Wine country living at its very best
As a Rim Rock buyer, you’re investing in an abundance of usable land—a blank canvas, save for mature oak, pine and olive trees, a gated entry, and paved roads. Whether you aspire to plant a vineyard and embark on that wine-making passion project, sustain a small horse ranch and farm your own gardens, or build a luxury home complete with infinity pool and hot tub, Rim Rock offers every owner this: a retreat from the fast pace of the city and valley (that’s not too far from the city or the valley), a place to become immersed in nature, some of the cleanest air in California, and a space to create your own private slice of paradise.
Rim Rock Ranch is in Middletown, next to Hidden Valley Lake, in Lake County. It's just 25 minutes north of Napa County, with Sonoma and Mendocino counties bordering to the west.
CC&Rs are in place to protect the naturally attractive terrain and views enjoyed by all owners , and ensure all development is keeping with the vision of developers, Patrick and Christine Taylor.
Rim Rock is an 800-acre gated community inclusive of 26 lots averaging 20 acres with a large 300-acre ranch and vineyard at the center providing gorgeous vineyard views for all. You’ll find mature oak, pine and olive trees as well as wildlife corridors throughout the property. Spectacular valley and vineyard views with unparalleled sunsets will take your breath away.
Rim Rock Ranch Vineyard Estates was so named for its excellent vineyard potential. A professional vineyard manager maintains Cimarron Vineyards, at the core of the development, and the grapes are under contract to a notable Napa Valley winery. Many parcels are ideal for vineyard development.
“Wander through any lot at Rim Rock and experience the early days for California. Evergreen-dotted hills rule the landscape. Deer and squirrels scamper about, while the hawks circle above. Gentle breezes carry the chatter from the local birds. One can almost envision what pioneers witnessed as their covered wagons inched westward.”

Rim Rock Ranch is in Middletown, next to Hidden Valley Lake, in Lake County. It's just 25 minutes north of Napa County, with Sonoma and Mendocino counties bordering to the west. As driving times go, Middletown is about 25 minutes from Calistoga, 45 minutes from St. Helena, 1 hr. from Napa, 2 hrs. from San Francisco, and 2-3/4 hrs. from Silicon Valley.
While Rim Rock feels luxuriously isolated beyond the gates it is located very close to a grocery/hardware store, restaurants, schools, and all of the typical shops found in a small town in California.
Rim Rock is minutes to shopping, dining, golf course and other recreational activities. Highlights include 18-hole PGA-rated Hidden Valley Lake golf course, water sports and fishing, and state and national parks and forests for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, and of course, countless wineries and tasting rooms.
