The ranch has been in the family since 1884. My wife is fifth generation. Wheat was grown in the same fields for a century. In 1900, wheat from those fields won the Gran Prix Gold Medal at the Paris Worlds Fair. We make whiskey from the wheat now.
There are barns built back in the 1860's, equipment and trucks from several generations of life on the ranch; history is preserved all around.
We have an oak tree that an arborist estimated is 600 years old. A creek that runs through the property (it held water last winter for the first time in years). The area has a rich and document history of Native Americans. Go for a hike in nearby Morgan Territory, which you can see from your tent, and read up on the history before you go.

A beautiful campsite during a heat wave, with a shady location under the oak trees and lots of birds (and lizards!) to keep us company. Horses were a lot of fun to watch. A wonderfully peaceful weekend.

Great getaway just 1 hour from SF and 15 mins to Livermore. The bungalow is cozy and has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including an outdoor cooking set up and outdoor shower. Albe was able to help me check in and told me a bit about the ranch. We loved the clear skies at night and abundance of animals! Also great to wander around the working ranch.

Magical ranch retreat
Magical ranch stay. Sleeping under the stars, among the animals, looking out on sweeping hills, in a super comfortable setup - what more could you want. My wife loved waking up to the horse, and my (20 m/o) daughter to the chickens. We chased bunnies in the day and listened to the owls at night. Albe was really accommodating, helpful, and easy going. And the local area has great scenery, hikes and peacefulness to go around.
