Description: ABOUT ST. NICHOLAS RANCH: "The Ranch" as the locals call it, is a conference and retreat center located in Dunlap, California, 40 miles east of Fresno in the foothills leading up to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park. Rolling hills, ancient oaks, an apple orchard and an olive grove provide gorgeous natural surroundings. Nestled on 230 acres of what was once a working horse ranch, our lodges, meeting spaces, and recreational facilities provide for very comfortable accommodations surrounded by rugged landscape. Both the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are only 30 minutes away from our facility, making it possible to visit both in one day! A breathtaking Byzantine-style monastery over looks our facility. Hiking trails and a swimming pool are also available. All rooms come with a private bath, individual air-conditioning and heating. All the lodge rooms, dining, and classrooms are located together on level ground. All meals are included in the registration fee. VISIT OUR WEBISITE: www.stnicholasranch.org.
