We are located just north of Chico on Nord Highway. We are just minutes from DeGarmo Park, restaurants, lodging, stores, Highway 99 and Highway 32. Our clients understand that because we are located in an agricultural community, that agricultural activities occur around us. We cannot ask for any modifications of any surrounding land use to accommodate a special event.
Yes! Whether or not you choose accommodations, we offer a suite and a den for getting throughout the day of your event. Both include mirrors and easy access to restrooms.
Yes! Irongate Garden Inn offers accommodations in modified B&B style. We have three rooms, each with an en suite restroom, providing beds for up to eight guests. Please inquire for pricing.
Definitely. Select our mid-level wedding collection and invite your closest friends and family to be with you while you’re getting ready! This package includes the great room, sun room and kitchenette.
Yes, we have on-site parking! We have a gravel driveway and gravel parking areas. We also have a designated parking for those who need additional space and who will benefit by parking closer to the gardens.
We love pets but they are not permitted on the property at Irongate. We made the very difficult decision to prohibit pets to protect the gardens. We also have barn cats and want to maintain their safe space as well. Of course a service dog is permitted, as per local, state or federal law.
So that your weekend executes exactly as you planned, we strongly encourage you to work with a professional Event Planner or Coordinator. At the very least, you need a designated person who facilitates your day. We suggest this person not be a guest or family member because they will be working instead of enjoying your special day. We can put you in touch with several excellent businesses in Chico that provide these services. Some are full-service and some offer basic single-day packages. Also, check with your caterer. Some offer a day-of point person as part of their service or for a small fee. If you have something else in mind, let’s chat and see what we can figure out.
Yep. Out of respect for our neighbors and the County ordinance, we require that a professional disk jockey be retained for your event. Of course we can put you in touch with licensed and professional entertainment services.
Yes! You can hire a professional bartender or beverage service to serve alcohol at your event. We also know of some really cool mobile bars! It’s also possible your catering professional will offer this as an additional service.
Our home has a kitchen but it’s not a commercial kitchen (which requires additional licensing) so your food needs to be prepared and served by a professional caterer. They cook your food in their commercial kitchen but they can use our kitchen to prepare for your service.
Amplified sound must be turned off no later than 10:00 PM. This is a County requirement.
As per the County ordinance, your event must end no later than 10:00 PM. Unless accommodations are selected, you and your guests must vacate the premises by 11:00 PM.
Irongate Garden Inn is designed to be a retreat and destination for your special event. We do not schedule more than one event in the gardens during a weekend and we want you to relax and enjoy this special time. As such, our pricing is based on a weekend, and includes access to the property Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday morning. If you want to plan a special event Monday through Thursday, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Yes, but you would want to purchase the insurance even if we didn’t. Anything is possible and the cost for event insurance is minimal compared to the coverage that it offers. To protect yourself financially from mishaps that may occur. Some policies offer additional coverage unique to your type of event. We can help you get started with this inexpensive peace of mind.
