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 Klamath Falls

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.

Great property. Very clean and nice. Well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

Close to Upper Klamath Falls lake, has a community indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, tennis courts, ping pong, foosball, basketball, volleyball. Would be a great place for a family to stay. Master bedroom is great with a huge master bath. Grill on the patio and very peaceful. Would be a great home to stay in if you wanted to play golf over the weekend as well.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at "Casa Moosa" on the grounds of the Running Y Ranch. It is such a comfortable place to stay - lots of room, super comfy beds, spacious living room and kitchen, etc. There's a ton to do right on the Running Y property (horseback riding, swimming, bike riding, golf, mini golf, hiking, running- I could go on and on.) AND you're centrally located to head easily to Crater Lake, Lake of the Woods, and the Lava Fields National Monument. Can't say enough great things about the house itself and our hosts. Rent this place!

Fun K Falls vacation

  • 4 of 5

Nice home with golf course across street and not much of a view. Home was clean but not well stocked. Bring your own TP and paper products. Weber charcoal grill so bring your own Kingsford. Bring laundry soap and soap for shower. Lots of walking thru ranch and golf course very nice. Most of the shops in their town square area closed. No pizza place! Ate at the lodge a few times and the food was very good but service not so much.
