Enjoy a taste of the country in a privately owned home nestled on the 400 acre Albaugh Ranch in the beautiful Fall River Valley. Your family or small group (4-10) can enjoy the activities of the area while staying within the comforts of home.

With exquisite views, this is the perfect wedding venue! Lush green lawns and an arbor of maple, walnut and apple trees create an intimate setting, while a backdrop of barns, fields and mountains enhance the array of photographic opportunities, all in one location.

Our guest house offers four bedrooms, two and one half bathrooms, full kitchen and most amenities. The large, paver patio, complete with gas grill, is great for barbecues or social events. For those embracing nature, lounge on the lawn and take in the scenery. This working cattle ranch borders the Pit River and is home to fertile pastures, hay and wheat crops, and stocker and cattle pairs. Enduring four generations, this ranch exhibits a warm, familiar feeling of home.

The Albaugh Ranch is just a 10 minute drive from the Fall River Valley Golf Club. This championship 18-hole course has been rated 4.5 stars from 'Golf Digest' and is known for its excellent 'pace of play', large greens and wide fairways. Also nearby are the world class fly fishing streams, Hat Creek and Fall River. Fishing season starts the last Saturday of April and runs through November 15th.

To inquire about the Ranch as a wedding venue, please email: for a quote as wedding rental fees differ from guest house rental fees.

a Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to get away from your busy city life. Great and relax panorama view of Lassen peak. The living room is large enough for family gathering. 30 minutes away from Burney Fall and 1 hr beautiful drive from Lassen National Park.

The property is very clean and well maintained. The owners live 2 minutes drive away, and they are very helpful.

I would recommended this place to my friends.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our anniversary in FRM and we were very happy with the fantastic views, comfortable accommodations and the well outfitted kitchen. It's not far from the popular fly fishing spots and our dog enjoyed the yard. I found the ranch to be a nice home away from home and would stay at the house again.

A Wonderful Home with an Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Albaugh house for guests who were coming to my late husbands memorial service. The house was spotless and is so spacious! Everyone enjoyed their privacy, and complemented the rooms, comfortable beds and incredible view and grounds. I would recommend Albaugh house to all my friends. It is perfect for a large group or family reunion!

Valley Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay was the best! Picture window overlooking grazing Angus with a backdrop of snow peaked Mt. Lassen was just the right thing for us to lay back and relax. Host and hostess were more than accommodating helping us out whenever we needed it. We have used VRBO before , but the Albaugh Ranch House is the highest on our list. Big roomy house for a couple of more guests that joined us for a few days. We hope we can stay there again. Can't wait!
