    Dream Wedding -

    The Estancia grounds are completely lush, green and beautiful. If you are looking for a mix of "old meets new" California vibes, this is the place for you.
    Every detail about the grounds/hotel/spa is thought out, and designed with care - even down the the paintings, lettering and murals sprinkled throughout the hotel by local artists.

    We were very happy with their food, (we had Sea Bass & Filet Mignon) and how quickly the plated dinner was served to our guests. We had ZERO problems with setting up, and even if we did I am confident that Estancia could have handled it with ease.

    The hotel staff was extremely professional, friendly, and very happy to help with all of our concerns. We were lucky enough to have Megan as our coordinator, and she was a dream. She helped us navigate all the grimy details of planning a wedding and ,made sure that everything was in order to have our dream wedding. She was on it with everything we may need and anticipated our needs before we even asked.

    One of the great things about booking here is that both we, and all of our family and friends were able to more of each other than a typical wedding because we all stayed at the hotel. They made booking for the wedding really easy, and everyone was able to book with the wedding rate.

    If you are thinking about using Estancia as your wedding venue I will warn you that yes it is expensive, but if you can swing it - it's worth it. If you are on the fence, go visit and I promise you'll quickly fall in love!

    I cannot recommend this place enough, we truly had a dream come true kind of wedding at Estancia and we will definitely be coming back for visits for years to come.

    Just Perfect

    We had an incredible wedding weekend at Estancia. The grounds are stunning, the staff is so helpful, and the actual wedding was a gorgeous, perfect, rowdy party. They anticipated our needs and went above & beyond for our stay. Riley was so incredibly helpful during the entire planning process; she was so kind to make some exceptions and throw in some extras for us. Thank you Estancia for an unforgettable weekend!
