“I was here just about a year ago, and I have been dreaming about returning ever since. It felt like coming home to family with Patti and Rolf; one could not ask for finer, more caring hosts. Fresh and fragrant roses and home-made cookies were there to greet me, in the cutest and comfiest casita ever. The ranch is like a vision of early California, and it is kept in apple-pie order. The surrounding countryside is great to hike in or ride through and to explore. All the horses, dogs, chickens, and pure-white goat named “Sugar”, are so friendly and curious and fun to be with. At night are cricket-songs and dark, starry skies. Leave the devices behind, or turn them off. That way, you can rediscover what it feels like and sounds like to be in nature’s wonders, alone, perhaps, with your thoughts. You will come home renewed and refreshed as only Red Rock Riding Ranch can do.” Linda -Airbnb
“Such a fantastic oasis, we will be back!” Leila – Airbnb
“I just wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back.” Sarah – Airbnb
“Me and my friend have been staying at many AirB&B trough our trip around the states for three months and this is without doubt the best experience.” Nina – Airbnb
“Our hosts, Patti and Rolf, have been working their magic around the place for thirty years. They are so warm and accommodating, with intelligence and wit, and they are helpful and knowledgable. The horses there are nice, as well. You can ride or just make friends, and there are trails into canyons and hills and glens nearby.
Just sitting under the black night skies there somehow healed and changed me. I am going back soon.” Linda – Airbnb
“Rolf’s ranch is just a paradise to be in. As a filmmaker I can not contain myself and film at the ranch all the time. And Rolfe and Patti make you feel at home instantly. Highly recommended!” Ismael
“We had such a lovely time at Red Rock Ranch! Myself, boyfriend and a couple of friends of ours booked this place to have a nice get-a-way from LA for the weekend. The ranch is so peaceful and makes you feel like you’re a lot further than you are from the city. Rolf was excellent with communications, friendly and quite funny actually! The place was clean and very home-y feeling. I highly recommend and will definitely be back in the near future. Thanks Rolf!” Elaine
“Rolf and Patti are awesome!! My daughter and I felt like we were staying with some of our favorite relatives. Very Close to Magic mountain but staying in the country. Perfect!! My daughter did a riding lesson with Rolf and he is magic with the horse and kid. Thanks again Rolf and Patti; we hope to have time to come back again.” Daniel
“Rolf is incredible, I absolutely loved it here! I extended my stay and I hope to be back soon. He’s a great host, really kind and accommodating. His horseback riding lessons are also amazing, I was really happy with how much I learned in each lesson! My dogs loved the ranch and the fenced private yard outside made it really easy to leave them for long periods of time when I had stuff to do. I personally found it very relaxing and it was an exciting experience all around.” Ryan
“My daughter and I have now stayed twice at Rolfe’s beautiful Red Rock Ranch. The first was for my horse lover’s sweet 16th birthday. And we loved the experience so much, that we returned for a 2nd stay over Christmas weekend.
You couldn’t ask for a kinder, more gracious host than Rolfe. And his ranch is just like a visit to heaven… spacious, peaceful and serene, with beautiful well mannered horses, and surrounded by mountains on every side. Seemingly, far away from city life, yet only minutes from shopping and regular life in the Santa Clarita Valley.
The ranch house was quaint and homey, complete with a kitchen for cooking, TV and Wi-Fi, and the most comfortable bed you can imagine. There is also a large outside patio complete with table, seating and barbecue grill.
Rolfe generously spent his time watching and giving my daughter pointers on improving her riding skills on one of the sweet horses. Afterwards, she even got the opportunity to brush and wash the horse down. (What better experience for a young horse enthusiast!)
We also enjoyed getting up in the morning to help feed the horses with Rolfe and his two fun-loving boxers! All in all, our stay at the ranch could not have been more perfect. I’m sure we’ll be back again. Thanks Rolfe!!
P.S. Waking up in the morning to horses neighing outside your window… Priceless!” Kasey
