I stayed here for a few days during a cold March, but that didn't stop us having fun here. The staff made us very welcome, as was Hass the local dog who was chilling out in the sun. Our cabin was fantastic with great views over the wild west. We did wrap up and watched the sun go down from our rocking chairs and our complementary bottle of wine. The hot tub has amazing views too, and a great way to relax after a long drive to the ranch.
Each morning we went to feed the long horns, they are very friendly towards humans and aren't as intimidating as they look when you have their food. Jay, the cowboy, made us feel like one of the gang and was always making sure we were enjoying our stay.
Clint (another cowboy) took us on our horse ride and told us all about the history of the area, from the Native American Indians to when the white man came, to the oil boom, at first glance you could thing nothing has ever happened here, but this is far from the truth.
There is also a basketball court which you can bring your own ball or rent from the front desk for no charge, also a volleyball court, outdoor fitness course and hammocks. So lots to do after your activities.
However, the best highlight for me was the steaks in the restaurant, I can't recommend it enough.
All in all, a great few days away.
