Absolutely extraordinary! If you’re looking for a beautiful wedding venue, a professional staff, amazing food, outstanding customer service, and a stress free experience, then the Twenty Mile House is for you. Rachel was a first class wedding coordinator. Her professionalism and courtesy was impressive. Southern Accent provided the perfect home made food. Sonia the florist put together beautiful arrangements while Grandma Jans baked delicious desserts. Composing Reality captured our special day and provided us with beautiful photography. The DJ kept guests dancing all night. This all inclusive wedding venue is top notch! Rachel and all the Twenty Mile House staff helped make our dream wedding come to life!!!! Top wedding venue by far!Sent on 10/23/2019

could not have dreamed of anything better
Twenty Mile House deserves a five star rating because they are truly THE BEST EVER. Planning our wedding was so easy breezy that I sometimes thought to myself... "Am I forgetting something?" But nothing was forgotten, they just truly make it that simple. We live in San Diego, but made a weekend trip the year prior to meet their preferred vendors, taste food, and talk details at their wedding fair. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and dessert, and could tell we would be in good hands no matter which vendors we chose. Throughout the planning year, the wedding coordinator Rachel was always available and easy to communicate with via email. She kept us on track with ample checklists and timelines in our shared Dropbox. We had planning meetings via phone. These were very helpful and every detail was discussed. The whole weekend, from check in to check out, was truly seamless! The beauty of the property and surrounding Plumas County Forest area is truly unmatched! I can't say enough amazing things about this venue. Our wedding was truly the most beautiful, perfect day we could ever imagine. We are beyond pleased by our experience at Twenty Mile House!Sent on 09/19/2019

A Magical Forest Wedding
We knew Twenty Mile House was special the minute we set foot on site, but we never could have imagined what a magical experience our wedding would be. Pictures and videos can’t even begin to capture the incredible feeling of dropping out of time while being immersed in stunning natural surroundings and surrounded by the people you love most. From exchanging vows in the enchanted forest to dancing outdoors under the lights, we could not be happier with our decision to have our wedding at TMH.
We originally picked Twenty Mile House because it met all our major criteria: 1) In the woods. 2) No alcohol restrictions. 3) No time restrictions. 4) Housing on site. 5) Site control for the entire weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun). As we quickly found out, those just scrape the surface of what makes TMH so special.
It starts with Rachel, the wedding coordinator. Her title should be wedding magician. We live in NYC and were worried that the distance would be an issue. Not at all. She provided us with worksheets, timelines, contacts, suggestions, and support. Through it all, her infectious positive spirit and calm demeanor made us feel confident (even when we put off a lot of the planning till a month out!). We have no idea how she keeps everything so organized. Throughout our entire 1.5 year engagement, she responded to every question and request promptly and with such thoughtfulness. It felt as if we were her only client. This thoughtfulness continued on the wedding day, as she made sure everything went smoothly. She even personally delivered us drinks and appetizers after the ceremony while we were taking our photos.
The rest of the staff were equally impressive. From the moment we arrived, we felt taken care of. Penny and her team handled everything from managing the alcohol delivery to helping us blow up floats for our rafting trip. The staff is the secret sauce to TMH, making sure that you and your guests are able to focus on all good stuff of the wedding and don’t have to worry about any of the logistics.
Holly at Pangaea went above and beyond and made us a custom Indonesian menu for the rehearsal dinner. Though she had never made any of the dishes, she did an absolutely amazing job. Even our Indonesian guests were blown away. That meal was definitely one of the highlights of the whole weekend. And the mini naan pizzas she made as a late night snack for our reception were delicious as well, giving our guests a boost of energy to keep the party going. The farewell breakfast was fabulous too!
The party was MC’d by DJ Todd, who kept people dancing all night long. We provided him with a playlist, which he perfectly molded to keep the energy high and people of all ages engaged on the dance floor.
There were roughly 140 people at our wedding so most people stayed off-site. Brad at Sierra Charters helped us set up shuttle service to take people to and from TMH. Most people rented houses nearby, so we set up shuttle stops close to where our guests were staying. Everything ran on time and allowed everyone to celebrate freely.
By the end of the weekend, we lost track of how many guests complemented the venue. This has continued weeks and weeks after our wedding! We only wish we could have stayed longer.
While there are so many decisions to make when planning a wedding, picking Twenty Mile House as your venue should be the easiest one of all.Sent on 10/26/2019
