“Best Family Vacation”
Reviewed 2 September 2008

what a wonderful week. my mother and I brought my 8 and 10 year olds for a "dude ranch" week. I never thought my video game playing, tv watching kids would fall in love with this place like they did....horseback riding, fishing ,rafting (!), and shooting, along with comfortable accommodations and some of the yummiest meals ever. there were enough other guests to make the week interesting and an opportunity for the kids to make friends. enough structure to keep you busy, and enough free time to let you relax. Heidi and Doug, but equally their kids and their spouses, made for one of the most memorable experiences ever. Don't miss this place....you will love it!!!

Reviewed 20 August 2007

We just returned from a week at Marble Mountain Ranch, an all-inclusive guest ranch located in Northern California. In five days, we rode horses, rafted on the Klamath River, swam in a swimming hole on the river, fished at a high mountain lake, picked apples and made apple cider, had a cookout, sang karioke and played games. And, in the middle of all of that, still had time to flop and just let go.

We thought that the drive from the San Francisco Bay Area would be horrendous, but the roads all the way there are well maintained -- it was an easy drive and quite beautiful. The ranch sits above the Klamath river on the outskirts of the Marble Mountain Wilderness.

We stayed in one of the two houses on the ranch (smaller cabins are also available). It was comfortable and well maintained. We feared before we got there that it might be one of those funky mountain places that smells of dust and is filled with cast off furniture from the fifties and sixties. Not the case. Great king sized bed in the master bedroom.

Meals are included and the food was delicious. The owners are able to accomodate dietary restrictions, including vegetarians and food allergies (we had one of each of those in our family).
