Welcome to Life on the Ranch
Greenhorn Ranch is a premier guest ranch in Northern California’s Lost Sierra. Established in 1962, we’ve built our reputation on providing refined comforts and relaxed adventures in a spectacular natural setting. As a long-time member of the Dude Ranch Association, we take pride in serving you with warm, welcoming Western hospitality. While we offer traditional ranch pleasures, such as horseback trail rides guided by experienced wranglers, riding lessons, fishing, and fishing instruction, we also offer you a variety of other contemporary indulgences. Some of our unique activities include: skeet shooting, electric mountain biking, archery, yoga and whiskey tastings. With 600 acres and access to over 500,000 acres of public lands for riding and exploring, Greenhorn Ranch is ready to help you unwind and create lifelong memories.
You’re Invited to a Winter Bed & Breakfast Escape
For the first time, Greenhorn Ranch is opening our lodge during the winter so you can enjoy a very unique Bed & Breakfast experience. Our sprawling country casual 12-room, two-story lodge has everything you need for a cozy, comfortable getaway.
The accommodations have plenty of Western-influenced charm and the high thread-count bedding and plush blankets, mean you’ll stay warm and snug even on the chilliest evenings. The spacious downstairs has a grand public room, complete with an oversized wood-burning fireplace, plush leather seating and a variety of relaxed gathering spaces. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a spirited card game, read a book by the fire or share in conversation. Your stay includes a hearty self-serve continental breakfast. Of course all COVID cleaning protocols are in place to help protect your health and safety.
Winter at the Greenhorn Ranch is a time when the air is crisp, and the serenity of nature is a welcome relief from the cares of everyday life. Whether you are looking for some solitude, a romantic rendezvous, or a place to gather with friends and family, winter at the Greenhorn Ranch lodge is the perfect spot. Fill your days with simple pleasures like hiking, fishing and (if the weather permits) nearby snowshoeing, or cross country skiing. We look forward to welcoming you.
With much warmth,
I loved hanging out with guest and employees together in the afternoons before dinner. Waking up to the view of the lake in the morning from our cabin could never get old.
