The colonial revival Admiral’s Mansion, once the home of the highest ranking officer on Mare Island, is a wonderful location for your wedding reception or business retreat.
Experience the opulence of a mansion of the Victorian era that features an abundance of exquisite details on the main floor: stained glass windows illuminating elegant stairs flanked by hand-turned balustrades; oak floors shining in rich hues; dentine woodwork moldings adorning high ceilings that ease the flow of cool air during the hot summers; beveled and leaded glass cabinets in the dining room; fire places to warm the rooms on chilly evenings; sturdy tables supported by intricately carved wood bases topped with silky marble or lush brocade coverings; an 1893 Steinway concert grand piano; all echoes of a gentility not often found in modern homes. This was the home of a man who controlled the civilian world equivalent of a multi-billion dollar business.
The Admiral’s Mansion is available for daily rental, and can accommodate a variety of functions, including weddings, receptions, and meetings. The cost is $1,200 for 7 hours. (A combined wedding and reception will incur an additional $200 charge). For shorter time periods, the cost is $175 per hour with a 3 hour minimum. The home can accommodate 80-90 persons seated inside at tables, or up to 200 persons in the garden. Call Dave Smith at (707) 649-8024 for more information.
