I welcome you to the most beautiful Ranch in California. Feel free to discover it on your own, or I'd love to provide you with complementary tours of it - at your convenience. But also feel free to relax and just stay by the guest houses admiring the breathtaking views. I am the General Manager of this ranch and live in the Caretaker cottage... close enough to help in every way... but you will rarely see me unless you call. I give groups all the privacy they need. My service is reflected in our Yelp reviews. Please don't ever hesitate to call on me if I can help in anyway during your stay.

Sam Torres purchased this estate in 1962

This ranch will feel like 'Yours' - you will be the only guests here. You will have exclusivity to the houses and grounds.

There is a lot of History here on this Ranch too. A wealthy business man built these houses in 1938. Mr. Hedgepeth invented and sold tools to Sears and Roebuck in Chicago.

Our Cattle Rancher - was born on this ranch 80 years ago - and his father managed the several hundred head of cattle before him. This is a 'working ranch'.

Discover the many peaks, valleys and rivers. Picnic spots abound. The Vineyard, or at the largest Redwood tree in Sonoma County. The 20 acre lake is spring fed... so it is very clear. We recently built a dock/pier... its a great place to swim. Feel free to bring your mountain bike too - there are miles and miles of trails.

OCTOBER OUTDOOR WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
I hosted my wedding at Anvil in October 2013. We picked Anvil because we wanted the freedom to create our own unique occasion, and the flexibility to stay somewhere longer with out of town guests. Anvil was perfect for us!

The property is absolutely beautiful, and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We rented the entire property from Tuesday through Sunday for a Saturday afternoon wedding. As friends and family arrived in town, they joined us on the ranch for what turned into a week-long family reunion. All of my cousins shared the carriage house, which was a perfect spot for a big family! We stayed in the main house as did all of our parents, where we enjoyed beautiful views of the mountains.

All of our bridesmaids and groomsmen arrived mid-week. We got to spend several days together -- including a chilly swim in the lake (one of my favorite memories from the week)! I also loved just gathering in the main house kitchen and dining room for breakfast or lunch... just spending time together. We had a beautiful pizza dinner in the vineyard. We went for hikes and even shot skeet.

The Circle of Nature was a perfect place for the ceremony itself. Absolutely stunning views, to which very little decoration need be added. We used live strings players for music, and did hook up a sound system for our officiant and ourselves. We had about 140 guests, and we all fit very comfortably.

Sam & Shannon took amazing care of us. They worked so hard all week to ensure we had what we needed. They went way above and beyond the day of the ceremony to make sure everything was set up and good to go. Sam even brought in a friend to help us when we needed more hands for set-up and take down.

Anvil was such a great experience for us. My family and friends still thank me for a week they have called "so special, memorable, really a once in a lifetime experience."

Thank you Sam, Shannon, and Princess! We loved every minute.

UNIQUE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We found Anvil Ranch through a simple yelp search. My husband and I were looking for a remote and private location to belatedly celebrate our wedding. We wanted to be able to have friends and family stay on site, and be able to incorporate a lot of eating and outdoor activities into our weekend.

Anvil checked all the boxes. It's such a unique location, offering amazing views and an incredible amount of privacy. The staff who live on site (Sam, his lovely wife Shannon, and Jesus, the vineyard manager) are exceptionally friendly and were all super helpful, going above and beyond to help us pull off a packed weekend of festivities.

While it took a bit of extra planning to get caterers, rental supplies, and other vendors out to this remote location, there's no doubt we managed to have a very unique and memorable weekend. The wonderful emails from our friends and family about what a special weekend it was just have not stopped coming.

Thank you, Sam, for helping to make the weekend so special for us!

GREAT FOR A CHURCH MEN'S GROUP RETREAT

Great for a Church men's group retreat
  • 5 of 5
Patrick - I've been researching different finished campgrounds for locations for our upcoming Church men's group in Petaluma. I really like all the features at Anvil, and see how we can use it for a variety of small and large sessions, plus many fun activities and contests. I can see how your background at Hyatt carries over to this rustic retreat.

BEAUTIFUL JUNE WEDDING OF CLOSE FAMILY AND FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
I just attended my sister's wedding at Anvil Ranch with my two small kids, and it is WONDERFUL! The bride and groom's family and close friends all had the opportunity to stay on the property, creating a "family reunion" type environment for the newly formed extended family.

The house is cozy and complete with all amenities and the Circle of Nature is a breathtaking place to have a ceremony. You are surrounded by nothing but nature -- including wild pigs, quail, turkey vultures and fox! It is truly a unique and beautiful place, and you can tell the care and love Patrick has dedicated to creating this environment for you

All of this, so close to San Francisco. Healdsburg is about an hour away, and my sister had her hair done in town at Gabrielle's. We also got our flowers from the local Farmers Market, and cakes from Downtown Bakery.

I'm recommending to the newlyweds that we have a reunion here for their anniversary every year :-)
