I took my son and daughter (ages 11 and 8) to the ranch for a one-night getaway during spring break. We stayed in the cottage and had the time of our lives. The farm is lovely, nestled in a green mountainside. We swam in the heated pool and lounged in the poolside hammock. Our cottage was comfy and sweetly decorated. The kids loved jumping on the trampoline and exploring around the farm, especially in the 'tunnel' between the treehouse and the horse pasture. Margaret, our gracious hostess, invited us to join her campers at the campfire singalong that night. My kids got a kick out of that! Then she invited them to the main house for ice cream. The next day, my kids had a riding lesson with Tracy, a superb instructor who had these two beginners trotting with confidence before the afternoon was out. We headed home feeling refreshed and grateful for our two days in the country -- a little sad to depart, but knowing we'd return soon. This place is the perfect antidote to everything we all need to get away from -- and at a price you can't believe. Go before everyone else catches on.
