I visited this ranch for 2 years and the scenery and the staff were wonderful. We went the first years that they were open during a week when we were the only paying guests. The Staff was wonderful and the lodge and activities were were first class. Some of the things were not open yet and they were still building the physical plant including the pool. The horse facility has bought some better horses for novices which they had very few their first year.I really enjoyed the wranglers which have been replaced with some of the English Taught riding staff. I am glad to see they did keep some local wranglers which MAKE the whole WESTERN experience. The Owner had looked for a place for over 20 years and the Place that he found has some of the most beautiful scenery that you will see out west.
The Lodge rooms are decorated over the top and are kept sparkling.
My main activity is riding and if you ride everyday and stay for a week like we did both times , you will ride the whole area.The Ranch did really accommodate us with some off-ranch riding adventures that were first rate.
They have a lot of other activities like sport shooting, paintball, archery,and fly fishing. All of these have very professional staff to assist you. You are also given a bike which I enjoyed going from the Lodge to the Barn daily.
We have visited about 15 ranches and was told that we would be given a discount off our nightly rate after our stay last year if we decide to return, like most other ranches do, for loyal customers. I was disappointed that they didn't honor when I called this year to take advantage of this.For this reason, We decided to go to another ranch on Gene Kilgore's list this summer
