Those you can find elsewhere, in fact to use a cabin is entirely free while here on the ranch because you are here on agritourism for a $300/daily rate for your group! Unlike most vacation rentals on this site; they have too much neighbor congestion, and someone watching you and your family from every corner and the place looks like there will be no privacy on your vacation again with you and your family. Well not here, this is a working private 125 year old large American historic ranch nestled within a lush alpine valley of its own directly West of Yosemite.
Private fishing, swimming, ATV and horseback riding, and there is nothing like tubing down a river on a sunny day with just your family. The ranch keeps Agri/tourism as its number one objective so you and your family can learn about what its like to be on a farm. You can collect your own chicken eggs, pick herbs, spices, and vegetables from the greenhouse, and feed the pigs your leftovers for the whole ranch experience. We have roping lesions, clay pigeon shooting, and archery range, horseback riding, kayaking .. i say no more!!
Like 'Paul Bunyan' all structures on this iconic ranch are handcrafted from whole natural logs and raw saw milled timber right off the land! This ranch is the perfect place to relax, fish, swim and peacefully unwind. One could even horseback ride down to a private spring fed waterfall or river and prospect for gold! We offer our guests to 'get unplugged' and privately experience the ranch! Please see our reviews!
'Here on this scenic ranch you will feel like your in the middle of Montana but, amazed as I drove out of the main entrance gate and was only 5.5 miles/less than 15 minutes from fine dining, shopping, and museums!' - (Andrew Leon of Orange County)
Your more of an American while out on a our private ranch, more free to do and become what you want, the life style Americans were originally intended to live and fought for with all rights from freedom by our forefathers! . The owner is a self made pioneer in all senses of the word. Perhaps the last of his kind, the ranch has been privately owned since 1885 and since, purchased in 2000, Bronse has brought the ranch once in ruins back to its original prime state. He has personally handcrafted real log cabins made off the land using raw lumber made from his sawmill, whole logs from dead standing timber, and natural granite rocks for massive fireplaces in each cabin. Your are welcome to camp, bring a motor home, hike around, and simply be free about and all its splendor while you are enjoying the great out doors here on the ranch!
“The ranch is in a unique micro climate that is rare in nature, the landscape is green through August then blooms into an array of yellow flowers within its meadows in the fall. There is more to see and learn here in nature than one would imagine with daily sights of deer, turkey, wild boar, black bears, and herd of bison. There are also many vintage pioneer mining camps and equipment you and your family can see and learn about the 1849 Gold Rush! Like an natural and native history museum you can also see and learn about the Indian artifacts here on the ranch.”
Here on the ranch we offer a one of a kind wonderful Agri/Tourism experience which is comprised primarily with a herd of American Bison, horses, mules, and donkeys along with gold mining and prospecting adventures.

“The owner lives on the ranch in a cabin and is very knowledgeable about the history of the ranch and the natural environment. He has hand built the log cabin structures through hard work and true grit and seems to be John Wayne like in character. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic when teaching folks about the ranch's natural and native environment if they wish to do so. He can show you anything from how to track a wild animal to how to eat edibles off the land. On the ranch you feel like your in the 'land of the free' and American with ultimate 'freedom to do what you want' to say the least!”
