Mill Valley | Ralston White Retreat

The Ralston White Retreat is a venue for group retreats, weddings or special events nestled on Mt. Tamalpais. Located on 43 acres in beautiful Mill Valley, California, it was designed by one of San Francisco’s most prolific architects, Willis Polk. The retreat was completed in 1913 and was a wedding gift to Ruth Boericke, Ralston White’s bride. The 14,000 square foot home has three stories, nine relaxing porches and balconies with spectacular views and beautiful furnishings throughout. The heart-shaped lawn and beautiful grounds invite you to enjoy the elegance of your surroundings. There are several walking paths on the property as well as connecting trails that lead to the top of Mt. Tamalpais.
