Ranch House Lawns Event Packages
Rincon Creek Ranch is blessed with several expansive lawn areas adjacent to the main Ranch House. The expansive West Lawn has ample room for rows of audience chairs for ceremonies at one end, while still having plenty of room at the other end for a reception party set-up. The West Lawn is flanked with mature mesquite trees equipped with power outlets and trimmed with “fairy” lights. Sixty foot pine trees located at one end separate the adjacent 10'x20' concrete apron suitable for DJ's and bands, and the stone walls of the enclosed BBQ area with its traditional “Santa Maria” grill and concrete table that seats twenty-four. Our eight foot tall arched iron arbor is the perfect backdrop for the bride, groom, and officiant, and although heavy, it can be located anywhere on any of the Ranch House Lawns. The North Lawn is located immediately adjacent to the west lawn and is also flanked by mature mesquite trees equipped with power outlets and trimmed with “fairy” lights, and the sixty foot pines. An adjacent 24'x40' dance floor is lit with 100 dimmable, vintage style, suspended lights, and two dimmable iron chandeliers. The Front Lawn has a winding brick walkway with shepherd hook ground lights. A perfect ceremony arrangement is created with the arbor located at the end, and rows of audience chairs set up on the lawn on each side of the walkway.

This package is offered on an extremely limited basis. RCR is first and foremost, a Lodging Business, and the pleasure of our lodging guests is our primary concern. Guests have the freedom to roam and relax over our entire property. We have found that events that are large (approx. 50 people and more), or run into the evening (later than 6:00 PM), are just not compatible with individual guests on vacation. Accordingly, the only event packages suitable for these events are the Diamond Package which includes the two-night rental of all of the guest casitas along with the RCR venue areas, or this package, the Fiesta Package, which is only offered off-season (from approximately June 15th through August 15th), and only if RCR is available, and only if no other reservations are booked or expected. Reservations for the Fiesta Package will not be considered until April 1st preceding the planned event.
This package is designed for events lasting five hours, having up to 125 attendees, that ends in the late evening (10:00PM), provides alcohol, serves catered food, and has a DJ or band. The package includes the Ranch House Lawn location of your choice, the arbor, two powder rooms within the Ranch House, and porches. Price $5,500.00. Additional time may be added at $175.00 per hour subject to availability (Limited, No fractional hours). Lifetime Table with eight chairs are available for $50/set up to a maximum of seven sets. Larger events must rent their own furnishings.
Our most elaborate wedding or event package. The Diamond package includes the two-day rental of all of the guest casitas: three two bedroom units (sleeping four people each, or twelve total), and four one bedroom units (sleeping two people each, or eight total) accommodating twenty people.

Perimeter lighting from 1000's of fairy lights on the surrounding trees, and the positioning of the eight foot arched Arbor anywhere on the Ranch House Lawns is included. This package is suitable for up to 125 attendees.

If any non-registered guests are attending the secondary event, and alcohol is served, a professional, insured, bartending service must be employed. If the number of guests requires an alternate furnishing set-up from the LBH base furnishings, additional charges will apply.
