Nestled in Kennedy Grove Regional Park, Fern Cottage is the perfect site for a rustic woodland wedding! The surrounding grove is situated at the base of San Pablo Dam, and its whispering eucalyptus trees offer a fragrant, calm setting for a picturesque wedding. Beautifully landscaped, casual, and rustic, the cottage offers a serene escape to its guests. The cottage features a spacious enclosed backyard where ceremonies or receptions can take place. A charming border of flowers and a covered deck fosters a sense of intimacy amidst the grand woods. A separate deck out front allows your guests to roam around and admire the natural flora surrounding the cottage. If you are looking to host a private gathering of close friends and family in a casual setting, this is it!
