Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This sophisticated, modern lodge boasts clean lines, lots of windows, and stellar views of the ranch below. The Main Entry has a rustic contemporary feel with double barn doors, a long staircase, and a truly spectacular antler chandelier.
  • A charming, modern farmhouse-style chapel is a lovely spot for your "I do"s, with a pretty bistro-lit patio for toasting after the vows. The surrounding wide-open fields, wildflower meadows, and patios offer a variety of additional options for an al fresco ceremony, cocktails, or tented reception.
  • The pièce de résistance is the main banquet hall, which features a 20-foot ceiling, stunning marble floors, adjacent rear patio, and a loft balcony. In addition, there's a second-story dressing room with dreamy vistas of the pond.
