Shayla and the entire staff at River Ranch couldn't have been better! Our day was smooth, easy and so much fun! It was honestly the best day of our lives and it couldn't have gone any better. Everyone was kind and accommodating and they went above and beyond to make sure the groom and I were happy and comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend River Ranch for your wedding or event!

My October wedding at River Ranch was a dream. Linda, the event manager, is easy to work with, responsive over email, super friendly and helpful. Even with the drought and very little water in the Truckee River, we had a beautiful ceremony and reception outside on the river. The food is great, bartender is friendly, atmosphere is lovely, rustic and welcoming. I was very happy with the whole evening.

Linda at the River Ranch Lodge was great to work with. She helped us have a flawless wedding on the patio and we couldn't have asked for better service from Linda and the River Ranch staff. Two thumbs up.

River Ranch has an amazing vibe that is hard to get anywhere else. The flowing river makes for a beautiful background at the ceremony. I enjoy preforming ceremonies there as I know everything will be taken care of for the wedding ceremony and continue into the reception.When the sun goes down and the lights come on they party really starts, food and service are a bonus too! River Ranch is a wonderful venue.
