This is long overdue but my wife and I vacationed here back in mid-September as we wanted a smaller group from the summer crowds. My wife also wanted to find a dude ranch within a day's drive from our home and one that didn't require all day horseback riding. Heidi & Doug's ranch exceeded our expectation and one of the...

My friend and I have been fishing the Klamath River for the last 8 years with other guides. We thought we would try Marble Mountain Ranch this year because we saw the excellent reviews by guests of the ranch. Our risk was rewarded Big Time! What a place! Doug and Heidi are an exceptional host/hostess with remodeled, comfortable, complete private...

Doug and Heidi (the ranch proprietors) are the stuff of which the pioneering American spirit is made. They made us feel welcome, like they really meant it. Heidi's cuisine was wholesome, fresh and tasted like the best of home-cooking. We rode horses, whitewater rafted and did some target shooting. In all these activities we felt in expert hands, with a...

Marble Mountain Ranch is a family owned rustic ranch. The food was delicious and always enough available to fill my 16 year old son's appetite. The rooms were clean and well air-conditioned (mid-90 outside during the day). There was always a full day of activities with a courteous staff attentive to your needs. Doug and Heidi were always attentive to...

All our kids and grand kids had the best vacation ever. The days were plant out from morning till late afternoon, till happy hour. We all enjoyed the home cooked meals by Heidi and the shooting lessons by Doug. The cabins are very comfortable and clean. We highly recommend MMR to all our friends R & E Engert

My family of three was looking for an active vacation that offered a wide range of activities. We found it at Marble Mountain. From trail riding to river rafting and shooting, everyone learned new skills as they participated in fun activities. We really appreciated that every day was a little different and more complex that allows us to build on...

Five fun days with my almost-15 year old grandson. A very busy time, with many scheduled activities, which, at first, I thought would be a drag. It turned out to be a blast. Kept busy doing fun, exciting and challenging things, many new to us. What I love about this kind of vacation is that once you arrive, you just...

My family of eleven decided to celebrate my fathers 80th birthday at a dude ranch (it's always been a dream of his). When arriving at MMR, we were instantly greeted by Doug and Heidi, who treated and cared for us beyond our expectations. From the water rafting, shooting range, horse trails, to homemade meals and comfortable cabins - we enjoyed...

My family of four spent a very enjoyable week at the Marble Mountain Ranch in July 2016. Our two kids (ages 8 and 11) cannot stop talking about how much fun they had and want to return next year. The daily activities are non-stop and are led mostly by seasonal staff that were great with the kinds, particularly Kego and...

We spent a week at Marble Mountain Ranch starting July 4. I can’t say enough good things about the Ranch, the owners and their staff. Even though we were busy for most of the day, it was probably the most relaxing vacation that I have ever had. Doug and Heidi are fantastic hosts. Their dedication to making the ranch memorable...
