My wife, six-year old child and I went on a ranch vacation last year and had a great time, so we decided to do it again this year. We were looking for a more intimate place this time and decided on Echo Valley Ranch. Overall it was an excellent choice.
The ranch is an interesting mix of traditional western and Thai architecture - tastefuly done and just seems to "belong" in the beautiful setting. The main lodge is inviting and the combination of excellent food and family style meals with good company made eating at the ranch an enjoyable experience. The staff is welcoming, very helpful, and for the most part attentive. What really helps make Echo Valley a wonderful place to stay is the warmth of two truly nice hosts - Norm and Nan. I would be remiss if I did not mention that the fly fishing in the two trout ponds for acobatic 2-6 pound rainbows was great.
One caveat for those with young kids. The kid group activities seemed rather ad-hoc and were not especially well organized. So, based on our experience, I would highly recommend Echo Valley Ranch, but particularly for adults or adults with older children.
