During this retreat, you will be served daily delicious vegetarian meals. Special requests such as vegan or gluten-free are available on request. Fruits and vegetables from the organic garden at Mayacamas Ranch will be used in their recipes.
The organic garden is full of cutting flowers and many fruits and vegetables for the local recipes. The garden is closed to outside fake nutrients (chemical fertilizers) and instead embraces the natural cycle or system that is contained in an organic garden.
They also pay attention to the tenants of permaculture; care for earth, people, and shared surplus. In addition, throughout the garden you will find evidence of bio-intensive practices as shown by the use of the greenhouse, the efficient spacing of plants, companion planting, and the focus on soil building.
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.
Mayacamas Ranch hiking trails range from easy to intermediate and wind through chaparral, fragrant bay and Madrone forests, and a natural spring.
Mayacamas Ranch was once a gathering center for the Wappo Native Americans where they conducted ceremonies, rituals, and rites of passages. The staff will arrange all the kindling and supplies for you.
The expansive lawn, surrounded by breath taking 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.
An exclusive, secluded hidden lake features a picnic area and hiking trails. Fishing for bass in the lake is also permitted as long the fish is cached and released.
Surrounded by 360 degree views of Mount Saint Helena and the Mayacamas Mountains, you may take in some of the most breathtaking views in the wine region while lounging and swimming in a 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.
