We visited the ranch in early Oct. The setting is idyllic, the cabin was warm and cosy, and the staff, exceptional. I call them 'staff' but, from the first moment , we felt like a family. They all went out of their way to ensure that our stay was everything we wanted it to be. And the food? Well I definitely want to adopt Kristin. She has inspired me to take up cookery again. We were lucky enough to see bears up close on the first evening. Had we gone home then, we would have been happy. But the stay just got better. It was as though the bears were coming to see us, not the other way round. Our guides were excellent - knowing just how far we could approach without disturbing the bears. And also knowing when we needed to retreat.... Rafting was such fun, and we saw the bears from the river. We met some lovely fellow guests too. Can't wait for our next visit. Highly recommended!
