This was our first trip to Cienaga Creek Ranch and it was wonderful! The no-hassle check in, tasty cinnamon rolls, and the friendly helpful staff made us feel right at home. Our cozy cottage (Ironwood) had all the amenities of a larger rental house but in a perfect wooded environment amongst the pines. The jetted tub, kind size bed, gas... More

My wife and I (and our dog) had a great time unwinding at the Cienaga Creek Ranch (specifically the Kopitch Cottage). We had no idea we would enjoy our time as much as we did. We were looking for something a little off the grid and isolated and we hit the jackpot with this place. EVERYTHING was taken care of.... More

I've visited Cienega Creek Ranch three times now with my doggers and I can't say enough great things about this little piece of heaven. I look forward to this winter retreat every year. It's very secluded, which is what I want. I can unplug (no cell reception or cable) and live with nature. Lots of daily hikes with the dogs,... More
