Madrone Tree Hill

Madrone Tree Hill is your perfect natural outdoor wedding or event venue!
Hidden within 50 acres of mature White Firs, Silver Tips, Douglas Firs, Sugar Pines & Ponderosa Pines is a scattering of majestic Madrone trees that are unique to this area.  Madrone Tree Hill is located in the fresh air of the western Sierra Foothills known to many as Apple Hill. While you’re here enjoy the many fruit farms, bake shops, wineries, and breweries.


Choose from one of our three ceremony/event sites:

Creekside Cabin


The meadow area behind the cabin offers a large shaded area in the afternoon with a creek winding gently amongst the trees. This venue provides a serene escape to days gone by.  When the sun sets, the meadow is lit with strands of overhead lights creating a magical glow adding a romantic feel to the meadow as you dance into the night, or just enjoy good conversation with family & friends.


Madrone Hilltop

Get lost in one of three Hilltop locations.

The Woods

A thick blanket of pine needles covers the forest floor, through which a meandering path weaves its way amongst a stand of pine trees. Birds chirp as a gentle breeze rustles the leaves overhead through the treetops. This location is for the true nature lover.  It is rustic and may not be for everyone.  The area is left in its natural state and events need to accommodate for nature and not the other way around. 

Nestled within this forest, nature created two majestic Madrone trees for you to choose from for your ceremony "I Do’s." These sites are perfect for smaller groups, but can also be a truly unique experience for a large group.

The Black Forest

Now, for something completely different!

Found in this forest of perfectly aligned trees, sits a single gnarly old Madrone tree. Dark shadows blanket the ground as a single dead leaf falls from the tree.  The wind moans through the trees as guests are seated for a wedding ceremony in the round under this giant Madrone Tree reaching for the heavens creating the ultimate canopy for your vows.

No Matter what natural ceremony site you choose, you can be assured each has its own unique backdrop creating an everlasting moment in time for your special day

For the reception part of your special day you can enjoy natural beauty as your backdrop with the sunlight streaming through the trees and dancing under the stars or bring in tenting if you prefer.  Should you choose to offer your guests alcohol, we require our couples to use the services of A Perfect Pour

This is a DIY venue, and while we have giant Madrone Trees reaching for the heavens creating the ultimate canopy for your vows, you will need to bring in everything else you need for your event.
