The SpaceShire Station Ranch is situated on a fenced-in four acres and is completely surrounded by 150 acres of pistachio and almond trees. If peace and quiet in a warm, comfortable, secluded country environment is what you seek, Shire Station Ranch is the perfect destination for you. We are a working horse ranch and nano-brewery and proudly showcase our majestic Shire Draft Horses and hand-crafted artisan ales.
The Shire Station B&B is a private, separate guesthouse centrally located in the middle of the ranch action. A total of 700 square feet, the guesthouse is equipped with a full kitchen including stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee machine, ¾ bathroom with standing shower, a full-sized closet (ironing board, iron, dresser), reading nook, and a small library of books for your reading pleasure. Outside and adjacent to the B&B entrance is a paved parking spot, private entryway, a seating area, as well as access to the 35,000 gallon pool (Summer only) and outdoor dining area. There is also a large fire pit is available for use on those chilly fall/spring evenings.
Guests can expect fresh baked homemade scones, orange juice, butter, lemon marmalade and granola included in our daily complimentary breakfast (you pick the time). Along with our chickens, we have five horses, a mule, three super friendly goats, a few barn kitties, and our fenced in hounds. Feeding time is rather enthusiastic, and our mule “3D” will likely announce mealtimes with a hearty bray. If you are late sleepers, we suggest you bring earplugs! Furthermore, you probably wont need your alarm clock, as our resident rooster, Henry, will provide reliable alarm service every morning at 0530 (or so).
Daily activities on the ranch include cleaning pastures, grooming and exercising horses, feeding goats, chickens and barn kitties. You are welcome to participate as much or as little as you like.
Guests are encouraged to roam and relax on the property, but access and feeding the horses is available only with prior arrangement. Please note the fencing that surrounds the horses is electric.
For you craft beer lovers, Shire Station Ranch is also home to Shire Station Brewing Company, LLC. We offer a complimentary beer tasting to all our guests in our small, but fully functional production brewery. For more information, please visit (URL HIDDEN)
