What an overpriced, inflexible, pretentious, and poorly updated venue! For what you get, the prices are ridiculously inflated, especially for the area. Very few local people could ever afford to use this facility, which is ridiculous as it is tied to local culture and many locals support the restaurants on the Resort. If you do not have $20-30,000 to drop on a wedding or at least 100 guests, the place has literally no options for you, and will not work with you for less than $15,000. I hate places that claim to be hidden local gems but offer no flexibility for those who do not have a large guest list or budget, and the fact that if you use the word "wedding" businesses will gauge wealthy, out of town customers with ridiculous prices. It is discriminating and pompous, given the history of this place as a ranch in an area where simple (not wealthy) people have lived for over a century. I have lived in this area all my life, and although the food from the restaurant is tasty (although often takes forever to be served) and the grounds are beautiful, the Resort puts on airs and acts much fancier than it's not-updated buildings and employees actually are. It is sad when money and catering to the wealthy becomes the bottom line instead of being a presence that gives back to its own community. I have been to half a dozen events at this location and would love to consider it for my sister's wedding, but the staff is exceptionally unhelpful and rude if you do not have a large amount of money to drop. This is not L.A., and local people should have options for a small, affordable event in a nearby lovely location. The pricing tier should allow an affordable, simple option for 20-50 people (a small wedding) without a base price over $5000 for just using the location. If you are looking to do a simple, budget friendly event in a beautiful outdoor setting, I'm afraid you are not wanted here.

My husband and I just had our wedding at highland springs resort on September 27,2015. I cannot emphasize how amazing this venue was. All of my guests were raving about how beautiful the grounds were and how delicious the food was! It is truly a photographer's dream come true- olive groves, lavender fields, evergreen trees, oak trees, cacti... A truly magical place to get married. My wedding coordinator was Tina, who helped coordinate the entire wedding. Not only was she professional, she was warm, kind, super helpful, and a genuine human being. She was very accommodating, flexible, and helped my wedding become a dream come true. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't hesitate at all..highland springs resort is the best venue and I am eternally grateful to have found this gem of a place. You will not regret having your wedding here!

Sharon is so flexible and easy to work with. The whole team was organized and efficient on my wedding day. During our meetings Sharon was super helpful. HSR really works with you and your vision. Anything we needed they were able to help us with. They even provided a cold room for us to arrange our flowers the night before and even provided some fridge space for our cupcakes we baked ourselves and flowers we arranged ourselves.

Our first meeting HSR was being redone and by our wedding it was already redone and even more beautiful. The DJ they provide was so awesome and so nice.

They have a prop storage area where you can pick out props you want to use. They have SO much stuff! That really helped us save a lot of money on decorations. They even had a new pergola built recently. It was really beautiful. They had a chandelier they hung from the pergola and it really made my rustic wedding have a touch of elegance and luxury.

They have so much land. There were a lot of different areas we could choose from to take pictures.

We also wanted an all vegan menu and they were able to provide such a healthy and delicious meal. GIANT artichokes. They provided so much for us. I give them a 10!!!

We just got married at Highland Springs Resort on September 6th and loved it! We had a small wedding with all of my fiancees family having to fly in from out of state. They all stayed at the resort and loved it! After choosing Highland Springs Resort as our wedding venue, Sharon was assigned to be our wedding coordinator. She was so accommodating to all of my needs. I was planning everything from out of state, but Sharon did an amazing job making sure all of my questions and concerns were taken care of thru emails and phone calls. She went the extra mile to make sure everything was how I envisioned it! Highland Springs offers multiple locations for your ceremony and reception and each one is a beautiful place. We received so many compliments on our wedding. It was everything we had wanted and more. It was perfect!

Everyone at the Highland Springs Resort did an incredible job prior to, during, and after my daughter's wedding. Whenever a question came up, everyone made an effort to help us in any way that they could. We have had the pleasure of eating dinner at the Grand Oak Steakhouse twice before and found that the food was outstanding. That was no different on the night of the wedding. Many people commented how much they enjoyed the food. Tina Kummerle was the weddding planner at the resort who stayed with us throughout the whole process. Whenever there was a question she or her staff were very quick to respond, were always very pleasant and easy to deal with. She was awsome! The entire wait staff and bartenders at the reception and at the resort lounge afterward did a great job as well. The DJ kept our guests entertained, playing a range of music that everyone could dance to. The decorations provided by the resort for the Olive Grove reception made for a truly romantic evening. After the day's events, many people from both sides of the family came up to me and expressed what a great time they had.I would highly recommend this wedding venue!

Highland Springs is a hidden secret for many Southern Californias. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff very helpful. The building structures are a bit rustic, but definitely part of the charm. There are many options to hold ceremony and reception, all of which are very beautiful.

Highland Springs Resort was an amazing venue for my daughters wedding. Set in the foothills, with acres and acres of lavender fields, cool pines, charming old olive groves and age old oak trees, Highland Springs Resort was just so incredibly beautiful. My daughter met with Tina, the wedding coordinator and instantly knew she was in good hands! Tina and the staff at Highland Springs resort were so very nice every step of the way. Tina, is so very kind, she attended to every little detail we wanted and it really showed thru out the day. She kept us on track and informed. The whole process was so pleasurable. Our package for the wedding included so much we could really focus on the details we wanted to add and that kept the dreaded wedding stress to a minimum. The day of the wedding, Tina and staff had everything set, she was there running the whole show but you didnt even know it! she is just that good! The food was amazing! One of our guests was a retired chef, who stayed at the hotel for the wedding and had the pleasure of dining at the Grand Oak steakhouse & bar several times and claimed the food to be some of the best he had ever had! Most of what you dine on comes straight from their certified 100% organic farm. The Grand Oak Steakhouse Chef is amazing! Staying at the hotel the night of the wedding was the way to go! We had a party of about 40 who stayed and fell in love with the rustic charm of the whole area and their rooms, which were so clean, fresh, comfortable and affordable. Highland Springs Resort is well worth putting on your must see venue list, you will fall in love! My daughters wedding was everything she and I could ever hope for.

I cannot speak highly enough of Tina and the staff at Highland Springs Resort. Patricia with guest services was also fabulous. They went above and beyond to make my husband and I's wedding the dream day of our lives. They were flexible and professional and Tina took the time to work with us, be patient with us and to catch our vision for the day so that everything was executed perfectly. Everyone at our wedding commented on how fun it was, how they loved the food and cake, how they had so much fun and how it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. I am so pleased with everything and highly recommend this venue.
We had our rehearsal dinner catered at the venue, as well, and everyone loved the burgers and buffet set up.
And while I wasn't a bridezilla, I was fairly particular about how I wanted the vision and feel of the event to be, so Tina being able to exceed my expectations is a feat. Well done!!

TINA & Highland Springs = a match made in organic wedding heaven. I was married at Highland Springs on April 12. I had a dual ceremony - the first a traditional Indian ceremony, the second a Jewish ceremony. I also had a rehearsal dinner and campfire the day before. This place is amazing. I wish I would describe in one paragraph all the things that make this the absolute best place to get married, or to go away for a few days, but it's not possible. I'll start with the team. Tina, the even coordinator, sold me immediately. Down to earth, kind, passionate about her job. As she showed us around, you can feel the spirit of everyone who works there resonates throughout the grounds. There is so much history. It is an understated place that is at once elegant and quirky. I wasted my time visiting other venues before deciding on Highland springs, because Tina was the best coordinator to work with and, at the end of the day, I would say that takes precedent above almost anything else. HSR does not have a wedding coordinator (you have to get that on your own), and for that I'd recommend Dreams Come True Wedding in Ontario - Birgit is a savior. Ok next, the food is spectacular. All organic, healthy, delicious. The chef does everything he can to get what you want just right. They were extremely accommodating with everybody's dietary needs. I also wanted specific drinks served at the Indian ceremony, and they allowed me to work with the chef to get the recipe right for my guests. I was also able to bring in my own favorite coffee, and work with the bartender to create several of my own signature cocktails. The guests raved about the food. As for the resort itself, all the guests loved the rustic simplicity of the rooms, the salt water pool, and the various hiking trails. The staff is extremely accommodating and hardworking and pleasant. They allowed us to completely wire the entire olive grove with speakers for a specific sound effect we were going fo
