Family-Owned Rankin Ranch Celebrates 150 Years Of Cattle Ranching And 48 Years As A Top Vacation Destination

WALKER BASIN, Calif., Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Rankin family is pleased to celebrate 150 years of cattle ranching and their 48th guest ranch season. Family-owned for six generations, Rankin Ranch is in the heart of the Tehachapi Mountains. From kids' programs and girls' getaways to art weekends and time for family retreats, spending time at Rankin Ranch creates memories with history, horses, and good old-fashioned western hospitality.

The 150th celebration kicks off March 22nd when the ranch opens for Spring Break. Trail riding, hiking, fishing and star-gazing take guests back to a simpler time of living in the moment and enjoying fresh air in a beautiful setting. History Days, April 26th to 30th, will be a highlight of the year with historical presentations about the ranch and surrounding area. July 4th also has a dual celebration for the 150th and Independence Day. Summertime is family fun time with supervised children's programs (age 4 to 11), and activities for all ages. Family-style meals and barbeques are prepared by 30-year Rankin Veteran, Rudy, whose food is just one of the many traditions that keeps guests coming back.

Amanda Rankin Barrett says, "We're excited to invite the community to join our family in celebrating 150 years of cattle ranching. In a world where everything changes, the ranch is always the same from year to year. Our guests love coming to the ranch to relax and unwind or reconnect and have fun letting kids have freedom and making memories that last for generations."

A wide variety of ranch activities have guests saying that Rankin Ranch "is the most amazing vacation we have ever had," and "I cannot remember a time when I have had so much fun and met so many fantastic people." In addition to horseback riding, hay wagon rides and the swimming pool, there's bike riding, recreation room and lawn sports. For those whose idea of vacation is doing less, not more, the shaded lawn chairs are a favorite location for an afternoon nap.
