Why We Like This Place

Mission Ranch has been a Carmel tradition for over 50 years. Once a working dairy, the Ranch is a delightful and rustic retreat, extensively renovated in 1992. Situated on the grounds are a turn-of-the-century farmhouse, a bunkhouse, hotel rooms and triplex cottages with spectacular views of Carmel Beach and rugged Point Lobos. These historic buildings, surrounded by 100-year-old cypress trees and natural landscaping, offer the kind of quiet and peaceful ambiance not found in nearby bustling downtown Carmel.

Outdoor celebrations and ceremonies are often held on the brick patio of the Patio Barn or on the 4-plex lawn adjoining the meadow. The Patio Barn is known for its friendly bar and great dance floor, and it features a stage for live music. It has a wall of full-length glass doors opening onto a brick patio with a restful view of meadows and wetlands rolling down to Carmel River Beach. The Large Barn is also used as an adjunct to the Patio Barn for larger parties with its lofty three-story-high ceiling. The Catering Department prides itself on the uncompromising quality of its food and creative menus for any occasion. If you’re looking for a place to hold a relaxed event in a classic country setting, this is it.
