The Santa Lucia Preserve is a community dedicated to appreciating and respecting the natural beauty of The Preserve and its geographical, historical and cultural setting. Located minutes from downtown Carmel, this is where wilderness, community and culture converge, creating an idyllic place suited for ranch living with ocean views.
Gather in a historic Hacienda with a history dating back to the Roaring Twenties. Exchange sacred vows in a cathedral of redwoods, dating back even further. Revel in a bucolic setting shared with deer, turkeys, bobcats and golden eagles. Savor farm to table fare and exquisite California wines. Post-nuptials celebrate with your wedding guests in the 100-year old barn, where rustic elegance melds the past with the present. Explore epic California scenery on foot or horseback.
At night, become enraptured by the mountain air in your own cozy, rustic-glam camp near Moore’s Lake, or the honeymoon suite in the Hacienda.
