I just came back last week from Rocking Horse Ranch which was my third time visit this year. (January, February and last week) It was fun being there in winter, but it was really FANTASTIC spending time there in fall. It's because of the nice weather, I could enjoy more on outside activities. I am definitely going back there again...

What a wonderful place - first it is very clean which I can appreciate and the lobby / bar / fireplace area smells just amazing! Everyone who worked there that we interacted with was friendly and accommodating. We did so much in 2 days - rock climbing wall, paddle boats, tennis, ping pong, organized sports, etc. It was nice to...

Recently returned from Columbus Day weekend from being there for the first time. It, seriously, could not have been better. I have 4 kids. 1 has multiple allergies and the staff was great and very accommodating. We celebrated 2 birthday parties and it went wonderfully. Everything was extremely well cared for from the horses to the buildings and equipment. Everyone...

This review is not of the place but of their pricing unfair policy. I wanted to book a weekend trip with my daughter: I was quoted at $1,100 for two nights! One the main page of the website you are not told that there is a two night minimum. In order to find out this information, you have to click...

Olga, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. I apologize for your frustration, I don’t believe the rate you were quoted was explained correctly (which is on us). Please call me directly – I’d really like the opportunity to describe how our rate policies are similar to those of other all-inclusive resorts and find a time and...

No kids.. 95% seniors.. which is GREAT! Our 2 year old had everything to himself..only a couple of kids here and there. Only problem I found was the food times.. little kids eat often and not at regular hours.. so dining was a bit of a problem for us. Bring your own food! They should have a open kitchen for...

We visited this facility with a troop of 7 cadette Girl Scouts for a Girl Scout Weekend. What a terrific time we had. There was so much to do and it was all top notch. From boating on the waterfront, to trampoline bungee jumping, to horse back riding, shooting, and so much more. The facility offered special events for our...

Just back from a FABULOUS weekend! The pools were wa and clean, the horse well taken care of with fun staff, the fun barn was a blast- paddle boats, kayaks, bungee jumping- all on a safe plot of land in the middle of a beautiful mountainous area. We felt perfectly safe letting our 13 year old Girl Scouts roam the...

My boyfriend and 4.5 year old son stayed at the ranch the 3rd week of September. We went off season to take advantage of the reduced rate for adults and the kids stay free offer. We feel in love with RHR as soon as we checked in. We were treated to a free lodging upgrade and a free lunch upon...
