The integrity of this extraordinary home has been lovingly preserved through the years and is currently maintained and operated by the Carquinez Women’s Club.

    Awesome Experience!

    Beautiful venue for a wedding and reception! Gorgeous gardens, large deck area, access to indoor areas of a lovely historic home. At night, the outdoor cafe string lights make for a beautiful ambience. I acted as wedding coordinator for a family member's recent wedding, and Tracy, the venue coordinator for The Old Homestead, was a dream to work with! Super friendly and helpful...having her there during the event was like having a friend there to make sure everything went well. This place is a hidden gem...highly recommend!

    Hidden Gem!

    The old homestead is truly a hidden gem. It is absolutely perfect for an intimate wedding (we had around 40 people) but it can certainly fit a bigger group. This was by far the best value I found when looking for venues and I received endless compliments from guests. If you are even considering this venue just make the jump and book, you wont regret it!

    The Old Homestead's reply:

    Angelyne, thank you for your review. We are so glad that The Old Homestead was the perfect place for your special day.
