Stepladder Ranch & Creamery is conveniently located just fifteen minutes from downtown Cambria, just off scenic Highway 1, just south of Big Sur. This property offers a serene getaway on our 750-acre ranch and avocado farm with hiking trails, spectacular mountain views and accommodations for up to twenty-four guests.

Booking your event at Stepladder includes various sites for all aspects of your special day including an outdoor ceremony site with ocean views, an indoor renovated Quonset Hut, and a picturesque outdoor gathering area. The venue includes accommodations for two nights so you can soak up the intimate ranch setting with those closest to you for your weekend of celebrations.

Due to our rural location and the logistics of our property, our max capacity for events is 100 guests. We do not offer an all-inclusive package price, so the venue pricing outlined below does not include the required cost of shuttles, vendors, catering or any rentals (tables/chairs) for your event.

Our Stepladder Ranch Package Pricing is $7500 + $1000 refundable damage deposit. Package Pricing INCLUDES 2 nights accommodations for up to 24 guests (Friday 3pm check-in through Sunday 11am check-out) in the Vista and Big House - each additional night is only $1000/night for both homes!

Includes indoor renovated Quonset Hut for reception, outdoor ceremony site with ocean views and three portable toilets with lights and sinks, delivered on the day of your event at the ceremony site and reception area.

See Why We Have 5 Stars

"Our only regret was not booking our stay for longer!! What an unforgettable weekend spending it with family and friends in the most memorable place. Our wedding guests were in awe of the surrounding beauty. Stepladder was so worth the trek to get up there and we felt so lucky to even get to experience this rare piece of well manicured property. It is truly a gift that Stepladder has opened up their gates for couples wanting to find a venue that is off the beaten path. Jill the venue coordinator was so fun & easy to work with. She really made the whole experience enjoyable and as stress free as possible. What a treat getting to have her to refer any questions to and she would answer with a smile every time! You must see this venue to get the real idea of what it feels like to be up there in the privacy of nature all around. We loved sharing it with our closest family & friends for our intimate special day. Book for late spring early summer and you get to be apart of the baby goat season during your time there! Get ready to be blown away, Stepladder has the best venue for that adventurous couple in mind."
