Among the trees and manicured lawns of a 17-acre park owned by the City of Healdsburg you’ll find Villa Chanticleer, a charming venue that will put you in mind of a gentler, more graceful time.

Built in 1910 as a country resort, the Villa has a rich history of hosting weddings, receptions, parties and community events. Guests appreciate not only the peace and beauty of the lovely surroundings, but the facility’s thoughtful amenities as well—both the Villa and Annex have been outfitted with a state-of-of-the-art audiovisual system to enhance your event.

When you arrive on the Villa grounds, take a moment to enjoy the large trees, mature landscape, fresh air and birdsong. As you cross the stone steps to enter the Villa Main Building, notice the wide veranda shaded by a handsome, wisteria-draped arbor. Inside, you’re welcomed by an open, gracious lobby. The bar area directly ahead is conveniently U-shaped and surrounded by eight large booths, perfect for a cocktail hour or small family affair.

The doors to your right lead to the Dining Room; those on your left open to the Ballroom. Each 3,000-square-foot room features redwood paneling, light-toned hardwood floors and bucolic views. In the Dining Room, generous picture windows frame panoramic vistas of the Alexander Valley below and Geyser Peak in the distance. From the Ballroom, you can see the veranda, the lawn, and the hillside covered in oaks, maples and bay laurel trees. A centrally located, modern commercial kitchen is easily accessible from both spaces, adding to their versatility.

A short walk from the villa is the casual yet elegant Wedding Garden. Wrought-iron gates invite you into the two-level secluded lawn bordered by terraced flowerbeds and redwood trees. A quaint gazebo may serve as either a backdrop or the focal point for your ceremony.

The Annex and the Picnic/Barbecue area are excellent for casual events such as family reunions, baby showers, company picnics and rehearsal dinners.

This multifaceted facility provides a memorable setting for large or intimate gatherings, and the price is quite attractive. No wonder Villa Chanticleer has been a favorite of wedding couples and their guests for generations. Read less

The Villa is owned by the City of Healdsburg, and I dealt with Rachel in their office. Rachel was fantastic to work with; all of my inquiries received a timely response and she was very professional, flexible and acommodating. We had reserved both the Villa itself for our Reception, and the Garden area for our Ceremony. Our rain back-up plan was to hold the Ceremony inside the Villa, and it did, indeed, rain on our wedding day. We switched the set up to the Villa and are receiving a complete refund on the Garden area, even though we technically cancelled on the day of!

The only problem that I ran into is that Rachel only works 11-3, Monday through Friday, which is no fault of her own. Any emails or phone calls that I put through to her during her non-business hours were returned the next time she was in the office.

Fantastic!

The Villa is such a beautiful place to get married! The wedding garden is really peaceful tucked into a grove of redwood trees and has so many plants and flowers that it almost decorates itself.

Since the site is through the city there are a lot of strict rules that were a little frustrating but it was worth it because we really liked the site and the cost wasn't out of our budget. Elizabeth was really nice and helpful and made it a little easier as we went through the process.

The bar HAS to be through the American Legion so we weren't able to buy our own alcohol and have the bartender we wanted to serve also American Legion was pricey but it seems that every event site had one area that would cost more even if everything else seemed cost effective.
