  • The old homestead is truly a hidden gem. It is absolutely perfect for an intimate wedding (we had around 40 people) but it can certainly fit a bigger group. This was by far the best value I found when looking for venues and I received endless compliments from guests. If you are even considering this venue just make the jump and book, you wont regret it!

  • The Old Homestead is a wonderful, wonderful venue. The house is classic and beautiful but feels totally updated and comfortable (none of the electrical/plumbing/ air conditioning issues I often see working in charming old spaces). The garden is lovely, the space is intimate, but most importantly, the team at the Old Homestead is phenomenal. Keri, Micheal, and Maureen were fantastic to work with, really going above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. I can't recommend The Old Homestead Highly Enough!

  • Great Hidden Gem! I booked the Old Homestead strictly for the garden! it's beautiful! I also am in the events industry and have a lot of good relationships with vendors.. Being you have to book/design your entire wedding I recommend a wedding planner / team. The venue its self is super flexible and that is another main reason we decided to book... as if a blank slate you can do with what you like! Planning team was alright.. Maureen was great! she knew her stuff.. but the accounting / contracting team were hard to get a hold of/ only were available at certain times but when it came to payment.. they would email 5-6 times to all my contacts.. I opted to pay additional for the Bar and Arch Arbor.. Totally worth it! Also.. you must pay additional to reset the space from ceremony to reception.. they got it done in 30 mins.. WOW. I was impressed! They turned 200 seats into rounds like PRO's.. that was really my only concern and they did it without a hitch. I am impressed with their... Read more

  • My husband and I had our milestone birthdays last weekend at The Old Homestead. We love that the place is part of local history and that it is run by a local club (Carquinez Women's Club). Keri is the Party Coordinator and she is very responsive and flexible. Since this is run by a small group and is a fairly new party venue, keep in mind that they are working their way through their processes (i.e. payment options, etc.). This can be good (they don't have all the extra fees as an established venue) or bad (previously they did not take electronic payments but now they are working with Venmo and others). Maureen manages the set up; she's a hoot and totally cares about you having the best party! Overall, excellent and beautiful outdoor/indoor venue well worth the price!!! EVERY guest of mine commented on the venue and hinted to also using it for upcoming parties!

  • I love the venue, my husband and I used it because one of close friends also got married there and I fell in love with it. As far as the staff! They’re horrible. They don’t communicate, they don’t respond to emails, they don’t answer phone calls or texts. The 3 people I dealt with were Michael, Keri & Maureen. Keri was not bad, she had some issues answering emails and phones and couldn’t find our deposit for a while and called us telling us we needed to pay when we already did. Honestly the only time Keri responds to your emails is when she wants you to pay her for something. We spent 3 months trying to find out about our deposit check and never got an answer. Michael was supposed to be our help the whole wedding and half the time we could not find him! He does not respond to emails or texts at all either. We’ve been waiting for a tax form since it is a historical site and we have received no response at all. And then there’s maureen! Maureen was the worst! ... Read more

  • The venue itself is perfect if you are on a budget. Don't like the flagstone path they recently installed, it interferes with some table set up as it is right in the middle of a large grassy area and I had several guests trip in the darkness one twisted her ankle and was out the rest of the evening....they do not allow you to use the sink to rinse any rental dishes, you can only use the oven to reheat, cannot use the stove period...this also applies to any caterer as well... so beware. This is a historical landmark and the Women's Club is non profit so the rental of this venue is a tax write off but getting any paperwork for it is next to impossible. We have been trying since November it is now almost February and still nothing... we have left several emails and voice mails for Keri (who is the worst at responding except when she wants something from you...like the money), have texted Michael who had responded earlier when we were trying to track down our deposit...but not lately.

  • I waited to review this venue for three months because of how beautiful the venue is but the staff made our wedding memory absolutely atrocious. FIRST we where promised the date of July 4th before the calendar of 2018 opened up since my husband and I come from military families. The day the calendar opened up we where ready to put down out deposit only to find out they had lied to us about it being open and they had a standing reservation for that day for YEARS something you would remember with the fire department. SO we went to look else where but came back because my husbands grandma was dying and we needed somewhere close so we changed the day After that it was one thing after the other. They said we couldn't have all our guests on one level even know they said when we booked it would be no problem. The Day of my poor husband had to clean the entire place because it looked like they hadn't cleaned from the night before. They cussed out our florist for dropping off flowers in the pa... Read more

  • This is the second time I’m having to post this since the first one was removed. To start, Maureen cannot communicate honestly. We where told July fourth was open in 2016 for our 2018 wedding. We’re a family that has served this country for generations so that date was important to us. Only when the 2018 calendar opened up to find they lied and had a standing reservation with the fire department for several years prior and going forth. So we booked else where. We came back on a dif date when my husbands G ma got terminally ill and we needed some place close so she could attend. The willingness to work with us after they got our deposit was poor. We where originally told 90 guests could be comparably seated on the deck. During planning that was absolutely impossible only 50 could at most and the rest of our guests would be exiled to a lower level and would have to move the tables and chairs around themselves pre and post wedding and for them to make a game out of it. Having been at ... Read more

  • This venue may have a beautiful garden but the people and the service are horrible!! They are not clear about what they will and will not provide, they do not return phone calls. Example the florist called three times the week before the wedding as to when they could drop off flowers no one called her back so she dropped them off early because she had two trips and they are trying to charge us 600. , 300 an hour because she left them on the deck. They broke the arbor we rented, when the vendor came to pick it up at 10:50 they found it broken by the dumpster. These vendors will no longer work with the old homestead either. RUN RUN RUN!!!

  • I was the minister for the wedding of my friends Clint and Christine. While the venue was fairly nice, the treatment of my newly weds is unprofessional and unacceptable. There were empty bottles and trash left over from the night before, so after they arrived, they had to clean up. THAT SHOULDN'T BE YOUR JOB ON YOUR WEDDING DAY. Small details matter; Homestead had promised table-cloths and there were none there, so the MIL had to go out and get some last minute. THAT IS UNNECESSARY STRESS. There was a man lurking around right before the bride went down the aisle, so she had to postpone her own marriage service to find out who he was. He was apparently sent from the homestead for whatever reason, and was taking pictures. WHY WOULD THEY SEND SOMEONE UNOFFICIALLY? ARE THEY SPYING ON THE COUPLE? Finally, a beautiful arbor was lent to the couple for their wedding. After cleaning up and getting out of the Homestead by ten o clock (I was one of the many that helped make the deadline possible,... Read more

    8/1/18 Update - Hi Sue, We still do not know who you are. I believe you may have our venue confused with another venue as I have scoured my records for your name and I have not received any emails or voicemails under your name in the past 3 years. Possibly a different name was used?? If you will please respond to me I will be more than happy to address any and all issues you had with our facility. Keri Martin Event Coordinator at The Old Homestead in Crockett, CA 510.660.5174 [email protected] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7/21/18 Hello Sue.. This is Keri Martin - The Event Coordinator for The Old Homestead Event Venue in Crockett, CA. Did you send an email or leave a voicemail for me that I didn't respond to?? If that is the case then I am terribly sorry. I earnestly work at responding to every communication I receive within 2 business days. I was on vacation at the end of June with limited signal and no internet so I didn't respond to those until the beginning of July. If you would like to give me a little more detail I will be happy to review my records and find out what I missed. Again, please accept my deepest apology.

  • Loved the location and venue. Though I highly encourage everything the staff verbally tells you to get it in writing. Seems they try to squeeze as much money out of you as possible by lying to you saying one thing and claiming they never said that when it comes to the final bill. Ended getting a bill of $1,120 above our original statement
