We've been to Woodside in the past and looked forward to returning to unwind after the holidays. The staff is as friendly as ever and we felt at home right away. We enjoyed a few of the horseback rides and nice conversations with Dan in the tavern. All of the wranglers are terrific and are very patient if you haven't... More

My whole family loves Woodside Ranch. I've also been taking groups of clients there for retreats and everyone has had a wicked good time. The staff is excellent, the property is beautiful and their horses are steady. The wranglers help make riders of any experience level feel comfortable on the ride. (Especially Marianne, Anita, Brian, Kelli, Rayne, Karen and Alanna.)... More

The staff are exceptional in their desire to please and make your stay the most enjoyable. There are a variety of cabins and main house lodging. Cabins have fireplaces and there is a large supply of firewood. I particularly enjoyed the food--thank you Jaffir, and the horseback riding, great gentle horses that are well cared for and not overused. Excellent... More

We just spent three days here. Loved it! It was so much fun. The staff was friendly and helpful. I loved the trail rides with the great horses. Food was amazing. We booked for a few days next year. Can't wait to go back.

Just returned from a 4 day stay at Woodside with my 12 year old granddaughter and her friend. We all had a great time. We rode everyday, sometimes all 6 rides! If you weren't riding, we were in the pool or eating or sleeping. We all had our favorite horses. The Wranglers and entertainment staff and cooks were awesome! Fun... More

Do you love horses? Do you want to ride multiple times a day? Woodside Ranch definitely fit the bill for me and my daughter. We were on a horse within an hour of arriving. What I loved about this place is the freedom to do six rides a day and also bond with your favorite horse or horses. You really... More

We made a trip down memory lane to Woodside Ranch recently. This is a hidden gem. The grounds are magnificent with 1200 acres of wooded farmland, stables, sports fields, gym, fitness center, business center, cabins, lodge, and more. This is a no-frills place in the very best way. You get what you need and you like it. The staff is... More

To celebrate our 50th anniversary we decided to take our family of 11 to the Woodside Ranch during the month of July. I can honestly say that our 5 day adventure far exceeded our expectations. As proof of our enjoyable stay, our teen-aged grandchildren voiced not a single complaint. Not only did we enjoy the daily horseback rides conducted by... More
