I love that a big family owns and operates this ranch. They are all very friendly and accommodating. One of the nice ladies in the front office let me borrow her jacket to wear during the horse ride because an unexpected cool front came through. The BEST part was the cowboy breakfast outside. SO amazing- thick cut bacon, scrambled eggs, grits, homemade biscuits, pepper gravy, etc. The dinner we had was a HUGE juicy ribeye steak. The lunches were okay.
We loved our cottage and loved the feel of the ranch. We went on a different trail each time we rode the horses.
ONLY complaint is the coffee/tea tea is not good (I don't think they use filtered water) and the beds too hard. Next time I will just bring my own coffee pot for the room ;-)
