Burning Man was the honeymoon destination for the young couple accompanied by a trusty Stout tent. This was the source of inspiration for a glamping village!

We hosted about 30 people at our recent event and all our guests all commented on how nice it was to step back and be able to just absorb the lovely surroundings. The owners were very easy to work with and I know my boss would love to book this again, if even just privately. We used the barn, palapa and fire pit primarily, and had plenty of room for our needs.
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.
