Spent Christmas Eve & Day at the Ranch & had a magical experience. Staff continues to excel at customer service. Accommodations were “Five Star” and the food was “out of this world!” Even with 17 inches of snow on the ground, we were able to enjoy two spectacular horse rides & enjoyed snow shoeing around the ranch grounds. We could have fished if we would have been hardy enough! Everything about this Ranch is First Class. Remains our favorite vacation spot; we will return again & again.
