We came to Rawhide Ranch for three nights during Spring Break; it was our family of five and another family of five. The place was a perfect family getaway. The Ranch House was so nice and the perfect size. We loved the fireplace and old tub showers. It was a bonus not to have a TV and just enjoy being together playing games. The kitchen was perfect for us to make great meals for the 10 of us. We also had a fun time in the backyard fire pit. We spent time looking at the stars, playing the guitar, singing songs and of course, making s’mores. We were able to take the first horse trail ride for the day. We got up early to help get the horses ready for riding. That is a must for kids; they got to walk the horses to the barn and then brush and groom them for the day. Our kids had a blast doing that.

Oh, by the way, the ranch hands are AMAZING. They made my kids feel so welcome and treated them as family. I was so worried for my 9 year old son who has some health issues and fears. I wasn’t sure he would ride a horse but he did so well and Gil made his day by being so encouraging. It was perfect and he ending up doing the zip lines as well. My 5 year old did the pony ride and it was the best thing ever. My daughter had so much fun and with no time limit. She can’t wait to ride Pepper again!

We definitely were treated like family on The Ranch. It was a great experience and we can’t wait to get back there again soon. I recommend that you take part in as many activities on The Ranch as possible. You will not be disappointed and the price is family friendly!

I am blown away by your amazing review of the ranch. Rawhide Ranch USA is a unique lodging destination and we don't pretend to be the perfect location for everyone. It would seem by your review that we were most definitely the location for your family.
By the way, I enjoyed the guitar playing, so whoever it was in your family, tell that individual they are really good.
I hope that you guys do return to see what new additions to the ranch we have created for you, our guests.


Sincerely,
Derek W Clifford

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.

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!
