Property description

The Nye Ranch is the perfect setting for group or family retreats, and intimate weddings!! A private beach is directly in front of the property. New in 2016 is an organic vegetable and flower farm on the north end of the property. We have also updated the entire interior of the house. Our 100 yr old fir floors are stunning!! Check out the Nye Ranch on Facebook.

This is a unique, 100 year old, fenced 6-acre ocean view property on the California coast. The Nye Ranch was originally a 100-acre dairy. The home is tastefully furnished with antiques, and decorated with art by local artists; giving it a warm, lived in, but up to date modern feel. There is a private flat path to the beach. Well behaved pets are welcome and require a small fee.

There are llamas and horses on the property. You can view whales, an extraordinary variety of birds, deer, and other wildlife, from the private ocean view deck, or from the spotting scope inside the house. Very kid friendly!!!

Immediately fronting the property is an oceanfront pedestrian road where you can walk, jog, or bike for miles (no cars). It is now open all the way into the town of Fort Bragg. The 'haul' road (as it is called) is fabulous for family bike rides or peaceful seaside walks. MacKerricher State Park is an easy walk or bike ride, 1/2 mile north. The town of Fort Bragg is 2 miles south.

This is a great comfortable home for a large family gathering and wonderful for all ages!! The Nye Ranch is a highly scenic, special place that you will never forget.

The Nye Ranch was used as a location in the feature length film The Calm at The Edge of the Sea and in the short film Hallelujah. It has hosted movie making crews, musical recording artists, screenwriters, nurses, yoga retreats, various women's and men's groups, diving and kayaking groups, small weddings, as well as family get togethers and reunions of all sorts.

The property is wonderfully suited for group retreats as there is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy family and friends, while still being able to escape and find solitude, serenity, and peace of mind in your own private space. It's the perfect getaway!!

Do not pay through Western Union or with untraceable money orders as there are frauds out there scamming rental properties. Our calendar is not always up to date as people rearrange their arrivals and departures and we try our best to accommodate their requests. Please write to us for available dates.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We have owned the Nye Ranch for over a decade and do our best to retain the original feel of the ranch. It was the Gillespie Quality Dairy in the 40s and the Gillespie family has been kind enough to share some of their remarkable history with us. Their father built the original shack at McKerricher State Park where one of the Gillespie boys was born when McKerricher was part of the ranch.

Why the Owner Chose Fort Bragg, CA, USA:
Best deck on the coast. Great place for the whole family. Plenty of private places in the house. The northern California coastline is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Come enjoy the magic of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is perfect for extended families and small group retreats. It is very cozy and feels like 'home'. Pet friendly. Borders MacKerricher State Park. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacKerricher_State_Park
