History, seclusion, spacious accommodations, and a magnificent wilderness setting—the Aliso Creek Inn and Golf Course has all the best features of the great lodges along a county side…plus it's just a short walk from the seashore, a quick trolley ride from downtown Laguna Beach, and a mere 25 minutes from John Wayne Airport. And, this local treasure is also well equipped to handle even the most elaborate weddings and events. You know, the kind that turn into week-long vacations because no one wants to leave.
Spread out creekside on the south end of Aliso Canyon and surrounded by Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, the property was first established in 1871 as a 152-acre homestead. It was later purchased and repurposed as a resort which featured a 9-hole golf course and plans for a hotel, guest lodges, clubhouse, pool, event pavilion, restaurant and other recreational amenities. Today all of these structures exist, and many, though thoughtfully renovated, still retain a great deal of the glamour and polish of bygone days.
Cocktails and dinner can be served on the Magnolia Patio, named for the pair of trees planted in honor of the inn's prior owners, or you and your guests can celebrate indoors in the magnificently appointed Special Event Center.
Most of the rooms here feature an abundance of wood: gleaming walnut floors; lustrous paneling; vaulted beamed ceilings with skylights; huge oaken doors; and a selection of handsome built-in all-wood booths and tables. A couple of fireplaces add warmth, while French windows and doors frame terraces and wraparound views. Marvelous bohemian accents, some crafted by talented local artisans, catch the eye. As you take it all in, you feel a romantic sense of being transported back to the heyday of sophistication and style during which many of the country's great lodges were built. Striking a decidedly different note, the Terrace Ballroom charms with lacey chandeliers, cream-colored walls, and dreamy champagne accents.
Outdoor ceremonies and receptions are beautifully situated next to the golf course, where the carefully tended fairways and greens, waterways and bridges provide a lush background.

Magnolia Patio, which accommodates 250 people is the outdoor space with all around canyon walls that rise up like the sides of an exquisitely landscaped bowl, creating a natural windbreak of wildflowers and trees—a 360-degree Shangri-la.
The Terrace Ballroom accommodates 130 people indoors.
