Purchased in 1983, the grounds were painstakingly developed by Doug and Genie Haak as a retreat for friends and family, fulfilling their dream of sharing their beautiful ranch with others.

From family owners Doug and Genie Haak: This is a great place to renew your spirit, reconnect with loved ones, and even rebuild relationships. Thank you for giving us a chance to fulfill our dream of sharing this beautiful ranch with others.
