This is my family's 4th visit to LVL, and my I think 15th or 16th over the past 30 or so years. While there have been some changes, the core stays the same. The staff are just outstanding. I can't say enough about the hospitality and genuineness in wanting to make your stay special. I have reviewed the ranch in general earlier (see 2009) So I would like to really highlight the excellent staff this time. One example: we were an hour out from the ranch having just left at the end of our week stay when we discovered we had left something behind. (They had already left me a voice mail on my cell, but we couldn't get it due to spotty coverage). On the 9 mile dirt road back in to the ranch my 5 year old got sick all over the back seat of the car and herself. We arrived back at the ranch 5 minutes later. We were offered lunch and drinks, the kiddy supervisors my daughters had all week came out to make sure they were ok and cheer up my sick 5 year old, and the maintenance crew helped me clean out the rental car, even giving me some "new car scent" spray. They are just fabulous.
The riding program is great for all levels and with Kellie in particular (go gamecocks) the instruction is first rate. This place is very special. We are already counting the days to our next visit.
