My niece found this place for our family reunion June 30-July 2, 2014. We filled up most of the cabins with about 40 people and it was quite reasonably priced. The cabins were rustic, but we're used to camping and this is definitely a step up with private bathrooms and kitchens. We loved not having to deal with cooking, and... More

Stunning scenery, peaceful surroundings, glorious walks and trails, warm hosts, delicious home-cooked fresh food. Comfortable rooms - a bit tired around the edges but that's part of its charm. It's rustic but a great place to relax and allow the serenity to enter your soul.

Mountain Home Ranch is surrounded by beautiful woods including an ancient redwood tree. It has trails leading through redwood groves, and past breathtaking views. John and Suzanne are both kind, thoughtful and very willing to accommodate. They offer wonderful organic food grown on the site and a relaxed atmosphere to get lost in. There are two pools, and a crew... More

A rustic style place with tasty organic food, plain rooms, friendly staff. The ranch is rather far away from the city of Calistoga, so you have to have a car if you want to go out for shopping or dining.

Overall: This place is unique, interesting, and fun, but could desperately use some serious improvements. We probably won't go back. We knew it would be rustic but were still not really impressed. Pros: - Beautiful grounds. You can hike on the trails and see some great views. It's fun to feed the cows and goats and visit the chickens. If... More

We are terribly sorry for the bad experience, and would be happy to make amends. This was unfortunate. The cabin they stayed in is our oldest. We put a limit of four people on the cabin, but rarely allow more than three. We did not know there were to be five people coming, and they arrived late, picking up an... More

If you are wanting a "down to earth" experience after being in La La land in the Napa Valley this is the place. Emphasis is on being around natural beauty not landscaped gardens. our room was Grandpa's and it was clean and the king size bed was very comfortable. It was very quiet at night and the birds singing in... More

Mountain home ranch is not fancy, but it is very beautiful and John is a great host. I felt relaxed the moment I got there. We stayed in a cabin (Willows). The beds were good, the cabin was clean and well stocked. The kitchen area was very small with a tiny table, but we moved the table in the other... More

During 2013 and early 2014, I spent four weeks at the Ranch and each time my feet touched the ground, I felt like I had returned to my safe place. My room was comfortable in all seasons. The food was fresh, bountiful and healthy and most of all made with love. John's bread is worth coming back for. Suzanne and... More
