Hearing the waves break while you dine, taking in the sunset with loved ones, swaying to the music as moonlight dances across the floor. Our expansive backyard, with its white sand and rhythmic surf, is the perfect setting for a Clam Bake or Beach Barbecue. Guests enjoy cocktails and gourmet eats in the ocean breeze, themed facades for theatrical flair, roasting marshmallows over an open fire ring and the moonlit Pacific Ocean as a backdrop.


With its expansive ocean views and lush garden setting, Windsor Lawn plays host to celebrations that are inspired, engaging and decidedly at ease. From small, intimate gatherings to large receptions, this elegant and versatile lawn gives you creative license to host the unforgettable event you’ve imagined.
