Mountain Ranch lodge description

Our ranch is a family orientated property that stands on 350 acres and accommodates up to 20 people if you rent all the structures. We have 8 bedrooms in total between the Lodge (4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms), Guest House (3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms), & Creek Side Cottage (1 bedroom & 1 bathroom). In addition, the Living Rooms provide 3 extra air mattresses. All 3 homes are within 100 yards of each other. If desired, you have the ability to rent just the Lodge outside of June, July, August & holidays (we always rent the ranch in it’s entirety during the summer & holidays). if you are entertaining a small group. And you need not worry... we never share the ranch (invite more than one reservation during any time period).
