With all of my travels around the world, I feel the Inn at Newport Ranch offers some of the most awesome, breathtaking natural outdoor settings for weddings. When you have vistas on cliffs, hideaways in the mountains and over 2,000 acres, there are so many choices.
“Bride’s Magazine” named the Inn at Newport Ranch “One of the 10 Best Wedding Spots for 2016”.
Would you prefer your wedding in the mountains, by the brook or with the ocean as your background? Instead of the usual, traditional wedding, make a statement with a special, creative way to take your vows.
Northern California’s rugged coastline, Redwood Mountains and wilderness are magical, the atmosphere appeals to those who want to breathe clean air and explore nature.
Because all events should be unique and magical, the Inn at Newport Ranch likes to customize menus and offerings to meet your taste and budget from intimate dinners to gala events for up to 99 people.
Whether it is a birthday, family reunion, anniversary, retreat, groups, conference, business meeting or any event that is special, just for you, the Inn at Newport Ranch is the place!
They offer several locations- Celebration Point, Panoramic Hilltop, Council Bluff, The Green, The Newport Room, the North Lawn, in the mountains, the forest and at the ranch.
The banquet room in the main building has a wall of windows with views of the ocean.
There is a conference room with a separate entrance in the lower level of Redwood House. It has a wide screen TV, and Internet service. The room is dramatic as it is here that the large redwood trees holding up the structure are bolted to the floor and rise up through the ceiling. There is a cozy seating arrangement around a fireplace and, when not used for conferences, the room is available to our guests for recreation. The conference room can seat 40 people.
