All kinds of events are welcome at our historic ranch. Unlike many historic venues, this one has a relaxed flexibility toward new and creative purposes. The open space in Northern California just begs for free-spirited private events to come bring their creativity + offers up a ton of beautiful light and rolling hills. Escape your usual environment and use open space and natural elements for your festive celebration. Endless rolling hills, open fields and big skies will open your perspective. The charming 1890's ranch house is home-base for a larger event out by the barn. The large windows allow natural light to flood into the spaciousness created from from high ceilings, an open floor plan and hardwood floors. Inside the house, there is enough space for 12 comfortably at the dining table. The front porch can accommodate up to 60 seated. The iconic barn was built in the 1860's. Gatherings can take place downstairs in the barn which was home to a team of horses, or upstairs in the old hay loft (upstairs is limited to 40). An outdoor deck named the 'palapa' serves a variety of purposes from team building or dancing to lounge and yoga.

I cannot recommend this space enough! We used the barn for a company holiday party and it was just magical. Christianna is so wonderful to work with! She was incredibly helpful and super responsive. Definitely host your next event here! We will absolutely be coming back.
Christianna is a fantastic host. The communication was flawless and she made the photo crew feel at home. The Ranch is gorgeous and very well maintained. This location offers a lot of variety ranging from beautifully weathered wood surfaces to charming open fields. It is the perfect location for a commercial or editorial shoot. This is by far the best location we have shot at in the Bay Area. We'll definitely be back soon.
