About Us


The Ranch on Denali Trail is a locally owned and operated farm in Soddy-Daisy, TN.  Owned by James and Nikki Bender, our goal was to create a space that allowed our family and friends to disconnect from "technology-bound" lives and create something that was both beautiful and sustainable.


Originally from California, James' iconic view of "the ranch" was the key inspiration for this farm in Soddy-Daisy.  Beautiful wooden barns with large structural beams, landscapes with Pine and Oak, and grasses swaying in the wind is his view of the iconic ranch.


Inspired by southern charm, Alaskan wilderness, and even Japanese culture, Nikki breathes life into the design and usefulness of the property through her keen sense for practicality, beauty, and thoughtfulness.


We've been blessed with a wonderful family and a wonderful opportunity to share this property to all who visit.  We truly are excited to experience it again and again with you.
