Tucked away in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, CordeValle is a hidden gem that combines the extraordinary beauty of an awe-inspiring natural landscape with the convenience and hospitality of a luxury resort. Sprawling over almost 1,700 acres and cradled in a valley surrounded by rolling Northern California countryside, the resort is a sanctuary of gently undulating meadows, tree-dotted hills, seasonal creeks and waterfalls.
The architecture and ambiance of CordeValle carefully reflect the natural beauty of its surroundings with meticulously designed, California Craftsman–style structures. This organic, historically resonant design, created by Backen & Gillam, is carried throughout the resort, from the clubhouse to the guestrooms. The interior design, by Chhada, Siembieda/Remedios, takes its cue from the colors and textures found in the surrounding hills and mountains. This rare melding of architecture and interior design serves to highlight, rather than detract from, views of the pristine golf course.
The understated luxury of the clubhouse incorporates over 4,100 square feet of private, state-of-the-art meeting and conference rooms and special event dining for up to 120 guests, as well as three distinct dining venues: One Iron Bar, Lion’s Peak Grill and Il Vigneto. The centerpiece of the resort is a 7,360-yard championship golf course, which boasts 360-degree unobstructed views. The resort also features a spa, fitness room, outdoor pool, winery and tennis center with four Plexicushion tournament courts.
CordeValle’s art collection is showcased throughout the hotel. There are sculptures by John Kennedy and paintings by renowned artists including Dan Namingha.
