This was the perfect family trip for me. Every day you are busy having fun, learning and challenging yourself with the activities like horseback riding, shooting and rafting. The staff are friendly, kind and caring. I can't say enough about the delicious food, suffice to say I bought the cookbook they offer. They were able to comfortably accommodate my family...

The horse riding was so much more enjoyable than we imagined (especially with 3 older boys) the rafting was incredible, and the shooting range was a lot of fun too. Every...

A beautiful, rustic guest ranch in the mountains of northern California. Heidi and Doug are wonderful hosts. I had heard that the food was great and it exceeded my expectations. I'm looking forward to coming back someday!

Our family (2 boys 13 & 16) had a great week at the ranch. Doug and Heidi have really done a great job in combining warm hospitality with the adventurous ranch activities. We loved the daily schedule and home cooked meals! Very family oriented but also great for adults. The staff, family and overall culture of the ranch were exceptional...

We are a family of varied ages and interests: 60+, 50+ (2)25 & (2)15. The ranch was great for ALL of us, and believe me, that's not easy. Doug and Heidi are warm and welcoming, have decades of experience, and are involved in every aspect of ranch life. Their staff all reflect their dedication to their guests, ranch, animals, et...

We, family of 4 with two kids age 6 and 11, stayed for the first time at a dude ranch.
