Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Wikiup was the perfect place for a relaxing, small business retreat. Plenty of rooms, all furnished nicely, and multiple place to sit and meet to mix things up. We had productive meeting that was also laid back, and we enjoyed being able to step away from the office for a while. Nancy sent thorough instructions beforehand that were very helpful over the course of the stay.

There is a a big kitchen dining area, and a pantry that has obviously become stocked with dry goods and spices from previous tenants -- if you plan on cooking, it's worth stopping by the lodge first to see what they have, so that you don't buy something that's already there.

Don't skip the tour --Rancho Wikiup is big enough to be a little confusing at first before you get your bearings straight!

Great place for a large group, unique part of California history

  • 5 of 5

We used this place for a couples' weekend. Tons of space and many unique rooms.

This place also has a unique place in California's history. Be sure to read up on it to learn the historical significance.

Amazing one-of-a-kind place for special gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Wikiup is a fantastic space. Tasteful décor, one-of-a-kind. Original art and handicrafts, board games galore, fast internet. Huge functional kitchen. SO close to sights in Sonoma County. Easy access to groceries, shopping, etc.

We stayed here for a Thanksgiving family reunion for which each guest cooked a dish. The immense kitchen has every conceivable cookware, utensil, tableware, etc. Fully stocked pantry. Extra space to store the turkey, wine & cheese? No problem, with the 2 extra refrigerators. Cook the turkey for many hours without occupying the main kitchen oven? No problem – there's an oven in the extra apartment. Roasting a duck and standing rib? No problem – the large outdoor gas grill was perfectly suited.

Absolute perfect spot for our wedding

  • 5 of 5

The venue could not have been better. The space works really well for doing the ceremony, dinner, and dancing all in one location. It was also great to be able to have up to 15 people stay there.

The place is very well taken care of and it was the best equipped kitchen I've seen. Everyone in the wedding loved this place. It was also very quiet and there was no problem with wind. It felt nice, comfortable and private. Lots of parking. It was good to have the AC when we were there since it was a hot Indian Summer weekend.

The rooms were all great, unique and well decorated.

I highly recommend Rancho Wikiup and we want to come back with a small group and just stay and relax.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 stay for a few days and we had a great time. The house is well equipped for large groups and the indoor and outdoor spaces are overwhelmingly huge. We really enjoyed the large courtyard and hot tub. Would love to stay here again some time and highly recommend.

Wonderful Birthday Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family just spent a near-perfect weekend at Rancho Wikiup. Even when it was raining, there were always fun things to do. Wikiup is perfectly equipped, with toys for kids, a pool table, and a secluded hot tub. The kitchen works well for a big group. Conveniently close are stores and hiking. We held a treasure hunt mostly on the spacious grounds, and it was a blast because three teams could be looking in different places without seeing much of each other. Beds are all comfortable. This is a unique, very special place- it would be hard to find a better sport for a group getaway! We look forward to a future stay at Rancho Wikiup.
