About Tim Wood
The Wood boys grew up spending their summers on the family's four generation Humboldt County, Northern California vacation ranch. Prior to the property's sale, the brothers began searching for a new family retreat. High Rock Ranch was discovered after a four year search of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. The Woods continue their tradition of spending time together at the family's High Rock Ranch.
Tim Wood purchased this House in 2002

Spectacular property, wonderful retreat!
High Rock Ranch is a special location - the property is stunning and the set-up is perfect for a large family vacation. The main house is very spacious and comfortable. We had a wonderful time cooking as a group, lounging in the house, and exploring the grounds. I imagine it would be wonderful in the summer time.
One thing to keep in mind - internet access is very limited at the house as is cell coverage. Of course this made for some quality family time at this wonderful spot!
This was our second trip out to High Rock Ranch and most certainly not our last, we could not have had a better time. We had 18 people and it accommodated everyone comfortably. The owner of the property, as well as the caretaker are extremely helpful and they work hard to make sure your stay is just as great as expected. It is absolute paradise. We already can't wait for our next trip out there!
Perfect weekend getaway
We recently spent an extended weekend at High Rock Ranch with a group of family and friends and it could not have been better. The house is well designed for large groups, and the kitchen setup was perfect. The grounds are beautiful and between the hiking trails, rope swing, pool house, and ping pong table there is plenty to keep everyone occupied. The area is quiet, and we enjoyed visiting the local wineries, and most of all just enjoyed hanging out at this beautiful property. We will definitely be back!!!
My extended family and I (20 total) had the pleasure of recently vacationing at High Rock Ranch. This place is AMAZING. We could not have asked for more. High Rock exceeded our every expectation.
All the kids were in heaven with their time at the upper and lower lakes, rope swings (including the big one into the lower lake), safe zip line, tennis court, HUGE swimming pool and hot tub, massive acre plus flat lawn, tennis court, horse shoes, on and on. Use old folks (30s to grand parents in their 80s) could not have been happier. This is an architectural jewel with the finest amenities.
The ranch's caretaker, W. Dan greeted us upon arrival and showed all around. He could not have been kinder. The 300+ acres is breath taking with its natural beauty and South West exposure. The ranch has 6 miles or trails outside the pig/deer fencing. We took walks daily and saw more wildlife that in my last 5 years of nature walks. Between us all, we saw a bobcat, 10+ wild pig, a large number of turkey, lots and lots of deer, rabbits, many species of birds galore, and the sounds of coyote at sunset.
The cute little town of Boonville is only 5 miles down the road; however, we did not leave the ranch. Why would we. This place is paradise.
Best Camp Ever
My family and I stay at High Rock Ranch from time to time and the joke we have going when we're there is "Best Camp Ever!" It is a wonderful place to get the family together to relax. Quiet. Beautiful. Elegant but relaxed. With lots to do for the adults and the kids. This is one of our favorite places around California.
Wine country paradise and retreat from it all
High Rock Ranch is So special. It has everything and more for fun, relaxation and exploration. There is not a detail left undone. There are endless choices of outdoor activites and wine and beer tasting is minutes away. I have been going there for a family and friends reunion and it's our favorite time of the year.
Rope swings, lakes for swimming, 5 miles of private hiking/mountain biking/running trails on 325 acres, outdoor fire pit, and much, much more
