Mountain House Estate knows that events, especially weddings, are not inexpensive and the price can grow based on the number of guests invited and all the extras.

As a wedding venue, we completely understand the dynamics of budgeting for events.

In general, our wedding site fees are a great value. Our single-day rentals offer private use of the property and a generous number of usage hours. But we also include chairs, tables, bar stools, barrels, umbrellas, lighting, sound systems, multiple indoor bathrooms, lounge furniture, and more.

Here are a few budget-friendly ideas.

A Day Off

Saturdays are prime real estate for wedding venues and wedding professionals in general. They are in the most significant demand for weddings and because of that, our venue pricing is not negotiable.

However, a Friday night or even Sunday can be a considerable cost-cutting measure. We can be more flexible with our pricing and so can many of the wedding pros you might be considering.

Weekday weddings, whether for an intimate elopement or a rustic Sonoma wine country wedding allow us to be more flexible in our pricing.

If the majority of your wedding guests are taking time off to travel for your wedding, a weekday may be a win-win. Travel and accommodations may be less expensive for them mid-week, and they can take time and enjoy all that the Sonoma- Mendocino has to offer.

Brisk and Beautiful

Mountain House Estate also offers seasonal discounts from November through March. The weather is a little cooler but perfect weather for rustic weddings with fire pits, warm wines and ciders, cozy throws and delicious comfort foods.
