For those who appreciate the finest in a luxury-rustic, Western retreat, imagine staying at a sprawling 200-acre private conservation ranch featuring a Sundance-style, tastefully decorated, custom-built complex which comfortably sleeps up to 18 guests. This exclusive country property in beautiful Grass Valley, CA, features a private creek,swimming pond with rowboats and zip-line, hiking trails,stone amphitheater with outdoor range and fire pit, lighted tennis and basketball court, and hot-tub.
What is particularly unique about this rustic, western, rural property is the aesthetics that emerge from a table grape orchard as well as a stone fruit orchard. Both of these orchards, at various times of the year, generate fruit that are readily available to any renters at the property. In addition, another unique aesthetic is the horse-breeding operation that includes eight American saddle-bred, purebred horses as well as two very friendly Sicilian donkeys. There is also a Black Angus cattle enterprise that includes both the mothers as well as young offspring, small Black Angus calves. The calves can be very playful, and visitors to the ranch are welcome to visit with all of the animals on the property.
The 5500 sq-ft main house, built by custom woodworkers, has a floor to ceiling family library in the great room with majestic, stone fireplace and large refectory table for group dinners. The main house sleeping accommodations include a 10 bed bunk wing, sleeping loft, and screened sleeping porch. As of September 2015 there is air conditioning in every room.
The 600 sq-ft gate house cottage is well appointed with walnut floors, hand plastered walls, tumbled marble and executive bath. 2 additional 300 sq-ft view bungalows overlook a picturesque valley. Each cottage is a short stroll from the swimming pond and main house. Each cottage contains a queen size bed, well appointed bath and private deck.
Golf, skiing, rafting,and biking are just a few of the activities accessible by short car trip from the ranch. The property is conveniently close to historic Sierra foothill cities, Auburn, Nevada and Grass Valley and the scenic Yuba and American Rivers. Our caretaker and cowboy concierge lives on the property in a separate unit away from the main ranch house and is on hand to ensure your stay is one to remember.
