On WeddingWire since 2017

Beecham Ranch is a rustic countryside wedding venue located in Los Osos, California. The property has been owned, operated, and occupied by the Beechams since the 1920s, most recently by Craig and his family. It was after noticing that the events industry lacked authentic Western-style event spaces that he decided to open his doors to the public in 2015. Today, the venue itself offers a unique experience as you host your big day in a wild west setting.

Facilities and Capacity

Your day begins by preparing in the comfort of the get-ready rooms provided to you, your partner, and your respective parties. All the essentials needed to get you aisle-ready can be found here. For your various wedding activities, both indoor and outdoor event spaces are available. The property has many beautiful places to exchange vows, surrounded by the serenity of California's natural beauty. One such location is the grotto, a 3000-square-foot area that is a visually stunning backdrop for any special occasion. For your reception, the renovated hay barn is an enchanting rustic area to celebrate and toast your matrimony. Defined by its wooden structure and functional concrete flooring, it boasts a delightful sense of old-world charm. The barn can comfortably accommodate up to 300 individuals, making it ideal for both intimate and extravagant gatherings.

Services Offered

Craig and his staff at Beecham Ranch strive to make your planning process as easy as possible by offering you a range of helpful services. Included in your rental of the venue are two attentive aides that aim to make your wedding a flawlessly executed success. Your caterers have access to the commercial-grade onsite kitchen, while a cozy fire pit offers the opportunity to have a festive barbecue. What's more, you and your guests can access the bar area. Craig has an extensive list of vendors to help facilitate the selling of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. You are welcome to stay at the ranch for an extended period of three days and two nights. The overnight accommodations include the 5-star rated cabin, honeymoon suite, and many vacant spots for RVs.

A M A Z I N G !!!!!!

Cow Camp is OFF THE CHARTS beautiful. Several of our guests said this is the BEST wedding venue they've ever been to!! The way we had it set up was absolutely gorgeous, and getting to take photos attop the property was AMAZING!
The bistro lighting makes for an incredible outdoor dining experience, and the barn is the place to dance all night. We got married under the sycamores with the most BEAUTIFUL backdrop! Cow Camp is without a doubt the most underrated, best kept secret of SLO county venues!

Perfect Wedding Day for my daughter and new son-in-law.

Take a step back in time...and meet a real-life, down-earth-cowboy...Craig Beecham. My daughter and her new husband arranged their wedding through their mutual friend via referral. Craig is very accommodating with his property, and rightly proud of his family's heritage and history there. This venue is simply stunning in it's setting back in the Los Osos Valley, among the hills and Oak trees. The quiet, country serenity during the daytime is very seductive to those of us that are weary of city noise. The place really comes to life under the lights of the Grotto and the Barn. The possibilities for events here is not just limited to weddings. Corporate events and intimate concerts with a Farm-To-Table dinner would be perfect. Beecham Ranch is the epitome of a Western themed getaway...and it's doesn't get anymore Western than the California Coast, surrounded by Morro Bat to the north, San Luis Obispo inland, and Montana de Oro State Park to the south. My daughter and new son-in-law's 150 guest wedding was simply perfect.

Many thanks, Craig Beecham, for such an incredible setting.

Our wedding was incredible

My husband and I stayed in the miners cabin and discovered this gorgeous venue. We then decided to have our wedding here. It is secluded and absolutely beautiful. Craig was very responsive and helped me every step of the way. We rented this venue for our rehearsal dinner and wedding and even stayed an extra night in the cabin. Craig and his sons were so helpful throughout the whole event. The grotto lights were stunning, the kitchen was fully equipped, and the barn was beautiful. All around we had the wedding of our dreams. I would highly recommend this venue to other couples. It’s very affordable, Craig includes chairs, tables, and staff on the day of the event, he also provides you access to the venue the day before and after. Overall 10/10 experience, topped off by the absolutely stunning views.
