Enjoy a taste of the country in a privately owned home nestled on the 400 acre Albaugh Ranch in the beautiful Fall River Valley. Your family or small group (4-10) can enjoy the activities of the area while staying within the comforts of home.

With exquisite views, this is the perfect wedding venue! Lush green lawns and an arbor of maple, walnut and apple trees create an intimate setting, while a backdrop of barns, fields and mountains enhance the array of photographic opportunities, all in one location.

Our guest house offers four bedrooms, two and one half bathrooms, full kitchen and most amenities. The large, paver patio, complete with gas grill, is great for barbecues or social events. For those embracing nature, lounge on the lawn and take in the scenery. This working cattle ranch borders the Pit River and is home to fertile pastures, hay and wheat crops, and stocker and cattle pairs. Enduring four generations, this ranch exhibits a warm, familiar feeling of home.

The Albaugh Ranch is just a 10 minute drive from the Fall River Valley Golf Club. This championship 18-hole course has been rated 4.5 stars from 'Golf Digest' and is known for its excellent 'pace of play', large greens and wide fairways. Also nearby are the world class fly fishing streams, Hat Creek and Fall River. Fishing season starts the last Saturday of April and runs through November 15th.

To inquire about the Ranch as a wedding venue, please email: for a quote as wedding rental fees differ from guest house rental fees.

Really nice place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week here. The house is great, clean and attractive. Comfy. beds. Well-stocked kitchen. Plenty of everything. BIg windows with tranquil views of lovely pasture country and mountains in the background. Loved the jacuzzi after a day of hiking along the several nearby rivers where the dogs went swimming. Lots of hot water. Give Tex an apple and get a few feet from a super huge longhorn! Close to a small town with basic stores and a couple decent restaurants. Very convenient. Owner came to meet us so all felt good.

Scenic and peaceful with clean air and fantastic cool nights!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 4 cyclists enjoyed staying at this very nice house & we are making plans to do it again next year! We especially enjoyed hanging out on the "soft" lawn (it really is! so soft!), the big back patio and gazing at the sky, clouds and quietness. Our dogs enjoyed running on the lawn and watching the cows. The laundry-room/mudroom was a perfect place for them to sleep too. The one drawback was that it was a bit hot for people sleeping on the first night. I think that was due to the exceptionally hot weather spell the day prior (over 100 degrees).

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This rental was so homey and large. There were four couples and perfect space for all of us.

The view from the front windows is the majestic Mt. Lassen and fields of cattle. I loved waking up to the quails song and the cows baying. So relaxing. Love the retro. I did not expect this quality home.

I prepped deli trays for the wedding party and there was plenty of space in the kitchen. Lots of the ranch history and you felt like part of the family. Thank you for welcoming us here. The owners were readily available when we had questions. There are three toilets it would only be better if there was one more shower, especially with girls.

Perfect Getaway with Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I enjoyed staying here for our weekend getaway. The valley and mountain view from the living room/dining room was amazing. The house was completely clean, spacious, well maintained, and fully stocked. My sisters and I were very comfortable. The owners live close by and were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this house as a great place to stay, and hope to come back some time to continue exploring this beautiful area of California.

a Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to get away from your busy city life. Great and relax panorama view of Lassen peak. The living room is large enough for family gathering. 30 minutes away from Burney Fall and 1 hr beautiful drive from Lassen National Park.

The property is very clean and well maintained. The owners live 2 minutes drive away, and they are very helpful.

I would recommended this place to my friends.
