<p>Reached by bridge from the main UC Davis campus across Putah Creek, this luxuriously furnished conference facility overlooks the western end of the Arboretum. Equipped with a sound system and banquet facilities, the interior features a fireplace and connects via French doors with an expansive patio that encircles the Lodge. Beyond the patio, manicured meadows roll west toward the Arboretum pond. Outdoor amenities include an amphitheater nestled around a fire pit, picnic areas shaded by a grove of mature trees and a big stone barbeque and more. Recreation equipment (horseshoes, croquet and volleyball) is available.
