My company usually has our meetings in a suburban Chicago hotel. Boring. What a nice change of pace to spend our time this year at Purple Sage Ranch. Beautiful setting. Great accommodations and food. Wonderful, friendly staff. Plenty of fun things to do when we weren't in our meeting. Would love to stay here again.

Awesome in every way. Food was delicious, staff was very friendly and helpful. Will visit again. My husband and daughter enjoyed the outdoors From playing soccer to playing basketball, bike riding, playing pool. Perfect setting for a meeting and to get away from the city.

This place is absolutely amazing! Every detail was hand-crafted by Lon Yaeger (General Manager). The food was exquisite. Hands down, the best enchiladas on the planet! The Purple Sage Ranch has set the bar that every other place wants to be. I will be back every chance I get!

I gathered with some friends at this beautiful ranch and it was delightful! From the minute I drove up I was thoroughly impressed with the beautiful grounds and the personal attention by the general manager, Lon Yaeger, who made it his mission to see to each persons comfort and care.

We organized our family weekend several months in advance, and Ginger Cherry and all the folks at Purple Sage were so wonderful about helping us cement in the dates. One month before our reunion, we... More

Wow what a great place to be!! Great staff also. We were there for business meeting and fun. It was very relaxing the game room has a lot to do and the fire in the outside pit was nice. Deer running through the ranch at dusk also. Food was wonderful and a lot of variety of foods at each meal.
