When you choose to get married in the majesty of the mountains, you have unique choices that will assure you one of the most exciting and romantic days of your life. Whether you choose a ceremony at the quaint Shaver Lake Community Church, an outdoor event overlooking the lake, or an intimate exchange of vows on the front lawn of the inn, we will help you plan your wedding and intimate reception for your friends and family.
The Elliott House Bed & Breakfast, nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the village of Shaver Lake, offers a picturesque setting that stands apart from others. Much of the beauty is attributed to the 5,600-foot elevation, surrounded by majestic pine trees that flourish beneath true blue skies.
The inn is best suited for small gatherings, up to 25 people, depending on the time of year. The gathering place within the inn, the Fireside Room, reflects a lodge-style décor with handcrafted cedar walls, oak floors and ambient lighting, creating a cozy background for an intimate reception of friends and family. The focal point is a hand set granite stone fireplace, dating back more than 50 years. In the warmer weather, you are invited to take advantage of the inn's two decks, plus the lawn and garden, ideal for outdoor entertaining.
Romantic suites feature luxurious feather beds, jetted tubs, cozy sitting areas and fireplaces. Awaken to a full gourmet breakfast each morning and in the early evening enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres in the Fireside Room. Four seasons provide skiing, excellent fishing, hiking and boating activities on a series of pristine alpine lakes.
Our honeymoon package pampers you with a romantic pairing of champagne and chocolates upon arrival, breakfast in bed, an intimate candlelight supper, plus ensuite massages. As a keepsake gift included is a print of a professional watercolor painting of the Elliott House, as a lasting memento of your special event.
