We, family of 4 with two kids age 6 and 11, stayed for the first time at a dude ranch. Heidi, Doug and the rest of the crew were all very accommodating and we enjoyed a great week of horseback riding, river rafting and shooting. All of us had different highlights which shows how diverse the program is. The program... More

We were a party of three who had flown into Medford airport, Oregon from Santa Barbara, CA where we were picked up and taken to the ranch as part of the service. The ranch is set in some spectacular scenery right next to the Klamath river. During our stay we enjoyed the use of a cabin with two bedrooms, modern... More

I have been asked many times ," Where is my favorite place." Guess I have to say MARBLE MOUNTAIN RANCH! This was my 9th consecutive year, Some with family, some with friend, and some by myself. All have been wonderful. I have seen their family grow and sometimes move away, but it remains very much a "family". Their staff is... More

This was honestly the best vacation my wife and I have ever had. Although it is catered more towards families, we still had an absolute blast. It was the full outdoor experience of horseback riding, shooting, and rafting all in one great package. Heidi and Doug, as well as the wranglers, were extremely hospitable and paid great attention to detail.... More

The grounds are Beautiful, Relaxing, and we'll kept. Cabins are very comfortable, homie, and immaculate. I just love how the cabins are set so you can view the main part of the ranch right from the porch. Meals had variety and Best of all, Homemade. Delicious! Activities keep your day full and are geared so that everyone no matter their... More

Our family of 10 people (4 teenagers and 6 adults) spent the week from June 29th to july 4th at marble Mountain Ranch. It was a wonderful experience. The cabins - we had three of them- were clean, comfortable and fully air conditioned day and night. The food, homemade three meals a day, was excellent and all diet restrictions were... More

This was our first vacation to a dude ranch and our kids ages 15, 13 want to come back for all future summer trips. The Cole Family and their staff were fun, friendly and helpful. The daily trail rides and arena activities were great. The horses were obviously well taken care of. The shooting range was a big hit, especially... More

I love going to the ranch every summer. Everything is amazing there! I must point out that my favorite part was Doug's singing. It was utterly phenomenal. Amazing. Exemplary. His singing has filled my soul. Listening to him sing has been a zen-like experience. It has fulfilled my purpose and completed my being. I might even go on to say... More

Dear Polly, we seem to be having a rash of comments about Doug's singing since you have brought the topic up. So, in an an effort to further improve the customer experience at Marble Mountain Ranch, we on the quality assuredness team have sponsored Doug into the Humbold University music department voice classes. Unfortunately, he opted for the distance learning... More

Heidi and Doug and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming! There was something there for everyone. The kids (15,14, and 12) survived with no cell phones, tv or radio and did not even miss them. Great family memories!!

Hi Lori ! Getting disconnected from technology is a point that we consider key in our business model. Thanks for the business, and we will review your comments with the folks from Apple that visited a few weeks prior. They were not quite as successful as your family at disconnecting. Go figure! Cheers, Doug, Heidi, and the gang More
