All-Purpose Venues

A Wine Country setting for elegant or easy-going events

Petaluma is a not-so-hidden gem for retreats, reunions, conferences and weddings. Close enough to be easy to get to from San Francisco or Oakland yet our rolling hills and small town charm make it feel like you’re a million miles away from the frenetic pace of the city. Our meeting and event facilities run the gamut from family-friendly, to horse-friendly to business-friendly.

Picturesque Petaluma provides a stunning backdrop for a picture perfect wedding. Exchange vows surrounded by thousands of fragrant rose bushes or overlooking a vineyard with a Sonoma County sunset silhouetting the bridal couple. What could be more romantic? Or choose one of our historic and intimate venues. After the last toast is raised to the happy wedding couple, the good times don't have to end. Your guests can stay for the weekend and explore nearby wineries, the redwoods and the beautiful Sonoma coast.
