Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Venture is close to the beach, trails, parks, marsh, bird watching, farms, great food and restaurants. You will love the beautiful setting along the creek, the big hot tub & pool, the coziness and the views. It's a pleasure to cook in the kitchen on the big 10 burner gas stove, griddle and double oven. It's great for family gatherings, classes, workshops, weddings, team building, business and school retreats.

What an incredible and charming space! The hot tub, pool, and kitchen easily accommodated everyone in our 16 person group. The beds were comfortable and numerous--it's so hard to find a place where everyone can get their own bed. I would highly recommend this spot to everyone.

The Venture Retreat Center is a special place! Tucked away into the forests of Pescadero it is in a great location; close to the beach yet very private. We hosted a weekend event with approx 30 people and there was more than enough space for all of us to enjoy the pool, the lawn,…
