Family Reunions are a CM Ranch specialty. Charlie Moore built the CM in 1927 specifically for multi-generational families to enjoy one another and the lifestyle out west.
We are a friendly, casual establishment with various generations and age ranges attending. The ranch is run much like it was back in 1927 – passionate management hosting an array of lovely guests that have set out to partake in simple pleasures and commune with the wilderness. Our guest capacity tops out at only fifty, an ideal size for generating good humor and personable interactions among guests and crew…just the way we like it.
These days it is hard to get together with everyone's crazy schedules. If you can decide on the date, then let us do the rest! Come and reconnect, relax, ride, and enjoy one another’s company in this natural and serene environment.

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.
