The Nye Ranch is the perfect setting for group or family retreats, and intimate weddings!! A private beach is directly in front of the property. New in 2016 is an organic vegetable and flower farm on the north end of the property. We have also updated the entire interior of the house. Our 100 yr old fir floors are stunning!! Check out the Nye Ranch on Facebook.
This is a unique, 100 year old, fenced 6-acre ocean view property on the California coast. The Nye Ranch was originally a 100-acre dairy. The home is tastefully furnished with antiques, and decorated with art by local artists; giving it a warm, lived in, but up to date modern feel. There is a private flat path to the beach. Well behaved pets are welcome and require a small fee.
There are llamas and horses on the property. You can view whales, an extraordinary variety of birds, deer, and other wildlife, from the private ocean view deck, or from the spotting scope inside the house. Very kid friendly!!!
Immediately fronting the property is an oceanfront pedestrian road where you can walk, jog, or bike for miles (no cars). It is now open all the way into the town of Fort Bragg. The 'haul' road (as it is called) is fabulous for family bike rides or peaceful seaside walks. MacKerricher State Park is an easy walk or bike ride, 1/2 mile north. The town of Fort Bragg is 2 miles south.
This is a great comfortable home for a large family gathering and wonderful for all ages!! The Nye Ranch is a highly scenic, special place that you will never forget.
The Nye Ranch was used as a location in the feature length film The Calm at The Edge of the Sea and in the short film Hallelujah. It has hosted movie making crews, musical recording artists, screenwriters, nurses, yoga retreats, various women's and men's groups, diving and kayaking groups, small weddings, as well as family get togethers and reunions of all sorts.
The property is wonderfully suited for group retreats as there is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy family and friends, while still being able to escape and find solitude, serenity, and peace of mind in your own private space. It's the perfect getaway!!

We have owned the Nye Ranch for over a decade and do our best to retain the original feel of the ranch. It was the Gillespie Quality Dairy in the 40s and the Gillespie family has been kind enough to share some of their remarkable history with us. Their father built the original shack at McKerricher State Park where one of the Gillespie boys was born when McKerricher was part of the ranch.
Karin purchased this house in 2002
Best deck on the coast. Great place for the whole family. Plenty of private places in the house. The northern California coastline is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Come enjoy the magic of the area.
Our home is perfect for extended families and small group retreats. It is very cozy and feels like 'home'. Pet friendly. Borders MacKerricher State Park. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacKerricher_State_Park
Dear owners of the house,

Dear BIG HOUSE!
It was great everyday in this house. It was so great with the beach and llamas? -H
We just returned from our vacation at The Nye Ranch (3rd year in a row). We're a family of 7 adults and 4 kids (7 to 12) and this place is ideal. This is a quality house with upgraded bathrooms, good beds, many rooms for privacy, nicely appointed kitchen, and always clean and neat upon arrival. Outside is a giant deck with an ocean view and a hot tub. Then there is the fenced area for dogs and the huge fire pit for after dinner fun. A short walk to a beach that you'll probably have all to yourself. And a paved bike trail along the beach that goes for miles. Golf, hiking, good restaurants near by. Perfect family get-a-way.
My friends and I loved NYE Ranch. The beds are very comfortable and the space is easy to relax in. This place is set up for maximum relaxation and zero stress. The house feels like a home and is set up in a practical manner. We loved having the firepit and the hottub was well maintained. I've rented many places along the coast and Russian River area and this has by far been the best experience we've had.
This house was cozy and comfortable. Super location, within walking distance of a nice beach. Great views, close to town and all other activities. Will rent again.
We absolutely loved this house from the minute we walked in the door. Charming, cozy, perfect. We had a large group and everyone was well accommodated. Most of the adults would find themselves drawn to the amazing deck to just stare across the fields at the sea and watch the sunset. The kids had a blast running around and hanging out in the loft. I think everyone in the house made use of the beach path. This property made our trip so special and fun. I hope we can go back someday!
Absolutely LOVED this house the minute we walked in. Wonderful old world charm with up to date facilities. Warm and homey. The grounds and llamas were great and a lovely path to the beach. I'd love to go back someday. Easy access to town. A wonderful vacation spot.
Please do yourself a favor and rent this property! Only minutes away from Eggheads, Piaci's, & Pacific Star Winery. The house was impecably clean, the beds were comfortable & the view was spectacular (not to mention the double headed shower)!
My niece loved the llamas and the short walk to the beach. The Burns (the owners) kept in contact with me to make sure we were enjoying ourselves at their property. The house had everything you would need, from the telescope (which we used to gaze at the constallations) to the bicycles in the garage.My family & I can't wait to return!
Walking, biking on old haul road in front of property. Ocean is right in front of the property. Weddings.
