Event Center


Overlooking Putah Creek in the southwest section of the UC David Arboretum, Putah Creek Lodge is a rustic lodge tucked away from the hustle and bustle of campus. Inside the cozy lodge is a distinctive fireplace that welcomes guests with a warm glow. French doors lead to a patio that circles the building and overlooks acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. The grounds of the Putah Creek Lodge include an amphitheater with bench seating around a fire pit that can serve as a unique outdoor ceremony site. After the ceremony, take advantage of the picturesque, manicured lawns and creek for photos before gathering in the Lodge to dine and celebrate your new union with your friends and family. Featuring a contemporary yet distinctly intimate atmosphere, Putah Creek Lodge is perfect for couples looking for a gorgeous natural backdrop.
