But aside from the aesthetics of our property, our wedding couples love that get to work with venue owners John and Lane, rather than a corporate-owned wedding venues.

Husband/wife team John and Lane are the perfect yin and yang. Lane works tirelessly with the wedding couples and John oversees (and is hands-on) maintenance at the estate. It takes a lot of work to keep 40-acres picture-perfect for your wine country wedding!

“It was love at first sight! From the absolute perfect and beautiful scenery to working with John and Lane. They made every part of this experience the best we could have ever imagined. They are responsive, friendly, always smiling, and willing to let you customize your wedding that suits your needs (which was a huge plus to us!). Mountain House Estate was the perfect venue to make our dream wedding come true!” – Sarah and Darren


Why Mountain House Estate?

John and Lane have lived in California wine country for quite a few years, found the property, and fell in love.

Their primary purpose for purchasing the property was because there was a lovely house located on the property and it was the perfect space for a private event space, reception hall, and wedding venue.

However, the venue portion of the property was never appropriately completed by the builder.

Unlike many wineries that host rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions in a dark wine barrel room, there was lots of thought and hard work that went into making this the perfect Sonoma CA wedding venue.


Blood, sweat, love, and tears.

Lane says John is the mastermind behind the improvements made to Mountain House Estate.

From the Oak Tree Terrace to the reconfiguration of the front pond and lawn areas and the beautiful, unique lighting in various areas to bring the event space to life; all Johns’s hard work.

Everything has been elegantly repurposed.

John and Lane have done an incredible job of making their Sonoma CA wedding venue a comfortable creation that reflects their interests and offers a nod to years gone by.

The barn and garden at Oak Tree Terrace are great examples of this.

The barn makes the perfect location for cocktails after your wedding ceremony.
Some even choose the barn as their ceremony site or for their rehearsal dinner!

The wood from the barn was taken from an old barn down in Walnut Creek and recreated by John.


The hubcaps include brands that no longer exist, and there are several fairly rare hubcaps on the wall; Terraplane, Hudson, Lincoln Zephyr, Wippet, Nash, and Rambler.

We’re the top-rated rustic barn-style venue among Sonoma county wine country wedding venues.
