The Murieta Inn and Spa, located in the rolling Gold Country foothills of Sacramento County, is just what this area needed. It’s a beautiful hotel with lots of rooms and over 2,700 square feet of event space.  It’s a perfect local or destination retreat for weddings or conferences. There is so much to do when visiting this nook of Northern California, an entire vacation can be planned around a wedding or event. Also, it’s very convenient being just 25 miles from downtown Sacramento so you can just make day of it.

The 4 story hotel is designed with California Missions at heart in a classic hacienda style. It offers 83 luxurious sleeping rooms. Amenities include a pool & fitness center and a great restaurant. It’s truly a farm to fork experience as they have their own organic farm (Angel Wing Farm) where many menu items are grown! Additionally, a state-of-the art salon & spa (The Cupola) has services available for bridal parties.

The Inn has an upscale equestrian vibe due to its connection and close proximity to the Murieta Equestrian Center. It displays a combination of one of a kind artwork with eclectic furniture, including a wonderful collection of doors and gates. These are used in creating different spaces and as decor.  The rotunda ceiling is an art piece in itself – a local craftsman created the metal floral-like sculpture with the addition of a large (9′!) root brought over from Indonesia placed in the center. The sculpture feels both classic and contemporary, mixing wood and metal to create the focal point to this central space.

For private events, the combination of the function areas is what is most exciting about this property. This venue is exciting for couples and planners who love a natural outdoor setting with the indoor options’.

The Murieta Inn is a great place for your nuptial celebration. First, The Park is a vast lawn and garden area. Next is The Fireside Terrace, a poolside patio with a grand fireplace. For smaller events The Bourbon Room boasts a collector’s selections of fine Bourbon. And The Oak Hall makes for excellent option for a wedding ceremony or cocktail reception. The Inn is a blank canvas and they are open to moving furniture and some artwork which opens up the possibilities. It’s wonderful to have a location where guests can move around the property for the different events of the celebration, without having to drive.

There are also multiple places for a dinner and dancing reception as well. The Legacy Ballroom is high-tech with the latest a/v options, yet warm with natural-colored chairs and metal chandeliers. It can be used in its entirety or sectioned off with airwalls to make a more intimate space or multiple spaces. Included in the rental are tables in multiple shapes and sizes and also a wood-grain dance floor. The Park can also be the spot for dinner al fresco on the lawn or even an outdoor concert. You have the option to rent a tent or plan dinner at the Fireside Terrace with a few umbrellas.
