We spent only three days there and should have stayed longer. My friends and I were really surprised at how the staff treated us like family. Bill, Chris, and Kid, showed us the real cowboy life and we highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a great time. They also went out of their way to teach us Canadians how to do the Two Step. The story by the campfire was remarkable as with the hay ride. They also have a fitness program there. My friends and I noticed how much of a gentlemen these cowboys were and now have such respect for them.
The rooms were nicer than I expected and the food was awesome.
The trail rides lead by Bill, Kid and Eilene were great too. They really made sure we felt safe and had always kept an eye on us. So if you are a new rider, you're in good hands.
Cheryl at the office was also very friendly and answered all my concerns about the ranch promptly. This ranch was very well organized and cared about their guests. I'm so glad we picked the right ranch in February as it was not too busy and the weather was great too.
