The Allison Inn & Spa

Party spaces: Couples who wake to a sunny day can exchange vows in the Estate and Meadow Gardens; also on property are a vineyard, overlook, and pool terrace, any of which would make a fine ceremony or cocktail spot. If you’re expecting a crowd, there’s a massive indoor space that can hold 150, and an even more massive ballroom that can seat 200; both have heady hillside views and skylights, so the feeling is open and airy. A small private dining room off the inn’s celebrated JORY restaurant is ideal for rehearsal dinners; the Chef’s Table would be fun for a small bunch of food-centric friends. 

For guests on a budget: Fancy they’re not, but there’s a Best Western and a Travelodge within easy driving distance.

One more thing: The food! The food! Even people who could care less about locavore menus will be blown away by chef Sunny Jin’s creativity (he’s done time at The French Laundry and El Bulli). Chef will create a custom menu based on the season, your tastes, and the budget. Oregon rockfish caponata, local suckling pig, and espresso turtle torte on a wedding menu? You’d better believe it.
