Not only is Holman Ranch one of the most historic estates in Carmel Valley, it’s also one of the most picturesque. And unlike most properties in the area, which sit close to sea level, Holman Ranch’s spacious property starts at 500 feet and extends to over 2000 feet in elevation. This breadth of land allows for some truly memorable views and plenty of space to engage in a variety of activities, including hiking, ATV vineyard tours, skeet shooting, and more.
Holman Ranch is a 400 acre private estate. We only hold one event at a time. And guest rooms are only available to event hosts. This means that each host has exclusive access to our extensive property and all guest rooms during their time with us.
Holman Ranch has an extensive selection of areas for events of all shapes and sizes. With our Main Plaza, Rose Patio, Ceremony Lawn, Stone Terrace, Wine Cave, Carriage House, and Upper Vineyard, we have the perfect space for any party. We understand that properly filling a space can make a major difference. We’ve held retreats and parties for groups as small as 2 and as large as 500.
We have 18 acres of beautiful, sloping vineyards. And our state of the art wine cave allows for an incredible wine tasting experience or venue for appetizers and seated dinners. If you don’t love wine, the peaceful environment that the vines create are sure to satisfy. Simply walking about the property brings a sense of calm. Plus, unlike many wineries, guests are permitted to serve whatever alcohol they prefer at events. At Holman Ranch, we want our guests to create memories that will last a lifetime.
At Holman Ranch, the focus is usually on the scenic 400 acre property. However, we also have excellent indoor spaces, suited for a wide variety of purposes.
Our Game Room is the perfect place to hang out with friends. Complete with bar, kitchen, pool table, dartboard, flat-screen TVs, and plenty of comfortable places to sit, this room has everything you need for a good time.
The ultimate in upscale tranquility, our fully restored Hacienda is the most historic spot on the property. Originally built in 1928, this fully-restored space has housed numerous Hollywood legends, from Charlie Chaplin to Clark Gable. Original Carmel Stone keeps it at the perfect temperature year-round.
We have 14 beautiful guest rooms, reserved exclusively for those who have booked the ranch. Ten of these rooms sit in the outer courtyard and are outfitted with high-speed internet and flat-screen TVs. Three more rooms are attached to our historic Carmel Stone Hacienda. Finally, our full-scale, luxury residence comes complete with bedroom, kitchen, living room, dining room, wine cellar, and wrap-around deck.
