet-type slippers or flats and leave the heels outside or in the car (there is no "shoe check" or "coat check" unless you arrange one). You must advise your guests of this policy in advance so they can select appropriate alternative shoes. Any damage caused by shoes of any type will be charged to you. Be comfortable! Wear flat-heeled shoes! Your feet and our floors will thank you.
