WEEKEND GETAWAY - An extended weekend is the perfect time to escape the bubble of town and head to a ranch. Here you can be catered for among a small group of people, enjoy the fresh air and still have luxury accommodations.
Arrive at Ranch
With your mid-afternoon arrival you have the time to explore the ranch on foot. Discover the ranch facilities including the swimming pool, exercise room, game room, sauna and more. After your self-guided orientation, make your way to the main house for dinner with the rest of the guests!
Enjoy the Valley
This morning, limber up with an on-site yoga stretching session. Breathe in the fresh valley air and enjoy the natural surroundings as you prepare for your day.
After limbering up, and nourishing on a local breakfast, take to the valley. A 2-hour guided hike will introduce you to lake country with all its creeks and waterways. Often filled with spawning fish (spring), Marsh Wrens, Yellow Headed Blackbirds, Sandhill Cranes and various ducks you will enjoy what nature has to offer.
Return to the ranch for a local and freshly prepared buffet lunch. Use this time to connect with other guests.
After lunch, there is the option for enjoying spa facilities, taking a bike for some mountain biking (free of charge) or going fly fishing.
Enjoying the Valley
This morning enjoy your morning yoga stretching session before again dining with your fellow guests at the ranch in a hearty breakfast!
A safari through the valley gives you the opportunity to see local ecosystems and see the Chinese cultural heritage.
