Getting your employees out of the office and into a fresh environment may be exactly what they need to recharge their productivity as individuals and as a team. At Kennolyn, we offer the perfect mix of convenient meeting space, delicious gourmet menus, and unique opportunities for free time and dedicated team building. Our Stone Creek Village is a quaint but comprehensive venue that seems to exist independently from the rest of the world, providing a quiet, peaceful space for you to host your weekend meeting. (If you’re planning a day meeting, visit this page for more information about our Hilltop Hacienda venue.)
Don’t miss out on the ropes course built into our towering redwood forest—it’s a great way to build meaningful connection and rapport among members of your team.

Meeting Spaces to Fit Your Needs
When you reserve our Stone Creek venue, the entire village will be available to you. Apart from our expert staff, there will be no one else on site, so your experience will be a dedicated retreat without distractions. We have five different meeting rooms available, so you can choose the space most suitable for your needs or even hold multiple group sessions at once.
Our coordinators are available to discuss your many options for setting up our meeting spaces, depending on the size of your group and the style of your presentations and discussions. We offer both audio/visual equipment (microphone, flat screen TV, DVD player, and projector) and note-taking supplies (white board, flip chart, notepads). For more advanced equipment needs, we’re happy to connect you with our technology partner.
