Anyone that wants to be spoiled by excellent service from what has to be one of the friendliest hotel staffs in the country should book a stay at this wonderful hunting retreat. Every member of the staff from guest check in to hunting guides as well as the customer service coordinator made our stay as fun and comfortable as possible.
And the real reason we were there was the Pheasant hunting which was spectacular!!
Our group consisted of 12 shooters, all decent shots, and we had no trouble getting our limit before noon each day thanks to the exceptional hunting guides that put us on more birds than I have ever seen. The guides also had plenty of great dogs that made the toughest of retrieves look easy. All around great work, the best out there as far as we were concerned and lots of fun.
The lodge offered picturesque views as well as plenty of places to relax and visit. It was a weekend of football viewing in the evening as well as spirited competition in the huge game room. But the favorite hangout had to be the "cigar room" that was well stock with after dinner drinks that we keep chilled on the ice bar while we watched TV and enjoyed cigars after our evening meal.
Speaking of dinner, the food that Chef Daniel prepared would rival any world class restaurant. Three meals per day accompanied by great wine as well as appetizers before supper that were all themed around the lodge and its location such as Walleye bites and Pheasant dip.
I would recommend this experience for anyone, hunter or not, you will enjoy your stay and be looking forward to the next time you can make it back to Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge just like we are.
