The Menlo Ranch (historically known as Menlo Baths on Google Maps) is located near Eagleville CA. in the prestigious Surprise Valley in the far northeast corner of California. The ranch borders the spectacular Warner Mountains to the west and Lower Lake to the east. This is a very unique ranch property in that it features 6 ponds fed by natural flowing hot springs. One pond has a floating dock! These ponds remain full year round making it an excellent waterfowl hunting property.
Improvements on the property include a “Little House on the Prairie” classic ranch home, approximately 1,100 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. There is also a large barn with a concrete flooring and roll-up doors on each end. Other improvements include fencing and gate valves to facilitate irrigation of the meadows from the 3 largest ponds.
The Menlo Ranch is well suited for a small cattle operation and the warm water ponds attract substantial numbers of geese and ducks providing ideal conditions for waterfowl hunting. The current owners generate a significant income by leasing the highly desirable cattle grazing rights and the water fowl hunting rights.
