I will never, ever forget my trip to Highland Ranch. It was a life changing experience and I know that I will be back again. You drive up a winding dirt road canopied by huge trees. As you get to the end of the road, the most beautiful ranch opens up at the end of the road. Sprawling meadows, a great barn and the cutest most picturesque main yellow house. There were hammocks outside where you can lounge and have an afternoon glass of local wine.
The food was excellent and you feel like your being welcomed into a relatives house for dinner. The atmosphere is lively, loving and a home away from home.
The cabins are older, classic ranch style. No frills, so don't expect the Ritz. However, I could not have asked for a better weekend getaway.
Horse back riding, hikes in the Redwoods and wine tasting...the perfect weekend.
You can also arrange for a private dinner up by the pond...how romantic!
