Truly amazing

I credit the Quail Lodge staff with how well my reception went. Everything flowed so seamlessly and all of my guests commented on how amazing my wedding was. The staff were so professional and kind.

The venue is also beautiful. The layout is perfect with outdoor patio and indoor seating for dinner. The fact that they have everything you need (lighting, flatware, linens, tables, chairs, etc.) just takes out all sorts of things you would have to think about if you decided to host elsewhere.

Lastly, working with Fallon was a dream. She knew exactly my vibe as a bride and was so easy to work with. Both her and the captain/main lead that night were amazing and fantastic. Anyone who asks me, I tell them I had the most amazing wedding.

Very professional and went above and beyond for making our wedding day special! It was a beautiful venue and the staff is always one step ahead. We have received many compliments from our family and friends on how amazing our wedding was and they were impressed by the staff of the Quail Lodge. I would definitely recommend The Quail Lodge if you are looking for great service, amazing food, and a beautiful venue.

We hosted our Day After Brunch at Quail Lodge, and they did an absolutely spectacular job, at an incredible price. We wanted to host a brunch for all our guests (since almost all were from out of town, and we wanted to spend more time with them before they left) but we were afraid we wouldn't be able to do so without breaking the bank. However, Quail Lodge was able to host a delicious hot brunch buffet (eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, tons of fresh fruit, fresh honey comb, etc) for 100 people at $35/head plus an insignificant venue fee.

We held it in the Covey, which is a lovely multi-level room and outdoor deck on their pond, near the lobby. The staff was very friendly and the service was great. It was a sunny, relaxed event, with really delicious food. We got to spend a lot of extra time with our guests, going table to table, and have people sign the guestbook if they forgot the night before. It was the perfect way to end our weekend.

as a wedding photographer I've always loved shooting weddings at Quail. Their staff is helpful and friendly. As well as having some of the loveliest backgrounds in the Carmel Valley area - the lake, the meadows...all lend themselves to a perfect wedding site!
