Carmel Valley Ranch

Monterey/Carmel Valley



Just 20 minutes from the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Valley Ranch was previously a charming 1879 farm house. This vintage ranch is situated on nearly 500 acres and adjacent to Garland Ranch Regional Park. Imagine your ceremony nestled in a pinot noir vineyard, surrounded by an oak grove and lavender fields. Carmel Valley Ranch is the venue to have a rustic, yet elegant, affair with a natural vineyard-like setting whether your reception is in the Redwood Room or Oakwood Room. Offer your guests an unforgettable, unique experience hosting your reception celebration on The Range or in the charming Organic Garden. Step out to the private terrace to steal a newlywed’s kiss absorbing the sweeping views of the Santa Lucia Mountains. For the ultimate experience, the Golf clubhouse adjacent the verdant, stone-lined, perfectly manicured Valley Lawn offers sweeping views of the valley and hills. Toast to your new union and enjoy your unforgettable picturesque, scenic photos at the elite Carmel Valley Ranch.
