Somes Bar, California
Reunion locations will set the tone of the family reunion you are planning. If you can, try to imagine the difference in flavor and tone of a reunion held at a public park, or at a large theme park, on a cruise ship, or at a private guest ranch. While some of these options make for easy planning with fully catered meals and activity options, the intrusions of large populations from the general public can interfere with private bonding. We ask that you consider the benefits of planning your next reunion at California’s Reunion Ranch – Marble Mountain Ranch. There can be some real value to insulating your reunion group from distracting social and technological intrusions. We are remote enough to offer your family privacy, yet close enough to allow us to provide full service adventure vacations and reunion holidays.
