"This a fabulous venue for group stays. My organization held a two day regional meeting at the Yokayo Ranch. Approximately 30 participants attended from northern California and Sacramento. Access to the ranch is super easy, and it sits adjacent to the Mendocino College campus. The main hall is perfect for work groups and for formal meals. The bedrooms are elegant with romantic views of Mendocino County hills and rural lands. We had numerous attendees say it was the best regional meeting they had ever attended. I give a lot of credit to the Yokayo Ranch owners and staff for making it such a relaxed and welcoming stay!"

"Wonderful Getaway! A group of 16 of us went to Yokayo Ranch for a weekend to celebrate an engagement. The buildings were really wonderful, with a rustic feel. There was plenty of room, and the accommodations and linens were very comfortable. Everyone I talked to throughout the process was also very helpful and nice, so overall we had a wonderful experience and weekend.

We had my husband's 40th at the ranch and from the moment we drove up I was amazed. He loved it as did all of our guests. The kids range in age from 5 to teens and there was fun for all. Great property, soulful and fun living space and the lights at night were icing on the cake. Do not hesitate to book this fantastic property - you will be over the moon satisfied.

We just returned from an amazing long weekend at the Yokayo Ranch. Our party consisted of 14 adults & 14 kids (all under 8) and the property was a perfect fit for our group. We never felt crowded and there was more than enough space, fits 8 families comfortably. It's hard to find a rental that can meet so many needs and this ranch has it all: lots of bedroom/bathrooms, large pool, hot tub, fire pit, large grass area for outdoor games, large screen tv in bunk house property and common areas indoors for eating/hanging out together. The care takers were very helpful and accommodating and responded quickly when emailing about the property. In addition the A/C worked in all houses and there was fast internet. Our only regret was that we didn't book for longer, looking forward to coming back again!

I flew in from NY to attend the wedding of my life long friend. i came a week before to try to help her finish up all the preparations. By the time we arrived at the ranch, we were all exhausted. What a lovely surprise! The ranch was absolutely beautiful! The property was beautiful, and the accommodations were perfect for a wedding. There were 2 very large and well equipt kitchens in the bunk houses, and the other sleeping areas had there own private baths, along with a small kitchen space--coffee pot, toaster oven, glasses,plates -etc. They had a lovely area for the ceremony to take place, and large tables that could accomadations 12 people to sit for dinner. They even surprised the bride and groom with a dance floor. They helped the family with the rehearsal of the ceremony and really made everything run smoothly. Everything was immaculate and so comfortable. The staff was polite and did everything to make our weekend so memorable. I highly recommend the ranch for a any type of party. There were over a 100 people at our party, and we had more than enough room. This would be a perfect venue to have a wedding, family reunion, or a business weekend. If you are planning an event, please take the time to go see the ranch--it was the loveliest wedding I have ever attended. So much nicer than the formal, stuffy weddings that I am used to in NY. You will not be disappointed! Susan Connors
Our party of 18 people stayed for five days in June of 2015. The party included five children, three seniors, and three dogs. The VRBO description of the ranch is actually understated. The ranch consists of four structures, two cabanas, a bunkhouse, and the main house. The interiors are decorated true to the surroundings and are very rustic. There is air conditioning in all of the structures with the exception of one cabana (and I was told that would soon be included). There is a large swimming pool, spa, and outdoor cooking area (with both propane and charcoal barbeques and an outdoor refrigerator). The grounds has plenty of parking and two large lawn areas. There is also an outdoor gas fireplace. The bunkhouse has a projection television with large screen in which to stream Netflix (and we were able to watch the NBA finals live with the assistance of a personal labtop). Wifi is also included. What drew our attention is that the main house has two large dining tables (including a smaller one) in which our entire party could sit and eat together, instead of in shifts. The refrigerator is so large that it can store probably three weeks of groceries and perishables. The beds are numerous with accompanying bathrooms. One of our seniors isn't the nimblest of feet but had no problems in accessing a shower. The owners are responsive and care about your comfort. They checked in with us to see how we were enjoying our stay. The only reason why this review isn't five stars - I would actually grade it four and a half - is just because of the indigenous nature of some of the surroundings. The ranch contains poison oak, ticks, and rattlesnakes, but these things are all native and plentiful in California. The ranch contains paved, well-lit paths and the cleared areas are free of these concerns. However, if you have a dog that loves to roam through brush or a child who likes to explore without your knowledge, you run the risk of encountering some of these things. The ranch itself is surrounded by nature and trees. You do not hear anyone else around nor hear any cars. Despite that, you are literally minutes driving time away from downtown Ukiah, Raley's, a bowling alley, a movie theater, and other local sites. This property is truly recommended.
This was perfect for my grandsons bachelor party. The pool party was a big success and barbecue on the grass was a hit. The atmosphere was perfect and the cater recommended did a great job! Thanks Yokayo Ranch for a memorable event.
