We are a nonprofit spiritual organization. We are in a quiet residential neighborhood next to large open space in San Anselmo (Sorich Ranch Park). Deer, hares, foxes, raccoon, and a variety of birds frequent from adjoining hiking trails. We offer a peaceful and spacious atmosphere for workshops, daylong retreats, ongoing classes, and seminars. House History The house structure was originally part of the Sausalito shipyards during World War II. Around 1954, the Marin County Sheriffs' Association acquired two of the buildings and moved them here, where they were joined to make one large hall, with a rear addition for kitchen and entertaining space. It became their training barracks. The left driveway was their shooting range. The flag pillar in front of the building still bears their pledge: "Dedicated to a better and safer community." The Shriners owned the building for a period of time, then in 1971 we acquired the property and has owned it ever since. Main Hall This is a grand, well lit space with beautiful hardwood floors, perfect for workshops, seminars, and yoga or dance classes. Approx. 2200 square feet, it accommodates well over 100 people. It has access to the kitchen, bathrooms, and the smaller meeting hall. (There is a wheelchair ramp, however it is not currently functional as it requires some grading updates which we will be doing in the coming months.) Small Hall Our second hall is an L-shaped carpeted space for smaller, cozier meetings. About 600 sq. feet with access to the kitchen, bathrooms, and the main hall. Kitchen Preparation and serving kitchen has a gas oven and stove, large double sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, ceramic dishes, utensils, table, counters, microwave, toaster oven, coffee makers, and hot water urns. Access is through either hall as well as outside. Outdoor Areas The courtyard near the kitchen door has a shaded sitting area surrounded by olive, maple, and oak trees. Behind that is a concrete picnic/barbecue space with two long picnic benches and stacks of outdoor chairs. There is a stairway to the upper parking lot and nature trails. Surrounding the property is a fire-road leading to the undeveloped upper portion. Parking and Access Off-street parking is ample, with capacity for 45 cars.

Asherah G. booked a birthday party for 40 people
We held my mom's 60th birthday celebration at this space recently. Alicia was very responsive and helpful to make sure I was able to make the event go smoothly. It is a beautiful space and property, we wished we would have booked a longer time!
Jacob R. booked an event for 75 people
The space itself was nice and well suited for what we needed (a hall for a wedding reception). It was large, clean and had nice lighting. If you’re having an event that requires lots of materials (tables, chairs, plates, speakers, etc..) I would recommend working with a party rental supplier directly rather than going through their volunteer network. We had a great time and would book again.
El G. booked an event for 60 people
We had a lovely event at this location. It is spacious with nice lighting. There are many amenities available. Alicia and staff were very helpful and responsive. This was one of their first events, so they are still learning the process, but overall everything went very smoothly. Thanks again!
Irma G. booked an event for 70 people
Just had my event here on August 4th to bring in my 30th birthday. My experience not only with the Venue but with Alicia was more than I can ask for. The location met all my needs, I was looking for a nice area, with good parking and shade, nice outside seating and good size kitchen, bathrooms and extra room. This venue met all those needs and offers way more, close to a shopping center also big plus, easy to run to store for last min things. The outside has lights on trees and out on floor, really pretty outside. Alicia was amazing to work with, it was my first time booking a venue, and she help me through the process and also help meet all my needs. This place has a lot to offer and I look forward to booking with them again. Thanks Alicia and Mike, both very helpful and great people and a beautiful location!! Irma
