Oceanpoint Ranch, Cambria, CA
The beauty of the Central Coast is captured in this little corner of Cambria, where a rolling green lawn and direct access to Moonstone Beach offer excellent options for a wedding ceremony. Formerly known as San Simeon Pines, the property was completely renovated and reopened as Oceanpoint Ranch, a delightful ranch-chic getaway. The grounds are lovely and the rooms spacious, with cabin-like accommodations complete with fireplaces, animal-print rugs, leather finishes, claw-foot tubs, and wood-beamed ceilings. The newly installed restaurant – a rustic charmer with excellent food – offers breakfast and dinner on-site or to-go. The pool is heated year-round, and lawn games are offered during the day while fire pits invite relaxing and s’more-making at night.
Part of the charm of this boutique property is its intimate beach location and seclusion from the hustle and bustle of the city. The drive is quaint, the weather beautiful, and the setting romantic. Hearst Castle is but a 10-minute drive away and offers a variety of fascinating tours, an interesting outing for couples that wish to venture outside the property without feeling taxed or committed to long bouts of site-seeing. Wine-tasting in the area abounds – the Pacific Coast Wine Trail begins nearby – while picnicking on the beach beckons.
Ceremony options include the Moonstone Corral, which features a gazebo and water tower; the Sundance Lawn, which features treeline, hillside, and ocean views; Leffingwell Creek, which offers a picturesque footbridge; and Stargazer Meadow, a private, natural setting. An on-site event planner is available to help coordinate events, and midweek rates are particularly attractive.
Leffingwell Creek offers a footbridge for your entrance to your on-site ceremony.
