TRULY UNIQUE

MANY WAYS TO CELEBRATE

15 acres of pristine nature allows for multiple memorable settings over the course of your destination wedding- gather by the pool, enjoy a bonfire at the Boathouse, dine in our Kitchen Garden or historic lodge, dance under the stars, and experience world class wine tasting in the beautiful Russian River Valley all in the same weekend.

Our dedicated staff will ensure that your wedding weekend is complete with cherished memories and polished events full of laughter and joy.

 

SOPHISTICATED GLAMPING

We have 53 rustic and comfortably restored cabins and cottages that your wedding guests will love.  Whether they're tucked beneath giant redwoods, meadow-side, or by the pool, our cabins offer a modern take on camping in a pristine historic venue.

 

THE MORE THE MERRIER

All are welcome to celebrate your big day, even your four-legged friends.  We look forward to meeting your loved ones and learning how we can ensure everyone's comfort.  Dawn Ranch Lodge can accommodate up to 500 guests for ceremony and reception, sleeping 117 guests on site.

 

DELICIOUS AND DELECTABLE

The enjoyment of good food and tasty libations is a key part of any memorable wedding celebration.  Our farm-to-table kitchen focuses on local ingredients, robust flavors, and beautiful presentations to awe you and your guests.  Local craft brews, award winning wines of the region and artisan cocktails bring life to all of your celebrations here at Dawn Ranch Lodge.  We take pride in and are inspired by the innumerable raves we receive on the food and beverage aspect after a Dawn Ranch wedding weekend.

Kevin and I want to express to Julia, Michael and all of the staff at the Dawn Ranch a truly heart felt thank you for everything you did for us in making our wedding day so extremely perfect and special.
The service they provided from the moment we contacted them was very professional and comfortable. Julia and Michael both were instrumental in helping us come to the right decisions in creating the event we were hoping for. They made what could have been a stressful time; completely easy and issue free. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the setting, the food and the atmosphere. The Dawn Ranch Staff is top notch, and we couldn�t have done it with out them.
With Sincerity,
Julie and Kevin Peebles

We could not have chosen a more perfect wedding venue than Dawn Ranch. It was beautiful, with redwoods, a meadow for the ceremony, a little apple orchard for the reception, a warm and cozy bar for the after-party, and cute cottages to house guests. We had many guests coming from the East Coast so it was great that everyone could stay on the property together in a beautiful setting.. it was like a summer camp. The cottages were rustic (no TVs or phones, etc.) but they were recently remodeled and comfortable for guests of all ages. The Welcome BBQ on Friday night was a great opportunity for all the guests to break the ice and get to know each other in a casual setting.

Amy Meadows and the staff did a wonderful job coordinating our wedding. They thought of everything big and small, from making sure all the vendors knew what to do to making sure the rehearsal went smoothly to putting paperweights on the escort cards. They thought of every detail so that the wedding day was unbelievably stress-free for me, my family, and wedding party. The food was terrific (the sea bass, the pork tenderloin, the polenta lasagna - all amazing). So many guests told us how much they loved the venue. This was one of the more expensive venues we considered, especially since we had to pay for any unfilled cabins, but I couldn't be happier with the decision.
