My husband and I were married at the historic Avery Hotel on 09.08.18 and it was absolutely perfect. From day one Fred, Terry, and the rest of the Avery staff were incredibly responsive, helpful, and kind. The Avery Hotel is set in the majestic Stanislaus National forest. They had everything we needed and we loved that we were able to spend the whole weekend there. And the price is incredibly affordable! The hotel was the perfect venue for our special day and I would recommend it to any couple looking for a Northern California wedding venue.
The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The interior of the hotel is spacious and decorated lavishly. There is a super cool saloon style bar for enjoying beverages with friends and a commercial kitchen for preparing meals. There are bathrooms both downstairs and upstairs and the water pressure in the showers was great. All the rooms are unique and the beds were very comfortable. Our guests all loved exploring the space!
The kitchen appliances, door locks, baths and showers were all in great shape and fully functional.
We were married on the stage which was recently stained and looked great, and Terry provided a lovely white backdrop for us to decorate. She also laid out a long white runner for our aisle. Terry was incredibly accommodating, even collecting candlesticks and other decorative items for us to use. The pavilion outside is also beautiful and seated our 100 guests perfectly for dinner. The Avery hotel provided the tables & benches, as well as white linen tablecloths and napkins.
The property has tons of twinkle lights which are so pretty at night, and there are lots of tables and chairs around for relaxing. The hotel provided speakers both indoors and outdoors which made for some great dance parties. They also had 2 port-o-potty's available outside. We really didn't need to bring much as they had so many things covered!
Overall, our experience was wonderful. The staff, hotel, and amenities were amazing and made our wedding absolutely perfect. If you are looking for a unique weekend wedding venue, take a tour of the historic Avery Hotel - you'll fall in love.
