Charming and Peaceful

The Old Whaling Station Adobe and Garden was built in 1847 by Scottish adventurer David Wight and soon after became the headquarters for the Old Monterey Whaling Company. This wedding site is 50 yards from Fisherman’s Wharf and the Bay. Its gardens are lovely year round and the brick patios accommodate up to 100 guests comfortably for a seated, out door event. Inside are two stories of authentic early California living with 2 upstairs bedrooms that are perfect for a bride’s changing room and a grooms changing room. It has 2 private bathrooms.

It is surrounded by manicured gardens. It has a claw-footed bath tub upstairs. No dance floor needed. Parking is situated over a bridge in a secure parking garage 150 feet away. It is surrounded by many hotels (Marriott. Portola Plaza. Hotel Pacific.) and main street (Alvarado St.) is only a 4 minute walk away, both being very convenient when your wedding/event concludes and you fancy to either walk to your bedroom or walk to the bars to continue partying in your gown and tux.
