About Mike Calamusa

Our family grew up fishing and boating in the lakes and rivers around Sonoma and Napa Counties, California and we love the mountains. Ever since we sold our publishing business, we've tried to find the perfect place to take our grown kids and their families to spend time with them. With our very first visit to the Running Y Ranch, there was no question we had to make this our go-to destination. We found a home large enough to accommodate the kids and scooped it up. It's heavenly to sit on the front porch or back deck and let the mountain air just penetrate and soothe your soul. The abundant wildlife and picturesque mountain and trees shows you God is in the details. It's an amazing place to stay active too. We golf, ATV, horse back ride, hike, bike ride, fish... and on it goes. We hope you'll find the peaceful tranquility of our home as well as all the amazing activities to suit your preferences the same way our family does. Come anytime for a visit! Enjoy. Sharon & Mike.

Mike Calamusa purchased this house in 2007

Why Mike Calamusa chose Southern Oregon

Our favorite golf course is the Arnold Palmer-designed links at the Running Y Ranch. It's challenging enough for the skilled golfer, but 'playable' enough with generous fairways and greens for when we want to work on our game or just enjoy a fun, social round. The course is ranked in the top 100 nationwide and you'll hear me describe it this way, 'Every hole is a picture postcard. It's so amazingly beautiful'. Bordering the golf course is Klamath Lake! We've been boating, fishing and hiking here. Tip: Bring your camera... there's tons to take pictures of and create a photo library of your vacation!

What makes this house unique

World Class Lakes and Rivers... From one of the worlds most picturesque lakes, Crater Lake to one of the most family-friendly, fun-filled spots, Lake of the Woods, the Klamath Falls Running Y Ranch playground is amazing. Everywhere you look there are rivers just ripe with trophy-size fish and rafting and boating opportunities around every corner. Come on, jump in... The water's great! Plus in Wintertime, the Ice Skating Arena is open. It's magical to be there with family just having fun skating and sipping hot chocolate. Think those romance movies you've seen... it's really quite special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did enjoy it - such a relaxing house. Our favorite spot was the front porch!

When we come back to Klamath Falls, we will definitely consider using your house again.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

We had such a fantastic time in this mountain home. The location was beautiful and there was so much to do! We used the ice skating rink and the pool. We went for walks and relaxed. We will definitely come back!

Would return every year if possible!

  • 5 of 5

Great birthday weekend with my family of five adults and one dog! We visited the spectacular Crater Lake and shared my birthday dinner at the Lodge! We also learneda little about fly fishing, took time for salmon fishing, great golfing at the beautiful Running Y Ranch course just minutes from Caliente! grilled on the patio nearly every day and loved the convenience of such a clean, spacious, comfortable home. Mike couldn't have been more accommodating!

Loved the Klamath Falls Brewery, too.

We didn't get to use the indoor pool---it reminded me of a YMCA facility. Nor did we use any other Ranch amenities other than the restaurant/bar upon return late one evening. Food was delicious!

The only drawback was the fishing guide service recommended by the Running Y---I would not use Roe Outfitters again---much too expensive and guides lacked experience so we were quite disappointed.

All in all, we'd still return if we weren't now in 2 other states.

Our family had an amazing time! Before we left we were already talking about when we wanted to return and stay at Casa Moosa again! Mike was beyond kind and we are thankful for his help.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at your house. It was clean and comfortable. We loved the chairs on the front porch for morning and evening. The Running Y Ranch was lovely and we saw lots of birds. Klamath Falls had some really reasonable grocery stores prices and very good restaurants. It was great to see the lava beds and wildlife refuges around there. I would go back anytime. The only thing we noticed is that there were no paper supplies (paper towels, napkins, Kleenex) in the house, so bought some. Thank you for sharing your lovely house at an affordable price.

Good weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Running Y for the long weekend to spend time with friends. The house was really well maintained and we all had a very comfortable stay. This was a perfect place because it was equidistant from Crater Lake as well as Mount Shasta which were the places that we visited during the time we stayed there. Also the fact that they had a restaurant just 2 mins away from the house was an additional advantage for us(albeit the food was really pricey). But, no complaints at all and we had a really good time! Just a small note : Add more toilet papers in the bathrooms as we ran out of it the 2nd day.

Perfect Birthday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Running Y for my birthday because it was close to home and it had activities that everyone in our group would enjoy. The house was perfect for us! It was clean and comfortable. The master bedroom and on suite was amazing! We loved our stay and will definitely be back!
