We went on a rainy day the house is very nice ,it had lots of stain glass and a neat fire place ,over all it is like many other houses from the era there did not seem to be any interesting fact about the house or owners of the house but the house was beautiful and the grounds are lovely it would be a great place for a wedding. The bush house is very close and you may want to see that on the same day.
They serve tea . . . The best high tea in the Willamette valley, your have to book ahead as it is not an everyday occurrence. Also wonderful house tour, events (weddings here are popular), meetings in a truly memorable environment. Gorgeous gardens, the gardens are open most days.
I try very hard to refrain from posting negative reviews. It's been my experience that often times reviews written out of anger or are emotionally charged, come across as just that. I've waited several weeks for the manager of Deepwood to change her mind and do the right thing, but it doesn't seem that will happen. Unfortunately, you've left me no choice but voice my opinion about your business practices. My son and future daughter in law chose Deepwood for the site of their wedding next October 2017. In mid September they dutifully signed the contract and put money down as a deposit. 2 weeks later, my future daughter in law's mother suffered a horrific and catastrophic brain injury that as of this writing (mid November) still has her hospitalized in an ICU unit. This has been a life altering event for the entire family and money is tight. When their plans changed and scaling back was the only alternative, they asked to break the contract and get their money back. Deborah refused. Without so much as an "I'm sorry", they got, "we have to stick with what the contract says". So basically, tough luck. Surely after 2 months, one would think that doing the right thing and quite possibly showing a little compassion for the situation would change her mind. Unfortunately it hasn't. With 11 months to go, surely they can re-book the date for another couple that can make it. Maybe more than anything, this should serve as a warning to any potential brides to be. Buyer beware. Know what kind of people you are dealing with. Know that they aren't interested in making your day the best it can be, rather they are more concerned with keeping your money and the fact that a contract was broken. Be aware that if a family emergency arises, there is no viable recourse. I'm saddened by this but better to find out now, than closer to an actual wedding date.
A friend of mine recently put a deposit down to reserve this venue for a wedding in October 2017. Shortly after doing so, her mother suffered a severe brain injury and has been hospitalized since. Seeing as how there is a need for them to help pay for her care, the wedding and all $$ set aside for it have gone to provide the necessities of life for her. They called and talked to 'Deborah', who--in short--told them 'too bad'. No refunds. I think this place is horrible and will not refer another patient to them for a wedding or any other event. Compassion is something that we are all inherently endowed with--it takes work to rid ones self of it. Apparently, Deepwood Museum and Garden personnel have been hard at work in doing so!! You should be ashamed of yourself!!
I'm so thrilled I was able to hold my wedding at the Historic Deepwood Estate. The price for the beauty of the venue, the inclusion of chairs and tables, break down and set-up was incredibly affordable. The gardens are so well-maintained, it made for stunning photos. Their on-site events coordinator was communicative and very helpful in providing guidance to make the day perfect. I received nothing but compliments from my guests about the venue. I would recommend Deepwood to any bride looking for a garden wedding in this region.
