Testimonials about Maycamas Ranch:
“I just got back from a women’s retreat weekend. It was definitely a 5 star experience. It is so relaxing to go somewhere beautiful and relax. The food was amazing with lots of fresh organic produce, meats and fish. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The grounds are serene and beautiful. My retreat included yoga classes and meals. We arrived on Friday settled in and then had dinner. After dinner we gathered around the fire and socialized. The next day I had breakfast, yoga, lunch, a walk, paddling on the small lake, dinner, socializing, star gazing, followed by blissful sleep. Sunday morning we had breakfast and another yoga class before checking out. I came with a dear girlfriend and met some new friends while I was there. I loved the experience. It helped of course that the weather was amazing this weekend.” Jenn D
“Who loves mayacamas ranch? I DO! was there last weekend for a NYE yoga retreat that a yoga instructor set up. the calistoga ranch is GORGEOUS – well kept and serene. They have an organic garden/farm where some of our AMAZINGLY fresh vegetarian cuisine came from. The chef, and his staff, are amazing…4 days later, I still miss that food! the accommodations are just right. the beds are comfy – complete with great pillows, down comforters and cotton sheets/duvets. The outdoor pool and jacuzzi (both heated) are on a setting allowing you to see the beautiful mountains, valleys and wildlife all around you. We did yoga each day in a huge, hard-wood floor room with a gas fireplace. The surrounding windows let us see the gorgeous setting we were in…except when we were in downward dog sweating to death.I loved it – had no real idea what to expect (i’ve been to ranch la puerta spa in tecate, mexico…this places reminded me a little of that) and was delightfully surprised and constantly impressed. The owners are genuine and caring….big “love” button for that ranch.” Whitney
