Nestled within Cleveland National Forest just east of San Diego, Red Hawk Ridge Events is the perfect destination  to create unforgettable memories..  Showcasing 26 acres of rolling oaks and manzanita hills, your senses will be immersed with stunning views and fresh mountain air.  

 The Vision

When the Yi family purchased Red Hawk Ridge nearly two years ago, they envisioned a getaway from the city with their two young children and extended family. Having a keen eye for design and potential, they quickly realized that their newly acquired property could extend well beyond being a family respite.  

“The property has a rich story that needs to be shared.  In addition to the massive logs that were imported from Montana, we were impressed by the  property’s connection to nature and the past.  Our children found arrowheads behind a stone hideaway where the native Kumeyaay once hunted deer.  Those deer still frequent the grounds.”

For Cassia and Jesse, their vision was clear.  And although their professional strengths were in healthcare and not hospitality, the couple ambitiously embarked on a mission to remodel the rustic 27-acre ranch. 

The Yis partnered with close friend and respected agent, Tabitha Andrew from San Diego’s Finest Property Management to help realize their vision.  Together, they created what has become Red Hawk Ridge Events.    

The Log Cabins

The property features two stunning log cabins imported from the Bitteroot Mountains of Montana.  “The goal was to keep the bones of the log homes,while updating the interior with fresh paint and resort-inspired accents.”

Receiving inspiration and guidance from her artistic family,  (which includes renowned designer, Lea Wilson of One Studio D+A),  Cassia led the renovations of the nearly 9000 square feet of indoor space.

Cassia describes the new aesthetic as Rancy Fancy –juxtaposing modern Bohemian with California cowboy.

Providing  accommodations for up to 34 guests, the log homes include a cozy bridal suite and a gentleman’s lounge, complete with big screen TVs, leather sofas, a pool table and cigar lounge. Although quite large, the cabins are quaint and stunningly unique, replete with panoramic views that open to Alpine’s pristine mountain air. 

The Outdoors

The 27 acre land  that surrounds the log homes is a perfect campus for weddings and events. 

 The  space includes two ceremony sites, a star-covered reception veranda, a huge wrap around deck, dance floor, and bar for up to 250 guests. There are walking trails, thoughtfully placed fire pits, heated pool and spa, horseshoe and cornhole pits, and a custom 9-hole disc golf course.

The Experience 

Now officially completed, Red Hawk Ridge is mere minutes from the city, yet a world away. Whether you are seeking a private escape for a family or corporate retreat, or a wedding venue that creates memories that last a lifetime, Red Hawk Ridge is your destination.
