Guestbook comments from the owner
Our group LOVED Oak Creek Lodge and hopes to return in greater number some day! We cooked, we ate, we swam, we played bocce, we had a craft table in the dining room that was occupied with one or more of us most of the weekend. We hiked the property, had lunch on Sunday at the Pozo Saloon where we regrouped after 5 of us hiked the Rinconada Trail (woof!). I did a little watercolor sketch of the barn while sitting on a bench in a nice shady spot. You must be SO PROUD of the ranch.

We have owned this beautiful property for more than 20 years. Our family has enjoyed family gatherings and group events here for a long time, and we are happy to share the opportunity with other groups so that they can experience the beauty and serenity of The Lodge at Oak Creek Ranch.

Dottie Nelson purchased this lodge in 1986

We bought this property in the mid-80s. It was an old Campfire Girl’s camp that Campfire no longer needed. Jeff’s sister was a Campfire board member who introduced us to it. Early years were all vision and planning. We slowly began making improvements from 2000 to 2009. We have controlled every detail of the development and continue to work each time we are here to make it a little better. It enriches our lives to share this place with people, hoping that they leave with just a little more positive spirit. It is a wonderful place to just connect with people and nature in a world where those simple acts are challenging.

The remote location and serene setting, along with the fact that rental groups have exclusive use of the entire property, make Oak Creek Lodge the perfect location for corporate retreats, family reunions and other intimate gatherings.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT RETREAT AT OAK CREEK

  • 5 of 5
I led a retreat of 23 people at Oak Creek Lodge and the stay was absolutely PERFECT on all levels! The property is gorgeous. There is so much wildlife and you feel like you are somewhere far away. The pool is beautiful. The rooms are adorable and easily accommodated the large group while keeping things spacious. The chef was phenomenal. And the owner made sure everything was perfect which it was!!!!!

Owner's Response: Your group is exactly the kind of group we love to host--appreciative of the nature setting and beauty of the wildlife, but active and interested in taking in all of the activities we can offer, from massage to wine tasting, hiking and even zip-lining. You are welcome back anytime!

THE PERFECT FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Oak Creek Lodge was magical. We held our small do-it-yourself wedding at the site. All of our friends and family enjoyed the property. It was the perfect setting in spring for our small ceremony. The facilities were exactly as described and what we needed for the weekend. Yoga in the well-stocked studio was the perfect start to the day. Walking the trails on the property was the perfect afternoon activity. At night, we all visited in the lodge's large living room. We hope to come back and enjoy the magic of this place again.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, GREAT CHOICE

  • 5 of 5
We used the Lodge at Oak Creek for a company conference and everyone was thrilled! It was refreshing to be in a secluded country setting with plenty of room for everyone. I would definitely recommend this location for large group events. The team at the Ranch even set us up with local companies that catered our lunches, which was super helpful.

FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY

  • 5 of 5
We just held my son's first birthday party at the lodge and it was amazing! We had 19 adults and 14 kids who were friends and family all meet to celebrate the special weekend. I had so many compliments on the venue and Dottie the owner was a pleasure to work with. The icing on the cake was a hay ride up to the top of the hill where we got some really great photos. It was truly a wonderful location from start to finish.

PEACEFUL PARADISE THAT IS GREAT FOR LARGE GROUPS

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Oak Creek Lodge twice now and it just keeps getting better. The first time I set foot on the property I fell in love with it. The secluded nature setting mixed with spacious and modern facilities make this the ideal property for any large group wanting to get away and enjoy each other's company. Dotty, the property owner, goes out of her way to make your stay special. She even scheduled a hay ride from around the property which was fun for the kids and adults. The pool is in an oasis in the summer, the barn is great for playing games as a group. In all, this is one of the best properties we have ever rented as a group and we have been doing these trips for the last 15 years.

AN ABSOLUTE DIAMOND IN THE RUFF

  • 5 of 5
We went with 8 couples to celebrate a 40th birthday and absolutely loved Oak Creek. The lodge is spacious which provided us with enough room to spread out while still maintaining the feeling of being together as a group. It was quiet, peaceful while still providing an fun atmosphere. We were never bored as we went from pool side bar to barn and back. Loved it! We will be going back!
