We had our wedding here in April and it was a perfect weekend! We've had multiple people tell us that it was the best wedding they went to this year which says a lot for the location!

We had many people coming in from out of town and liked that everyone could stay at Costanoa and that they they had a variety of accommodations to choose from. It's a beautiful location and everyone had a wonderful time exploring Pescadero and relaxing on the property. The fireplace and restaurant are great areas for people to meet up.

Some of the comments about brevity of emails is correct, but what I found was that if you called or made an appointment to meet with the team and ask questions, everything was fine. You also really do need a day-of coordinator to organize everything outside of ceremony setup and food.

The team at Costanoa really does want to make your day amazing and is very helpful and accommodating. A couple examples:
1) On the way for our food tasting our car broke down about 10 miles away. Lyft, Uber, and cabs are not readily available in the area so Teri came and picked me up while my then-fiancé went with the tow truck and arrived much later with friends who had driven to give him a ride.

2) They had some of the cocktail hour appetizers in our room after the wedding so that after the ceremony we could have a few minutes by ourselves and have a snack before coming back out to the party. This was a nice touch which is now one of our favorite memories from the day.

The one thing that I found annoying, and one for which I almost removed a star, is the way that the rooms are blocked out. One the lodge is booked, it is booked under the couple's names (since you are responsible for the cost of any empty rooms). Guests then need to call one person to book their room from the block who was not always available to receive calls. I'm not sure why the main reservations like can't take these calls and know that they are part of the block. I did not like that many of my guests had to call back multiple times to make a reservation - it was critical to me that my guests has an easy, comfortable time and this was an early frustration.

In the end, everything was perfect and everyone had a fun, amazing time!
