We just spent a lovely long weekend at Greenhorn Ranch and already miss the peace and quiet greatly. The place is so quaint with the loveliest staff who make you feel like part of the family - just because that is what they are like. We enjoyed great rides in the beautiful forest and lovely horses (not the typical tourist half dead horses), camp fires with sing alongs, Smores, goat petting, walks and falling asleep early in the silence. We did not have enough time to fish one of the many trout in the pond but my husband saw an eagle dive down and "fish" a trout right out of the water. Plumas County is a well kept secret by Tahoe and we hope to be back. The accomodation is simple but clean and the food hearty and plenty. A wonderful time!
