unique lodging in a historic hamlet

The Parkfield Lodge, which houses 10 guest rooms, was built in 1991 by John Varian and his ranch crew. It is constructed with logs and an extensive use of upcycled materials. Ranging from grain silo redwood doors, maple flooring from a WWII USO building, to oak railroad tie porches, and potato harvester chain fences, everywhere you look you will notice tastefully repurposed materials that reflect beauty and nostalgia. All rooms have full modern amenities that include satellite TV, refrigerator, coffee maker, air conditioning/heating, tub/showers, with a full complement of toiletries including our famous Juniper Soap made from the wild juniper harvested on the V6 Ranch. The Gathering Room has a large stone fireplace,  wild animal mounts, leather sofas, a library, and a mini kitchen. Wifi is available throughout the main building.  

The Lodge has a pool and spa area that continues the theme of old iron relics and native log accents. The entire grounds at the Lodge are gorgeous and relaxing. For the more active guest, the old country roads of Parkfield lend themselves to a nice mellow walk, a bike ride or run for the avid exerciser.

The Parkfield Lodge offers much more than rest and relaxation. The 20,000+ acre V6 Ranch is just 3 miles away and we offer a wide variety of horseback riding activities all listed here on our website. Join one of our groups or bring your friends, we'll help you create your own event!
