The story of the Monroe Ranch began in 1860, when James Monroe of Massachusetts settled in the Suisun Valley. Rich soil, dependable water supplies, and bright sunshine combined to create a superb location for farming. The great demand for labor resulted in up to 1,000 Chinese agricultural laborers living near the property towards the end of the 19th century. George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate was the inspiration for the construction of a eight-bedroom house in 2004. After Gary and Ying purchased the property, they repurposed the home as an intimate gathering place for guests.

Amazing beautiful wedding
My wife and I had our wedding here with tons of family and friends. Everything was perfect and beautiful. The house was huge to be able to fit all of our groomsmen and bridesmaids (16 of us). The grounds were well kept, and Gary couldn’t have been a better host.Sent on 05/18/2021

We had a great experience here in Suisun Valley Inn
We originally booked a different venue for our wedding and that was a nightmare, then we found Suisun Valley Inn and the rest is history ❤️❤️❤️We had our wedding here Sept 1st and that is in the middle of pandemic plus the wildfires here in California. We were very blessed that amidst of that we were able to pull off a very beautiful wedding here in Suisun Valley. Gary was awesome, allowing us to check in early the day before our wedding. We were able to set up all our DIY decorations. He was very good in exchanging emails and keeping us updated with the county’s current rules and even weeks before the wedding and days before with the wildfire updates.
The mansion is huge and able to accomodate our immediate family so they didn’t have to book a different hotel to stay. Very spacious and clean.
The backyard is gorgeous, way enough lighting with the market lights that looks great in pictures. They were able to set up chairs and tables with more than enough social distanncing for our guests. The vineyard is huge you can have awesome pictures for your big day, our guests also enjoyed taking pictures of this place. We were very happy with this venue that all of our guests could not believe that we can have this beautiful wedding in the middle of this pandemic. We made sure we have enough sanitizing stations, masks and social distancing for everyone. Would totally recommend this venue if you want a stress, hassle free and memorable wedding. 😁Sent on 09/29/2020

Everything from our first tour of the venue to checking out the day after the wedding was amazing! Gary was always quick to respond and very informative, especially with Covid-19 going on during our planning and wedding. He was extremely helpful in the setup and takedown of our event. The house itself was our favorite decision of our wedding; having some family and friends be able to stay there with us leading up to the wedding and the night of made it an experience to remember for a lifetime. Gary even helped us with personalized wine bottles with our names and wedding date printed on them! We might even book again for our 1 year anniversary!Sent on 10/09/2020
