Selling R-Ranch

Five thousand, one-hundred and nineteen acres located just south of the Oregon/California border, with the Klamath river running through it, R-Ranch has been in our family nearly since it opened. Not a time-share or a 'plan', R-Ranch is only available to the 2,200 owners and their guests. Our fee simple title gives us ownership in common with the other owners - rights to the entire ranch: private salmon fishing, a fine string of western horses, two swimming pools, bunkhouse, campgrounds, tennis courts, lounge with pool tables and tennis tables, trap shoot range, hunting (in season), and so much more.

We have good memories of the ranch: BBQ's; rafting down the Klamath, horseback rides, swimming, camping, times with friends. Now it is time to let someone else enjoy the ranch. We can no longer make the drive down I-5, and it is time to say good-by, not to the happy memories, but to holding on to something we can no longer enjoy.

Every year some shares of the ranch are sold through the ranch sales offices, and this year they are priced at $2,500. - (reflecting an overall drop in vacation property since gas prices have spiked). We are putting an ad in the paper to sell for $2,000. and will include the 17 foot Road Ranger travel trailer we have stored at the ranch (free storage of your recreational vehicle is part of the amenities). If we could still use the ranch, we'd find a way to keep it, but as I've mentioned in other posts, health problems are influencing changes in our lives.

We'll always have the family pictures, which look much like those posted on the ranch website, here.
