Rooms are big and generous, comfortable. No daily service. One towel needs to keep for your stay.
Most of of the young seaonal staff is courteous and trys very hard.
Owners are knowledgable and courteous. Hard working.
Great for families with younger kids and folks that want to see beautiful sights and country.
Good 'other activities'; floating the river, Arthur the pig and his friend marshmallow the chicken, squirrel shooting, herding the horses (a little orientation would have been nice upon arrival).
We've been to guest ranches over the years, and came with an expectation of a good horse program. It didn't meet or even approach our expecations. Rides are mostly walking, unless you make special arrangements. If you ask and are allowed to do a more challenging ride; make sure they re-cinch/tighten your saddle before running as they typically don't. The riding lesson 'given to guest upon arrival' per their website didn't happen. Although now I think if we'd asked specifically for it they would've done it. Rides are generally one per day, with a generous time break in the middle
Food - Breakfast was a pretty good attempt. Lunch every day was horrid; processed meat and processed cheese sandwiches, bag of chips and pop. Not at all what we expected for the price. Dinner... maybe we just hit it on a bad few days, but it again wasn't good for 2 of the 3 days. The third day was good, but within our family at our table, some were served their entrees up to an HOUR later than others. Good thing we were drinking that night or we would have been really irritated. And we were the only ones being served at the time; the other large party was served at least 1/2 hour before we were called to dinner.
