Welcome to the River Ranch, a property that offers both tranquility and recreational appeal like no other. When pulling up to the private driveway's custom iron gate, guests are given a sneak peek into the impressive collections within the ranch. From museum caliber taxidermy and tanned hide furniture, vintage metal and neon signage, antique farm equipment, and classic cars from several bygone eras, River Ranch has it all. Many of these collectibles came from the famous Ponderosa Ranch. The main house is expansive yet cozy, with multiple entertainment spaces, nestled inside a sweet farmhouse exterior. Painted in light yellow and sage green, the house is trimmed with scallop edging and heart-shaped-cut-out fencing and shutters for a charming effect. Enjoy a cup of tea in front of the fireplace in the elegant sitting room, watch movies in the den, or seek personal respite in one of the two bedrooms upstairs. A pergola-covered patio provides a wonderful outdoor dining area, complete with barbecue grill, while the expansive wood deck provides easy indoor-outdoor entertaining access. Adjacent to the main house is a workshop and great room that are one of a kind. Anchored by a spectacular stone fireplace, the ranch’s great room is the perfect place to entertain large or small gatherings alike. Multiple seating areas provide intimacy and natural flow, while pool and poker tables, upright piano, and large solid wood bar fuel the room's exuberant atmosphere. The great room’s stainless steel diner-style kitchen is both nostalgic and functional, with plenty of storage, prep space, and a 12 foot counter with seating. The guest house next door is fully contained it features a rock masonry hearth with wood stove and gas heating. In addition the knotty pine walls and ceilings offers endless vintage charm. The ranch includes quality outbuildings and corrals for ranch equipment and livestock. The shop currently used for housing the classic car collection, tractors, and equipment, and the original functioning three-story barn complete the ranch. The River Ranch offers an incredible array of outdoor sporting pursuits including horse-back riding, four wheeling, hiking the property’s many trails and hills, mountain biking, hunting, and fishing. Local wildlife include deer, turkey, and wild hogs. A number of avian species call the area home as well, including doves, quail, several hawk species, vultures, owls, and even winter populations of bald eagles. The ranch is flanked by nearly 1.3 miles of Cache Creek river frontage, having miles of private roads and numerous swimming holes along the river. The ranch is only an hour from Sacramento and two hours from San Francisco. This convenient proximity to major metropolitan areas makes River Ranch an ideal weekend getaway, corporate retreat, dude ranch, or hunting and cattle operation. The ranch is located in the north end of the Capay Valley in the town of Rumsey. Home to many organic farms and orchards, there is an abundance of agriculture throughout the entire valley.
