Venue Setting

Unparalleled grandeur greets you from the moment you enter the rose-covered gates, and continues as you begin the nearly 1/2 mile tree-lined drive. The 120 year-old Bride's Stone Cottage is a romantic haven as you get ready for your special day. The Groom's Saloon is truly one-of-a-kind complete with a bar, shuffle board and plenty of authentic western decor. The Mountain Vista overlooks the entire Santa Ynez Valley and Mountain Range which is ideal for bridal portraits.

Venue Features
The Scene:
You may choose to have cocktails in The Park followed by dinner under a canopy of stars and sycamore trees...which is Sycamore Lane. If a barn atmosphere is more your dining style, there's that as well! Dancing can be adjacent to any dining environment. The Ranch is less than a 1/2 mile from Solvang, which is a charming Danish town with plenty of accommodation options, restaurants shopping and activities. All food, beverage, restrooms , etc., must be brought in to the Ranch - however I'm very happy to recommend full-service caterers and coordinators who'll be able to take care of all these details for you.
Design:
Whispering Rose Ranch is one of the most elegant ranch estates in the world...with over 100 horses on over 80 acres, a race track, multiple barns and a pond, you and your guests will experience a truly romantic setting.
