FILM LOCATION
The Bonnie B Ranch is valuable as a film location,
and scouts are invited to contact us for tours and information.
Below are photos of some of our sites
and past films featuring the Ranch.


The diverse topography of the Bonnie B Ranch has provided the scenic background for commercials, still photography, and feature films.

From rolling hills dotted with oak trees and five small lakes, to more mountainous terrain with pine and cedar forests, the ranch provides realistic settings right out of the midwest, northeast, or pacific northwest.


A gristmill with water falling over its water wheel, a covered bridge, quaint footbridges spanning the streams, a stone bridge in the bed of the stream, long stretches of stonework and winding split-rail cedar fences, all lend themselves to period pieces, battlefields, or unique backgrounds for more contemporary film shoots.


Directors have marvelled at the long hours of "non glare" sunlight time which accommodates their schedules of long shooting days.


With North Fork, Oakhurst, and Fresno nearby, an abundance of restaurants, motels, and movie support companies are available.

The ranch features 5 sparkling lakes, as well as streams, timberland and rolling hills. A rustic covered bridge, grist mill and a variety of western looking buildings are available as well as a 3000 sq.ft, 3 bedroom, 3 bath house.


Winter SceneThe Bonnie B Ranch is as beautiful in its winter scenes as during the spring, summer and autumn months! Winter SceneWhether real or artificial, snow lends a beauty to the landscape that is only enhanced by the filmmaking art.

Spooky Bonnie B Exterior
On a hill overlooking one of Bonnie B's five lakes, a 90-member construction team worked 8 weeks erecting the mansion's exterior under the direction of Linda DeScenna. In the film, no saturated colors were used, giving the house a bleak, scary feeling.
