Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Specializing in intimate events for 50 or fewer, this historic space in Topanga Canyon has a rich and colorful history: the stunning Spanish Colonial Revival-style home at it core was originally constructed as a posh country club, but has also served as a youth retreat, a theater, a nightclub, and a gambling house.
  • In addition to the main house, you’ll find lush, inviting grounds that boast delightful secrets at every turn—including extensive meandering paths, dozens of water features, and a dazzling array of flowering plants and mature trees.
  • It’s a designated California Point of Historical Interest, and your rental helps preserve it. Among the countless contributions the Mermaid has made to the community: a pesticide-free Butterfly House and butterfly garden habitat, which serve as way-stations for essential migrating pollinators.
