My husband Tim and I were married in the gazebo, had our reception and dinner in the Lake Lodge, and stayed in the Lake Lodge suite on our wedding night this past June. We were VERY happy with the entire weekend!! Wendy is a pleasure to work with and the staff were all very kind and helpful. The property is absolutely gorgeous!! "Upscale rustic" it is, but yet very versatile! Any type of wedding would work well at this venue...and the property offers a lot of options for a small or large group. Rondele Ranch is the ideal location for a wedding! We highly recommend!Sent on 11/12/2017

The Ranch is a beautiful piece of property in a gorgeous area. The opportunities are endless with flexibility from the staff to accommodate for what your event may be. The many buildings and surrounding property are a vision. Also, many actives are available on site to keep everyone entertained! It is a newer venue, so keep in mind you will also need to be flexible in the planning process as well! Wendy and other staff members were excellent, accommodating, and professional. Would highly recommend Rondele Ranch!Sent on 11/08/2017
