Mountain House Estate, an outdoor California wedding venue located in Cloverdale, CA, has just been awarded the prestigious Diamond Certified symbol after being rated highest in quality in a customer satisfaction rating performed by American Ratings Corporation. Mountain House Estate is the only venue out of all venues nationwide and all California wedding venues to achieve this award.

In order to earn Diamond Certified, a local service company must apply to be rated by American Ratings Corporation (ARC) and pass each step of its twelve-step rating and certification process.   ARC actually pulls a random sample of past customers from the applicant company’s files and surveys typically 100 customers by telephone. Not only do the customers rate the applicant company on a 1 to 10 scale for quality, but also they indicate their willingness to return or refer other consumers to the company. Most companies can’t pass the rating because a customer satisfaction survey score of greater than 90 on a 100 scale is required.  In addition, ARC verifies liability and workers’ compensation insurance, state license status, complaint status, business practices, financial stability and legal judgment status. Additionally, ongoing customer satisfaction surveys are conducted to ensure the Diamond Certified Company is maintaining its high customer satisfaction.

“Mountain House Estate is pleased to earn this prestigious award. We want each couple to feel like a guest at their own wedding, so we approach every step of the process with that in mind. Ultimately, everything we do is designed to ensure our couples and their guests have a wonderful experience at our Northern California wedding venue,” said John Alden, owner of Mountain House Estate.

“Personally, I’ve been focused on rating local service companies for the past 20 years and I’m always impressed at how certain organizations are so focused on satisfying their customers. Mountain House Estate is one of those special companies,” said Jim Stein, founder and CEO of American Ratings Corporation.
