Guestbook comments from the owner

To Future Guest looking at this book- now don't you feel smug for having discovered what has to be the nearest place this side of perfect... certainly in southern Oregon/northern California. I live in Brookings (on the coast) and while we enjoy the ocean, there is nothing on this earth more relaxing and restorative than a pristine river in the wilderness. And such luxurious "digs"... Hard to call this a cabin.

A big round of applause to Kris & Mike for getting everything absolutely perfect. An even bigger vote of gratitude for their willingness to share this magical place with we lucky few people. Within the first hour here, I told Kris we were never leaving... not very original but certainly heartfelt.

We too, loved Mattie's gentle presence, and how about that "pocket rocket" Nellie.

To think that we can come again makes our hearts sing.

Peaceful and Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5
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.

Life on a Ranch!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about our stay was perfect! The photos do not reflect the beauty of the surroundings and the wonderful feeling this ranch gives you! The cottage was very clean and supplied with basic items we would need. Kris and Mike were extemely helpful in answering any questions we had and they had excellent recommendations for hiking trails etc. We loved the hot tub especially after a big hike. I would cerfainly recommend this place to others, especially if they enjoy exploring and hiking.. We would recommend any of the nearby trails for hiking as the redwoods all around this area are simply majestic!!

A Cabin Setting Better than a Kincaid Painting

  • 5 of 5
The day after Christmas my husband and I arrived with my parents to the most perfect year round vacation spot I have seen in years. Although I father had visions of casting fish hooks into the wild and wooly Smith River we all loved walking around the property taking photographs of wildlife, and off beat art. Most of all we enjoyed each others company in a very comfortable and cozy river front cabin. We could see how this location would be perfect for a family reunion. The listing was better than listed and photographed, and very clean. The most amazing oysters in the world can be found a short drive away in Crescent City, and I loved taking photos for the commercial fishing boats. The Oregon border was nearby where we found several amazing consignment stores. Chris was very helpful in providing contact information of fishing charters.

SPECTACULAR SERENITY

  • 5 of 5
wife and i stayed 3 nights in beautiful middlefork ranch. every amenity...every comfort...everything
needed for a relaxing, recuperative stay. we were both getting over a bout of flu and Kris and her
husband Mike made our stay perfect for getting well. enough so that by the third day, we had enough
energy to hike 10 switchbacks up the mountain toward the gasquet toll road. what a dramatic and
beautiful view. thank you kris and mike for a wonderful mini-vacation.

Unique lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son and self recently returned from a week's stay at the ranch. The grounds are so lovely. The pristine private riverfront beach has chairs and lounge chairs to enjoy. Their garden is spectacular to view. The owner's two friendly dogs come by to visit. I would recommend staying at this rental to all my friends and family. We had a wonderful time!

Stay at Middlefork Ranch in the Rustic Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found this cabin rental by chance, searching for a place to go on our one year wedding anniverasary. We found this place and it was heaven. Our cabin overlooked the Smith River and the 15 acres of property was amazing. We were able to sight see and travel to Oregon and Crescent City with ease, as well as Klamoth CA. Kris and Mike, the owners, were fantastic people and we really had a great time. The foot bridge, made by Mike, was astonishing. We truely enjoyed our stay and will go definitely visit again.
