Ringed by low hills and surrounded by vineyards and ranches, the Inn is a perfect hideaway for a family-centered wedding weekend or an executive retreat. You’ll have a strong sense of privacy here; the Inn can be entirely yours for either bridal or corporate events. You’re in a country setting, but the building and grounds are carefully groomed. Attention to detail is evident everywhere—in the carved wooden guestroom doors, the fountain and waterfall, the smooth contours of the swimming pool, and in the abundance of flowers and plants. Ivy and ferns spill from pockets in the stone entryway wall, original artwork and lithographs adorn almost every room, painted vines twine through the dining hall, rose bushes lean along the front fence—and, of course, there are orchids, too.
Wedding ceremonies can take place in the dining room, with the French doors at the back thrown open to the pool and fountain just beyond, or in the garden under an arch of lavender that frames the olive trees surrounding the property. Either way, the bride has a staircase on which to make her dramatic descent.
So if, in fact, you really are feeling utterly overwhelmed and wish somebody would take charge for you, don’t hesitate to call. The Purple Orchid Inn can do everything or nothing at all, it’s up to you.
