Welcome To The Lodge At Oak Creek Ranch

Retreat and Family Reunion Testimonials

Notes from our friends...

"Driving into the Ranch evokes a physiological response that can only be described as overwhelming calm. The profoundly beautiful landscape is combined with the assurance that you have arrived at a place that will shield you from the demands and distractions of every day life."
- C.D., Northern California

Pictures do not do this place justice! Thank you so much for everything! Every last detail was thought of, and this place is very well planned. If one word would describe your place and our experience there, it would be "amazing."

I just returned home from our family reunion there last night, and now have the "Oak Creek Ranch" state of mind. Truly a nature lover's dream, and something for everyone at every age. All of us truly enjoyed ourselves. It was a weekend of a lifetime. I'm really going to miss the resident rabbit that lives outside the dining hall, all the birds, and deer. The trails surrounding the property provided great views and lovely walks.

Please know how grateful we all are and thank you for the wonderful experience. I'd really love to come back sometime in the near future.

Thanks again!

"The Nelsons have something incredibly special there. The term that comes to mind in describing it is "magical." It is an excellent venue for enhancing the corporate strategic planning process. In my personal experience, I believe that Oak Creek Ranch is truly an exceptional venue for retreats, not just by local standards but by statewide standards."

Our teacher group of 12 has been taking a getaway retreat for the lasts 14 years together. We used to make the long drive to Tahoe because we had found the perfect house. But Oak Creek Ranch is all that it was and more. We love the remoteness, the pool, the space, the darling European dining area and we will be back next year!
