Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The natural outdoor settings, framed by Camelback Mountain's jagged peaks, feel like a set designer's fantasy. No wonder this vintage treasure once lured the likes of Clark Gable and Frank Lloyd Wright for a bit of relaxed glamour.
  • Want to soak up some vintage cool? The original bar, patio, and bocce lawn are just the ticket. For longer guest lists, reserve the Casa Paloma Pavilion with a series of patios and its own large lawn.
  • Enjoy authentic Southwestern cuisine made from organic, natural ingredients. Most of the produce is grown on site, including herbs from the utterly charming, private herb garden—which is also a great spot for an intimate ceremony.
