Chalk Ranch

Executive Retreats & Corporate Off-Sites


Chalk Ranch is a Coastal Mountain Retreat that helps people foster and nurture relationships.  We offer two types of venues to achieve this goal.

The Executive Retreat offering is designed to host senior executives and other leaders in their respective fields who desire an overnight venue.  The lodge’s spacious floor plan, allowing several conference and dining options, the finest mountain home craftsmanship, five star resort amenities, and a relaxing, intimate ambiance is the perfect setting for building or renewing relationships with colleagues, customers, partners and peers.

Client’s typically use the Ranch for:

>  Executive meetings.

>  Board meetings.
>  Transaction celebrations like IPOs/M&A.
>  Personal time to unwind, contemplate the future.

In a recent Forbes article titled “A Corporate Retreat Survival Kit”, award-winning journalist Deborah Jacobs noted that “my fantasy retreat involves a cup of coffee and a bunch of comfy couches in front of a fireplace where my colleagues and I can have a meaningful discussion.  I promise you, I will come to know them better”.  This is an example of what Chalk Ranch is all about.

The Corporate Off-Site offering is designed to achieve the same objective but in an activity-rich team building environment. This offering typically is a gathering of corporate teams for the day and is focused outside on the ranch’s 50 acres, but with use of certain parts of the lodge.  For day events with presentations or dining, the deck and terraces can accommodate a larger number of people.

Whichever best suits your needs, or some combination of both, you’ll enjoy the ranch’s unique, secluded location.

Nestled at the base of the Santa Cruz Chalk Mountains, overlooking An᷉o Nuevo Island and the Pacific Ocean, the Ranch is located along a strip of California’s most pristine coastline.  Clear star-studded night skies, sunny days, fresh air, magnificent sunsets, and beautiful vistas are noteworthy in this area.

The Ranch is centrally located in the Bay Area- San Francisco, Pebble Beach, the entire Peninsula and both airports are all within a 45 mile radius.  Outside the urban areas travel to the Ranch is scenic and stress free.

Whether enjoying the warmth of a roaring fire, refreshing hikes in the surrounding area, a game of bocce, or lounging on the deck, the Ranch offers a wealth of ways for people to connect.

As one of our recent corporate clients- the leadership of a prominent Silicon Valley technology company-noted:

 ” We hosted a corporate retreat at this absolutely stunning property, and the feedback from our
executives couldn’t have been better. The home itself feels both luxurious and homey, the views are not to be
beat, and amenities made everyone feel like they were being treated to something quite special. There was
plenty of space for board-room style meetings, and the well-appointed kitchen
made cooking meals together a fun bonding experience.

We would love to come back for our next retreat ” – Samantha L.

If you are looking for a secluded, private venue in which to meaningfully engage with others, the Ranch offers an unparalleled opportunity to reach that goal.
