Irish Creek Ranch has just less than 60 acres. The homestead on the property was built and expanded over the years starting in about 1870. The property has been owned by the "Hurley-Schlein" family since 1919. They have been cattle people and have lived in the area since the 1850's. Maxine Hurley Smith was raised on the property and still continues in the cattle tradition with a small herd. There are other crops raised here; olives, peaches, apples, etc. The barn and garage were built in the early 20's by Maxine's uncle and grandfather. The total property was mined over the years during the Gold Rush.
The area, known as "The Divide" by locals, is strategically located. Coloma, were gold was discovered, is a short drive aware and the area is famous for rafting. Historical Georgetown is the home of the famous Jeepers Jamboree, an annual event into the Rubicican Trail. The county has over 60 winery tasting rooms, most at no cost. The horse trails are significant and close to the property as well. Also important on hot Summer days- the American River has water access for swimming.
But back at the ranch, Irish Creek Ranch, you'll have rolling hills, privacy, unique camp sites, and a relaxing atmosphere. A great weekend or weeklong retreat! Come visit!!
