Rana Creek is a working cattle ranch. The actual creek runs through seven miles of the eight miles of property, but it's only one of many water features on the plot. The hilly terrain has elevations ranging from 900 to 3,400 feet ASL.
The main house is a 7,000 square footer, and there are five other buildings on the property, excluding the guest house. A conference building, agricultural buildings—including a greenhouse—and barns, corrals and storage are also included. Fifty miles of road exist on the property.
