Context: widely travelled in the USA; very many cities, parks, beaches, road trips, cruises etc..........but never been to a dude ranch (and never been horse riding!). A wonderful stay from start to finish and would love to return. Ranch was lovely and peaceful, with wonderful views and great food. Staff were superb, helpful and friendly. If you don't click with the horse riding, there are many other activities on offer from fishing and mountain biking, to hiking and tennis and, of course, the spa. Loved the wranglers, who were totally pleasant and helpful. Always reticent about singling out individuals, but a big shout out to Melissa (activities), Karen, Cat and Joe (wranglers) and (of course) Lisa (Doghouse saloon) who was absolutely brilliant! Overall, could not recommend a better place to stay for anyone thinking about going for a dude ranch experience. Wonderful!!!!!
