Full service retreat facility in the Santa Cruz mountains

300 oxygen-rich acres complete with productive meeting spaces, full-service gourmet meals, and expansive opportunities for recreation and team-building.

Kennolyn operates through the lens of your needs, whether you’re looking for a relaxing experience, a productive one, or a mix of the two. In fact, their event coordinator will begin planning whenever you’re ready and will continue to work with you up through your company event. They make sure you have whatever you need, that everything flows smoothly, and that you’re able to focus on your leadership responsibilities without worrying about behind-the-scenes logistics.

Hilltop Hacienda
With fountains, courtyards, gardens, an expansive lawn, and terraces, it’s a timeless and elegant setting ideal for your next event. Kennolyn coordinators are available to help design your most productive meeting space, and your group will enjoy gourmet meals created by their own executive chef.

Stone Creek Village
In the coastal redwoods, Stone Creek Village casts its quaint spell, perfect for any overnight event. Cabin cottages line the pathways that lead guests to the Lodge for dinner or to one of the many recreational amenities. The Stone Creek Village venue is perfect for corporate events and large organization retreats. The facility includes tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts; a putting green; and an outdoor amphitheater and play field, and Kennolyn is proud to offer a rock climbing wall and ropes course high in the redwood trees by professional facilitators. It’s an unforgettable option for exhilarating team-building activities.

Host Details: Kennolyn began hosting weddings, special events, and retreats in 1995, but it has been the site of world-renowned summer camp programs since 1946. It had long been a dream of Max and Marion Caldwell to open a school or camp for kids, and when Max returned home after the Second World War, they did—on a tranquil property in the Santa Cruz Mountains. They named Kennolyn after their children Ken and Carolyn, who were 5 and 3 years old when Kennolyn welcomed its first campers. Now the business is run by their grand-daughter Pam Caldwell Nootbaar, carrying on the family tradition.
