Built in 1905, Dawn Guest Ranch is a fifteen acre property nestled among towering redwoods on the banks of the Russian River. The rustic cabins and cottages blend harmoniously into the stunning landscape of ancient apple orchards, bamboo groves, grassy meadows and a kitchen garden. The long meadow at Dawn Ranch has been the setting for Food & Wine Affairs, Sonoma Pride, music concerts, weddings, corporate games, even an occasional football game, or just to play ball with the dog. The apple orchard planted in the late 1800’s is a spectacular setting for weddings, private parties, or to just sit and read your favorite book.

The restaurant at Dawn Ranch, Agriculture Public House, truly brings the Farm to your table. Serving local craft beer, Russian River Wines, and small batch spirits. Dawn Ranch has private river access, a pool, and wireless internet access. There are no phones or televisions in rooms in case you would like to unplug for a week or two. So leave your problems behind and join us for a party, a wedding, family reunion, corporate retreat, or just some peace and solitude. Don’t forget the dog and a good book, we will supply the rest.
