ReviewsWrite a review
- The most picturesque venue
Lush lavender, hills and valleys, Deer and Pheasants roam freely
- Incredible food and quality for 110 guests
Best Chef in Monterey/Carmel (2015, 2016)
- Service above and beyond
Staff that took it upon themselves to fix external vendor errors (when flowers didn’t turn up they went out and bought them)
- So many personal touches
Complementary rooms, champagne, wedding gifts, cards signed from the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Ireland (I’m Irish)
As best as I will try to do our Experience at CVR justice, no words could ever be enough to compliment how we were looked after. If you choose to have your wedding here its 5 star treatment the whole way. 6 months afterwards, we are still beaming from what was the best day of our lives. Thank you, Thank you, to everyone at Carmel Valley Ranch!
We got married in June 2016 in what was the most amazing day possible. Take our advice and put this on your list of venues to see.
From the moment we checked in to CVR the service was incredible and we were made to feel like Royalty. So many little touches just add up to so much. They are not obligated to look after you way they do but its a testament to how they choose to treat you.

- When we checked into our room, one of our wedding gifts from CVR was a card signed by the Lord Mayor of Dublin. I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. CVR would have picked this fact up from conversations with us and acted on it. Such an amazing thought and gesture to make the time and effort to get this.
- On our wedding day, flowers had not arrived from a vendor we choose. When CVR found out, they took matters into their own hands and sent someone to go out and purchase flowers for us (at no cost). They truly want the best day for you and will stop at nothing to make sure of it. We can’t wait to go back for our anniversary.

We love this property, especially since it has been completely redone. The food, staff, and service is impeccable. It is the perfect setting for a special couple!
Carmel Valley Ranch is beautiful and has so many great sites. From vineyard backdrops to organic gardens and ballrooms, it has something for everyone. Their guest rooms are very spacious which is perfect for that full bridal party getting ready. They have on site transportation and awesome amenities like their multiple pools to enjoy on your special weekend there. I highly recommend adding any of their salt or honey to your welcome bags.
We have provided the ceremony and reception music for many weddings at Carmel Valley Ranch (with both our band and as DJs) and it is a beautiful location, especially for the golf lover. A ceremony overlooking the golf course is breathtaking. Their food is excellent and their staff is accommodating. We highly recommend this for a wedding venue.--Ann Ezzo, Steve Ezzo Entertainment
