What will make your event truly special? Here at Kennolyn, this consideration matters to us just as much as the menu, layout, and scheduling details. Whether you’re preparing to host a corporate, family, school, or non-profit event, we’re committed to designing your experience in a way that is entirely unique and perfectly suited to your group and intentions.
You’ll have exclusive access to our chic and versatile Hilltop Hacienda Estate with all-inclusive benefits for a virtually effortless event. Because we plan each event from the ground up, we can customize the physical setting, the meal style and menus, and the schedule of activities. In fact, from the time you reserve the space, you’ll have a professional coordinator dedicated to planning all aspects of the event, and optimizing everything on the day of.
A Meal Experience to Suit Your Tastes
Perhaps you already have a meal plan in mind (delicious, locally sourced, plated service in three courses); perhaps you’re open to some of our more adventurous ideas (a grazing buffet with unique stations for fresh, local fare and Asian Fusion or Mediterranean bites). Because we care about what will make your event truly special, we’re happy to cater to special menu requests and dietary restrictions or to design an original menu from scratch.
No Time Wasted with Complicated Packages or Pricing
Our all-inclusive facility package includes an indoor capacity of up to 150 people and an outdoor capacity of 300. All tables, chairs, linens, tableware, and other basic amenities are included, so there’s no need to coordinate any outside rentals. Your costs are straightforward:
Facility Fee + Meal Option + Beverages on Consumption or All-Inclusive Beverage Package
The facility fee varies depending on the day of the week you wish to reserve, but there are no hidden fees. You can also inquire about available discounts based on dates and the type of event.
Our in-house catering service is a rare advantage, and our own executive chef is on hand to design the ideal menu and dining experience for you. Meals are priced per person, plus service fees and sales tax. In our special events guide, you’ll find samples of our creative meal options, such as our Grazing Buffet, plated meal (for up to 150 guests), or family-style BBQ. You can also choose from our wedding menu options if you’re interested in a more formal experience. Beverages are priced per glass unless you’d like one of our all-inclusive beverage packages; we’re happy to discuss those finer details with you.
