The Grand View Ranch is an “Artist’s Refuge in the Mountains” and is located on 10 acres of protected mountainside land.

Our Ranch inspires an ongoing commitment to the care and preservation of mountain flora and fauna – enabling our guests to enjoy the natural surroundings of this tranquil retreat. Ecologically diverse, The Grand View Ranch has a mix of California trees such as dogwood, pine, fir, cypress, and oak forest, as well as having stunning views of Mount Shasta and the Eddies, all that creates a tranquil landscape.
It is my dream to create an idyllic artist retreat, where artists can participate in location painting workshops that nurture the artist in a place of unparalleled beauty and inspiration. I am interested in offering an experience that reflects the philosophy of one of my mentors, John Ruskin, author of “Modern painters.” Ruskin rejected the dehumanizing effects of the Industrial Revolution, similar to what we are going through right now, with mass-produced imports from other countries, and very few items made with the artist’s hands, mind, and heart. I hope to work with other similar thinking artists to make a difference, and to provide a location for human connection and artistic expression to grow. This type of project takes a battalion of helpful colleagues to make it work, and many artists have contributed to this dream. I thank them with all my heart.
Located in Northern California, The Grand View Ranch Artist’s Retreat is located near beautiful small towns located in the Cascade mountains. It’s elevation is 4,000 feet making it a comfortable environment year round. Activities such as skiing, hiking, river rafting, mountain climbing , golfing and a host of other activities are available to visitors. Mount Shasta, a city in Siskiyou County, California, is where “heaven and earth meet” and the water is the purest in the world. The city is about 3,600 feet above sea level and is near the flanks of the volcano called Mount Shasta, a prominent northern California landmark.
