Recently I celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday at the Marble Mountain Ranch. Searching for a unique and fun experience, I found Marble Mountain Ranch on the web looking for a ranch in Northern California. I was impressed with the website, which showed everything from the wonderful food to the many activities. So I booked the trip sight un-seen. My daughter... More

My son and I were fortunate enough to enjoy the last of 2013’s summer 5-day-stays, and we made memories which will forever bring smiles to our faces. Where else but Marble Mountain Ranch can one learn how to load a musket in the early morning, then play games with the horses in the arena, enjoy a luscious “snack,” take a... More

This place opened the doors to my fire crew. Every breakfast and dinner was a meal to remember. I never been so full in my life haha. The ranch was well kept and had lovely dogs to greet us every time we arrived. This place had hard to find hospitality. Don't tell my mom but the food might be able... More

There seems little point repeating other reviews - they are all accurate. I would mention the riding - it is an equaliser to ride western style because our English style riding, in fact, was no advantage, at least in the arena. But what fun! The days are full, riding and shooting in the morning, the river or fishing in the... More

Hello Meercat_chipmunk! I hope your return home was pleasant and uneventful! Thank you for all of your kind comments. As for the repeating of past comments - you just may show enough aptitude to be sponsored into the Somes Bar department of redundancy located in Somes Bar. As you may know, this was the precursor to the Somes Bar Liar's... More

It's true what other reviewers have said, it is difficult to know where to start. We only arrived home yesterday, after a crazy long journey down the 101, but I feel compelled to write about this experience. I am quite overwhelmed by how it made me feel, almost wanting to buy a horse and give up the whole city living... More

Can't say enough about our 5 days at the ranch. So fun. So filled with new experiences and firsts for our family. So filled with laughter and joy and great food and wonderful hosts and their family. As a family, we had extremely limited experience with horses, zero experience with shooting/archery, and pretty limited experience in white water rafting and... More

Hello Edward! What wonderful comments you have shared! Thank you for your thoughts. You have touched on a key point of our week that I would like to elaborate: the progression through the week to more challenging events. We walk a fine line at the ranch, in offering participatory events that are safe, yet exciting. I think the key for... More

So, I recall your comments about our home-made cinnamon buns served at one of our morning "bakery brunches"....do they not have these in Australia? I am so shocked! But, I hope we were able to introduce a large range of authentic western cuisine to you and your family. I think I mentioned this to you during your stay, but: Why... More

The entire Cole family are a true joy to be around! My daughter and I could not have felt more welcome at their ranch.

Hi Carrie L, Thank you for your great review! You can tell your daughter that she may in fact have a second home...since our kids are grown and we are needing to replenish the labor pool.
