Dawn Ranch Lodge is a fifteen acre property nestled amongst towering redwoods on the banks of the Russian River. Built in 1905, we offer rustic tranquility and a contemporary atmosphere. Individual cottages blend harmoniously into the stunning landscape of ancient apple orchards, bamboo groves, grassy meadows and beautifully landscaped gardens.
Whether you choose an intimate ceremony under the boughs of the blossoms in the orchard, or a large celebration in our beautiful meadow, this is the perfect romantic setting to celebrate your union. We have 53 cabins, swimming pool, band shell, boathouse, bon fire pit and our Roadhouse Restaurant with full bar and lounge.
The perfect place for a destination wedding, families and friends can stay together on one property and enjoy the many nearby sites and activities. We are just twenty minutes from the spectacular coast and five minutes to Armstrong Redwoods State Park and Northwood Golf Course. There are over one hundred Sonoma wineries in the Russian River wine growing region including the historic Korbel Champagne Cellars. The outdoor enthusiast will love horseback riding, whale watching, kayaking, bird watching and hiking ~ all within minutes.
