Spring Ranch was an amazing venue for our wedding. The views, the history, and the location made our reception and stay magical. Our entire stay was filled with exploration, happiness and joy. The venue was magical in every sense. The only recommendation I have is for the owners to be a little more flexible with accommodating extra nights. Otherwise, everything else was perfect.Sent on 12/24/2013

Beware! Our gifts and cards were ransacked when left in the barn overnight. We believe it to be the groundskeeper. He walked through the barn with us and started saying 'Sorry, Sorry!' once we told him we had cameras on the area. The owners admitted to a potential problem and haven't responded since. Other than spending the last 2 days distraught and sad, it was a lovely wedding. It's a shame that we left on such a sour note. It's a great venue if you want to do a full weekend event rather than a single night event. Don't expect any savings by adding additional nights to your package. They will charge you full rate for additional nights in the house.Sent on 10/27/2016
Spring Ranch, Mendocino's reply:Christee, we are very sorry about this incident. This is the first time this has happened. We vigorously quizzed all our employees and the vendors about your missing gifts and cards. Unfortunately this was to no avail. Thank you for you suggestion about offering discounted extra nights as we know do this. Again sorry for your loss.
