We call this "SliceO'Heaven Ranch" for a very good reason! If you want to leave the city life behind and immerse yourself in complete country living, this is your destination.. if you're headed to anywhere in the greater Sacramento area, ( including Elk Grove, Wilton, Galt Lodi, & Rancho Murieta), we're about 35 miles south of the capitol, in the rural town of Herald... but well worth the commute if you're in town on business or pleasure. We offer a large room with private bath and separate entrance off of a sun deck. THIS IS A WORKING RANCH with all the "charm" that goes with it. We have horses, goats, pigs, cows, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats. OVERNIGHT HORSE BOARDING available! You should be an animal enthusiast to take full advantage of this wonderful 8 - acre property. We are a non-profit corporation functioning as a rescue and sanctuary for dogs, cats and horses. We are respectful of our guests, keeping the dogs under control while out for limited exercise or in the kennels. Your dog is welcome, but please keep him or her on leash until we can see how they'll all get along. Plenty of places to walk, sit, meditate and participate. Riding lessons available! Seasonal swimming pool, BBQ, lounge chairs, and baby goats born in the spring! Breakfast (fresh ranch eggs!) included with arrangements available for all meals. (10 miles to the closest restaurant.. but you won't want to leave!!) We accommodate vegetarians and vegans. World renowned, award-winning smoothies! ;-)
This ranch is best suited for people who love nature and the outdoors... and with all the fresh air and hard work around here.. we generally wind down somewhat early in the evening. (There's no TV in the room, sorry) Please contact us with any questions.. we'd love to hear from you! Shelley

We love to share the property with guests. In colder months, meals will be served in the dining room but in the summer you'll be served at the picnic table under the shady mulberry tree. Because of dogs and other pets, the main house is not accessible to guests.
Interaction with guests
We live here on the ranch. If you want to be alone, we'll certainly respect your need for solitude. Otherwise we love to socialize and hear your story and share ours!
Please be a non-smoker. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on this property. The main guidelines are, common sense, followed by awareness of others and animals. We love to share the outdoors, pets and livestock with guests. We appreciate children who are respectful of property and cautious in their approach to the 4-legged residents here. We discourage running and yelling around the livestock as they spook easily. There are lots of "party" destinations and this probably isn't one of them. Bring your dog as long as he is not aggressive toward other dogs and be advised that our "pack" loves to rough house with other canines! It's like the dog park all day long! (no barkers, please) Just be respectful all around and we're happy! Shelley
