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.

COVID 19 Safety at Greenhorn Ranch

At the Greenhorn Ranch we take the heath and safety of Cowboys, Cowgirls and Buckaroos very seriously. Although the Greenhorn Ranch is naturally socially distanced by our glorious 600 acres, we have implemented new policies and procedures exceeding current CDC Guidelines.

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,

Cynthia Carreon
Ranch Manager

One of our favorite parts at the end of the day on the trail is grabbing a drink in the saloon. If you’re lucky you’ll get a wrangler to tell you a story or two and maybe even karaoke.
