After a week stay in Jackson, we ended our vacation with a stay at Flat Creek Ranch. The crew picked us up when we dropped off our rental car we had been using. They had ice cold water waiting for our 1 hour and fifteen minute drive up to the ranch. Our family of 5 which included 3 teenagers 13-19 had the Cissy cabin. It is a 2 room cabin with a queen bed in the bed room. They set up the futon couch and two cots for the kids. This did make the living room rather crowded, but we really didn't spend much time inside so it wasn't a problem. The bathroom had a normal size clawfoot tub with a hand held shower nosal. There was a lovely large front porch that overlooks the lake. We had several cute critters that lived under the deck - they are like a small groundhog.
Since there were 5 of us in one bathroom and the shower nosal takes some talent to use, we frequented the shower house down the road. It was nice and spacious, very clean and handy for laying out your clothes and towel. It was enjoyable to trott down the road to shower.
The lodge provided wonderful meals. Cocktails on the deck before dinner were relaxing and a great way to reflect on your day. The three nights we stayed we had pork tenderloin, beef tenderloin and prosciutto wrapped chicken breasts with mushroom filling. For lunch we had pasta, wonderful thick grilled cheese and soup, and for breakfast we had a variety of egg dishes, fruit and cereals.
Our activities were tailored to us each day. We went on a 2 1/2 hour horseback ride up into some even more beautiful country, learned to fly fish, and took various hikes depending on our abilities. Also available was a canoe, horseshoes and pingpong. One night we made a bonfire.
The wildlife included a pair of bald eagles, several moose in the lake, show-off hummingbirds, beautiful butterflies.
All the staff was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable and happy.
