We had a fabulous time at the Rock Ranch with our baby and 3-year-old. We stayed over Columbus Day weekend when the ranch was open three days in a row. This house is an easy walk to the main ranch grounds and was convenient enough for us to return for naptime mid-day. It's also close to the farm market, where we bought dinner to heat up at the house in the evening. The house was clean and well-maintained with recent renovations. The huge bathroom was handy for getting the kids cleaned up and the washing machine came in handy too. We will definitely be back.
The house included a gas grill and a fire pit with wood, with grill tools and marshmallow sticks provided. Next time, I'm bringing steak and s'mores supplies!
For others with young kids: this house is next to a busy road with fast truck traffic all night and the door locks can be easily opened by kids with no key needed. We barricaded the doors overnight for peace of mind.

We stayed at the Herdsman House for a weekend (2 adults and a toddler). It was a perfect weekend getaway for us. We wanted to visit The Rock Ranch and decided that we could spend more time enjoying the ranch if we stayed on property. The home was a perfect size for our little family and is beautifully updated/decorated. We had strawberries growing right outside our door and were just a short walk from the playground and a little pond where my daughter could see geese (as well as cows off in the distance). For our day exploring The Rock Ranch, we were close enough to our house to easily go back to the house for a break and for our daughter to take a short nap (you can only push a 2 year old so far before they need to rest). We loved our little weekend "on the farm." There was even a nest with baby birds on our front porch!

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to the Rock Ranch. The rental property "Herdsman was beautiful, exceptionally clean (like new) clean. It had every thing we needed. It was a very quiet environment (which is what I wanted) - no electronic gadgets ect and NO TV - which as great! We will most definitely return for another visit. The Rock Ranch staff were so friendly but professional. It was a pleasure interacting with all the staff at the Rock Ranch.
It is a fantastic place to take your family and spend quality time TOGETHER! Parents leave your cell phones/electronic gadgets in the car and focus/reconnect with your children or grandchildren for 24 hours. You will love it. Thank you.
