2020 is a vanity year for weddings and booking interest is intensifying for our operating season, which spans mid-May to mid-October.
Weddings in Gold Country California offers two spectacular warm weather outdoor venues for your destination wedding as the foundation of where your planning begins.
We invest the time to work with you and create a truly unique and inimitable affair that you and your guests will remember, cherish, and talk about lovingly for generations.

The landmark Dunbar House Inn and Event Property is the most desirable and rarest of rare event properties in the Sierra Nevada foothills, as it is the only event property in the center of Murphys on Main Street, mere yards from boutique shopping, fine dining, additional luxury lodging for your guests, and, arguably, the greatest concentration of wine tasting rooms in America.
As traditional as it is non-traditional, the Dunbar House Inn and Event Property is capable of hosting intimate sit-down outdoor progressive weddings and parties for up to 150 people on the lush, sprawling and manicured grounds of this pristine 140-year old Italianate-style historic estate. The Dunbar House’s 6 stunning suites can be reserved when accommodations are required for weddings held on her stunning property.
Or choose from the Crestview Pond Estate, which is our private gated wedding property located 1.2 miles from central Murphys. Also capable of hosting weddings up to 150 guests, it sits on 20 acres of breathtaking and perfectly manicured landscaped grounds with a pond, amphitheater-like lawn for wedding ceremonies or receptions, and a wooden covered bridge, all at the intersection of two creeks. There is ample and discrete parking on the grounds for 80 cars and the estate can sleep 7 couples in luxurious accommodations.
For destination weddings, up to 50 couples in your immediate family or bridal party can be lodged in luxurious accommodations offered by our Victoria Inn, as well as condos on and overlooking Main Street to breathtaking homes 1 to 10 minutes walking distance to the center of town.
White glove service and the relentless pursuit of excellence is consistent throughout. From destination weddings to special events, such as vow renewals, anniversary and bridal parties, and baby showers, set your affair against the backdrop of the most historic, picturesque and desirable Gold Country towns in the Sierra Foothills Wine Country of Calaveras County, Murphys.

Lisa I’d Weddings in Gold Country is simply the best
We absolutely love Weddings in Gold Country. Lisa and her husband are such wonderful, fun people to work with. Lisa saw to all details, and it made everything so easy for us. We had about 65 people, and everyone commented how great our wedding was. We stayed ( along with our friends and family)at the Dunbar House. Jim prepared delicious breakfasts for us both mornings. We also had a pre wedding party on the patio the night before the wedding. We couldn’t be happier with how our weekend turned out. We love the town of Murphy’s, and our guests were able to explore and all stay within walking distance of the Dunbar House. The Dunbar House is an awesome venue, and compared to other venues we looked at in the area, we felt it was a tremendous value. We highly recommend using Weddings in Gold Country for your special event.Sent on 10/20/2019
