About Us


wedding venues at Kennolyn

A gem hidden in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Kennolyn is perfectly poised to be an ideal spot for your special event. Our beautiful 300 acres house two private venues customizable for weddings, retreats, meetings, reunions, fundraisers…  any event you have on the horizon.

The Santa Cruz Mountains hug California’s central coast and bring together redwood forests, ocean views, and vibrant plants and wildlife. Here, at Kennolyn, we feel peacefully secluded, yet we’re just an hour from the San Francisco Bay Area and minutes from historic Highway 1.

Our Hilltop Hacienda Estate overlooks the Monterey Bay from our mountaintop hideaway. This venue is incredibly unique, with Spanish-style architecture, fountains, courtyards, an expansive lawn, and terraces that overlook the ocean. Our well-loved gardens and lush redwood forest backdrop offer radiant natural decoration, while you can also plan your event nestled into the trees in our wild but welcoming natural setting. This venue is a blank canvas until we start to bring your vision to life for a wedding, family party, corporate meeting, non-profit event, or other occasion you want to be truly special and memorable.


Our Rustic Overnight Venue

The Stone Creek Village is no less than an all-inclusive mountain getaway for your group to stay and relax and sink into its cozy timelessness. While reveling in that sense of escape, you’ll discover many diverse activities surrounding you: swimming, hiking, volleyball, basketball, rock wall climbing, putting, ping-pong, and roasting s’mores around a campfire are just the short list. Free your imagination as you envision a destination wedding weekend, family reunion, wellness retreat, company retreat, or any other immersive occasion you can think of.
