What makes this house unique

PICK FRUIT FROM THE TREES, WALK THE LEVY ROADS OR GRAB YOUR BIKE AND RIDE ONE OF THE MANY COUNTRY ROADS. WALK TO YOLO AIRPORT AND TRY SKYDIVING OR JUST WATCH AS SKYDIVERS JUMP IN THE AIR ABOVE.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow were we surprised when we arrived. Much nicer that photos displayed.

We picked fresh oranges. tangerines and grapefruit. Our dog had PLENTY of room to run.

Very comfortable beds and house to live in. We loved all the quail we saw. It was really fun watching all the different horses get trained. Jennifer even showed my daughter how to brush a horse-thanks Jenny! My daughter did not want to leave, every morning she fed the chickens all our veggie scraps, and named all the chickens.

Stayed for work

  • 5 of 5

This was a great opportunity to relax and unwind from work. My team will be out in CA for 2 months working and traveling the whole state. After working all day it was nice to come back and relax in a peaceful environment. Thanks for a great week.

very comfortable and fun

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful week on a farm. The boys (aged 4 and 2) loved seeing the horses and chickens. The remote control for the tv in the living room never did work, but the boys watched to their hearts' content in their bedroom.

Enjoyed our stay at the ranch!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the ranch house for 3 nights. The house is well furnished and very nice. We loved the ranch setting of the property yet it was still close enough to everything we

needed. It was very relaxing and peaceful as well. We will definitely plan on staying here again.

Incredible get away spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a great 'home away from home' for us. The house was in great condition and the location was perfect. We have relatives in Davis and the house is very conveniently located for all things in and around Davis. The owners were very gracious and made us feel like we were part of the ranch 'family'

Great stay at the Horse Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfy, quiet place outside of town. This was our second time staying at the Horse Ranch and loved it more than the first. The house is clean and well kept and the surroundings peaceful. The kids love visiting the horses (and all the room to run around the property, except it was too hot this time to stay outdoors too long!). We love the quiet mornings and evenings and the STARS at night!!! We picked the sweetest peaches from the orchard and made a pie! Wish we were around the property more, we would have sampled all the varieties of fruit which were so abundant and just falling to the ground--the owner was kind enough to invite us to eat as much as we like! The location is convenient, near the highway and just a short drive into town for errands, groceries, etc. The only suggestion I'd make to the owners is to supply more cooking and eating utensils (they were pretty sparse) and a hot water kettle, and that it would be nice if someone turned on the A/C to cool the house before a tenant arrives during the summer (we walked into what felt like over 100 degrees when we arrived late at night and it took a few hours to finally cool the house down). Otherwise, the place was just right for our summer visit to the area. Thanks Sue!

Graduation accomodations for 4 adults

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and secluded house on a lovely property. My husband and I, plus my two adult sons stayed in this property for 4 days while attending graduation events at UC Davis. The house was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked with dishes for eating and cooking - enough that we were able to host a small graduation dinner for 10 people. We had two bicycles with us, and found the cycling on the rural roads to be excellent. An easy 10 minute drive brought us right to the university and downtown Davis. The only thing lacking (as noted in a previous review) were toilet paper, kleenex, paper towels, and laundry soap.
