A Tranquil Retreat Setting in the Majestic Redwoods… Join us for an incredible afternoon at Wild Iris Retreat near Philo in Anderson Valley. There will be gourmet snacks, jeep tours and an inside view into this enchanting property. This exquisite 300+ acre property is a perfect family compound tucked away with plenty of sunshine and shaded groves of towering redwoods. The pictures and description of this property cannot convey its enchanting quality — it must be experienced to understand its unique beauty, magic and history.

Site of the historic Tumbling McD guest ranch, Wild Iris Retreat is located in a secluded part of the Anderson Valley famous for its Pinot Noir wines. There are twelve acres of prime Pinot grapes and 30 +/- plantable acres of land overlooking the river.

The ‘English Manor House style’ gardens extend over three acres that include two guest houses, a 90K gallon pool, a beautiful stone spa, and a dance hall. This incredible space has been the scene of some of the Bay Area’s exceptional country weddings and guest stays. Home to a exquisite old growth redwood forest, the property is situated at the confluence of the the Anderson and the Rancheria creeks, which together form the Navarro river. A favorite for kayakers in the spring, the river borders the property for one mile on its southwest side.

Truly magical, this property must be seen to fully experience its transformational spirit and natural beauty. We look forward to seeing you there!
