Thank you for your kind warm welcoming ways. You have a beautiful property. We so appreciate you sharing it with us. We’d love to come back someday and bring our family. We left a thank you.

I know I thanked you yesterday, but I wanted to thank you again for a great time yesterday. I had so much fun that I really needed. What a great bunch of people you put together.


I want to let you know how much I enjoyed the Hiatt Family discussion yesterday and also to thank you for putting together the extensive handout; my husband, who was unable to attend yesterday, has been reading and then re-reading the handout; probably he has it memorized by now…many thanks!

Mountain House Estate served as the perfect location for our wedding. We wanted something charming, well-maintained and near a body of water and the site itself had everything we were looking for. We really loved the various wedding sites it had to offer and the fact that you could choose to have the reception both indoors or outdoors. The pond was a gorgeous backdrop for photos, and it has the backyard garden feel as well as some of the rustic- barn look that has become really popular. The bridal suite was also the perfect place to get ready with the girls. You don’t need much in terms of outdoor decor, lighting is already taken care of and tables/chairs are included as well which can offset some of the cost. Overall we were very happy with the site!

We attended a large dinner event at this lovely estate last month, and were very pleasantly surprised by the casual elegance and well appointed rooms and spaces now available. A perfect place for not just a wedding, but a corporate event, a retreat, or a multi-day conference. Location is convenient on beautiful highway, just a few miles off 101, yet feels remote and relaxing.

If you want a beautiful venue, including exquisite suites, for a wedding, anniversary or other important celebration,this is an excellent choice. We had a warm, elegant party for 60 of our tight-knit community members last night that was absolutely perfect. From the frogs serenading us from the pond in front, to the bright moon lighting up the dark, secluded skies, to the generous hospitality of our hosts, it was an evening to remember.

On 3/19/16 We held our membership meeting for YHGVA at Mountain House Estate. About 80 members and guests attended. The setting was perfect and the preparations outstanding. The owners John and Lane Alden were very attentive and ensured that the evening was totally pleasurable. It is clearly an ideal setting, with all the supporting amenities, to provide a perfect venue for business or social events.

My husband and I recently attended an event here. We were impressed by the Estate’s ability to accommodate a large group but still retain the warm and intimate feeling of a gracious home. All, including the exquisite gardens, are well maintained and immaculate. The owners have created a truly unique and beautiful venue for social or business gatherings and make every effort to assure that their guests enjoy their visit.

My wife is an event coordinator. She recently coordinated an event here. She was pleased with the space she had to work with and the staff was outstanding. She said, she work with them again in a heartbeat. This venue is perfect for all types of events. The space is clean and well thought out, indoor bathrooms, beautiful bar area, b&b rooms, lovely outdoor settings…
