Our stay at Middlefork Ranch was peaceful and picture perfect in every way. It is just as advertised, and more. Families like ours, which included an active 5-year-old, will love this place with private outdoor space galore! We didn't need to bring half the things we packed. The roomy kitchen and 2 bathrooms were stocked for every need. Mike and Kris obviously work hard to maintain their property and make their guests comfortable. Everywhere we looked, the ranch was carefully maintained and equipped for guests to enjoy the scenery, the river and surrounding acres of property. There are several rentals scattered about the ranch. We stayed at the roomy Raven's Nest, but there is also a Yurt and at least one other unit, possibly more. We felt as if we had the entire ranch to ourself. Crescent City is about 30 minutes away and we enjoyed the exceptional dinner menu and service at Porcini Restaurant overlooking the beach. Just a few miles west of the property, along Hwy 199, is Stout Grove where several scenes in Star Wars were filmed. The beauty of this slightly off the beaten path grove of redwoods is not to be missed. The internet connection is slow...don't expect to download big files, it won't happen...and cell service was spotty for us. That seems to be how it is in the area generally. You may need to leave your business behind and simply soak up the peace you can find here. Many thanks to our hosts for sharing their beautiful and unique property with us in such a welcoming way.
