Feedback from Travelers
The ranch exceeded my expectations. So relaxing and amazing. Food was delicious and plentiful. I see this as an annual solo retreat.
The food was very good and fresh. The staff were all very helpful. The room could use a little more light and a screen in the bathroom window. We thought that the tour of the ranch was very informative and gave us a great understanding of how the ranch worked and the information about the species living on the grounds was great.
We meet the owner, very friendly. Absolutely loved this place and the food! Will definitely go back and visit again. Great concept.
