About

The Waterfall Lodge and Retreat, sitting high in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, is a tranquil wedding venue for couples from Ben Lomond, CA. Surrounded by ancient redwood trees, this venue embraces its unique position in nature. The barn is made of reclaimed wood from a 19th-century farm building, with romantic lanterns casting a glow over the couple’s celebration. Sunshine slants through the leaves of the forest, lighting the way to an unforgettable day.

Waterfall Lodge & Retreat features warm wood throughout and a gorgeous patio made of travertine stone where guests can immerse themselves in the forest surrounding them. Doors, windows, and gates are laced with delicate wrought-iron ornamentation for an elegant, classic touch. Couples and their loved ones can enjoy a getaway in the majestic beauty of the forests, and take deep breaths of the fresh mountain air. With incredible views of the countryside and towering redwoods, couples have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for truly spectacular wedding photos. A beautiful space for rustic celebrations, its secluded location enhances a feeling of community among its visitors. The day after the wedding, guests can explore the various nature trails through the mountains, and go for a rejuvenating hike in the beautiful countryside.

Couples can say their vows outdoors in one of Waterfall Lodge and Retreat’s various ceremony venues. The ceremony and reception areas, can fit up to 150 guests. Tables and chairs are artfully arranged on the patio, allowing guests to relax beneath a sky of sparkling market lights. When they are worn out from celebrating, this estate features a number of spaces for overnight accommodations. The lodge itself has two large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Thirty-three cabins are nestled around the property and are just a short walk from the lodge and can accommodate up to 96 overnight guests onsite.

    Our DREAM Wedding!

    Waterfall Lodge is the most BEAUTIFUL place to be immersed in nature and to celebrate such a special ceremony as getting married. You can just tell everyone who is involved with caring for the venue — Michael, Beccan, Mark—absolutely love this land, these trees, and this venue. Michael especially helped us so much in welcoming us to the venue for our site visit, showing us around, recommending vendors, and giving advice on the best ways to utilize the venue to its fullest potential. We felt so cared for throughout the planning process and especially on the weekend of as they were all onsite to help everything run smoothly. Our loved ones/guests could not stop complimenting the venue and were absolutely amazed at how majestic and at the same time intimate it was to be staying there all together throughout the weekend. It was literally our DREAM wedding. Waterfall Lodge will always have such a special and warm place in our hearts!

    We knew before we even saw it!

    My husband and I knew that we wanted to get married at Waterfall before we had even seen it in-person. We senggat toured other venues and Waterfall was our last one. The moment we saw it, we just knew and are so glad we did! The lodge in and of itself would have sold us on the property but the added perk of staying on the property in A-frame cabins and being in the middle of the redwoods was a dream. Between the ceremony and reception, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting. The staff was knowledgeable and we appreciated the site visits we had with Michael with his expertise and advice on how to make our wedding day as smooth as possible. Waterfall allowed us to bring in our own vendors but also provided us with a preferred list. Our only complaint would be the sound ordinances in Santa Cruz, we didn’t want the night to end! But the day was perfect and we will just have to fawn oper the photos for years to come. We are so happy we were able to secure Waterfall as our venue and you should too!

    Most gorgeous venue on earth

    Waterfall Lodge is one of the most gorgeous venues I have ever seen. The entire property is pristinely maintained and they are constantly doing updates to keep the property, spaces, and cabins to continually make it even more beautiful. Working with Jaime, Mark, and Michael was a great experience and they are so professional, organized, and accommodating and helpful that it made the experience THAT much better… because not only is the venue beautiful – but so is all of the staff. We absolutely loved having the cabins available onsite and our guests were so pleased with not needing to drive anywhere and being at the property the whole time. We sempadan many guests tell us how much they loved being able to meet people before the actual wedding by staying onsite in the cabins – it made for such a good experience for everyone. The cabins themselves are also very cute; and are very clean and have towels, toiletries, etc. And let me tell you what a gorgeous backdrop a forest of redwoods makes for your wedding ceremony. There was also so many great places for photos – and Waterfall just makes pictures look that much better. I don’t even think it needs to be said that Waterfall is a venue I highly recommend – as it just speaks for itself.
