Authentic Ranch with an Incredible View (and Goats)
Stepladder Ranch & Creamery is a fantasy land ~ a working farm, filled with goats, pigs, bees & more ~ all enjoying a natural & sustainable life with an amazing view of the surrounding hills and the Pacific Ocean. In addition to the incredible ranch/barn ~ the accommodations are lovely and absolutely modern/beautiful/spacious (not rustic in the slightest). And if this weren't enough to make you fall in love ~ the staff are kind, knowledgable and hard working. This is a Central Coast gem ~ a retreat just a bit off the beaten path...well, literally on the beaten path...and an experience waiting to happen :)Sent on 08/05/2019

A rare gem with breathtaking views!!
Our only regret was not booking our stay for longer!! What an unforgettable weekend spending it with family and friends in the most memorable place. Our wedding guests were in awe of the surrounding beauty. Stepladder was so worth the trek to get up there and we felt so lucky to even get to experience this rare piece of well manicured property. It is truly a gift that Stepladder has opened up their gates for couples wanting to find a venue that is off the beaten path. Jill the venue coordinator was so fun & easy to work with. She really made the whole experience enjoyable and as stress free as possible. What a treat getting to have her to refer any questions to and she would answer with a smile every time! You must see this venue to get the real idea of what it feels like to be up there in the privacy of nature all around. We loved sharing it with our closest family & friends for our intimate special day. Book for late spring early summer and you get to be apart of the baby goat season during your time there! Get ready to be blown away, Stepladder has the best venue for that adventurous couple in mind.Sent on 06/13/2019

Working on this property was a great experience. Jill met with us and gave us a wonderful site visit of the goats, vacation rentals, along with the ceremony/reception spaces. She even surprised us with a lovely charcuterie to snack on while we discussed our event.Sent on 08/12/2019
Throughout the planning process she guided us with helpful information and tips to ensure everything ran smoothly.
The day of the event, she was available to answer questions and helped when we needed assistance.
I would highly recommend Stepladder Ranch to anyone looking for a gorgeous and unique setting for their special event.
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
Book our $6500 wedding package (which includes two nights in our rental homes for up to 24 people) and get 33% off the third night for only $750 (usually $1000/night)! That's quite the deal!
If you are looking for a ceremony with a view that goes on for days....Stepladder is that place! Create an intimate wedding weekend for your family and friends by using the vacation homes, touring the goat/cheese farm, and soaking in the breathtaking scenery!
