Ranch at the Canyons
On the Crooked River between Smith Rock and Coyote Butte, its 1,700 acres of verdant meadowland overlook four dramatic, distinctive canyons that offer easy access to a private world of recreational enjoyment and panoramic splendor. The Cascade Mountains shield this Northwest property from the rains of Western Oregon, providing nearly 300 days of sunshine a year while creating a temperate climate that enables flowers, orchards and vineyards to grow on 600 acres of irrigated farmland – all attended to by a dedicated staff. From the perspective of a homeowner, it's a working country estate without the work.
The Ranch draws its name from the dramatic canyons that define the neighboring landscape. None is more recognizable than the one named for the Monkey Face rock spire that attracts climbers, photographers and artists from around the world. This unmistakable landmark is part of neighboring Smith Rock State Park directly across the Crooked River from the Ranch. On the Ranch and across the river hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers enjoy many miles of spectacular trails. Black Rock, Red Rock and Pinnacle Canyons also rise along the Crooked River, all contributing to the Ranch's signature leadership among Central Oregon's exclusive properties.
No detail has been overlooked and no expense spared in maintaining the natural character of Ranch at the Canyons. More than 500 acres have been permanently deeded in trust to natural conservation. Wildlife, such as elk, geese, hawks and eagles, abounds on the Ranch; deer graze in the meadows each day. The Ranch's extensive private river frontage and many lakes provide a healthy environment for resident fly anglers.
The Old Winery Clubhouse & Fly-Fishing Lakes
The Old Winery Clubhouse was designed to serve as the social center of the Ranch offering a warm and hospitable environment for exercise, spa and health activities as well as family gatherings, reunions, business meetings, private dining or wine tasting and other social events. The Clubhouse is located on a natural rock outcropping and offers dramatic 360-degree views of Teal Lake, Smith Rock and the snow-capped Cascade Mountains.
Fly fishing enthusiasts will find a wealth of year-round angling options on the Ranch. Cast along the Crooked River in the early morning shadows of Smith Rocks. Then dig into the fly box to fish one of the more than a dozen lakes managed as part of a trophy bass and trout fishery. Ranch land holders have private access for fly fishing along more than two miles of the Crooked River. There is also fly fishing for bass and rainbow trout on the numerous lakes and ponds of the Ranch including two cold-water lakes designed to yield trophy trout. Deep Canyon Outfitters-Orvis Endorsed Expeditions is the exclusive fly fishing guide service at the Ranch.
Tuscan Stables & Vineyards
The Stables skillfully blend Tuscan/Napa design with Ranch ambiance and commands sweeping vistas of surrounding lakes, mountains, canyons and Smith Rock. The unique architectural design evokes the peaceful image of old-world Italy while alluding to the easy, pleasant lifestyle associated with residence in the Napa wine country. The Ranch's Monkey Face Vineyard is respected as the pioneer grape growing venue in all of Central Oregon. The first commercial quantity wine made 100% from a single Central Oregon grape varietal owes its heritage exclusively to our vineyard. Several hardy French-American hybrid varietals selected specifically for Central Oregon conditions mature each Fall at the vineyard, where residents take part in the harvest. The Ranch's full time manager applies his experience from many years in the California wine country to oversee the vineyard and bottling activities.
