Linden Tree is a wonderful spot up in the Mountains of Croatia where time slows down and nature and tradition are everywhere. Only a 2.5 hour drive from Split, this sanctuary is a great respite from the heat of the coast and here in the mountains, even in Summer, there are cool nights and comfortable days. We stayed in the Casitas which are lovely and look brand new. The beds are large and comfortable, and the shower is powerful. The wonderful hosts provide plenty to do with activities each day, but have scheduled things so that there is also plenty of time to relax or explore. The food we had here at Linden Tree is some of the best we have had in Croatia! And so much food! It’s a bountiful feast for lunch and dinner each day. Maggie is such an excellent chef she should be awarded a Micheline Star. All the ingredients are fresh and her cooking is healthy ensuring even when you eat too much of it you still feel good. I am a vegetarian and Maggie went out of her way to prepare special dishes for me at each meal, everyone one of them better than the last. Hence, I would highly recommend this destination as Friendly For Vegetarian Travelers. I truly appreciated all the effort she put into accommodating my diet with such flair and great flavor. Linden Tree is a unique experience in Croatia; fun for friends or family!

My ten year old daughter and I came in the middle of Winter to Linden Tree Resort and it was absolutely beautiful (cant wait to return and see the place in the other seasons) - we enjoyed the silence, the fog, nature in wintersleep, the energy of this place in the very special velebit-area, of course the horse-riding, sitting infront of the fire, bathing in the hot tub under the stars, sleeping and eating so well. Its not so easy to describe our experience at the Ranch, the weekend-trip turned into a real journey, an adventure for both of us...- it can only be experienced! So glad I drove all the way to see my daughter galloping so brave and freely. "It's magic", she said. So glad I met Bruce & Meggi.

A stay at Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch is like nothing you have ever experienced! The people, the location, the place, the facilities (try the hot tub in the candel light and with Slovenian proseco...) but especialy the peace and positive energy of the place are just magnificent! Thank you Bruce, Meggi, Yogi for alowing into the family! Frédéric

We stayed here for 5 days and loved every minute of it. The owners have created a lovely community in the middle of stunning nature. With a few lodges, yurts and teepee tents, a pool, a wood-fired hot tub, a dining room where all guests come together to share dinner on a large communal table or on the terrace, a fire pit, archery, hammocks, bicycles, vegetable gardens, horses, dogs, cats, chicken and freshly made elderflower juice, it is a piece of heaven on earth. A good 20 minute drive to the nearest village with a supermarket, so make sure to stop there on your way in if there is anything you wish to bring. However, it is not needed to bring anything really as owners Bruce and Megi can take care of all your meals, from breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurt, home-baked bread, cold cuts, cheeses, jams and even Nutella and peanut butter for the little ones to lunch and full 3-course dinners. I have to mention Yogi who looked after us from the moment we arrived and Cindy who together with Megi cooked those amazing dinners that even the kids still talk about. Bruce also organizes day trips from kayaking to horse riding, hiking, visits to historical sites and a bear sanctuary and much more, with great stories about the history of the area. All in all a great place to get away from busy city life and enjoy nature while indulging in luxuries like a comfortable bed and freshly prepared dinners.

This was one of the best accommodations I have ever stayed in. The most important part is the atmosphere. Everything is so peaceful, quiet and relaxing. It is the perfect place to release any stress or anxiety you may have. We stayed in Buffalo Lodge which was stunning! It was so big, old-fashioned and cozy. And the bed! OMG, it was actually the best bed I have ever slept on. It was so good that I took a picture of a mattress and I'm planning on buying the same one for my home haha. Food was amazing as well as the whole concept of shared meals. I loved how you can connect with other visitors and hosts which makes it perfect for solo travelers as well. I especially loved breakfast by a campfire with freshly made pancakes and eggs. When it comes to hosts I can't express how kind and loving they are. Bruce and his team take time to make you feel appreciated and to take into concern your wishes. Location was outstanding. You could rent bikes and go around the village, drive by the river or go to the forest. However, my favorite part were the animals. Horses, sheeps, chickens, and dogs were all over the property. You could play with them as much as you want. Of course, horse riding is a special part. What I admired was the fact that they take time to teach you how to connect with horses and they adjust the riding based on your wishes and experiences. Therefore, you'll have an opportunity to ride whether you are a beginner or a pro. All in all, I can't recommend this accommodation enough. It is a perfect place for meditation and reflection. It's beyond just a regular holiday.
