Carmel Valley’s Premier Wedding Destination

Holman Ranch is elegant and sophisticated, yet charming and cozy. Imagine sipping estate-grown wine in our stunning vineyards, exchanging vows al fresco among the rolling hills, and tasting buttery and sumptuous house-pressed olive oil, all while indulging in the Ranch’s storied, gorgeous grounds.

The focal point of Holman Ranch is its recently restored 1928 Carmel stone hacienda, a magical estate that sits atop a grassy hill, offering breathtaking 360-degree views of the Santa Lucia Mountains. You can stay in the comfort of the most modern accommodations while being surrounded with the distinct feeling of the “original ranch days”.

With a breadth of options, your time at picturesque Holman Ranch should not be limited to just a ceremony. Our beautiful and expansive property has enough gorgeous views and exciting activities to keep you occupied for days.

We only hold one wedding at a time, ensuring an exclusive, intimate getaway for you and your guests.
