Mayacamas Ranch, Calistoga California

Family Programs

A Unique Setting for Families to Renew, Reflect and Connect

fam_comp_b500pxImagine a place where children are able to deeply connect with themselves and others in nature. A place where adults can relax and recharge as well as engage in meaningful conversation. Somewhere grown ups and kids can play together, and at times be separate. And most importantly, a place where families can be removed from daily life and nurtured in a truly special environment.

Located on a hilltop above the town of Calistoga surrounded by awe-inspiring views, Mayacamas Ranch offers a unique getaway for large family gatherings filled with deep connections, rare beauty, and unforgettable moments.

The Ranch is an ideal location for:

  • Weekend and weekday getaways (just 80 minutes from The Bay Area and Sacramento, and a quick flight from LA, Portland and Seattle to nearby Santa Rosa)
  • A great summer escape (family-camp style with other families)
  • Celebrations (e.g., birthdays and weddings)
  • Family gatherings (e.g., large family reunions)

Activities include:

  • Swimming or lounging poolside with views spanning four counties
  • Exercising: hiking and trail running are popular outdoor activities
  • Playing: fishing, nature exploration, and a wide variety of ball games
  • Family dining, including delicious meals, followed by a campfire under the stars
