Mt. Emily Ranch Bed & Breakfast is a fabulous Custom Log Home on 135 acres overlooking the beautiful Chetco River Valley. Our acreage includes gorgeous woodlands, creeks and a small pond. Situated 5 1/2 miles up the South Bank of the Chetco, it affords wonderful views of the river, Mt. Emily; also better weather away from the fog of the ocean. The spacious Log Home provides comfortable living spaces and fun activities for all our guests. Staying on a working ranch offers some unique advantages - organic produce is readily available in season; apples and peaches from the orchard, vegetables from the garden, and fresh farm raised beef. Imagine waking up to birds singing, wildlife wandering through the pasture, the smell of fresh bread baking, and the amazing view of the Chetco River just outside your window.

My husband and I stayed at the Mt. Emily Ranch during our anniversary road trip from Portland and San Francisco. It was the perfect halfway point along our route. This was the first time we had stayed at a B&B so we didn't really know what to expect, but Carol made us feel immediately at home with our own private area on the 2nd floor (we were the only guests). The room and bathroom were spotless and had some much room to accompany the expansive views of her ranch and the Chetco River Valley. We were woken up to the smell of homemade waffles and bacon in the morning - which, we highly recommend. The antique waffle iron that she uses just solidifies that this is a cozy B&B. Overall, everything was great - perfect for our trip. The only negative was that it was a bit far from town. However, if you are staying for more than one night or have some time the next day, definitely stay awhile, and explore the ranch or just read a book while overlooking the amazing views.

We were travelling down the west coast from Seattle to San Francisco and had stayed in some pretty spectacular hotels. We needed to make a stop in this region but couldn't find a suitable hotel similar in quality to the previous ones. We stumbled across Mount Emily Ranch and booked it with some trepidation as we very rarely stay in a bed and breakfast. We really needn't have worried! The accommodation is stunning and the setting amazing! The food was mainly home reared and grown and tasted wonderful. The other couple staying were great company so much so we will keep in touch with them. We intended to make an early departure but ended up dragging ourselves away at midday. Carol is a fabulous hostess, judging how much attention you need impeccably. In our opinion if you are in this region it is a fabulous place to stay.

I must admit that my husband and I were a bit leery as we approached this B&B. Once we turned off the main road, we followed a short gravel road through two metal gates (cattle security?) at the press of roadside buttons. One step inside this BEAUTIFUL home, however, any hesitations about our stay vanished. The home is exquisitely built and has a view of the mountains and part of the Chetco that invites you to sit outside with a good book and NOT read! The rooms are huge (!), totally private, and decorated beautifully. Roaming and sitting space allowed in this B&B are amazing. Loved the moo of the cows across the road, the deer mingling with the cows, and many birds! Carol is a hard worker and gracious, warm hostess. We will definitely return.

We had a short but beautiful stay. The room (green room) was very clean and spacious. The house has a warm feel and for a moment you may think you are visiting an old friend's house. We got to meet Fuzzy (the cat), the golden retriever as well as one of the cows with her calf. Thank you Carol for a wonderful breakfast and your effort to accommodate our request for a light meal!

Delightful hosts, fantastic home, beautiful views, just about perfect. Delicious evening meal with the family. Breakfast was a delight with freshly picked peaches and plums and homemade bread. We will be returning as soon as we can.

Very clean, spacious rooms with very large common area. The house is located in a beatiful, quiet spot. The owner is very friendly and outgoing, and went out of her way to cater for my (and another guest's) dietary restrictions.
We enjoyed your stay, it was so interesting to hear about your travels. Thank you

Stayed at Mt Emily over Thanksgiving and it was fantastic. We were visiting from Australia and Carol and her family are the sweetest. They went over and beyond our expectations. If you are planning to stay in the area or see the Tall Trees, then you won't get any better experience than Mt Emily Ranch.

As well as the great food and the lovely room, what I'll remember about Emily Ranch is driving up to the ranch in the dark and seeing Carol standing silhouetted against the bright light of the doorway. She was waiting to welcome us after our long drive. Waiting for us was the meal we had asked for, in all the details, when she had emailed us before our stay - golden roast chicken, garlic roast potatoes and fresh al dente vegetables. Nothing more could have been done to give us a great stay and we wished we could have stayed longer to become acquainted with the animals on the ranch. This is definitely a two-plus day destination.

While on motorcycle trip along the coast we stopped at Mt. Emily Ranch B & B in September 2013. It substantially exceeded our expectations and in reality it is even more gorgeous than website photos. Looking back on our two week trip it was definitely our best dining and lodging experience. Carol (the owner) treated us with amazing Elk Stew dinner and we tested some home made fruit wines in warm home environment. In the morning we were leaving early and Carol kindly prepared early breakfast for us. Rooms (we occupied both) are huge and perfectly clean and furnished. Common area provides kitchenette and plenty of rest and play beautifully furnished space. There were plenty of other small and excellent details like handcrafted soap gift which we aren't mentioning but which made experience even more enjoyable. We would love to stop again, we believe this is perfect place for a couple get-away or as a stop on your trip. Feel free to contact me with questions. Note that there is a bit of drive uphill to get to the ranch house but that should not be a problem - even on rainy day motorcycles treated it ok.

What a great treat/retreat a few miles from Brookings just up the Chetco river valley. Carol and her family share their beautiful milled log home via their two very private upstairs suites. This is a new home and the rooms are huge, clean, comfortable and have a great view down the river valley. Do dinner with them if you can and sample some of the fresh meats, fruits and veggies they raise on this 100+ acre property. Plenty of room to roam with lots of wildlife all around, including friendly cats and a golden retriever that are happy to plan if you want -- they won't bug you if you don't. We had the Elk roast (yum) for dinner, fresh peaches and ice cream and some fresh-picked blackberries with our hearty breakfast. You know those places that you don't want to leave? This is one of those places. You'll be treated like family.
The Blue Room is a wonderfully spacious room decorated in navy blue, white and burgundy. Also includes its own en-suite bathroom with a tub. A view of the lower pastures and the beautiful Chetco River valley view can be seen from its large window. A smaller room is conveniently attached to the Blue Room with a comfortable Queen sized Inflata-bed for those with families. Another Queen sized or Twin Sized Inflata-bed is also available for larger parties.
The Green Room is a large spacious room decorated in a relaxing mint green and chocolate brown. It also includes its own en-suite bathroom with a tub. A view of the lower pastures and the beautiful Chetco River valley view can be seen from its large window. A smaller room is conveniently attached to the Green Room with comfortable bunk beds for those with families. Inflata-beds are also available for larger parties.
