Why You'll Love This Place
A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
If you're looking for a very special place, it's in Foresthill, a small hamlet about 40 minutes northeast of Sacramento. Here you'll find the historic Monte Verde Inn, which is, in a word, wonderful.
The property was originally a gathering spot for Native Americans, and after gold was discovered in 1849, it became a toll station and respite for travelers. A private residence was built on the site in 1936, and today this stately Georgian-style manor is a gracious reminder of the past. A glassed-in sun porch covers the front of the house, and makes a sparkling backdrop for photos of the bridal party.
The landscaped grounds have the feel of an English country estate: A long entry drive, lined with flowering plum trees, draws you back in time. Manicured lawns, 100-year-old quince trees, and a veritable tapestry of flowers (changed seasonally according to the whim of the owners) invite you to celebrate amidst a garden of earthly delights. For ceremonies try the patios—they're surrounded by tall cedars that form an informal outdoor cathedral. At night, "fairy lights" and turn-of-the-century streetlights create a glittering halo around dancing couples.
Food is a top priority here, and the inn's professional chef prepares all meals using only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients.
All these elements combined—the enchanting grounds, delicious cuisine, and enthusiastic service—create the Monte Verde Inn's successful mix of country charm and elegance.
NOTE: Monte Verde Inn is an LGBT-friendly venue.
