Le logement

(Closed in winter) Enjoy vast vistas, immense skies, and solitude at the historic Long Ranch, in Surprise Valley...where the pavement ends and The Mystery begins. This small working ranch encompasses 320 acres of high desert ranchland on the far NE edge of California, just over the Nevada border. High rimrock tablelands of the Hays Range, towering peaks of the Warner Mts, springfed pastures and desert sand dunes are your welcoming views from a private rustic cabin. This cabin has off-grid electricity for lighting and internet, and good water which flows from a natural warm (80 degree) spring up the mountain. Shade trees and lawn surround a beautiful warm-spring pool for your enjoyment. Wander the ranch grounds, sit on an old corral fence, hike the nearby canyons and mesas of the Hayes Range or across the valley up into The Warner Wilderness, seek out the local wild hot springs, or just relax, absorb the magic, and have an epiphany or two...

Accès des voyageurs

Bathhouse, swimming pool and surrounding lawn, adjacent corrals and most of property are open for guest access. (The pasture is usually hosting 80 head of cattle, so visiting w them is possible, though not recommended...). The old ranch house, the new studio, the workshop, storage sheds, and ranch equipment and any posted areas are not open for guest incursions w/o invite...(A 25' Airstream w bed & electricity is available potentially, as an extra space -- no kitchen...)

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Available for help/advice/info, if needed... (if I'm not around, a family I'm partnering with will be here to assist.) Also might I be available for inspiration/painting critiques/sympathy/praise/badinage, when appropriate . Possibly available for plein-air painting lessons, if in the mood...

Le quartier

The neighborhood is totally devoid of humans (present company excepted..) Lots of mountains, trees, grass, sage, rabbits, coyotes, birds,


Long Ranch is 17 miles east of Cedarville, California, on Cty Rd 37, accessed by Hwy 299 (paved) for seven miles and ten miles on a well maintained gravel road. A vehicle is required to reach the property. No public transportation is available. A small airfield is located near Cedarville.

Autres remarques

The internet usually works, kind of slow tho. Cell phones maybe -- Verizon is best carrier, others not so good to non-existent service...

IMPORTANT: Please don't bring/use any electric devices that use/produce heat -- toaster, coffee/espresso maker, tea kettle, elect pad or blanket, hair dryer, heater -- my electric system will not handle the extra load!

Don't get stuck out here w/o gas/water. Don't drive too fast on the dirt roads ( too fast is over 45-50). Watch what you're doing, where you're walking. Try not to do anything too stupid -- it's a long way to town. Be very cautious w fire. (That includes not smoking cigarets, inside or outside....)

To repeat....this ranch is really remote , off-grid, NOT your typical corporate Ritz-Carleton "Western" dude ranch "experience".... solitude, dust, various types of free-range organic wild critters in wild country, not always too close to safety (similar to hiking/camping in wilderness, except you hopefully still have access to a vehicle, not to mention a swimming pool, electricity, a fully operable kitchen,internet, etc, etc....)

John's ranch is an exceptionally special place - secluded, beautiful, magical. The Great Basin offered endless adventures, and John's home, the peaceful oasis we were craving.

Wonderful quiet getaway in surprise valley. The deck of my cabin was right up against a lovely wetland area with tons of birds and a gorgeous view of the Warners. A great place to work on a writing project!

My fiancé and I spent a magical thanksgiving here. The place was as described - a sweet cabin with a wood stove (love!) and amazing views. The cabin has large windows and we spent hours just looking at the mountains! There is a great porch for watching as well. The grounds are beautiful and our dog had the best time running around with John's dog Harley (as you can see from other reviews, everyone loves this dog!) John suggested a hike and Harley came with us (and was our dog guide!) we also drove into Cedarville (a wonderful drive) and chatted with the locals. There is a grocery store there too. A great place to relax and unwind from city living. Lots of magic in Surprise Valley to be uncovered.

Beautiful location, just as remote as we'd hoped, but still within easy driving distance of quaint Cedarville. The cabin itself is quite rustic but with beautiful views, a wood stove that keeps the place nice and warm, and a good kitchen where we made most of our meals. Don't miss the 'dunes' on the edge of the playa, really other-worldly and well worth exploring! Harley, the dog, is super sweet and my daughter misses her already (she and the coyotes do make quite a bit of noise at night, light sleepers bring your ear plugs!). My children ages 3 and 6 loved exploring the surroundings and there's a separate room with a pull-out couch great for little people, it's nice to have two separate sleeping areas! We're looking forward to a next time, during a time of year where we can use the outdoor pool. John was a great host, thank you for all!

John’s ranch was the perfect antidote to our city lives in Portland. It was spectacular in every way and exactly what we needed to unwind. We extended our stay by 2 days and cancelled our 2nd road trip spot, knowing we would regret moving on. Surprise Valley is remote, friendly, and absolutely beautiful. It is quiet except for the sounds of cows, birds, coyotes, wind…nature. The expansive view out front of the cabin is stunning. We explored the area mountains and valleys, small towns, and soaked in the local hot spring (amazing). The schoolhouse cabin is rustic (John’s description and photos are very accurate) and cozy. It was a pleasure cooking meals in the simple kitchen and sitting by the wood stove. We brought most of our food with us, but the grocery store in Cedarville was a great resource and was very well stocked. We truly enjoyed John’s company, life perspective, and his incredible art studio. Harley, his cheerful dog, and ranch kitties were also a treat. His ranch is a hidden gem rich in history. I could spend days just poking around the property discovering old treasures. We hope to return. Thank you.

John was the perfect host! I spent 6 nights at his serene ranch and couldn't have been happier with the experience. His place is indeed remote, which is exactly what I wanted. The only sights and sounds are of nature. And the cabin, while rustic, had all the amenities I needed. I was able to cook nice meals in the fully stocked kitchen. Mostly I spent a lot of time sitting on the patio watching the cows with one of his friendly cats as company. He also has a sweet dog named Harley who came by every day to say hello. If you're looking to get away from it all, it's the perfect place to stay.

This was a wonderful place to be away from our digital clutter, relax, stargaze, hike, swim, and hang out. We unfortunately did not get to meet John but his friend was a great host and their dog is a spunky, protective, bundle of joy! Will go back!

Raised on a ranch in an idyllic valley S of Reno (went to a one room schoolhouse even). After high school took off for parts less known: Stanford, Antioch,the Haight-Ashbury scene, then an isolated homestead in far northern British Colombia for 5 yrs, hanging w the moose and grizzlies and wolves, getting a tutorial in elemental existence. Too wet, though, returned to SF, started oil painting (MFA,SFAI), survived the punk scene there in the late 70's -- early 80's. Thence off to the East Village in NYC where I almost drowned in the hyper- fermented art world for 5 years, back again to SF, marriage, beautiful a great union gig installing trade shows/conventions at SF's Moscone Center (one of the job's great advantages being your schedule can be customized to your personal desires). Early on I picked up a nice old house in SF , made an art studio in the store front, rented out the eight upstairs bedrooms , added a speakeasy in the basement (we called it The Undisclosed Location for awhile, had bands, etc...). Concurrently became a frequent part-time local in the spectacular Surprise Valley in the far NE corner of CA, starting in the early 80's ( I needed a respite fr constant urbanity), bought an abandoned cheese factory there as a country get-away/studio, sold that for an abandoned oasis/ranch 15 years ago, been refurbishing ever since... Mostly I hole up at the ranch these days, except for frequent brief trips back to SF to see my daughter/friends (& perhaps to look askance at the latest trends among the foodies and the techies, if I'm so inclined...). For a loner ,I am a pretty gregarious (perhaps somewhat eccentric at this point, I'm not the one to say...) character who enjoys the beauty and solitude and magic where I live. I'm appreciative of creative self-aware individuals and free-thinkers of all types,and seem to have an affinity for artists/writers/musicians , judging by my many friendships... Also I have had a life-long interest in Eastern religions and practices (been to India and Nepal, also Europe, Mexico and Guatemala), and I value a mindful and contemplative and compassionate (and humorous!) approach to our shared endeavors here on this whirling orb. And I still am doing paintings, so you might get a studio visit, if we like..
