Such an amazing horseback riding experience! The workers were so amiable and the horses were absolutely beautiful. The ride was truely unique in that they allowed us full control of the horse. No nose-to-tail trail ride here! We had the option to "blaze our own trail" through the trees and even gallop when the terrain permitted. Yummy free lunch at...

Took my wife and 6 yr old daughter out for a ride this morning. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more!! Regina was our guide. She was very friendly and helpful, especially for my daughter. The owner and staff did a nice job matching us up with horses that met our ability. While the owner is certainly direct and some...

We booked our family of 9- 4 adults and 5 kids- ages 8-12, the night before. They were able to get us all booked together for the morning ride. We had a fabulous guide, who was very patient and helpful with the kid riders. The horses were beautiful and very gentle. We had a beautiful ride! It was such a...

I made reservations for horseback riding for my entire family a month in advance. I called over the weekend to confirm, but nobody was there to answer to phone. After waking up at 5:30 on Monday morning, I called to confirm our reservation as we were walking out the door. I was told, in a very matter-of-fact way, without an...

Our family stayed at the ranch recently and had a great time. It was the first time we rode horses, and atvs. My wife was a little reluctant at first, but after a brief lesson she relaxed, and started to feel a lot more comfortable. The accommodations were adequate as we stayed a few days on the ranch. The rooms...

I was looking for a cheap rate which i got. But does being a dude ranch mean that it is really dirty? i had to clean the shower stall before i could use it (glad i had some Windex with me!) The floor is tile with little throw rugs. These rugs haven't been cleaned in years! i pulled the bedspread...

We were referred by another hotel in Fairplay because the rooms in town were sold out. This place is a few miles outside of town and was not really what we were looking for. I think it'd be great fun for families with children, though! There were ATV and horse back trips offered through the property which looked like a...

I called on a Friday night to get a reservation for Saturday night because another hotel was full and mentioned that this one had just had a one room cancellation. I made the reservation and gave the man on the phone my credit card to reserve it for late arrival. We arrived around 9:30 at night, the only person in...
