We absolutely loved Portola Inn for our venue! It was beautiful and the perfect setting for our big day. We had approximately 115 people and the venue fit everyone easily. The carriage house is great for dancing and everyone loved the decor and ceremony location. Peggy and Tom were extremely helpful the day of and had everything under control, even with our crazy group. Our pictures turned out great and most of it is because of the venue was so easy to capture.

Professional Network & Endorsements

Portola Inn is always a pleasure to visit. Tom & Peggy and their entire family of staff are welcoming to all guests. We have had several opportunities to visit this venue on small and large occasions and every time we smile and walk away remembering a great experience. We love how they recognize the vendors onsite with their own plaques and take huge pride in working with every one of them. Even more fun is how we at The Groves on 41 are often inspired by something the O'Malley's have done and fun to see we can sometimes even inspire them. Thank you for your community outreach and involvement, we love being companions in this wonderful industry and environment.

Portola Inn is a lovely venue with so many location options - the oak tree ceremony location is stunning! The owners are a pleasure to work with and take pride in creating a stress-free day for their couples. Plus it's close to town so you don't have to worry about guests navigating the narrow winery roads late at night.

Thank you, Portola Inn! We enjoying being apart of your couple's special day and thank you for referring us! Us at Kramer Events feel that Portola Inn is an excellent choice for venue if you're looking for a beautiful option that offers both indoor and outdoor event space in a gorgeous wooded setting! It's also easy to get to!

I have known and worked with Tom and Peggy O'Malley for the last 9 years on functions from weddings to fundraisers and other various event types. Their organization attention to detail and knowledge of good hospitality are excellent. The Venue itself is well maintained and clean at all times. What they bring to the table as far as services and amenities is huge in comparison with many of the venues I do work with. Fun Friendly and down to earth they have both been a pleasure to work with.
