We'd love it if you would mention that you found Quail Lodge on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
With 850 acres of lush gardens, tree-shaded lakes, rolling meadows, and a beautifully designed golf course, Quail Lodge has been a favorite Carmel Valley venue for over 50 years and a premier destination for weddings and other special events.
Located on the sunny side of the Monterey Peninsula in the scenic Carmel Valley, Quail Lodge offers a wonderful selection of indoor and outdoor settings, including Quail Meadows, a popular and picturesque ceremony site that takes advantage of the glorious weather. A peaceful lake plays host to the occasional blue heron or covey of resident quail, and tree-covered hillsides form a gentle wave along the horizon. Whether you add a flower-laden bridal arch or let the scenery form the backdrop, this splendid spot will take your breath away.
Quail's other scenic venues feature naturally inspired settings that are perfect for receptions, parties, and rehearsal dinners. From their intimate private rooms and outdoor terrace, you and your guests can enjoy tranquil garden and poolside views. Receptions for larger groups are held in the elegant Peninsula Ballroom, which boasts a cathedral ceiling and three walls of windows that showcase the spectacular surroundings. Wherever you gather, friends and family will be treated to exemplary service and the finest-quality fare. The chefs at Quail Lodge specialize in delicious local, organic California cuisine, and they lavish the same care on their event meals as they do at Edgar's, their popular on-site restaurant.
Not only will your loved ones leave your celebration feeling happy and satisfied, they'll also appreciate getting to extend their visit by staying in one of the Lodge's newly renovated California Ranch-style rooms or suites. Resort activities abound, from tennis to swimming to a genuine Land Rover Driving School. And if your guests would like to unwind with a round of golf the day before or after your festivities, Quail's recently refined 18-hole championship golf course is one of the most walkable and player-friendly courses on the Monterey Peninsula.
Quail possesses all the elements for a stellar destination event, but it's their professional planners who weave these elements together in a way that matches your vision. Combining attention to detail with creative sparkle, they'll transform your special occasion into something truly memorable.
