About The North Star House

The North Star House is a magnificent 1905 mansion located in the Heart of the Gold Country. The House was built for a mining engineer and was designed by Julia Morgan, California's first female architect and designer of the famous Hearst Castle. The North Star House is now owned and operated by a non-profit organization dedicated to its restoration and establishment as a cultural event center.

The property offers a stunning yet affordable setting with lighted courtyard, vast lawns, romantic gardens, and sunset views from the veranda. You will have complete use of the House and grounds for 10 hours, plus tables and chairs for up to 200 people. With flexibility for how you envision you Big Day, you can dine in the courtyard or on the lawn, say "I Do" under the pergola or between the trees.

    We have officially booked The North Star House for our wedding next year and am so in love with this venue, it has everything we were looking for especially the ability to be so flexible and bring our own perferred vendors. Such a great value for what you get! Deborah was great, and were excited for the big day!

    Beautiful venue and your money goes to a good cause

    The North Star House was such a wonderful venue for our wedding. When picking a location we were faced with the fact that regardless of where we had it we were going to pay a healthy amount of money and we realized what not only was the NSH a beautiful venue that gave us everything we wanted it also meant that that our money was going go back into the building preserving a part of our community. This aligns with our values and so the choice was simple for us.

    The staff was friendly, easy to work with and eager to help. Scheduling was a breeze and Allyssa was quick to respond to questions and concerns. I have a feeling this venue is going to start getting booked out so if you're considering it don't wait too long.
