We had our wedding on our 19th anniversary at inn marin in Novato and it was perfect. Out of town guests could arrive park for free all weekend and just hang out together. The inn is a great place to hang w good food inside and nearby ,and a great pool. Our wedding planner Tricia Harris helped make the day completely stress free by thinking of everything and taking care of it beforehand and during our day. It was the funnest wedding I have ever been to and it was mine. Talk about stress free!

The Inn Marin is a GEM! I wanted a laid back, intimate, rustic outdoor wedding with amazing food !
I got all of that @ Inn Marin .
My mother and I looked at a ton of wedding venues! I was feeling a little discouraged because I wasn’t finding anything .
After touring Inn Marin , I never looked back, truly. It was green, beautiful trees, luscious hydrangeas that surrounded the entire venue ! It was breathtaking!
Now, the wedding coordinator and staff ! No joke, I wish I could hang out with them on a weekly basics. They were that wonderful. Tricia , the wedding coordinator will become your best friend. She will almost feel like your maid of honor, because she is so on point with everything and leaves you with NOTHING to worry about! She was so accommodating and supportive during the whole planning phase.
I honestly can’t praise her enough, she was such a pleasure to work with .
I never got stressed out , never felt like something was missing or something was wrong, she was so organized and on point that it made everything perfect !
You always hear brides tell you , its such a stressful time .. planning a wedding. Honestly , I enjoyed every bit of it - I never felt overwhelmed with coordination .

I haven’t stopped getting texts, emails , and comments on my facebook about how amazing our wedding was ! So many people have told us that our wedding was the “ Best wedding ever ! “ The food was amazing” , “The scenery was stunning” The hotel was so nice...”
The list goes on!
I couldn’t be more pleased with how it all turned out. I’m so thankful that I went and took a peek in the back garden area, and decided to have our wedding at this venue.
I loved everything that the Inn Marin had to offer us, we were able to personalize the venue and make it ‘ours’ !

We loved working with the Inn Marin, especially their event coordinator, Tricia.
Our wedding was on a modest budget but they were willing to come up with creative ways to accommodate us.
And, because we were having our wedding with them, they also gave us a special discounted rate for having the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner there as well.
We had a lot of out of town guests who were able to book rooms there and then literally walk out their hotel room doors and be at the wedding site. They all reported that they had a lovely stay with great room service.
The Inn Marin set up and took down all of our wedding decor, I simply had to deliver the decorations a few days before the event (this was an amazing help!).
Any glitches or mishaps that happened (they were minor and not that many) the event coordinator, Tricia was on it and it was resolved with in minutes.
All of my guests on the day of the wedding said how fun it was and how they loved the venue and thought it was beautiful. One of our guests said, "I had no idea that place was there, what a hidden gem!'
Lastly, this review wouldn't be complete without giving a huge shout out and 'Thank you' to the chef and staff at Rickey's! Rickey's is the restaurant located on the site of the Inn and they provided the food for our reception. All my guests said the service was fantastic and the food was delicious! I had more than one guest comment, "I can't believe how wonderful the food tasted, especially given that they had to serve over 150 guests!"
I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a wonderful, beautiful, fun, and stress free wedding! This place is worth the time even for a tour, if nothing else, you'll be in for a treat getting to meet Tricia! (She's really the best!)

There is literally nothing I would change about our wedding event at Inn Marin. Lora (the event coordinator) is warm and fun and fantastic to work with. The setting is gorgeous, and the food provided by Rickey's was just the best. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff is gracious. We couldn't be happier with their services.

This is a beautiful location with a variety of set ups depending on where you want your ceremony and reception. Staff is extremely friendly, and it was a joy to work with the event coordinator, Lora Salfi. If there was ever a problem, I never knew of it and she kept me so organized I never had anything to worry about!

Thank you so much! It was so great to work with you and have a chance to meet your family and friends. I hope you come back to visit again, soon!

Finding the Inn Marin for our wedding ceremony and reception site was a dream come true. The site is beautiful and as others said, Lora, the director of catering is amazing. I give her all the credit for the wonderful wedding we had. She really loves her job and works hard to give you exactly what you want. Never once did I hear no. She worked with me on every request I had. She has so much knowledge on the whole wedding planning process. She is warm, sweet,and so easy to work with. It was so great having Lora there to help me. Most wedding coordinators at other venues are no where close as involved as Lora. She is the absolute best!

The Inn Marin was the perfect setting for our vision of an outdoor summer wedding. We were married outside under the Magnolia tree with the cocktail hour and dinner outside in the garden lawn. Dancing took place inside the ballroom. We chose the Fajita Buffet for dinner and everyone commented on it being the best wedding food they had ever had! Most of our guests rented rooms at the Inn Marin and were very impressed with their stay. Most importantly at the end of the day we came under budget! Wish I could get married again here at the Inn Marin. Thank you!

I am sooo happy you had the wedding of your dreams! It was a pleasure to work with you and an honor to be a part of your special day. I hope to see you both again, soon!

Being a bride on a budget in the lush Sonoma County, I was struggling to find a venue that was both beautiful and cost effective. My fiance and I were starting to feel helpless when we made our appointment with Lora at the Inn Marin.
First the venue is amazing! Their courtyard is lush and green with a magnificent magnolia tree taking center stage. There is a beautiful fountain and the grounds and exceptionally kept.
Second [and for me, the most important] Lora the catering director is just amazing. She is personable, flexible and willing [if not happy] to go the extra mile for her clients and you will be a guest at your wedding. You can leave everything in Lora's hands and know that it will get done just the way you imagined it.
And last, but certainly not least- the venue is so affordable. You can have your northern california wedding and have it be beautiful on a budget with the Inn Marin.

Definitely recommend them!!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I loved working with you and look forward to seeing you again soon!
PS. Don't forget to come for dinner!

There is not a single thing I could complain about. Lora is amazing. Just about anything you could want she can make happen. They are easy to get in contact with and alway accommodating. The food was fantastic. Set-up was flawless. I didn't have to worry about a single thing and many of my guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever attended.

What a wonderful day. I have a picture of your butterflies saved on my desktop, so beautiful I had so much fun working with you and I hope to see you both again, soon!

The Inn Marin provides catering through their restaurant, Rickey's, and their catering director worked wonders with our menu and decorations. We did not have to rent chairs, a dance floor, or a tent through an outside vendor, everything was handled through the Inn. We were able to set up a room block for our out-of-town guests at a reduced rate. The entire planning experience was vastly smoothed out for us when working with the Inn Marin.
Inn Marin responded with the following comments:
I so enjoyed working with you both. Your sense of humor made the planning process so much fun! Please come for a visit and dinner whenever you can!
