“Absoulutely Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

I cannot say enough about this place! You have the option of going to the Green Ranch for only the horse ride, and/ or you have the option of staying at their lovely accommodation. The owner is just wonderful, caring and very approachable with any concerns you have re: accommodation, food, or horseback riding. Although I hardly have any experience, I felt safe with her choice of horse for me, as well as her directions as to how to manage my horse.
The accommodations are CLEAN, very spacious and Afro-modern in design. Each room has a view of lake Bosomtwe that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your room, shared deck, or dining area/deck. Ahhh...coffee watching the sunrise, and wine watching the sun set. Fantastic food (Vegan/Vegetarian).... Fantastic and caring service. After staying here, I find it CRIMINAL that other hotels/resorts in Ghana charge double or more, and do not come close to the cleanliness, great service, atmosphere and style that the Green Ranch provides. Highly recommended, even if you are not Vegetarian or ride horses. Just lovely....

“Must Visit if in Ghana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful weekend getaway! We're both studying abroad for the semester and needed to be in a different environment for a while and this place was perfect! Amazing food and hospitality! The horses are well taken care of and we loved seeing them just roam around freely! The view from the dining area is absolutely amazing as well! We recommend this place to anyone! Thanks so much Elodie! xoxo

“Best place at Lake Bosomtwe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Visiting the Green Ranch was the highlight of my 5 month stay in Kumasi. Elodie has created a beautiful, serene environment for relaxation and engaging conversation. Her food is by far the best to be had anywhere near Lake Bosomtwe, and the view of the lake from her upper deck restaurant is incredible. The rooms are very nice, beautifully decorated with comfortable beds, but also affordable. I wish I could come back here every weekend.

“Congratulations Green Ranch for being truly different!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Thank you, Elodie - your vision and hard work to create something special, quiet, green, intriguing and centered around horses and nature has resulted in all that and more.

Our visit to the Green Ranch was the highlight of a 3 week trip to West Africa. Relaxing, peaceful, good food, exceptional talk.

Will never forget an exciting all-day ride around the lake. (less experienced riders would love the shorter rides, too!)

Lovely rooms. The attention to detail, simple little touches made it all just right. Even board games and books on the deck.

A refreshing interpretation of hospitality, entertainment and friendship. Well done!
