Mountain House Estate, with its picturesque vineyard event spaces, is amazing! It was the perfect venue for our springtime wedding. The property is beautiful and even the pictures don’t do it justice. It has just about everything you need right there. A Bar, plenty of bathrooms, two separate suites for couples and wedding parties to get ready in, multiple ceremony locations, a cute barn that can be used for just about anything, a patio, a big inside space, lots of beautiful photo spots, and perfect first look location. Lane and John at Mountain House put thought into every detail. They also have an amazing list of suggested vendors, which was very helpful. The day was beyond magical and everything went smoothly. They are professional and go above and beyond to make sure the couple and their guests have the best time.

Mountain House Estate is by far one of my favorite Wedding Venues to work at as a Wedding Photographer!! The property’s landscape offers so many beautiful photo opportunities; from rolling hills, gorgeous vistas, oak trees, to colorful gardens! And best of all – they allow creative freedom, so you can design your own wedding day vision! Total flexibility and they truly care for each of their clients! Love this place!

Our experience with Lane and John at Mountain House Estate was truly outstanding. Lane’s efficient and prompt communication greatly simplified the coordination of our special day. Her dedication shone through, especially on our wedding day, as she went above and beyond to ensure my family and I had everything we needed. The venue itself is not only beautifully maintained but also thoughtfully designed as a dedicated wedding space, catering to different venue types. Its layout supports a smooth flow for the ceremony and reception, with designated areas for all key activities. While Mountain House Estate requires most items to be brought in, they provide key essentials like tables, chairs, a stunning redwood bar, cocktail tables, fire pits, and patio furniture. This significantly reduces the rental burden for couples, something I did not fully understand until I got my final bill from the rental company after our wedding. The venue’s preferred vendor list was a very valuable resource for us, offering a selection of quality vendors familiar with the property. If you book at MHE, we’d highly recommend working from the preferred vendors list as much as possible as the familiarity with the property significantly reduces the likelihood of vendor-related issues on the day of your wedding. We highly recommend Mountain House Estate for its excellent service, beautiful setting, and thoughtful design, all of which contributed to a memorable and seamless wedding experience.
