This was one of the best wedding venues I've been to! It's charming without feeling small. Each area of the venue offers something unique. There's a tasteful fire pit, a beautiful indoor bar/dining room with a patterned glass ceiling AND a house with large front porch. The photos don't do justice to this gem, The views are incredible. The service... More

This was a wonderful place for a wedding reception. It was rainy but they had tents up and it never caused an issue. The food was so good. The service was also very good. We had a wonderful time.

Erin was the person our son, daughter in law and her mother worked with to create a special wedding and reception. Erin is the best! Very helpful throughout the... More

The House is quaint and has a variety of levels/rooms. It was very difficult for me to be mobile due to the many stairs and steps as I am handicapped. For a smaller wedding (no more than 70),this house was perfect. The outdoor grass area was decorated in a lovely manner and heaters were provided for the cooler evening. The... More

This is a beautiful place to have a small wedding, the view upstairs is amazing!!!! The staff are friendly and the wedding planner (Patty Speirs) did an excellent job with everything!!!!! Start to End since my brother and sister-in-law lived in New Orleans. If you can, this is the place to get Married!

Just recently attended an open house there & the put on a great party. The setting is perfect for a business or family event. A wedding there would be amazing, the bridal suite is perfect as such.

Attended a Business Luncheon last week, sun was out a beautiful day! Perry House has great views of the ocean from the terrace and is good for small weddings, showers and business luncheons. Staff is friendly and professional. Food was just OK

Just returned from my BFF"s wedding here. It was AMAZING!!! The best part honestly was the staff. Hannah (I think is how its spelled) was so sweet, so attentive to all our needs (the Bride and Bridal party) and the grounds were just impeccable. Walking distance to several hotels, downtown Monterey, etc. Loved it. The wedding got rained out, but... More
