This is a great family run place. The staff is very enthusiastic and helpful. They tried to teach 4 left footed New Yorkers how to country dance. There were opportunities to go horseback riding 2x a day and while we were there to learn how to use a bullwhip, use a bow and arrow, shot at a target.The food was delicious but don't miss the back country breakfast that you can get to either on horseback or by wagon. It is cooked over a fire and included biscuits, eggs, bacon, ham, potatoes, a chicken dish, gravy. All while we were being seranaded by a cowboy.The furniture in the cabins is a little dated.
