Mayacamas Ranch has guest units and cottages situated in various buildings on the property. Each unit has its own temperature control system for your comfort, and the bedding is 100% organic.


The equinox is a time of balance, with equal hours of day and night, light and dark. It's a perfect time to let go of the past and of the winter season and set positive intentions for the new Fall season, through guided meditations and inner reflection, opening yourself up to new possibilities and creations.

The yoga classes will be a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, linking movements with the breath, moving your body through both Power and Restorative poses. Classes will be theme-based, creative, and balanced and will incorporate pranayama (breathing), strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. You will experience a safe and nurturing practice where the focus is on the connection of movement with the breath, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized. All levels are welcome and encouraged.

Mayacamas Ranch's exclusive, secluded hidden lake features a picnic area and hiking trails. Fishing for bass in the lake is also permitted so long as you catch and release.


Mayacamas Ranch's expansive lawn, surrounded by breathtaking views, becomes the perfect setting for all types of ball games, including baseball, football, badminton, and volleyball. In addition, horseshoes, Frisbee throwing, and kite flying are favorite activities for many at the Ranch.

Organic garden and sun deck

Explore the Mayacamas organic garden, full of cutting flowers and many of the fruits and vegetables used to cook local foods. The garden is home to 50 raised beds for growing vegetables and it is well populated with ornamental perennial plants and fruit trees, appealing to all senses. You may also enjoy views of the garden from the sun deck off the lodge.

Swimming and soaking

Surrounded by 360 degree views of Mount Saint Helena and the Mayacamas mountains, take in some of the most breathtaking views in the wine region while lounging and swimming in the salt water pool.
