We'd love it if you would mention that you found Middle Ranch on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
Surrounded by the San Gabriel Mountains and bordered by the Angeles National Forest on three sides, Middle Ranch’s civilized lawns and attractive buildings are a pleasant surprise in the midst of this rugged landscape.
The 650-acre property, known primarily as an exclusive equestrian country club, is also a spectacular place for a wedding. Ceremonies are held on the expansive front lawn with a backdrop of trees and mountains. The venue’s main building, the award-winning Lodge, harmonizes nicely with its surroundings and has been recognized for its architectural style. Beneath its Spanish tile roof you’ll find a large “living room” that’s ideal for socializing over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The ambiance here is very relaxed, with a lofty, open-beamed ceiling, an abundance of warm natural wood, terracotta-tile floors and a handsome, two-sided fieldstone fireplace. Leather couches and chairs, along with antique Oriental carpets, complete the décor.
French doors open out to a lovely and spacious garden patio. Partly shaded by fragrant eucalyptus trees, it’s an intimate spot for an al fresco reception. A few steps uphill, there’s a pool with a large deck backed by an untamed hillside. You and your guests can sit by the water enjoying cocktails, or dine at tables set up on the patio.
The contrast between the wild, natural setting and the effortless elegance of the venue itself makes Middle Ranch a very special—and distinctly Californian—place to celebrate.
