Triple S Ranch Napa was once part of an original Mexican Land Grant for thousands of acres. When owner Derek Webb purchased the property, he renovated this beautiful property into an spectacular destination wedding spot for couples all over the world.

Triple S Ranch Napa is located 3 miles west of historic Calistoga, in the Napa Valley. It is 12 acres of completely private and serene vistas and offers expansive views, open spaces, a grove of mature walnut trees, massive Redwoods, Sequoias, Oaks, Douglas Firs, & (our favorite!) fig trees.

On the property there is an original 1867 Grand Victorian house, one of the oldest in the Napa Valley. It is 2,400 square feet and is conjoined by two buildings, to make one large house. The oldest section was built in 1854 and the newest section, known as, “high Victorian”, was built in 1869.

Highlights of the Grand Victorian include

  • Large rooms
  • High ceilings
  • Intricate details
  • Fully decorated with Victorian pieces
  • A library filled with hundreds of books
  • The house is surrounded with gardens and beautiful vistas

Christine + Eddie Wedding

There are also 10 cottages, perfect for families and wedding guests. Many families come from all over California to stay at Triple S Ranch Napa to horseback ride, swim, hike, eat and relax.

  • 25′ ceilings with exposed beams
  • Massive French doors from Argentina

There is a massive 175 year old Black Walnut tree with a 50 diameter canopy. The tree offers an idyllic gathering spot under the cool shade canopy with spectacular views pf the mountains to the west and the setting sun.

Triple S Ranch Napa is a charming and rustic venue that will make your wedding a memorable event that you and your guest will be taking about for years to come.
