Arranged a mini-vacation with my grade school aged nieces on short notice. We stayed in one of the two-bedroom cabins with full kitchen and bath. There was a two night minimum stay requirement. It was nice to know the bedding, towels, pans, and dishes would all be provided. I even precooked parts of the meals at home and used the microwave to reheat. This vacation the focus was not on food preperation but on enjoying the outdoors in the little time we had.
The cabin had a good size screen porch with patio furniture which was perfect for dining al fresco. The bugs were kept out, but not the views of the Missouri River. Gorgeous. Inside we had the option of AC. The first night was not so hot and we were able to capture some nice cross ventilation breezes. The second night we needed the AC for sure. Turned it on in the afternoon and the place was cool enough by bedtime.
The girls had their first trail ride. They are still talking about it 2 weeks later. The wranglers did a good job of matching the girls to the horses and providing an introductory lesson on riding. Some of the horses looked pretty old, but the equipment was in good shape. The older horses were probably better choices for the inexperienced riders.
The pool was very clean. There was a nice springy, diving board. Went for a hike one day and ended up with a lot of ticks. I am not sure if it is related to the river flooding things or not, but it has been a bad year for ticks and mosquitos at home too. The staff we encountered were all friendly.
