From an enviable vantage atop the scenic Santa Cruz Mountains, Kennolyn offers a can't-miss choice of two unique venues, each with its own personality and considerable charm. The first is the Hilltop Hacienda Estate, which overlooks lush redwood forests and the crystal blue Monterey Bay. This handsome property not only has a fabulous view, but it's so quiet and tranquil up here that you feel like you've really gotten away from it all, even though it's just a short drive from town.
The Hacienda not only includes a main event space, but also a private home that sleeps up to 10. You enter this Spanish-style building through a sun-drenched courtyard, with a four-tiered fountain bubbling in its center and pots of vibrant flowers all around. Ceremonies are magnificent out on the Hacienda Lawn, a grand sweep of green that faces a spacious terracotta-tiled terrace, accented with Mediterranean-style landscaping. Receptions inside the banquet room are equally welcoming. Spacious and unpretentious in design, it has a wood-beamed ceiling with wrought-iron chandeliers that convey elegant simplicity. At one end of the room, a lofty fireplace mantel of rich chocolate brown provides a striking contrast to the light tan walls. Sets of white French doors along two sides open onto either the courtyard or a heavenly patio that faces the bay. When the sun goes down, you can extend the day's warmth by lighting a fire in the hearth. As you might imagine, weddings here are delightful, and for corporate seminars or retreats you'd be hard pressed to find a more restful spot.
Located in another part of this 300-acre redwood paradise is Stone Creek Village, a miniature "town" reminiscent of a bygone era when logging and mining were going concerns. The Village is the perfect destination for a family reunion or a casual, weekend-long wedding for up to 100 guests. For a ceremony in the forest, the rustic redwood amphitheater includes log seating built right into the hillside, and "I do's" are exchanged in front of a mystical backdrop of towering trees. Stone Creek Village's main gathering space is the old-fashioned Lodge, with its great river rock fireplace. Indoor and outdoor dining areas include a Town Square and fire pit, ripe with event possibilities.
Your guests can experience a nostalgic stay in the Village's cabin cottages, appointed with antiques, down comforters and vintage stoves. Before and after the wedding, friends and family have plenty of activities to enjoy: lounge by the Village's swimming pool; organize team challenges on the tennis, basketball and volleyball courts; or simply follow the lilting invitation of resident songbirds to explore the hiking trails that lead into the surrounding forest.
From welcome refreshments to day-after brunch, Kennolyn's hospitality and gorgeous setting will bring beauty and serenity to any event.
