The Ranch is located in the heart of Jamestown, one of Northern California's most historic and beautiful small towns. After the gold rush of 1848, the Jamestown area became known as "California Gold Country" and still offers tourists the chance to pan for gold and tour gold mines on expeditions like the Gold Cliff Mine Adventure trip. Jamestown's location in the Sierra Nevada Foothills offers more than the quest for gold though; there are endless opportunities to enjoy everything from camping and boating to golf and wine tasting. New Melones Lake is a favorite for fishing and mountain biking while Calaveras Big Trees State Park offers camping, hiking, swimming, and picnicking areas. The nearby Dodge Ridge Ski Resort offers plenty of winter fun - from skiing to snowboarding to sledding. With their spectacular scenes of natural beauty, guided tours of the breathtaking underground caverns, such as the Moaning Cavern, never lose their appeal. For a relaxing afternoon, Sonora is always nearby, waiting to entice wine lovers with some of Northern California's finest vineyards. Just a short drive away, golfers can spend the day at the Pine Mountain Lake 18-hole championship Gold Country golf course and equestrians can take a guided "theme" ride on one of the stable's majestic horses. The only way to experience all that Jamestown has to offer is to see it for yourself - so enjoy the discovery of your new hometown when you make your move to The Ranch.
