We booked our family of 9- 4 adults and 5 kids- ages 8-12, the night before. They were able to get us all booked together for the morning ride. We had a fabulous guide, who was very patient and helpful with the kid riders. The horses were beautiful and very gentle. We had a beautiful ride! It was such a...

I made reservations for horseback riding for my entire family a month in advance. I called over the weekend to confirm, but nobody was there to answer to phone. After waking up at 5:30 on Monday morning, I called to confirm our reservation as we were walking out the door. I was told, in a very matter-of-fact way, without an...

Our family stayed at the ranch recently and had a great time. It was the first time we rode horses, and atvs. My wife was a little reluctant at first, but after a brief lesson she relaxed, and started to feel a lot more comfortable. The accommodations were adequate as we stayed a few days on the ranch. The rooms...

The floor is tile with little throw rugs. These rugs haven't been cleaned in years! i pulled the bedspread...

We were referred by another hotel in Fairplay because the rooms in town were sold out. This place is a few miles outside of town and was not really what we were looking for. I think it'd be great fun for families with children, though! There were ATV and horse back trips offered through the property which looked like a...

I called on a Friday night to get a reservation for Saturday night because another hotel was full and mentioned that this one had just had a one room cancellation. I made the reservation and gave the man on the phone my credit card to reserve it for late arrival. We arrived around 9:30 at night, the only person in...

About a month after our wedding, my husband and I decided to to take a weekend trip away since our honeymoon had to be post-poned. We searched the web and decided it would be fun to go horseback riding. When we arrived at the American Safari Ranch, we were taken back by the authenticity of the place. It looked as...

These are the Rudest people we have ever come across at a business. We gave our credit card information to hold the reservation, but paid in cash when we arrived. The whole thing was screwed up.

In regards to said client rides here are set up for small groups in order to provide a relaxing environment to enjoy our spectacular views. In this case one client arrived late and missed the scheduled ride. When you arrive late it is true that the ride may have already been sent out without you in order to accomodate the...
