Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley Ca

After spending a couple of nights in Carmel by the Sea, we headed inland to Carmel Valley to stay at Holman Ranch. This private estate has amazing grounds and facilities with a rich history that you can use for weddings, special events, family gatherings, or corporate retreats. Established in 1928, the ranch has had different iterations and focuses, but anyone who visits can’t deny how amazing the view is of the mountains and valley around you.

We stayed in the overnight guest rooms, which, with their rustic decor, really set the mood for a getaway at a ranch. Just steps away from the guest rooms is a beautiful Spanish Hacienda main house. The detail in the decor and amazing architecture show how much care went into the designs and restoration of the home.

Afterward, we got a tour of the estate. It has 21 acres of vineyards and has only been making wine for about 24 years! The vineyards are all certified organic and sustainable and make their wine responsibly.

When we first laid eyes on Holman Ranch, we already imagined all the beautiful wedding photos that could be taken here. It’s a shame we didn’t know about it before we got married. We couldn’t resist taking some of our own tripod shots!
