But that doesn’t mean there is nothing to do at Long Hollow Ranch and in Sisters County.

IMG_8710Weather is still great for some enjoyable outdoor, fall activities. Our ponds are still great for fishing. One pond is full of Large-mouth Bass and the other is brimming with Rainbow Trout. It’s a good time to spend a few hours with your line in the water while you enjoy the balmy fall air, listening to the Canada geese overhead, and observing the other wildlife nearby.

Aspen LakesGolfers can have a great time on some of the many local courses this time of year in Central Oregon. Guests of Long Hollow can take advantage of a very special package arrangement with one of the most beautiful courses in Oregon, Aspen Lakes. There are a number other great courses nearby to add to your enjoyment. Although nights and early mornings are nippy, daylight hours are still quite comfortable.

Of course, walking and hiking trails are abundant at the ranch and in the vicinity, as well. Hiking is a great way to enjoy spectacular scenery and wildlife, not to mention the crisp, clean fresh air for improving your entire well-being.

Trail rides on horseback are still available at Long Hollow, even for those that are not staying with us. If you do stay at the ranch for a short getaway, we may even treat you to an evening of hot dog and s’mores roasted around the fire pit in front of the greenhouse.

So you see, things do slow down a bit, and get a bit quieter, but life is still real good here. Looking forward to seeing you this fall, “back at the ranch!” Don’t waste any more time… reserve your room today!
