A wonderful laid-back late summer vacation at Panther Valley Ranch for my 3 boys and me.
The first 4 nights, we stayed in the Ranch suite, which was great. Spacious, roomy and authentically built from the ranch's native pine and cedar trees.
Slept like a log in the king-size bed with 2 boys in the bunk beds and 1 on the couch.
After 4 nights, we didn't want to leave!
However, a family from Houston had reserved the Ranch suite for the weekend, so Roger (the owner) and his manager Ann were super-nice about it and moved us up to the Loft for one more night.
Loved it there too.
Mornings at the ranch are amazing: Keurig coffee on the front porch with pristine views of the ranch followed by a hot bath in the Jacuzzi. What a great way to start the day.
It was also nice having Dish TV so we could watch some of the Olympics.
But to me, the best part about Panther Valley Ranch is that it's laid-back and peaceful, yet minutes from downtown Hot Springs and our favorite haunts like Mickey's BBQ, McClards and The Pancake Shop.
Also, some of Arkansas' best spots for swimming, hiking, biking, fishing and boating are nearby.
A 5-star experience all the way around --- perfect getaway for city-dwelling families.
Now it's back-to-work and back-to-school, but fond memories of the ranch remain.
