Six nutritious and delicious meals provided by the abundant ranch gardens per day. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free are available options.

Campfire

Mayacamas Ranch was once a gathering center for the Wappo Native Americans, where they conducted ceremonies, rituals, and rites of passages. Their staff will arrange all the kindling and supplies for you.

Games

Mayacamas Ranch's expansive lawn, surrounded by breathtaking views, becomes the perfect setting for all types of ball games, including baseball, football, badminton, and volleyball. In addition, horseshoes, frisbee throwing, and kite flying are favorite activities for many at the ranch.

Hiking

Mayacamas Ranch's hiking trails range from easy to intermediate and wind through chaparral, fragrant bay, and madrone forests, and a natural spring.

Swimming and fishing

Mayacamas Ranch's exclusive, secluded hidden lake features a picnic area and hiking trails. Fishing for bass in the lake is also permitted so long as its catch and release.

Swimming and soaking

Surrounded by 360 degree views of Mount Saint Helena and the Mayacamas mountains, take in some of the most breathtaking views in the wine region while lounging and swimming in the salt water pool. Swimming in a mild saline solution is much like taking a shower in soft water. In a salt water pool, the water feels smooth, your skin feels smooth, and many people feel more refreshed. Festive gatherings can also be arranged poolside. Soak in Mayacamas Ranch's relaxing Jacuzzi, a perfect place to start or end your day.

Organic garden and sun deck

Explore the Mayacamas organic garden, full of cutting flowers and many of the fruits and vegetables are in the recipes they cook for you. The garden is closed to outside fake nutrients (a.k.a chemical fertilizers) and instead embraces the natural cycle or system that is contained in an organic garden. The garden is home to close to 50 raised beds for growing vegetables. In addition, it is well populated with ornamental perennial plants and fruit trees, appealing to all senses. You may also enjoy views of the garden from the sun deck off the lodge.

Enjoy a Reiki session or treat yourself to a massage for an additional cost and can be booked one week prior to arrival or during the retreat, subject to availability.
