In 1966, as the remaining brother, Edward, reached retirement age, the Geary family sold 8,000 acres of the ranch to Ruth Teasdale, a resident of northern California. The Gearys retained the original Geary ranch land on the northwest side of the present Running Y Ranch. The ranch was sold again in 1974 to Roy Disney, of the Disney Corporation, and Peter Daily, and was named the Double D Land Company. Under the management of Don Hagglund, who was hired by Double D in 1976, the ranch operation focused on growing hay, grain, beets and potatoes, and grazing cattle for the other ranchers on the 5,000 acres of the ranch.
In 1994, the JELD-WEN Corporation of Klamath Falls bought the ranch. Through the efforts of Eagle Crest Properties, a JELD-WEN subsidiary, 3,600 acres of the property have been developed into the Running Y Ranch Resort. The remainder of the 9,600 acre property is managed as a farm and ranch land.
Plans to build a destination resort on the property were announced in June 1994. In March 1995, Klamath County adopted the destination resort ordinance enabling the Running Y to proceed with resort construction. In August 1995, Arnold Palmer held the groundbreaking ceremony for the golf course. The Phase 1 plat of 82 home sites was approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on August 8, 1996. Since then, there have been thirteen phases developed at the ranch.
On November 19, 2010, a joint venture comprised of Northview Hotel Group, LLC, and a subsidiary of funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P., acquired the Running Y Ranch from JELD-WEN, Inc. Northview began a strategic renovation, focusing on improvements to the lodge, guestrooms, exterior, restaurant, outdoor gathering areas and the golf clubhouse. Following the completion of the renovation in January, 2012, the Lodge at the Running Y, joined InterContinental Hotel Group as a Holiday Inn Resort. Northview continues the spirit of the basin and is making strides to promote the growth of the migratory bird population to the community.
