I spent 9 months traveling across the country and staying in 100's of hotels. This place is easily in my top 5 favorite. I enjoy it so much that I continually go back to stay. My wife and I treat it not so much as a place to stay on your way to somewhere else, but as a get away from it all destination. It has a wonderful location that makes you feel like you are close enough to town to get what you need but far enough away to feel some peace and relaxation.
The rooms are all clean and well taken care of. You have the choice of many rooms in the main building and more isolated cabins on your own. Judy the manager is amazingly friendly and helpful. She's always there for whatever you need.
When we discussed all of the places we wanted to get married, my wife and I couldn't think of anywhere we wanted to have the ceremony rather than the Ranch. We were able to reserve the entire hotel for family and friends. It made it a very wonderful day for us to spend with our loved ones in one of the places we feel most at home. After the weekend I had many friends and family tell me that after originally wondering why we would choose a location like the Ranch that now they understood.
I also feel like all of the bad things i have read about it are unfounded. It seems like if you're looking for things to complain about, you will find them. If you go to the Ranch with an open mind a a quest to relax, you will find it. I almost feel nervous about saying all of these things about it because if it becomes too popular for me to get a reservation, i will be pretty depressed.
Overall, The Ranch is not the Hilton but thats what is pretty nice about it. Nice rooms, lots of character, great hospitality, and no excuse but to sit by and watch the world go by. I hope to return there many times in the future
