The venue is beautiful. The ceremony location is the perfect spot if you want some trees and mountains. You do not feel like you are in Atascadero. For us the weather was prefect in August and there was always a slight breeze.Sent on 08/27/2019

Portola Inn - A Perfect Place for our Daughter's Wedding!
Peggy and Tom O'Malley have an amazing venue at Portola Inn. Their goal was to make our daughter's wedding day as perfect as possible. We gave them only 8 weeks and the wedding day was perfect. We worked well together and they wanted to make sure our dreams for the wedding day happened. They were personally invested in making the day beautiful. Their amazing staff served with big smiles and were available for whatever was needed. The venue was absolutely amazing. Even our local friends were amazed at the beauty of the Portola Inn which included the beautiful old oak trees and gardens! Our guests left saying this was the best wedding they had been to! What a compliment to our family but more importantly to Peggy and Tom for having an amazing location and for their service. Portola Inn is a great choice for a wedding or other event. We are so happy that we were able to have our daughter and new son's wedding day at Portola Inn!Sent on 09/15/2019

I can't put into words how impressed I was with Tom and Peggy. They don't deserve a 5 rating, they deserve a 10 or 20 or whatever. The venue was beautiful. The only way to describe it, is "Tuscany meets Fairy Tale". My son's wedding was June 29, 2019 and it was the most beautiful wedding I've ever been too thanks to Tom and Peggy. We couldn't have pulled it off without them. I was trying to stay ahead of everything and every time I would make a suggestion, she was already on it. It was so nice not to have to worry about anything. She had many of the decorations that we used which saved us a lot of money. She suggested things that we never thought of. She was very patient and very understanding and solved a lot of our problems before we even saw them coming. We reserved the venue and then had to postpone it for a year. Tom and Peggy let us come up many times to view the venue and gave us ideas for decorating. Peggy was always very prompt returning our calls and we had many. We live 2 hours away so this was very helpful. Again, I can't express how wonderful these people are. If you decide this is the venue for you, you won't be disappointed. I know there's lots of things i'm forgetting, just be assured you will not be sorry you chose Portola INNSent on 07/07/2019
Portola Inn's reply:We are so happy you had such a positive experience all the way through. We loved being a part and love your description of "Tuscany meet Fairy Tale."

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!
