Ruth Hill Retreat

Bed and Breakfast, Lodge or Resort, Ranch

Located in Squaw Valley, nestled in the magical Sierra Nevada foothills, we are just minutes from HWY 180 and only 30 minutes from the world’s tallest trees of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. There are local restaurants close by, a great coffee shop, local wineries and the works famous Project Cat Haven.

You’ll be amazed at what the peace and serenity of Ruth Hill Retreat does to your well-being. Our Retreat is nestled on the water's edge of Drakes Lake where you can enjoy kayaking, canoeing or paddle boating right at your back door. Take a lazy afternoon in the hammock or a peaceful hike around the property surrounding the home. With 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, 8 people can be accommodated comfortably with an additional Queen size Aerobed for another 2 people. Two rooms have an exit through French doors out to the huge side yard and there is a large covered patio off of the living room overlooking our expanse of lush green grass and the lake. The large propane BBQ on the patio lets our guests cook for a small or large group and the outside dining table lets you enjoy the beautiful surrounding while dining. There is a playhouse and swing-set for kiddos and adults can be one with nature in the private outdoor shower. Enjoy as much activity as you like, or take it easy and relax. This peaceful retreat is just waiting for you to energize your mind, body and soul.

We do accept Pets at our property but there is an additional cleaning fee of $50.

Please make sure to stock up on supplies before heading up the hill from Fresno - very limited groceries in the mountains.

We are happy to accommodate corporate retreats, yoga retreats, wellness retreats and the like, for 10 people or less. Contact us about any questions and we'll be happy to help facilitate your retreat plan. Sorry, we can not accommodate weddings due to shared access to the lake and road with the neighboring homes, unless the total amount of people on the property are 10 or less.
