If you still want to know more about the ranch itself! This is a historical Ranch, originally known as "The Condor's Nest" and it is a place like no other. It is located in Pala, CA,  (North San Diego County),  up top a long winding road -approx. 3.5 miles off of highway 76.  We are elevated approx. 1,800 feet above sea level, so the ocean breezes make it cooler than nearby Temecula and surrounding areas.  It is private and secluded. You will drive up the long palm lined and stone wall driveway to see the Animals! ...we've got horses, llamas, an alpaca, a donkey, chickens, turkeys, pot bellied pigs, goats, a cow, a long-horn steer, a pack of large dogs, the old Red Barn (an old working barn), the horse arena, the gorgeous grounds, (we've got 20 acres), the windmill, the tractors, the 1951 American La France Fire Truck, an Old Slaughterhouse, {now a pool house kitchen}, the Cottage (which used to be an old bunk house), and a giant adobe ranch style house, built by the famous Weir Brothers, & designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's Senior Apprentice, Fritz Liebhardt, which was made to be in the shape of a cross. 
Behind huge iron private gates, this all Glass and Adobe brick Old California Ranch house, 6,000 square feet, is furnished in cowboy and Indian ranch style.  Pala is a small unincorporated area in North San Diego County and is close to Fallbrook and Temecula.  The ranch offers all the amenities of home, but in a sprawling, private and peaceful 20 acre "Rustic Elegance" ranch/estate setting. There are 5 bedrooms in the Ranch house (allowing sleeping for 10 in beds for the main house) if lodging is requested, also in addition, there is a cottage which allows sleeping for 5 and includes a kitchen and two bathrooms.  Come for the weekend or stay for a week --it's a great family getaway and you feel like you are in another world.  We have all of the "wedding stuff" onsite for your Wedding Ceremony and Reception.  We have plenty of space, gorgeous views, and the whole place is yours!  We've got chairs, tables, linens, even heirloom silver flatware and china (of course all mismatched) and a bar and dancefloor.  In addition a beautiful extra large pool with lush trees all around and on a clear day the ocean is visible ... you will see a sparkle off across the horizon.  Or you could have a backdrop Barn Wedding!    We think spending time with those special people near and dear to you is something many weddings miss out on with their small windows of time --and especially those loved ones you don't get to see very often... spend some time over breakfast in the big ranch house having nice long talks.... not just the 5 minutes of quick conversation at the wedding reception and then that's it!  Your family & friends are what it's all about - and those memories will last a lifetime.   So many beautiful spots to make your day unique.  The beauty of it is you don't have to rush out because the next Wedding is on their way in! We make it all about you and book only 1 Wedding or Event per weekend!!!! It's about making it special for you and spending time with your family!  You may even want to book extra nights and stay for up to a week!   As long as it's available you are free to add on as many extra nights as you wish and make it a destination wedding and vacation all in one!  Our favorite compliment is hearing from the bride and groom afterwards that their guests said "it was the best wedding they've ever been to"!

We include the venue  "day of wedding coordinator" for your wedding day so each Wedding has a timeline and agenda so the day will flow well and be individually tailored to fit your specifications!  {*if you feel that it's necessary, you are welcome to add on extra time with our coordinator, or hire outside additional decorating help - we welcome it --each Wedding is so unique and personalized regardless!}
 
We want to make your day stress free! -and yes, we have figured out how -- it IS possible to have a stress-free beautiful Wedding where everyone has an amazing time!!  
 
Many of our families/couples make the ranch their home when they check in --they bring up groceries so they can relax, eat, cook, bird watch, watch movies, sleep in, make wedding favors, put together the flowers for each table, spend time with all of the animals.... collect and cook the fresh farm eggs, go swimming, play croquet, play horseshoes, ....you really don't have to {and probably won't want to} leave the property!!!
