Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Highlighted by a lovely 1905 Arts-and-Crafts home designed by Julia Morgan, this 14-acre Gold Rush property once comprised part of the North Star Mine, one of the richest in California. Today, it's just as rich in beauty and charm, with an affordable price point that makes it a modern-day wedding jackpot.
  • Exchange vows in front of the dramatic wood-and-stone facade of the house, or opt to say "I do" elsewhere on the landscaped grounds. Celebrations extend from the courtyard onto the expansive, pine-framed lawn—glowing lanterns above and twinkle lights wrapped around the stone columns create a romantic vibe.
  • The whole property is yours on the big day, with plenty of time to get creative with décor and snap endless photos around the magnificent grounds. The in-house staff are happy to recommend favorite vendors, but you get the final choice, ensuring your day is exactly as you'd imagined.
