When you think about California a dude ranch vacation may not be the first vacation choice that immediately comes to mind but “The Golden State” has several Western dude ranches to choose from and Coffee Creek Ranch is just one of them. Located in the Trinity Alps wilderness area you will find snow-capped mountains, cascading waterfalls, lush meadows, sparkling lakes and one of Northern California’s finest guest ranches. The most popular activity at Coffee Creek Ranch is horseback riding. The ranch breeds its own AQHA and Paint horses for guests to use on one of their two scheduled rides per day. You can choose from the “Breakfast Ride” or the all-day “Wilderness Ride” that takes guests to a picturesque lake. For the more adventurous the all-day ride can be extended into an overnight pack trip that returns the next day. With access to over 833 miles of scenic trails picture-postcard views of the Trinity Alps Wilderness area await you. Be sure to pack your camera!
Other activities include mountain hiking and biking, swimming in a heated pool, soaking in the outdoor Jacuzzi, badminton, volleyball, horseshoes, pedal boating, table tennis, gold panning and basketball. You can also test your skills at the rifle and archery range. Bingo, square & line dancing, Karaoke and a talent show round off the fun list of activities that guests can choose from while staying at the ranch. Accommodations at the ranch feature secluded, rustic, cozy cabins. One ranch house room and one cabin is handicapped friendly and most of the family cabins have wood burning stoves that are just perfect to set the mood for a “romantic weekend getaway” for couples. Meals are prepared by professional chefs who provide nutritious cuisine using only the freshest herbs, vegetables and fruits that utilize the garden to table concept whenever possible. Daily menus are planned and prepared keeping in mind both children’s tastes and the hearty appetites of the adults in the family. Special diets from Gluten-free to Vegan can be accommodated if notified in advance so that the ranch can have your food products available in their pantry. So next time you are thinking about booking a vacation why not consider Coffee Creek Ranch in the beautiful state of California?
