The room was very nice and cosy. We really liked the style. For dinner we had some good vegetarian homemade food and there was also an option for dessert. For breakfast was a wide variety from oats to toast etc. It's wonderful to have breakfast on a terrace with a beautiful view of the lake. We also tried horseriding (for... More

From the start I sensed that this was a lovely place. Sofus and I paddled there for our first visit and drank some of their clean mineral water from 45 meters deep. Next day we walked there and drank their hibiscus ice tea and talked to Elodie. She invited us to stay at her lounge, so we went there the... More

I'm not a vegetarian, but if I had the Ranch's chef cooking for me, I honestly think I could manage. Also, the room was very clean and spacious. The view of the lake from the Ranch's balcony was awesome. Lake was beautiful to pseudo-kayak on. The horses were also wonderfully kind. Also, clean, wonderfully clear, no-additional-charge (a rarity in Ghana),... More

I would definitely recommend this place. Most probably the nicest view of the whole lake. Excellent food, healthy and with local products. The best thing are the horses. They are very well kept, friendly and perfect for beginners. My experience first time on a horse could not have been better. The owner was riding out with us. She explained me... More

Awesome vegetarian food. Drinkable mineral water from water taps. Beautiful rooms. Friendly service. Breathtaking view to the lake and horses. Does a human need anything more?? We started our journey to the ranch from takoradi by trotro. We hopped of in Bekwai and took another trotro to Kuntanse and from there a taxi which cost 35GH. Thanks to Elodies good... More

I think if there are vehicles that run from Kuntenase to the ranch as there are to other villages, it would increase the number of visitors as their transportation fares reduce. Thank you

The Green Ranch is a very comfortable and engaging place to stay. The room was very comfortable, the food delicious, and the owners extremely accommodating. We felt like family from the start.
