About the Property

A Secluded, Private, Ranch Retreat Ideal For Family And Friend Getaways!

Need to Relax? You've picked the right place. Nestled in the deeply carved valleys of the driftless region, Big Valley Ranch offers a quiet and extraordinary lodging experience where you can horseback ride, hike, bike and more right outside your door. Wildlife abounds with birds, squirrels, deer, turkey, and you might even see the elusive red fox, or a Big Buck just yards from the ranch. The grounds are both breathtaking and beautiful, with plenty of room for outdoor games and gatherings. With 40 miles of trails, natural streams, a covered picnic pavilion, 60 outdoor horse paddocks, a sand volleyball court and an impressive lighted outdoor arena, the possibilities are endless.

Once a buffalo ranch, the 800 acres is now home to an exclusive western retreat and vacationer’s paradise. The Pioneer house features 3 western themed bedrooms, 2 Full baths, a majestic Great Room, Dining Room, Living Room, Kitchen and an enormous deck. The fully-equipped kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The Dining room features a large dining table not far from a cozy seating area. The Great Room leads outside to a private, full-length deck facing a horse pasture where you can enjoy grilling out and relaxing. The Pioneer house sleeps up to 8 people.

We have a house for every group and budget. Check out our affordable bunk house which holds up to 6 people. Amenities include: 4 full size bunk beds, futon, microwave, mini refrigerator, TV and outdoor grill. Or for more plush accommodations, we have our luxurious Barn House for up to 10 people.

Big Valley Ranch is meant to be versatile. Let us know what kind of experience you are looking for and we will do our best to accommodate. Our piece of paradise is meant for anyone that wants to escape from the stressful, hectic lifestyle we often find ourselves in.
