I read the reviews before going to DTR. I agree with all of them. The place has wonderful wood beams, decorated in a western theme, I had the BEST massage ever from Mary, Nikki really knows her stuff when it came to leading our 2 1/2 hour ride and the grounds were fantastic!
I gave 4 stars because like another review said, the service was slow and the food was good but not great. Prices were $$-$$$. Staff was very pleasant. The s'mores by the fire were good but the marshmallows could have been fresher. While the pebble tile surround was a nice addition to our shower, the shower head was quite a disappointment. No water came from the center and was not up to the room standards.
We chose this time of the year because the rooms were at their cheapest, $188. for a king size bed, fireplace, 2 comfy leather chairs, Ipod docking station and 1 of only two enclosed porch areas. This room usually sells for $250-350 during high season.
There's a fun game room downstairs with bowling (skee-ball type balls), shuffle board etc. Also a nice little movie theater with different movies shown at 6 & 8p.
I will definitely return for another horse ride and massage!
