Short Stay (when available)
During some weeks we offer the opportunity to come to the ranch without having to commit to a full week’s stay (check our Available dates page). Appropriately enough, we have called these the Short Stays. You can stay in a tent cabin for just an overnight (two-night minimum in a log cabin) or up to a week. Meals (dinner, breakfast, a sack lunch for the trail) are included in the Short Stay price. This is a popular option for JMT thru-hikers. If you are coming in from Florence Lake and don't wish to backpack in please contact us for information on our transporting your gear. Our normal luggage handling days are Saturdays and Wednesdays.
Log cabins • One double and one single bed, private bathroom (toilet/sink, cold running water). Two night minimum
Please check back in February for our 2018 rates, and check the Available Dates page for availability
Tent cabins• One double and one single bed. They share a nice outhouse that has a running water washbasin
