"Given the unique location along with the photos, we expected a beautiful stay and yes, we got that...and more. It is difficult to explain just how much our family (7) enjoyed and got so much out of this experience, that we will walk away with a treasure full of fantastic memories. The 190 acre ranch is so beautiful that it is truly awe-inspiring. My son said to me while cooking steaks on the barbecue that "this is the best vacation he has ever had".....and I must agree. The 3 children fell in love with the donkeys, the peacocks and especially the extremely friendly cats. My granddaughter brought in fresh eggs every morning for breakfast, a truly wonderful experience for this city-girl. The care-taker couple just were terrific and added another adventure/education experience to our vacation. Of course, we visited nearby Sequoia but couldn't wait to return to our mountain ranch "home" to settle in and enjoy the evening sunset on the surrounding hills and mountains and of course the ever-rushing South Fork River that flowed by our ranch/barn/home. My 5-star rating doesn't accurately reflect the joy and pleasure this stay brought us; I only wish there were 10 stars. What more can I say....we will return!"
