The SpaceWelcome to the ranch! Established in 2005, the White Mammoth Ranch is a 5 acre ranch with goats, sheep, chickens, dogs, and cats. Designed with the size "mammoth" in mind, this 3 story house is 5,000+ sq. ft. with a 3,000 sq. ft. patio and wrap-around porch. Your hostess, Denise, designed and acted as General Contractor on this ranch. Her wonderful husband, John, grew up in the Central Valley and can help steer your travels.
Your 750 sq. ft. Master Bedroom includes a Jacuzzi bath tub, 6 foot wide dual-headed shower, queen size bed, couch with hide-a-way bed, and 37" flat screen HD TV. The bathroom is furnished with a hair dryer, shampoo and soap, fresh towels, and small items that you may have forgotten to pack. You will have total access to the common areas of the house which include living room with wood fireplace, sunlit library, extended patio with BBQ and picnic table, and gourmet sized kitchen for you to prepare your meals. Tea and coffee are always available. Laundry on site that you can use if you need to for an additional fee of $5.
Enjoy your farm experience by petting and feeding the goats and sheep, pick your own farm-fresh eggs (you cook), and star gaze away from city lights.
We really look forward to meeting you and hope that you enjoy our ranch as much as we do! Guest AccessOnce you are checked in, come & go as you please. No curfew.
