I can't say enough about Lassen Meadows Ranch! My husband and I used this venue for our wedding in July 2017. Debbie was incredible to work with. They allow you so much more time and flexibility than any other venues I researched. It also helps that they have multiple buildings and the ranch is stunning! I love the different areas there were to work with as well as the different aspects. The water, trees, eagle, butterflies, etc made it so incredible. Our guest loved the natural beauty and the photos turned out incredible. I would have uploaded photos, but they were too large. So go check out Instagram. #lassenmeadowsranch

When our daughter decided to get married we were up against all kinds of challenges. She was living in Texas as was her groom & most of his family & friends. Having grown up in California in a rural community our daughter treasured the summers she had spent at Lake Almanor & that is where she hoped to get married. None of the club facilities we looked into in the Lake Almanor area were willing to meet our needs for privacy & the length of time we needed the facility. We had also visited several venues in the Sacramento Valley closer to our home, however we still faced time restrictions & very high rental prices that did not include extras like accommodations. In our online search for options we were were lucky enough to stumble upon Lassen Meadows Ranch. We could not have been Luckier! A private & stunning location on 160 acres with it's own small lake, beautiful meadows, lots of forest, & cute cozy cottages for the wedding party to stay. The best part, we could have the whole venue from Thursday to Sunday! Where else would we find that? The venue owners, Debbie & Russ were very gracious & hospitable they made sure our needs were more than met & they helped make planning go very smoothly. We were allowed onto the property multiple times to take photos, measurements, etc. Planning a wedding for a couple living states away is Super challenging, but with months of planning & solid input from Debbie, we did it! This is a venue that can be made as simple or as elegant as you wish. The guests were in awe of the sheer beauty of the natural backdrop & the wedding could not have been any more spectacular if we tried. During the ceremony the resident eagle soared over & a butterfly landed on our daughters veil, all thankful signs that our loved ones were sharing the day. Roasted marshmellos & sparklers were the perfect end. We are ecstatic to have come across Debbie & Russ and their gorgeous property. We definitely rate the venue a 5++++++

How do you put to words one of the best experiences of your life? Lassen Meadows Ranch was where we decided to get married two years ago. We knew we wanted to get married up at Lake Almanor because it had been a family vacation destination since before I was born. At the time there were little to no wedding venues available up at the lake. I was hesitant about Lassen Meadows as it is not actually part of the Lake, but up in the lake region. The first time we went to look at the property, everything changed. Debbie met us to show us around and we fell in love with the location. Debbie is the kindest and most helpful human being. We were sold and in the following year got married at the property. It is a trek to get out there, but so so worth it and all part of the fun- to have an off the grid type wedding. The property offers gorgeous photo opportunities from the meadow to the lake. The cabins and the grounds are extremely well kept. Needless to say, this is now a part of my husband and my history and we feel it is necessary to make a point to come back on our anniversary every year. Debbie is so kind every year when I reach out to her and we now have an ongoing joke about seeing each other next September. Highly recommend this hidden gem.
