5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Had a fabulous time! The horse riding steals the show but there is so much more to do. And their customer service philosophies are exceptional , i.e. They do not rush you out of the pool at closing time! Staff work hard to make you feel at home. Two girls 14,13 and son 10 all had a great time, food... More

I have been to this Resort several times and each time I come in I am welcomed with a friendly smile and very helpful staff. The first few times I came and I didn't know my way around, the staff were more than happy to show me around and at a later time was actually given a tour around the... More

I am a mother of 3 so vacation is always challenging. After my long weekend at the ranch- I felt recharged and sad to go back to work. My kids loved the ice rink and all the animals! The food was tasty and even my pickiest eaters loved it, the soft serve was an absolute hit! The best part was... More

Okay, so my wife and two children decided to visit this resort for one week after hearing generally positive comments from some of our colleagues at work. I honestly do not even know where to start with this place. The property is located in the middle of nowhere in Ulster county, NY. I couldn't even find the place initially because... More

This was our second time there this past weekend. It was a lot of fun for the kids and adults. Swimming, snow tubing and skiing made the day fiber ally fast. Really exhausting for the adults but the smiles on the kids faces makes it worth while. Don't think I would like it during summer, so definitely a winter weekend... More

Had a great weekend at the ranch!! We usually go to Hershey for the holidays, but we decided to change things up this year and try Rocking Horse instead. We're very happy we did!! We didn't have any snow, but there was still plenty to do!! The kids were able to skate, swim, ride the horses just to name a... More

The Positives: The Rocking Horse Ranch has been around for decades, but they have truly kept up with the competition by providing an outstanding entertainment destination for young children. We were there in the freezing cold weather, and my daughter and I were able to swim, ski, snow tube, horseback ride, and more. The schedule of the day makes it... More
