The website doesn't do this slice of heaven justice. Upon driving up to the ranch, we were amazed at not only the beauty, but the tidy manicured grounds. The suite we were led to was nothing short of perfect. Great layout and lighting, cozy surroundings and woodsy charm. The most minor details were thought of. The bed was a technological dream (Natapoc suite). We had the convenience of A/C as well as the charm of a fireplace. This place was so peaceful at all times of day or night.
Now, let's talk about the breakfasts. Rachelle is our kind of cook. Hearty, yet healthy breakfasts that never left us wanting. I don't recall getting hungry til dinner time the whole time we were there.
There is plenty of wildlife that surrounds this haven. Birds aplenty. The evening brought out an amazing display of bats flittering about, and the early morning howls of coyotes was a rare treat.
This is an adults only facility (which attracted us) and no pets are allowed. However, David and Rachelle were kind enough to share their resident pets (no, there is no double standard here) with us. Raya, their Russian Blue is so sweet and shy, but Tai, their 3 month-old Malamute is as playful and large as a bear cub. My wife could not get enough of him and she can't wait to get back to play with him again (even though he may out-weigh her by then).
My wife and I (married 17 years) wish that this venue was available for our wedding. It is absolutely amazing what you can do to decorate this historic barn and grounds for a wedding of almost any size.
Lastly, and certainly not least, the hosts are terrific. David and Rachelle are truly down to earth. The more we talked, the more we felt like these people were kindred spirits. We truly felt that we forming a friendship as we sat on the wrap-around porch chatting with them. They are dedicated to making their guests feel as comfortable as possible. They are passionate about their endeavor, and they truly want to give you the best experience possible.
We look forward to staying at their little slice of Heaven again.
