Best Venue EVER!
Absolutely beautiful venue. Each "room" feels like your own little world. My wife and I decided to have our wedding here in the Redwood Room and we couldn't have chosen a more stunning place. Cate helped us out along the way and with the final details. Highly recommend booking here if you're looking to have a beautiful event.Sent on 03/17/2021

Best Wedding Experience Ever!
We had the most unbelievably perfect wedding at Calamigos (Birchwood Room) in March 2021 thanks to their amazing Weddings/Events Team. The Team repeatedly went above & beyond for us - from generously letting us reschedule our wedding (twice!) due to the pandemic, to quickly answering our questions during the planning process, to providing such outstanding service during our wedding weekend, the Calamigos Wedding/Events Team stopped at nothing to make sure we had the best experience possible. We were treated so well throughout the entire process, and the Team really made it feel so personal and special. Everything during our ceremony and reception went perfectly, the food was amazing, the service was incredible - it was all so wonderful. On top of all that, Calamigos has many excellent Covid safety protocols in place - we all felt very safe the entire time. We are so appreciative of everything Cate, Helen and the rest of the Weddings/Events Team for us - it was truly the wedding of our dreams thanks to them!Sent on 03/26/2021

A dream within a dream! Pure magic.
Stunning, breathtaking, pure beauty - the wedding office team at Calamigos in addition to their Guest Ranch hospitality service is simply off the charts. These people are veterans who will take care of you every step of the way - they're collaborative, responsive, family friendly, and willing to do whatever it takes to ensure your special day at their venue is as beautiful as can be. We hosted 30 guests at the Birchwood Room during a pandemic (outdoors, masks on, negative tests, etc) and it was simply stunning! If you're looking for a one of a kind venue with a one of a kind staff, take a trip up the PCH and bask in the beauty of this place. We are overjoyed that they stuck with us to pull off our event safely and responsibly for all of our guests. Thank you for taking such good care of us. With love, the Clunes.Sent on 01/04/2021
