|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This is the stuff dreams are made of. Spend a weekend in the California countryside. Your home base will be the oldest barn in Shasta County. Beautifully renovated into a comfortable guest house furnished with antiques and heirlooms, the Barn House at Stonewall Ranch is a true country retreat.
Up to four people and their well-behaved pets may visit from two nights to a week. (If you'd like to stay longer, please contact us.)
Just 17 miles from Redding, California, this is the ideal place to truly "get away from it all." Set in a peaceful mountain meadow by a year-round boulder-lined stream on a paved mountain road that winds through woodland virtually untouched by the developer's hand, the Barn House is a place like no other.
Visit our website at www.stonewall-ranch-barn-house.com to learn more about the area.
Beautifully furnished with heirlooms, antiques and works by local artists and craftspeople, the Barn House features Tennessee red-oak hardwood floors and knotty pine paneling throughout on walls and cathedral ceilings.
Features: An open floor-plan; natural-stone fireplace built with stones from the ranch; well-equipped kitchen with full-size appliances; family-size dining table and dining alcove; massive decks that run the length of the building overlook a meadow and the boulder-lined creek that runs along the length of the property.
The Barn House is a romantic hideaway for couples. Let the sounds of the gentle brook just outside the door lull you to sleep. The bedroom features an antique four-poster double bed, an heirloom chest, 19th century armoire and dresser, and a contemporary wing-back recliner
The great room with its cathedral ceilings and knotty pine interior is as comfortable as it is beautiful. Antique chairs, deep old-fashioned rockers, and a warm natural-stone fireplace with pellet insert create an inviting home. Relax with a good book by the fire, listen to music and enjoy a glass of wine. The futon couch converts to a full-size bed.
From the massive decks, kick back and enjoy being surrounded by nature. Stonewall Ranch is home to a variety of wildlife--the California black bear, wild turkey, the rare ringtail cat, the endangered martin/fisher, and herds of deer freely roam the mountain. Our guests are more likely to see deer pass by on their way to the creek, than cars on the quiet country lane that leads to the property.
A paradise for hikers and mountain bicyclists, the property abuts the backside of Whiskeytown NRA, a veritable wilderness. Backpacking, mountain biking, hiking, nature walks and quiet meditation by the year-round stream are all part of the quiet life here at Stonewall Ranch.
Ample parking is available for large vehicles, including RVs (no hookups).
Well-behaved dogs are welcome at the Barn House at $10 per dog per night. To ensure that pets continue to be welcomed, please make sure that they do not get onto the furniture, and do not leave them alone while you are away from the Barn House. We have a pet-friendly cupboard filled with all the little extras that our pet-owning friends might need--everything from old afghans and blankets to make a cozy bed for Fido, to towels to use after a visit to the nearby creek.
The Barn House at Stonewall Ranch is just 20 minutes from Redding, but it feels like a world away. In some ways it is. There are no gas stations, supermarkets or convenience stores once you leave Redding. There is a small general store in Igo that is open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. for essentials, as well as milk, bread, beer and cigarettes. There are no hard-liquor sales in Igo. The Igo Store also serves breakfast on Sunday morning, and during the week hamburgers and deli sandwiches are available.
The Barn House at Stonewall Ranch is a quiet, restful vacation home for people who truly want to get away from it all and enjoy time in the woods. The Barn House has cable TV, Excede broadband satellite internet connectivity, and internet-based telephone service.
Open flames are not allowed anywhere on the property. Flameless candles and lanterns are available for your use.
Smoking is not permitted inside the Barn House. Smoking is allowed on the exterior decks away from open windows and doors. E-cigarettes and vapes may be used inside the Barn House, so long as they do not emit a strong odor.
The Barn House is air conditioned and has an overhead fan in the great room for warm weather, and a propane heating stove, as well as a pellet insert for the fireplace for chilly temperatures.
It took Denise a lot of years to find the property that ultimately became Stonewall Ranch, and more years to renovate the oldest barn in Shasta County into the home she occupied for several years.
But as circumstances changed, she moved to another house on the property, making the Barn House available as a rental property. Today, she and her wife Lisa Donnelly live just up the road on another part of the ranch with an assortment of rescued dogs, cats and parrots.
Denise is a life-long resident of Shasta County and an avid golfer. Lisa is a writer and entrepreneur who is developing a line of botanically infused personal care products.
The Barn House is LGBT-owned, with special discounts available to our Rainbow Family.

As developers increasingly began to run roughshod over Shasta County, Denise started searching for a place that remained relatively untouched. She discovered Zogg Mine Road and Stonewall Ranch. The peaceful woodland with its ancient trees, boulder-lined creek, and pastoral landscape is a slice of serenity. The nearby hamlet of Igo is a bit of Americana that is rapidly disappearing, with its cozy general store and the Post Office where everyone goes to pick up their mail, since there is no home mail delivery. At Stonewall Ranch, we and our neighbors live a quiet life far removed from the hustle and din of city life. We invite you to join us.
Step onto the back deck and breathe deeply. Look up into the night and see stars spilling across the sky like a broken bag of rhinestones. Listen to the quiet. Watch a doe and her fawn move slowly across the meadow to the creek. Such is the stuff of magic.
Inside, feel the warmth of wood surround you, a cozy fire in the natural-stone fireplace, shadows chasing across cathedral ceilings, stained glass glowing warm and inviting.
Just as the photos convey this property truly is an intimate retreat in the countryside, and was exactly what my partner and I were looking for when planning a get-away to celebrate the new year.
Its cozy, well-appointed craftsman-style interior was so comfy it was NOT difficult to procrastinate from our daily fly fishing excursions. (Let's have another cup of coffee next to the fire! Those trophy rainbows need their beauty sleep, afterall.)
Because we were fishing the lower Sacramento River the Barnhouse was the perfect location; a scenic but short 12 mile drive to Redding, yet, nestled along the appropriately named Clear Creek.
I beleive the Barnhouse is a perfect stay for creative types seeking solitude and inspiration, romantic couples, older couples, those in denial of or forever greiving the 2016 election cycle, well-behaved dogs (but ONLY if they have well-behaved masters), and all outdoor-enthusiasts unafraid of embracing their inner-Martha Stewart.
Whether walking along the meandering road and creek, gazing out large picture windows at wildlife and pastures, lounging next to the handcrafted stone fireplace (with or without a Kindle or tablet), or simply enjoying the warmth of a glass of wine or the sun itself from the oversized decks, the Barnhouse at Stonewall Ranch is a special little gem.
And its colorful and extremely thoughtful owners make the experience all the more worthwhile.
Thank you, Denise. We'll be back in April.

This was our second trip to the Barn. It is so beautiful peaceful and charming I always have a hard time leaving. Great walks with the dogs, close to Redding to visit cousins but can really feel a sense of disconnect and peace here. I absolutely love it!
You could see that every detail had been thought out. The place was amazing. It was smallish but we had plenty of room for our needs.
If you're looking for a wonderful country get away this is the spot !
I stayed there to visit family near Redding. This was the perfect location and I recommended it to other family members visiting the area. The house is very comfortable and nice.
The owners are super hospitable and made us feel very welcome.
Two of us and our dog spent three lovely nights at the Barn House. It was perfect for the three of us. What a great place to get away. We were looking for an easy place to get to and this was. We also wanted someplace quiet and beautiful. This was both. The only thing you hear from the house and yard is the creek. It was a great place to walk, easy with our dog. The house is comfortable and had more than everything we needed. Denise and Lisa are wonderful, nice and so helpful. They made the stay all the more pleasant. There is easy walking there and it's also a great place to just hang out and read. I highly recommend the Barn House and we look forward to a return trip.
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Bar House. It is in a beautiful location, so quiet and serene. The barn house is so nicely decorated Denise and Lisa are perfect hostess and made us feel comfortable. Denise is so knowledgeable of the area. She took us on beautiful show-me-trip around and showed us the sites. I would highly recommend this quaint get-away to friends and relatives. We hope to be able to stay again.
