This was our 7th year returning to woodside. We had a great time with family and friends. As always the barn staff is wonderful and makes you feel like your part of the Woodside family. Office staff is very welcoming and chef Jafar and staff does a great job feeding us and is always very accommodating. There are a few... More

Fun place for adults and kids. We were never bored. We were never hungry. The lunches and dinners were wonderful. The morning breakfast ride was great. It was so nice eating a full hot breakfast outside. I do wish that the weeds in the lake were cleared a bit. It made fishing a little difficult. Outside of that, we had... More

Our 8 year old niece wanted to go on a trail ride where she could choose her horse (and have it be a "tall" horse...according to her). The staff at Woodside Ranch were extremely courteous and helpful...AND safety conscious. Our 8 year old niece had to take a short pre-qualification lesson with our guide...to make sure she could handle a... More

We are thrilled to hear you and the family had a great visit and that each of you found the perfect horses that fit the bill on your ride. It's nice to hear your niece enjoyed her time taking her quick lesson before hitting the trails and she was able to find her tall mount. We look forward to seeing... More

We went horseback riding here. They take good care of the horses which was important to us. The ride did not have any trotting because it was so hot which was fine because they really care about the horses. The trail went through the woods which is pretty typical for trail rides. Very enjoyable

Glad to hear you had a fun ride on the ranch even if the weather kept things at a slower pace on our trails. As you mentioned safety is our #1 concern with our guests and animals and we are happy that we could accommodate both for your group during your visit. We hope to see you again soon and... More

I really don't want to give Woodside 5 stars - I want to give them 10 stars! This place is unlike any place I have ever been to. It's the exact opposite of what corporate America has turned vacations into. We were going up to Mauston for our son to play in a baseball tournament at the nearby Woodside sports... More

This place was great! We enjoyed getting away from electronics and experiencing nature and animals and FAMILY. The staff is friendly, especially Jaffar in the main kitchen and Brian the barn manager.

We were staying in the Dells and were looking for a place off the beaten path. After reading reviews of other places, this sounded the best. It did not dissapoint.

We didn't know what to expect, we enjoyed every moment of our 2 day stay. We went early in the season and had beautiful weather to enjoy the scenery and all the horses. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. we will definitely return to experience all the other activities as well as more horseback riding.
