Amenities Bridal Suite/Changing Rooms Onsite Wifi Ample Parking Onsite Onsite Restrooms Other Venue Features The Scene: A stunning 30-acre ranch short term rental and event space situated atop the rolling hills just 10 min east of downtown Paso Robles. Surrounded by award-winning wineries, picturesque sunsets, hundreds of moss-covered oaks, hiking trails, swimming pools, a tennis court, outdoor kitchen, pergolas, banquet table for 50+, & panoramic views of rolling hills & vineyards as far as the eye can see. The Windwood Ranch sits on an oak covered plateau above the award-winning wine country of Paso Robles, CA. The 30-acre property boasts incredible sunset views from innumerable vantage points. For over a century the land was known as the Dresser Ranch, owned by one of the early pioneers of San Luis Obispo County. To the West is the Santa Lucia Range, and just beyond the famous Hearst Castle, Big Sur, and the Pacific Ocean. Tom Petty spent the night on the ranch in 1986 after headlining and closing out the Mid State Fair with living legend Bob Dylan. Design: The Windwood Ranch owners recently remodeled and re-designed every space on the property. The mid-century Ranch House has gorgeous reclaimed barn wood floors laid in a chevron pattern. There's marble countertops, vintage fireplaces, and designer touches everywhere you look. Each of the vintage campers have been refurbished and designed with classic rock stars in mind. Because famous musicians like Tom Petty and Bob Dylan have stayed on the ranch, many of the design features are a nod to the classic rock stars of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Standout Venue Features: Guests of the Windwood Ranch rave about our redesigned barn, with its views, oversized Edison bulbs strung on rope lights, and an epic chandelier that was salvaged from a South Beach mansion. Every aspect of the ranch is extremely photogenic, from the rolling hills, vineyard views, sunset pergola with sweeping vistas of the coastal range, to the painted tipis, shiny vintage campers, and our rustic chic vibe. Extra Perks: Our venue comes equipped with multiple outdoor tables, pergolas, and spaces that are perfect for large groups. For those who wish to stretch out their event and stay, we have pools, a tennis court, outdoor games, and more. Awards & Notables
