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.

Definitely. Our base pricing includes our gardens for your special event and the two rooms for getting ready. If you have family and friends who would like to join you while you prepare, you can lease our home, which includes a great room, sun room and kitchenette. Your friends and family can relax in these spaces throughout the day.
We have on-site parking! We have a gravel driveway and gravel parking areas so while it’s still in ag country, it’s not very dusty. We also 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 kitties 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, a professional Event Planner or Coordinator must be contracted for your event. We can put you in touch with several excellent businesses in Chico that provide these services.

Our home does not have a commercial kitchen, but we did arrange it to be used as an excellent space to plate down the meals you’ll be serving your guests during your special day. A professional, licensed and insured catering company must be contracted for food preparation and service. They will prepare your food at their commercial kitchen and will be able to utilize our space to prepare your meal and deliver table-side or to your buffet.
Amplified sound must be turned off no later than 10:00 PM. This is a County requirement. This means last call is at 9:30 PM.
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.
Absolutely, and that you’re thinking about this means you’re intelligently considering that anything is possible. To protect yourself financially from mishaps that may occur, we actually require you to obtain a special event policy of insurance. Additionally, some policies offer additional coverage unique to your type of event. We can help you get started with this inexpensive peace of mind.
