On site accomodations usually means there’s a place for guests to sleep overnight (i.e. hotels, cabins, etc.).

It would be very rare for a venue to include overnight accomodations for anyone but the bride and groom. So I’d definitely look carefully at what that 7k includes.

ruphiolis:  Unless that $7000 is to rent the entire space (possible if it was something like a large B&B or very small hotel), I wouldn’t assume the overnight accomodations are included in that price, just that they are available to add on.

If you’re unclear about anything in a proposal/contract, your best bet is to ask the venue directly. 

In my area, $7,000 for just the space is normal/possibly even a bit below average, so depending on where you are, it could very well be just the space.  But “on site accomodations” sounds to me like there are rooms available to sleep in (though they may be at an additional cost).
