Located in splendid isolation

Open for Reservations only
No Day Trippers or Casual Visitors are ever admitted to Mellonsfolly Ranch or Waterfall Mountain, and the Town cannot be seen from the road. We keep our facilities solely for our guests. If you want to inspect the facilities for a conference or a special group visit you must ring for an appointment when there are no guests in residence. You cannot be admitted if you venture out without prior contact. It’s a long way to come to be disappointed!
