Explore the ranch on horseback or hike the bordering high desert. Fish to your heart's content in the ranch reservoirs; or spend a relaxing afternoon reading on the verandah, pitching horseshoes in the yard, or practicing your roping skills and playing ping-pong in the old barn recreation area.
Hey, don't forget M13232 is located in the heart of one of the Northwest's most scenic recreation areas. Golf courses manicured to perfection abound, whitewater rafting awaits the adventurous. Roaming the antique and quilt stores of Sisters, a true town from the Old West just minutes away, revives the spirit.
M13232 is also an authentic working cattle ranch, so live those cowboy dreams by working with ranch hands on authentic ranch activities from fixing fence to moving irrigation to working with cattle.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
What a lovely place to stay. The rooms have great views of the property and are very comfortable. Getting up in the morning you see the cattle grazing on the land which helps you to forget your troubles. Dick and Shirley are gracious hosts and do everything possible to make your stay memorable. We were very fortunate to have a group from Washington staying with us and one of them (Ian) cooked a great English Breakfast! This is an Inn not to be missed and one to go back to many times even if you are there only to unwind.
