This was the most amazing experience of my life! We actually won our wedding! And it was truly amazing! Julie Wood is a wonderful Wedding Coordinator. She responded to me quickly and gave me exactly what I wanted. The wedding was planned to be outside. It rained the day before and it was planned to be moved inside. The weather cleared by late morning/early afternoon and the staff quickly made the changes to get set up outside and get all of our guests to the wedding location. The food at the reception was simply wonderful. It all sounded awesome on paper, but I think it tasted even better. Everything is fresh and the produce is local and the wine selection made it very hard to choose from. We stayed two nights at the MacCallum House and are looking forward to going back! All of our guests felt the same way. We also rented one of their rental homes for our rehearsal dinner and the house was beautiful and the perfect size for our 50 guests! I could not have imagined a more perfect weekend!!!Sent on 11/29/2010

My husband and I got married here this past April and it was just amazing. From the first day we met Julie, the wedding coordinator, she made us feel at ease and totally taken care of. Not only is the food mouth wateringly good, the chef is such a great guy to put your menu together with and they put so much attention to local ingredients. The service and quality of the staff is outstanding and continued throughout the whole weekend. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and romantic, there is just so much charm at The Mac House. We had our ceremony at The Cypress Grove which was truly incredible, all the transportation was flawless and our guests were able to relax and enjoy the weekend. If you are thinking of getting married in Mendocino, The Mac House is the place to do it. 5 stars across the board!Sent on 11/11/2010

Beautiful venue, great food!
I have worked with the MacCallum House for years as a wedding minister. They serve couples from elopements to large tented gatherings. Always a pleasant experience.
