We just came back (literally just came back last night) from the ranch and all I can say is what an amazing trip! Being from NYC we are quite the "city slickers," and going to the ranch presented all kinds of new and fun activities, sights, the whole gambit! It was even the first time for roasting s'mores around the campsite for my boyfriend!
We stayed in the Josephine cabin - beautiful with views of the lake and the creek. Sitting on the porch was probably one of the most tranquil settings I have ever been in. Horse back riding and fly fishing were wonderful activities - the horseback trip is a bit harder than I expected, but loved it! Fly fishing was an entirely new experience for me, and Flat Creek is a great place to learn. Since the creek is so remote from town, it remains pretty unfished, save for the ranch guests, making it stock full of trout so even a newbie like me could have some success.
Food - wonderful meals included beef tenderloin, chicken and halibut. I must say having all your meals planned out for you is super nice - it's like being a kid again! Except it's all 5 star luxury and gourmet food :)
Tray and Shelby and the whole staff, Alex, Ariel, Eric, (I can't name them all!) were wonderfully welcoming, without being intrusive either - it really can be a place for solitude if that's what you are seeking.
There are only 5 guest cabins, so really only 14-15 guests at any given time so you can imagine how peaceful it is. The ranch is pretty remote - about a 1.5 hr ride on some rough terrain, so definitely don't try to make the drive yourself (let them pick you up :).
All in all - absolutely delightful and we hope to come back soon.
I just saw the 15% discount in August - if you can swing it - DO IT! you won't regret it!!!
