We reserved the entire lodge and the Wrangler cabin last weekend. Kristin and Brian are wonderfully accommodating hosts. The rooms were very clean and nicely furnished in a ranch decor. Brian cooked delicious breakfasts both mornings and a phenomenal steak dinner Sat night. We had bonfires both nights with plenty of firewood and good company. We did not take advantage... More

This is a great place. We stayed for a wedding at the Castle. Close and welcoming. We stayed in the cottage which was a nice private little house. Breakfast was delish! The small cottage was great if you like a B&B but want a little more privacy.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Very relaxed and very informal setting, which was perfect for us. There is the 2 story main lodge, with about 8 rooms, and a detached cabin. Rooms vary in size and bed arrangements, so read the info carefully, or call. We stayed in the "Desperado" room, King bed was very comfortable. Room was clean... More

We live in the area and took our granddaughters there for horseback riding. If there were more stars to give that would be appropriate. We reserved a one hour ride at $35 per person, I would have gladly paid $50 for what they got. Cassie was one of their guides and she is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL with the riders. She gave... More

6 miles from the White Pine Trail, we found Kristen and Brian very kind and their B&B providing a perfect respite from biking. Nice place, wonderful ambience and the opportunity to ride horses as well. What could be better?

This is not a slam against Sue, who runs this guest ranch and is the chief cook and bottle washer. We stayed in the little white cabin, which was very private and rustic -- emphasis on rustic. The beds left us with backaches. There was a coffeemaker and filters but no coffee or cups. The only comfortable place to sit... More

We didn't stay here but we are dinner. I ordered a pulled chicken BBQ sandwich with a couple sides and it was perhaps the best BBQ I've had. Their roasted chicken (which I sampled off of fiance's plate) was ridiculous. The waitstaff are your cooks and they are all extremely friendly. We loved it all so much we came back... More

Nice place to stay with family atmosphere. CLEAN. Great food. Horses are well trained. Very relaxing. Close to things to do. Very quiet place to go. I have gone about 4 times. It has the size to be a meeting place for friends or privacy for newly or oldly weds.
