    This is a great place especially if you like horses and a laid back, restful atmosphere. The grounds are quite nice but the buildings could use a little TLC; especially a good pressure washing. The guest rooms are quite adequate and for the most part,...More

    We disagree with, and object to, the scurrilous allegations made by this reviewer regarding the care of our horses. While there are farms in the horse industry that are neglectful, this review unjustly and inaccurately portrays our ranch as such. We are proud to provide...More

    They leave an envelope in the room for tipping. It has a break down of the suggested amounts also. I usually tip, but you don't have to.

    I believe they can only ride with a parent in the ring area. Children under 12 cannot ride alone.
