HAWKWOOD ESTATE CORPORATE EVENT VENUE & CELEBRATION SPACE


Hawkwood Estate is a place to Relax






Hawkwood’s big sky and rolling hills provide a backdrop of tranquil beauty, an idyllic setting for private events. We host corporate day trips, overnight executive retreats, and festive gatherings – birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and weddings. Gather at the Milk House Terrace or at our small scenic lake; stroll five miles of trails or invigorate with yoga, road and mountain biking, archery, and hiking; eat drink and be merry with world class Sonoma wines and cuisine. We welcome you and yours to our oasis.

Day corporate events

Create a positive shared experience for your team with a day at Hawkwood. Groups of 10-200 visit us for a change of scenery, serious team work, and pure fun. Hawkwood’s unique Sonoma location allows for a variety of local artisan tastings.

Overnight executive retreats

Spend 1-3 days lodged in our fully catered, executive quality safari yurts. Utilize our board room and our extensive activities and amenities menu to host 5-20 staff, clients, and leadership.

Private parties

Choose from our many vistas, lawns, and gardens to create the perfect setting for your gathering. Entertain your guests with Hawkwood’s bounty of natural and organized activities, while sampling your choice of Sonoma’s finest artisanal cuisine.

Weddings

Wed surrounded by golden fields and soaring skies, beneath an alter of oaks, at our intimate lakeside arbor, or in the garden of your choice. Celebrate into the night with elegant dining and starlit dancing.

Hawkwood Connect

The Hawkwood Connect cohort meets once monthly to refresh and relate at southern Sonoma’s premier corporate retreat. The day is spent working – and networking – alongside a vetted group of peers who share a desire to spend the day stretching their minds, bodies, and professional connections outside of the office. Attendees represent professionals across industry sectors, and are invited to join the cohort following the application and interview process. Participation at each monthly event includes full access to the Hawkwood Estate and activities, freshly baked light breakfast, artisan Sonoma lunch, and cocktail hour canapes with open bar.

Hawkwood Estate is a place to

Corporate


Out of the office and surrounded by nature, a retreat at Hawkwood provides the space for creative thinking and the opportunity to know colleagues in a different and productive way. Meet formally for training in the morning, then break for lunch and an afternoon of team-building or simply a quiet walk among oak trees. Plan a full day of activities to bring your company together, or host an annual meeting, client appreciation outing, or company holiday party. Hawkwood’s ample indoor and outdoor meeting space allows for weather contingencies.

Best of Sonoma


We partner with an excellent group of caterers who offer menus from simple barbecues to extravagant multi-course meals. Hawkwood’s unique Sonoma location allows for a variety of local artisan tastings: Sonoma County wines, hand-crafted breads, renowned cheeses and specialty local olive oil. Come and enjoy the fruits of the artisanal food revolution: get away to the scenic countryside for a rustic yet elegant meal of fresh local produce and organic meats paired with highly regarded Petaluma Gap and other Sonoma County wines. Choose to dine on a rustic hillside overlooking the pond or plan a perfect garden meal.

Celebrations


Over the years Hawkwood has been chosen by friends and family for their celebrations— all of which were beautiful, combining nature and flowers and golden fields with great food and dancing. Recently we decided that we would open Hawkwood for a small number of weddings during the “season” between May and October. Choose to celebrate an intimate small wedding by the pond arbor; the beautiful Milk House Garden with its natural altar under the trees and the Main Garden are ideal for larger celebrations.

Our first choice is always to source locally


Stubbs Wine: Great Organic Pinots   ||   Achadinha Cheese: Amazing cheese from right next door   ||   Open Field Farms: Our neighbors to the north

Sonoma Event Venue

“As a planner who works at venues all over the Bay Area, I have to say that Hawkwood was exceptional in overall experience not only for my clients but also for me as the coordinator. I would absolutely recommend this venue for anyone seeking a beautiful ranch setting (with possible horse sightings!) and a kind, professional, helpful staff to work with them in the process. Local accommodations aren’t too far away, but it still feels intimate, romantic, and secluded. Planning at Hawkwood was smooth from start to finish, and I would highly recommend you consider it for your next event!”
