Indulge in the beauty of the outdoors with 3 covered decks at the Shiny Bottom Monkey Ranch. Two of them are elevated on the 2nd
& 3rd floors, providing stunning panoramic views of the surrounding pine trees and landscape. Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on these spacious decks. For those seeking a more private retreat, relax on our private deck, a perfect spot for quiet contemplation.


Our game room opens to the back porch, seamlessly connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces.

  • Challenge your friends to a game of pool, air hockey, or darts while enjoying the fresh mountain air.

  • Create memorable moments with loved ones playing a corn hole tournament.
  • We have plenty of board games & puzzles to enjoy.
  • Football season? No problem! Our game room comes equipped with a big screen TV.


Nestled among the pine trees, a game of disc golf with friends awaits! Can you make a hole-in-one from the upper deck?

Zig-zag disc golf course is at your disposal, to play as you wish. Pick your path on the mildly challenging terrain. There is no set course to follow. Play short basket-to-basket or zigzag across the ranch for creating longer throwing distance challenges. Play a basket once or come back to the basket from a different location, it's up to you! Start the round of golf from the elevated deck, as some of the baskets are in site from the decks.

We offer a basket near a cliff, so don't overshoot… There are some tight spots for the seasoned player as well as open-spaced baskets for beginners. We offer 4 sets of 3 discs each (distance, midrange, & putting) for your convenience. There is a fee if you don't find and return a disc to the game room mantel, so make sure you keep your eyes on the discs as they fly through the trees. We appreciate that you return them so the next guests can enjoy!

Play zigzag for 9 holes, and you could be walking up to 2 miles. It is a hilly terrain full of ups and downs. Try your best not to break branches or crush the manzanita bushes, as these are a snack for the local deer and wildlife. While out on the course, you may see herds of deer passing by!
