Wilson Ranches Retreat is Celebrating 12 Years and 4 Generations
Wilson Ranches Retreat Bed & Breakfast celebrated their 12th Anniversary on March 12, 2012. Thank you for twelve years of extraordinary memories and for being an amazing extended family! They've created an amazing Oregon Geotourism adventure in Central Oregon.
Your hosts, Phil and Nancy Wilson's families homesteaded in Wheeler and Gilliam Counties over 100 years ago after traveling the Oregon Trail in the 1800's. Four generations, from 6 to 98, participate in the daily ranch operations. Grandpa Morris and Grandma Viola are frequently driving their Chevy S10 to flag for cattel drives and join the picnics at branding. Calving season is in full swing with the first having been born February 4th. This is Phil's favorite time of year watching 'new lives' begin and the hill turning green.
Although the ranch has been running for over 100 years the Wilson's opened the farmhouse to B&B guests 12 years ago. Breakfast with the Wilson’s is about much more than just good food and nourishment, it is truly a unique dining experience. Phil and Nancy sit down with the guests and share about ranch life, local history, and the funny and serious sides of rural living. Whatever the topic at the breakfast table, expect the conversation to be intelligent, informed and often humorous. You are likely to have a large helping of fun and laughter with Phil’s stories
Let your inner Cowboy or Cowgirl out! Visit Wilson Ranches Retreat for an authentic Ranch experience. Not the riding type? Not a problem. Sit under the cottonwoods, sipping lemonade while the rest of your party is out 'working'! But you might want to join in. There may be an inner cowhand you've never even met!
