Overview

About the property

80 acres, barn, open deck, 1890's ranch house, cabins, glamping tents

All kinds of events are welcome at California Ranch Events from corporate to weddings and mindfulness retreats. Unlike many historic venues, this one has a relaxed flexibility toward new and creative purposes.

The historic charm and open space at California Ranch Events just begs for creativity + offers up a ton of beautiful light and rolling hills. The fifth generation owner, Christianna, who happens to be a yoga teacher, opened up the ranch as a venue and offers yoga for any event but loved teaching brides and their crew for the big day. Talk about the magic elixir for a chilled out bride!

Christianna and her husband are bringing new life while honoring and preserving the history of the ranch. Burning Man was the honeymoon destination for the young couple accompanied by a trusty Stout tent. This was the source of inspiration for a glamping village! Along with a charming farmhouse and cabins, celebrations here can be transformed into a full-on weekend retreat.

There is a story around every corner. Wheat that won a gold medal at the Pairs World's Fair in 1900 is now being regrown and repurposed with an exciting future - wheat whiskey! The family is in the process to become a ranch distillery so they can make it themselves.

The charming 1890's ranch house is an option for getting ready or as a home-base for a larger event out by the barn. The large windows allow natural light to flood into the spaciousness created from from high ceilings, an open floor plan and hardwood floors. Inside the house, there is enough space for 12 comfortably at the dining table. The front porch can accommodate up to 60 seated.

Inquire about making it a multi-day retreat with four bedrooms in the house, one cabin, and glamping tents.

The iconic barn was built in the 1860's. Gatherings can take place downstairs in the barn which was home to a team of horses, or upstairs in the old hay loft (upstairs is limited to 40).

An outdoor deck named the 'palapa' serves a variety of purposes from team building or dancing to lounge and yoga.

An 1860's old-redwood bunkhouse converted to a music studio is also a versatile space. We've hosted many guest musicians for creating, recording or shooting music. It also serves as a killer groomsmen room so the ladies can use the house.

Inquire about team-building activities, whiskey tastings & yoga.

About Christianna Reinstein Kohler

As a yoga teacher, I thought San Francisco was the place for me and I lived there for several years. I recently headed the call to return to my family ranch where I am 5th generation. Like many children, I strayed pretty far from the family business, spent a year in Egypt, traveled much of the Middle East, some of Africa, South America and Europe. I became a registered yoga teacher in India and finished my 500 hr RYT certification in Bali. After developing a strong sense of self, I was open to the opportunity to return to my roots and infuse my spirit back into my ranch. I decided to return and share the sense of spaciousness and peace that I experience out here.

Christianna Reinstein Kohler purchased this farmhouse in 1884

Why Christianna Reinstein Kohler chose San Francisco Bay Area

My family has been ranching here since 1884. It has been passed down through generations and my brother and I are now running the operations. This place is infused with an incredibly rich history and it has a magic air about it. Many visitors attest to a new found ability to take a deep breathe and relax surrounded by nature.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Since the ranch house was built in 1893, the high ceilings and many windows give a sense of spaciousness that is reflected when you look out the window at the rolling hills and grazing horses. We have all the modern amenities you would need to be comfortable during your stay while enjoying a rustic experience. Enjoy the morning sun on the front porch and hot tub under the night sky. Hike up the tallest hill for an unforgettable view at sunset. Practice yoga on our outdoor yoga deck, or play music inside our music studio. There is inspiration all around for writing, photography and music. The possibilities are endless for this unique space.
