Ranch Rudolf: Traditions Start Here

We invite you to come and share in the heritage of the Ranch.  At the core of our mission is providing families a place to come together and create memories that will last a lifetime and evoke a new tradition for many years to come.  Your stay at the Ranch will feel like stepping back in time to a comfortable place of leisure and laughter.  Whatever the season, whatever the reason, let Ranch Rudolf help you create wonderful memories with your loved ones.  We strive to embrace our guests with a genuine warmth and true western hospitality and to provide a family friendly environment and the spirit of togetherness.

The Ranch sits upon 195 acres along the banks of the Boardman River and nestled deep in the woods of the Pere Marquardt State Forest.  We are just 12 miles south east of Traverse City, but you will feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle that can consume everyday life.  We invite you to be our guest.  To come, to gather and to enjoy outdoor recreation and relaxation alike on a visit you won’t soon forget.

Now that the snow has arrived we will be open for our winter season beginning January 9, 2015. Closed Wednesdays. As snow allows we will serve lunches 6 days a week and dinner Fridays and Saturdays.
