About Pepper Tree Ranch

Nestled beautifully halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Pepper Tree Ranch is a one-of-a-kind facility that is tucked away and secluded from all of life’s challenges. With stunning panoramic views of the world-renowned Edna Valley and its own perfectly blended microclimate, Pepper Tree Ranch will offer you the perfect location for your romantic getaway. With guest accommodations for twenty-two and a variety of spaces to gather, our staff will tailor your time with us in a way that not only perfectly expresses you, but which your family and guests will remember for years to come. You have found your dream location!

THE PEPPER TREES - The pepper trees that you see on our property are Schinus molle, native to the Peruvian Andes. Legend has it that the tree got its start in California when a wandering sea-captain repaid the hospitality of the Spanish missions with a gift of seeds. Prized by Spanish colonials for its strong wood used in saddle-making, its use as a shade-tree, and its beauty, Schinus molle quickly became naturalized to the California environment. In addition, pepper tree is also cultivated as a spice tree (though not true pepper, its pink peppercorns are often added to other blends), has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, and is being researched for its anti-depressant properties.

This symbol of health, happiness, and hospitality perfectly expresses our wishes for each and every guest who finds their way to Pepper Tree Ranch and the Edna Valley.

    Beautiful Outdoor Setting, with Spacious Barn!

    Pepper Tree Ranch is amazing! The property is so pretty, from the pond, to the treehouse, to the big lawn and trees. There are countless places for gorgeous photos and it is perfect for hosting a large wedding. They have a big parking lot so you don't have to worry about hiring shuttles, lots of patio space for dining or dancing, a big roomy barn, beautiful and comfortable accommodations, and a gorgeous pond with a deck that we used for our ceremony. It was the wedding of my dreams and everything went perfectly. The bridal lounge is fantastic as well and has the perfect counters/mirrors and stools for girls to get their and hair and makeup done as well as a couple massage chairs to keep everyone relaxed ;) The staff is super sweet and helpful and want to help make everything go smoothly. Plus they also include tables and chairs, so you don't have to rent them!

    Venue was amazing for our wedding

    Vanessa and I got married on May 25, 2019. Pepper Tree had amazing service and amenities (security, tables and chairs all part of the package). We had 360 guests and they all fit perfectly on the lawn for dinner. We used the barn for dancing. Hannah and her staff were awesome to work with. The barn was also great for the rehearsal dinner.
