We enjoyed our visit immensely. Thank you to the wonderful, friendly, caring staff. Jim Gaines is great fun and attends to every detail with great care. The food is fabulous! Our family, from the youngest to the oldest (my 95 year old mother) enjoyed our stay. The horses are terrific and the wranglers really know their business. Everyone enjoyed the rides. Even the very young children, including my nephew who is blind, were all able to ride on a horse - they loved it. We especially loved the cool evenings, sitting out on the deck around the wonderful fire, singing, and making S'mores! The trap shooting was a blast! Thank you, Jim, for your patience and great teaching! We want to come back every year. One thing that would be a good addition is an organized hike - led by someone who knows the area and the trees, etc. Thank you - please let the chef know that she and her crew did an exceptional job - everything was so delicious!
