About Regina Yin
We built our home on this lovely 40 ares property and have been living here ever since. My husband was a Structural Engineer and I was a Social Worker. Now we are almost retired and would like to share what we have build with others. We would love you to tell us how you enjoy your stay too.
Regina Yin purchased this Estate in 1993
Why Regina Yin chose Vacaville
We enjoy building a house in this rural country area where we can have 40 usable acres yet near major cities like San Francisco and Davis. We put in three acre size pond with fish, grow redwood trees, pave walkways, add lights, tennis courts, indoor basketball gym, boccie court, large deck, tea house and mini zoo. We added 4000 grape vineyard and 100 olive trees. We also host wedding and events.
What makes this Estate unique
There are two kitchens available and an outdoor BBQ grill. The 40 acres fully landscaped open ranch make you feel you are truly away from all in a quiet country on vacation. Unless we have an event, guests can feel free to walk around the lake and enjoy the Ranch..

LOVED this place
I took my team here for a company visit. This place was lovely. The little lake, and the animals, and the space are so beautiful and well-maintained. Cannot recommend this place enough. My employees were amazed when they saw the grounds. The pictures don't do this property justice.
Big, Well-Furnished House, but very poor AC
My cousins and I rented the Yin Ranch House for a cousin's trip in June 2018. The house was large and very well furnished, and the surrounding farm and pond were very fun to explore. Wifi strength was excellent, and was enough for 15+ devices to run simultaneously.
However, the AC unit is not nearly powerful enough for the whole house. The weekend we were there, temperatures outside reached 105 degrees. The temperature inside with the AC running was in the low to mid 90s. We had to go to the nearby Costco to buy fans to keep our individual rooms cool enough to sleep.
All of the rooms had different levels of renovation (some bedrooms were nicer than others), but overall, it was a very pleasant stay.
Beautiful and Perfect for Women Retreat
I have been looking for a place for Women's Fitness Retreat. I finally found it. We wowed when we drove in the gates, beautiful late, swans, and willow trees... were in sight. Then the Hill House the 14 single beds kept 14 ladies very happy and content. We did the yoga stretch in the mornings and dance aerobics in the evenings on the beautiful redwood deck. At our free time, we biked by the lake and, of course, paddled the boat. We were so amazed by the goat/sheep and the birds/peacocks farms. The hens and roosters woke us up early in the morning.
C.C. and Regina were very friendly and helpful. Regina even tried to solved one of my students urgent business matter.
A weekend's stay is too short. There are so many activities that we have not done. We definitely will come back for fishing, shooting, and archery, etc.
Jill is an excellent and passionate Yoga instructor. Her students are very lucky to have retreat with her. I learned a lot about the benefits of yoga too. The Ranch is privately owned. We have our own event manager and in house chef. We have 4 guest houses and can accommodate up to 30 guest at the Ranch which makes us unique.

Beware - Security Deposit Scam
First the Good: The outdoors of the Ranch are beautiful, The Deck in front of the house was very nice.
The hilltop house itself was poorly maintained, Spider bites when we woke up in the morning, Shaky/unstable beds (hazard), Cook top would not turnoff (hazard), Flies all over the place.
The owner used the Security deposit to pay for items that were broken before our Check in, she charged us $400 for fixing a Shaky bed claiming kids jumped on it, the irony is that there were 6 month old twins in that room, not sure how babies who can barely turn, can jump and break the bed, incorrectly charged for the Patio Umbrella which was already broken (before we moved in), the maintenance guy had left a note the day we moved in saying the Umbrella was broken, not sure why were charged.
Sad that people can be so Greedy.
The property, Owner (Regina), and her staff were so amazing.
If you're looking for a wedding venue, look no further. After visiting Yin Ranch, my husband and I fell in love with the property as soon as we drove through the gates. We loved it so much that we cancelled all the other wedding venues we were going to see. The property is stunning but the people are what really make this place special.
The owner, Regina, has to be the friendliest person we've ever met. We were met with the friendliest smile and enthusiastic personality. At times it seemed like Regina was more excited about our wedding than we were, which put us at ease because you knew she wouldn't let anything go wrong.
The property manager, Victor, was our savior! He definitely made sure we were happy. Anything we needed, Victor always did with a smile (and we definitely asked a lot from him on our wedding weekend). My husband and I know that without Victor, our wedding wouldn't have been as amazing and special as it was. He took so much stress off of us.
The property itself was beautiful and fun. There is so much to do there from basketball courts (indoor and outdoor), fishing, paddle boats, soccer fields, and so much more! Your guests will love it too! It's a perfect wedding location because there are 2 cottages on property for rent so you can have the bridal party, family, or friends stay. It was literally the perfect setting!
We honestly cannot say enough good things about Yin Ranch, you'll just have to go there and experience the magic for yourself. The only con we could think of is that we had to leave/ didn't have enough time to enjoy all that the property has to offer.
Thank you so much Yin Ranch, you made our day more special than we could have imagined!
