You’ll love Sun Dog Ranch because of the solitude and outdoor spaces. The eclectic ranch has infinity pool with stunning views. Entertaining is a delight with a large gourmet kitchen and open floor plan. Large pool patio with extra seating. Ranch is a easy drive to town, 12 miles from north Chico. No parties or events (no matter how small) allowed as of 10/18/2020 due to Airbnb global party ban. Sundog Ranch is professionally cleaned and follows Airbnb enhanced cleaning protocol.

The space
From the moment you drive onto the ranch property, park, exit your car and catch a glimpse of the views beyond the house you will know you are in a special place. You then enter through a stone columned trellis to the front door and step into the stone front entry. You will instantly feel at home. The house has a bird shaped floor plan. Great room and kitchen in the body and master bedroom and quest rooms are in opposite wings. The cement floors with radiant heat are very comfortable in the winter. The great room has large indoor stone fireplace inset. 7 ft stone columns frame the windows to the outdoor view. The 8 ft ceilings make home feel large. The solid knotty alder doors, molding and windows add a rustic feeling. The house is warm and inviting. Jo's equine fine art graces most walls. Both bathrooms have soaking tubs as well as showers. The large gourmet kitchen overlooks the great room with views over the infinity pool, Rock Creek canyon, the valley and coastal range in the distance. In the cool fall and winter months sit by the indoor or outdoor fire. When clear you may see a snow capped coastal range. In the warm summer months lay by or float in the infinity pool. There is an outdoor and indoor grill. Kids love visiting visit the ranch animals. Mainly the goats and donkey who LOVE treats. Jo will facilitate. There is a large open area covered with wood chips near the barn with a large fire pit. We are on the edge of a preserve/wilderness so mountain lion, bears, coyotes, fox and bobcats live here too. Although bear and mountain lion rare to see. Sun Dog is solar powered.

During your stay

I will greet the guests upon arrival unless I am traveling. In that case I will arrange for someone else to check you in. If I am home on the property I will only be seen or heard if needed for any questions or problems. I keep a low profile. I do stay on the property away from the home in a trailer down by the horse pasture near the barn. You may see or me or another caretaker from afar doing morning chores or feeding the ranch animals in the mornings and evenings. Guests and especially the children are welcome to come down to the barn when someone is there to say hello to the ranch animals.
