A few kind words from those who know best…

Just a few testimonials from past brides & grooms... <3


"We just want to say thanks again for everything you did to make the wedding one of our finest memories. You did a fantastic job coordinating all of the details. You were on top of everything and I felt complete confidence in you which helped me to actually enjoy the day instead of worrying. (Even Erik's squirt gun and bubbles gauntlet was a success.) Everyone loved staying at MacHouse and commented often on how outstanding the food was. The staff was also wonderful—very accommodating and gracious throughout the entire weekend. Thanks to them for taking care of our group. I hope we weren't too unruly. Thanks for being the best wedding coordinator in the world. (That should be your new title.)

I kind of miss being involved in the planning stages and making my many phone calls and emails to you. So this one is my last just to express my gratitude. The weekend met and even exceeded our expectations. Thinking about it will make us smile for a long time to come. How fortunate for you that you have a job that can make people so happy.

We love MacCallum House!"

“Josh and I, along with all of our family and friends, had the most amazing experience at our wedding.

The entire planning process was easy, the weekend of our wedding was so comfortable, and I cannot express how ideal the big day was. Looking back, I have many, many wonderful memories and I thank you for that.”

"Nate and I are extremely happy that we chose the MacCallum House as part of our wedding weekend extravaganza in Mendocino. Many of our guests were from the East Coast and had never been to Mendocino, so it was very important to us that the accommodations were perfect for them. Everyone raved about how much they loved their rooms, the view, the proximity to town, and of course the delicious gourmet breakfast!!! Our cocktail hour and rehearsal dinner were just lovely. 

The Mac House staff went out of their way to ensure that all of the dietary concerns of our guests were taken care of with a vegan, vegetarian, and seafood choice at dinner. Alan outdid himself on those meals, and the service was excellent. No detail was overlooked. We received compliments from every single one of our guests on their meals and their overall experience at the Mac House. The Mac House staff even arranged for  transportation throughout the wedding day in their limousine complete with champagne! From start to finish, the Mac House experience was amazing.

Nate & I truly were made to feel that we were important, and much of our pre-wedding stress was alleviated by the careful advance planning and preparation of the Mac House staff. The staff worked around us, and what we wanted. They really made sure that our experience was unique, and our own. We have such wonderful memories and photos, and the MacCallum House will always be a part of these happy memories."

"Dear Mac House staff,

Many thanks for helping to make our wedding a unique and unforgettable affair. Over a long Labor Day weekend, you made us feel welcome at every opportunity, responded to every request, and created a wedding reception more perfect than we could have ever imagined.

From the very beginning, over a year before the wedding, we felt very comfortable and well taken care of. You worked with us on the details, such as the dinner menu and decorations, and you followed up diligently on all of our questions and requests for change. Except for our initial meeting, you accomplished all of this by constantly staying in touch via phone and e-mail, showing a never-diminishing desire to please and help us create the wedding of our dreams.

On the wedding weekend, Jed was there for us despite the birth of your son, Adam – congratulations again to you and Megan! Matt and his crew worked until late in the night to get the tent ready, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful, with our wedding colors all around. Alan and his staff created an exquisite menu despite having a full restaurant as well, and the timing of each course was just perfect. The many local wines were delicious…

Of course, staying at the Mac House was a treat for all of us. A number of guests remarked that the beds were so comfortable that they would love to have them at home.  From the housekeeping staff to the innkeepers, from the wait staff to the baby sitters we hired to look after the numerous small children during our reception, everyone did an excellent job of being warm, welcoming, and helpful. We felt very much at ease during what could have been a stressful time, and all of our guests traveled home with a profound appreciation of your hospitality, Mendocino’s beauty, and the sense of friendship and love inspired by this weekend. Thank you!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed having our wedding at the MacCallum House. Everything went smooth as silk.  I can honestly say it was only more than I ever imagined.  And the live butterflies filling the air just added to the magic of our special night.  Please extend our thanks to your entire MacCallum House team for their wonderful hospitality and professionalism.  We could not have picked a more romantic and intimate setting to host our wedding. All the guests are still buzzing about it.  I think many plan to come stay with you in the future…including us for our future anniversaries!"

"Thanks very much to each of you for all the effort that went into Elliot's rehearsal dinner on September 24. It was a huge success and everyone had fun. The setting was beautiful and every detail was taken care of. The staff were friendly and professional. Ginger, I appreciate your being there to take care of the last minute things. The printed menus were a nice touch. And the food was absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS. I still wish I had been able to take home what I couldn't finish. Everything was so good, but I especially loved the potato gratin. What kind of cheese was in it?...I am going to try to replicate it. Alan, thanks for coming up with such a great menu.

On behalf of Roy and Elliot and myself, thanks again very much to you three and all the staff. I know there were lots of people behind the scenes who helped to make our party successful; perhaps you can convey to them that they were appreciated."

"Where to begin? Thank you all so much for helping make our wedding weekend so memorable. Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they'd ever attended. Your attention to detail, professionalism, and good-natured understanding, far surpassed our expectations. We have nothing but good memories of our wedding and the Mac House team was a big part of that.

Thank you for your patience, for answering countless e-mails, and for providing all the last-minute support and assistance on the day. It was really great to have someone so calm and composed working on our behalf.

Thank you for making the gardens and grounds look so stunning. Our guests were delighted! Thank you also for being on-hand during the reception and allowing us to use the Grey Whale bar for our after party. It was the perfect end to the perfect day!

Every one of our hotel guests loved their rooms, the amenities, and especially the Mac House breakfasts. Thank you for being flexible and attentive to our (and our guests) many needs."

Thanks again for everything,
Daniel & Sierra (bride & groom)
