Normal Innkeeper Hours of Operation
We like to stay busy and enjoy the ranch and surrounding area as well. You can expect to find us in the main cabin area during check-in times of 3-7pm and from approximately 7am until check-out at 11am. Outside of our these hours we can be contacted by phone at (707) 363-6919 .
If possible, we are happy to accommodate check-in needs outside of our normal innkeeping hours when given prior notice. Any check-in times outside of our normal hours must be confirmed with the ranch prior to your arrival. Self check-in is required if arriving after 10pm and must be arranged with us prior to your stay.
For our guests staying multiple nights, we generally do not provide daily room cleaning services after our initial thorough cleaning prior to your arrival. We will happily keep your room stocked with any extra supplies you may need and we will freshen up your room upon request. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to speak with the innkeeper.
A full breakfast is included in your nightly room rate. Breakfast is served in the dining room of the main cabin between 8-930am. Pre-breakfast coffee & sweet service is available starting at 7:30 am.
Seven-Up Guest Ranch will happily prepare some options for your specialty diet but advanced notice is required. Please let us know of your dietary restrictions during the booking process. Our small family kitchen is used to prepare all foods including those that you may have an allergy to. If your allergy is severe, to avoid the risk of cross-contamination, you should bring your own food or request us to purchase a pre-packaged option in preparation of your stay. We know there are many people with specific dietary considerations, many of them our own friends and family. We're always happy to try our best to provide everyone with options they can enjoy.
Room prices are based on double occupancy. A full breakfast is offered with this pricing unless otherwise noted or requested. We offer a 5% cash discount if you choose to pay with cash. A credit card is needed to reserve your room and only used if there is a voilation of our cancellation policy. If you would like to change your payment option you can do this at check-out. Additional charges may apply for certain room add-ons, such as pets or additional guests.
For cancellations made within one week of check-in, $25 will be charged to the credit card on file. 50% of the room cost is charged for cancellations made within 48 hours of check-in. If a reservation is not cancelled and the guest is a "no show", the credit card on file will be charged the full room rate. Please note that rooms reserved within one week cannot be cancelled without incurring the $25 cancellation charge. We encourage guests to cancel within the time limit to avoid these charges as we would rather not enforce this policy.
Use of the Property
Your rental includes your room and access to the ranch. The main cabin is open during normal innkeeping hours for check-in and to serve breakfast. The dining room can be made available for the entertainment of guests outside of its normal usage and times with prior permission. If you would like to use the main cabin, patio, dining room, etc. please let us know and we will work with you as best we can to accommodate your needs.
Our Rustic & Wild Setting
We try to provide our guests with a rustic, get-a-way experience. The ranch blends a secluded cabin, camping-like experience with the hospitality of a Bed and Breakfast in the heart of a great wine tasting region. To keep our atmosphere consistent with the goals for the property, there are no televisons, nor WiFi or telephones in the rooms. There is a television and telephone in the dining room of the main cabin, which can be made available for guests by request. The ranch typically has cellular and data service for those guests with their own devices and plans, although this cannot be guaranteed.
We pride ourselves on maintaining a rustic, yet clean and charming setting surrounded by wildlife. Please be advised of the natural dangers of both our wildlife and our farming & construction activities here on the ranch. We try to mantain a safe environment for our guests and our family but ranches can be dangerous. If you do not feel safe within this environment the ranch might not be the place for you.
We want to open up the property for our guests to enjoy and explore and to do this we require our guests to understand that Seven-Up Guest Ranch is not liable for any harm incurred on the ranch. By agreeing to our Terms and Conditions, our guests waive the right to hold Seven-Up Guest Ranch liable to any and all harm.
If you see a rattlesnake, do not attempt to kill or trap it. Just leave it alone. The ranch is located on mountainous & hilly terrain, please be advised that this can present tripping or falling hazards. Proper shoes and attire are recommended. We are continuously working on the property and often have farming & construction equipment/supplies around the property. Please do not touch, climb, or play with this equipment. It can be dangerous. Both our rangeland and livestock are restricted to only those guests with written permission to access either of these. In addition, there has been a mountain lion spotted on the property a few times. Mountain lions generally eat deer, of which there is a lot of here at the ranch (hence the mountain lion) and usually do not pose a threat to humans. Please see the wildlife section of our website for more information and references.
Dogs at Seven-Up Guest Ranch
Dogs are allowed, and encouraged, at the ranch but only with prior permission. All dogs on the ranch need to be reported to us. If you have another pet, other than a dog, let us know and we'll try to accommodate you. Bringing a dog is an "add-on" to the cost of your room. There is a $15 charge to bring a dog per night. You are responsible for your dog and any damage, disruption, or harm that may result from your dog or other pet. This includes potential harm to your dog from hazards on the ranch such as rattlesnakes. You are responsible for the noise and disruption your dog causes to the owners or other guests. If your dog causes the disruption of another guest's stay, which results in a complaint by such guest, you could be responsible for monetary compensation made to the disrupted guest. Your dog must be on a leash or in a kennel at all times unless he or she is in the confines of your room under supervision or consent is given by Seven-Up Guest Ranch. All guests of the ranch should be aware that we do allow dogs and these dogs are allowed access the rooms. Each room is always thoroughly cleaned. We ourselves have a dog and chickens. Guests can expect our pets and potentially other guest’s pets to be on the ranch.
Seven-Up Guest Ranch greatly appreciates and respects not only your privacy but the general notion of privacy--hence the private ranch we work so hard to maintain. We do not share your information with others. We may use the email address we have on file to communicate with our guests about their future stay, for follow-up communication about their experience at the ranch, as well as for general communications between our guests and ourselves. If we do use your email for "marketing" the ranch and you are not interested in receiving these emails, we will take you off our email list immediately.
We hope the ranch can provide you with the experience you're looking for during your stay in Fair Play. As the new owners of this historic ranch, we are actively trying to improve the property and guest experience. We look forward to your stay at the Seven-Up Guest Ranch!
