My daughter and I stayed at the Twin Elm in July 2013. What an amazing experience! Our cottage was rustic and simple but cute and clean. The ranch is beautiful with a stunning view down over the valley. We took our horse rides in the morning to avoid the afternoon heat. Our trail guides, Bobby and Dale were fun and... More

You cant find a more relaxing, friendly place then the Twin Elm Ranch! Our family stayed 4 days for a quick "getaway from it all" trip. The room we stayed in was basic but clean and comfortable. The staff was so friendly, they treated us like family! The food was good. Barbecue just as would be expected on a dude... More

The people were great. The ranch and horses were beautiful. The hayride was a joke since they used our hayride to put out hay and it was two women throwing out the hay with short shorts on and showing their butts when they bent over. Disgusting! Campfire was a disappointment. The guy started the fire and left to go eat... More

This was a last minute trip in Feb 2014 and for the record - I did a "Room Only" and did not participate in the other activities or food options. GOOD: Typical dude ranch with 50s bunkhouse style cabins, big corral with horses for trail riding, large RV park in back, recreation room, pool. The "Room Only" rate was 1/2... More

stayed 3 days in their Rv park, horseback riding, swimming in their pool, enjoying a lovely group of lovely people. Their facilities are nice and clean, plenty of hot water. On Saturday night they have a Rodeo. Was very glad we stayed there.

We had a fantastic time. I visited this ranch with my parents ( I am in my late 20's) None of us had visited a ranch before or horse ridden but are into trying new things and some adventure, we all had a REALLY good time. It was personally what I would expect from and ranch and more. Not a... More

We stayed here for several days, and loved every minute. It's not fancy, but it's fun to stay on a ranch, ride horses several times a day, go on a hayride, sit about the campfire, etc. we stayed in the lodge...for just the 2 of us. There is no tv in the room, but it's well air conditioned. All of... More

All the pieces are in place, but the magic words are missing. Beautiful location, horses, a creek, a rec room, ranch hands, acreage... but no glue holding it all together. We brought a group of 15 to Twin Elm and told them we were spending the day, scoping it out for a future stay. Asked for a ride and some... More

We had no tv but when your in the country, you shouldn't care. It was basic but cheap. Enjoyed the game room and watched movies in there. Went horseback riding and had a blast. Would stay here again. The couple that take care of the horses were wonderful.

We stayed on the ranch during a very quiet time. Unfortunately we arrived late and missed being able to have a bonfire and a hayride. Our keys were left out for us so we had to settle ourselves in. The room was very cosy and clean. There was a TV but only VHS borrowed from the store could be played... More
