I traveled with a group of friends and our horses for a riding weekend in the South Warner Mountain Wilderness, and we stayed at the Cockrell's Ranch outside of Cedarville. The guest houses are absolutely beautiful. The décor is very attractive, with the majority of the pictures on the walls taken by Debra Cockrell herself. She is a very talented... More

a relaxing visit on a working ranch, as the hay was being baled while we sipped our coffee outside on the patio. Enjoyed watching the deer and quail in the nearby pastures. Beautiful flowers and landscaping outside, while indoors beautiful photos and western decorations.

We did meet her son who gave us an overview of the ranch and it's history. This is fascinating in itself. Beautiful restored ranch house with all the amenities. We sat in the... More

A beautiful home in a beautiful setting. The larger lodge is perfect for a family or group of friends, though the elderly will need to be careful to not trip over the small steps and ledges, especially around the toilet.

What a wonderful surprise this place was! It surpassed all our expectations. Its in such a beautiful setting. The accommodations were very comfortable, spacious, extremely clean and was stocked better than my own home! Debra the owner is also such a delight. I would like to come back sometime and spend a couple of days.
