Last weekend my entire family (grandparents, siblings, in-laws)travelled from Brooklyn, Manhattan, Westchester County and Ulster County to one of the best kept secret family destinations....Rocking Horse Ranch. During our two day visit everyone was able to do what they liked. The children (5, 6, 9, and 11) couldn't get enough of the indoor water-park. They had so much fun while... More

RHR is a very family friendly resort w/ tons of activities to keep e/o happy. Plus they have great spaces w/ fireplaces if you just want to relax or socialize. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is plentiful and delicious. We all had a wonderful time!

First impressions of the resort were small from the outside but once inside it is amazing how spacious and homey everything... More

We were going to stay all week. Thank god they were only available for one night. George greeted us warmly when we got there so I thought this will be great. Everything was very clean and neat and the room was ready early and that's where it stopped. We weren't told when or where to go for what. We weren't... More

My family of 4 (kids ages 5 and 3) spent 4 nights at RHR in late February. We stayed in a 2-bathroom suite in the Oklahoma Lodge. From the moment the kids walked into their room and saw the cute bunk beds, they were enamored. The indoor water park was the highlight (we went twice a day, and both kids... More

Just returned from RHR and it was well worth the $$$. We surprised our 6 year old with a mini vacation and he loved it and so did we. We visited the pool, multiple times a day, went snow tubing at night, horseback riding and a massage (for me). We also participated in many of the games offered throughout the... More

This is a return visit for our family ... &, once again, we all had an amazing time. Here we are in the middle of a rough winter here in upstate NY ... yet we can easily drive to the always-welcoming Rocking Horse Ranch & immediately be in an environment that just loves children ... as well as parents ......

My family of 4 had a great time at RHDR. The Lodge itself is beautiful and all activities are w/in minutes of the main lodge. Major bonus points! The ski hill is perfect for beginners/amateurs. Anyone looking for a major ski run will be disappointed. The ice rink is very small, but again perfect for beginners and the little ones.... More

All this was available and... More
