This was our first time to Lost Valley Ranch and we already can't wait to go back. I'm not sure I can mention all of the wonderful amenities and memories that we experienced while we were there but I will do my best.
Everyone at the ranch is truly happy and friendly, it shows in the service, smiles and laughter that is abundant! Caroline was so helpful before we even arrived with answering questions and helping us get a special event planned. We arrived to a warm greeting and personalized attention. After giving us all the information we could ask, we were off to our cabins. The cabins have everything that you could need and are spacious and very clean. We were in the Diamond Lil cabin and our friends were in Pecos Bill, both were 1 bedroom cabins. Great location on the property! The beds were super comfortable with a big fluffy comforter!
The food is excellent. Each meal has two different options or half & half of each....if you don't like those options, they will customize something for you. There is fresh bread at every dinner and dessert with lunch and dinner. Each meal is homemade, balanced, healthy, delishious and you never left hungry. We were quite impressed with the quality of food. The dining room staff will make sure you have everything you need and more! They were always attentive to your dining needs and work together to make an amazing team.
The riding experience.... WOW! The wranglers really help you learn and ride to the level that you want. Don't feel pressure about being a beginner or the most advanced, they really cater to your skill level. Charlie, Joel, Paul and Coulter took us on rides different days and worked with us at different times. They know how to make the rides fun and breath taking. The views along the trails are just beautiful, don't be afraid to stop to get a photo!
A few notes: The hot tub really helps soak the sore muscles (the one by the pool is quite large). The trader post has sodas (they don't have them in the dining room). There is a mini fridge in your room, make sure to bring your own alcoholic beverages for your cabin (they do not serve or sell any). There is wifi in the lobby but that is the only place (leave your laptop and phone at home- enjoy your vacation!). Get bike shorts to wear under your jeans (helps if you plan to ride everyday). Bring a small backpack with a water bottle if you plan to go on a hike - Southern Comfort trail has breath taking views. Very safe and relaxing location, all the faces will be familiar by the second day.
Lost Valley Ranch is a hidden gem. I would recommend this ranch to couples, friends, families, just about anyone that wants to real vacation that will get you away from the everyday and bring you closer with those with you! We can't wait to go back, you should definitely book with them!
