Indian Hut: Come explore how the original inhabitants of this land lived years and years ago. Our Indian Hut gives you and your family a glimpse into the lives of the "locals" that carved the actual rock from which our little ranch is named. Your kids will love this!
Haunted Mine: Well ... it's not really haunted! The Broken Handle Mine is a guest favorite. The miners used to extract the gold from the hills and valleys around Placerville during the Gold Rush of 1849. Some say there's still gold in them thar hills! We ... have no comment.
Artifact Museum: Come see our informal display of all of the various mining implements used on and around our property. It's like traveling back in time!
