Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have been going to the ranch for about 7 years and it just keeps getting better my kids love it there the horse riding and zip lining are great and the people really go out of their way to make it a fun trip. Go and have a look for yourself you will love it.

Room Tip: it you stay in the buck house I love the book rooms it just gives you a little more room when you ha...

My family and I have been going to Rawhide Ranch since 2008. We normally rent the ranch house, it is amazing and holds the family and the inlaws. This trip was a father and sons getaway. We stayed 2nights in the teepee and loved it. My sons 7&14 had a blast! We spent time with the horses and did a night hop on the zip lines. Derek and his staff are the best. Not to mention you are 5mins from town perfect secluded spot. And the best there is NO TV or Internet.

Lbuteau,
You know the ranch family appreciates your return visits every year and we are looking forward to your next. We appreciate all our ranch customers but especially those who have returned year after year. We have a great job here, we get to become part of a larger family. We get to see kids return every year and enjoy watching them grow. Tell the boys the ranch said howdy and to stay good....or I won't let them ride when they come next year..

Thanks,
Derek

This is probably the most affordable getaway I've found that includes trail riding. The staff is friendly, yet professional, and safety-conscious with the activities they provide. We took a peek at the lodging, and it seems very nice for the price. It's a small, quiet place; so it seems like it would make for a very relaxing getaway. We definitely plan to return.

Susan,
Thank you for the nice comments about the ranch. We strive to be an affordable place and keep our costs at a level where an average Joe could afford to come. It is a tough battle with the constant increase of expenses but we have been able to keep the prices down. That is never more apparent than the Banded Rooster, our new dining hall. We struggled at a price point and finally settled on the bare minimum of fees. We want to be able to afford our newest addition but still make it affordable enough for an average family to stay, eat and have some memory creating adventures. I hope you guys do return and stay a night or two with us.

Sincerely,
Derek

Wonderful place to stay. It was so peaceful and quiet, rooms are quite cozy and enjoyed sitting up late by the fireplace. It was a girls getaway weekend, really enjoyed the little town of Nashville and it was such a treat to stay at the ranch. We all had a great time. Its a great family vacation spot.

Room Tip: My daughter stayed last weekend in Doc Holiday room, it was a big room with double doors to open out...

It as always surprising to see the amount girls retreats we have at the ranch. We seem to be growing in popularity as the girls escape. We all know you need another, so don't stay a stranger.

I stayed here for 2 nights, I did not have time to do any activities on this trip but will definitely be coming back again!! The Ranch was so nice and peaceful. Exactly what I needed for my Spring Break getaway!!! Everyone I met at the Ranch was so friendly and made me feel like I was family and not just a guest!!! Very nice place to stay whether you are by yourself or with your family!!!

Cfollowell,
It is a shame that you were unable to utilize the ranch for activities and that you were here before the Banded Rooster was open for breakfast. I do hope you return and it is before the next spring break.

This is a great weekend or overnight trip. There is so much outdoor fun. Activities are abound. People are so nice. No tv or phones. People have to go outside and play games in the evening around the fire. It was a refreshing time away.

Ribow,
It is not shocking the amount of people that love the lack of telephones and televisions. The point of the ranch is to disconnect to reconnect and it would seem you succeeded. The different season bring different experiences on the ranch. I hope you guys return when it is warmer but keep in mind, with the warmth comes a lot more guests. There is nothing like the ranch on a busy night with the campfire being the melting pot of different people.

Don't stay a stranger!

Eight of us "hopped the hollers" today at Rawhide Ranch. What a blast! "Hopping" is accomplished with a six-run course of zip lines laid out among the trees and ravines. The course is laid out well, and though even the longest (and highest) run is easy to accomplish--there's plenty of thrills for the young (and not so young). All of this fun was made even better by our guides Fritz and Amanda who entertained us from start to finish with local lore and comic relief. But despite all the kidding around, we never doubted that we were in VERY safe hands. If you're in or anywhere near Brown County, be sure to check out the Rawhide Ranch--and Hop the Hollers!

Thank you for choosing Rawhide Ranch USA and Holler Hoppin' Zip Lines this January. It amazes me the amount of people who wait for the warmer weather and are not as adventurous as your group. Fritz and Amanda are amazing guides and a barrel of laughs. Your review is spot on and tells us that we continue to provide a great time mixed with a safe operation. I hope you guys return to experience the rest of the ranch amenities including our new kitchen/dining area opening this March.

Thank you again and don't stay a stranger.
