There was so much to do and the staff was super nice and the small issues that arose, were address by the owner herself in a very professional manner. If you have kids and are looking for a different vacation, this is it.

Overall this was great. Mountain biking was challenging and very well led. Horses were in great shape and staff was very helpful. Food was delicious and many healthy options were available. Overall, the facilities were gorgeous. Planning your activities in advance is necessary, especially when it is busy.

We really had a great time. The food is decent, the people are nice, and there is a ton of fun things to do as a family. The bar is good to have, too! They are really strict on horseback riding, as I assume they have to be for liability reasons. The kids had an amazing time - they loved...

Room, location, staff, grounds, restaurant, etc., are all above average. There is only one complaint I have, and that was how the "wranglers" handled the people wanting to ride horses. They told us to show up 15 minutes early for every riding event, and yet they were clearly not equipped to handle those who did show up. We had to...

Our friends have been raving about this place for years so when my parents were looking for a destination to take their kids, grandkids to celebrate their 50th, this was the place! We had a great time and were always super active. The kids enjoyed the kids camp! We all enjoyed the horseback riding, tennis, mountain biking, fishing, sports courts,...

The ranch was amazing, with plenty to see and do. The wranglers were great, particularly Taylor and Angela! The horses were fantastic. The dog house saloon was a relaxing place to wind down at the end of the day, with the bar-tender Desiree serving excellent cocktails and great for a chat. The only piece of advice I would give to...

Our room was upgraded to a wonderfully large living space. Thank you! The staff was always friendly and helpful. The wranglers were by far the best part of the experience. A huge shout out to Angela, Chance and Taylor. The horses were beautiful and well trained.

We stayed at the TV Ranch for 3 nights as part of our spring break. I will break the review into 3 sections and start with the best. 1) Ranch; By far the highlight of the ranch is the horseback riding. The Wranglers at the ranch are top notch and we had a great experience with all the horseback riding...

There would not be space to describe the appalling way this Ranch treats guests. It is very stressful to deal with them. Before we had even arrived with them it took 5 days, 6 emails and constant calling before we managed even to make contact with them. We were travelling from a 6 year old and were filled with dread...

While we were interested in trying horseback riding, it was not the highlight of our time at the ranch. We absolutely loved the mountain biking and the food was delicious! We took advantage of tennis, swimming, and basically enjoying nature - especially the guided nature walks, sunsets and vivid constellations in the dark, clear skies. .
