Established in 1884, Highland Springs Ranch & Inn (formerly known as Highland Springs Resort) is Riverside County's first historical landmark. The property encompasses 2400 acres and is comprised of an organic farm, restaurant, inn and camp. Formerly a stagecoach stop, the ranch was frequented by such historical celebrities as Wyatt Earp, Ernest Hemingway and Albert Einstein.



Highland Springs Ranch & Inn is open from:

Sunday-Monday 9 am-3 pm

Tuesday 9 am-6 pm

Wednesday-Saturday 8 am - 11 pm


For guests staying at the ranch, we have a security guard 24-hours a day as well as late shift front desk staff (if needed).


The Grand Oak Farm to Table is open seasonally for holidays and special dinners. Please check out our website for the next opening by clicking here.


123 Farm is generally closed to the public except for festivals or special events. We recommend you plan your visit with us during the Lavender Festival, which is held in May-June over several weeks. Click here to visit the Lavender Festival website.

During Lavender Season (July), the farm will only open to the public on the weekends (Saturda-Sunday). There will be a small admission fee during those months.
