Welcome to River Highlands Ranch
About River Highlands Ranch
Talk with someone who’s been to River Highlands Ranch, and invariably the word “magical” enters the conversation.
There is something about the Ranch that captivates the hearts and imagination of all that come. Perhaps it’s the stunning natural beauty of a twilight evening, or the quiet serenity that comes from being “on the land”… or the warm conversation that flows so naturally in the inviting leather chairs in the Vineyard Barn or under the stars around the embers of the outdoor firepit. Or maybe it’s an exquisite meal in the company of friends who are open and alive to
experiencing life to its fullest.
Whatever the case, it is an experience that is meant to be shared and savored.
River Highlands Ranch is the unique result of a vision pursued by John Waskiewicz and Jane Rivar Waskiewicz. Founded in 1999, the 600-acre ranch represents their desire is to combine the best in environmental, economic and social sustainability with their deep love of the arts and community – what some might call “articulture”.
By design, it is both a working ranch and a gathering place where relationships can be built and savored. Simply put, it’s all about our love of nature, of people, of community, of music. The ranch is nestled in the foothills of northern California adjacent to Spenceville Wildlife Refuge. It’s located one mile south of the Yuba River near historic Grass Valley / Nevada City and is just 2-1/2 hours from San Francisco.
