Vision Quest is like no experience we have ever had. Charlie and his team are amazing. It is incredible how much they love the animals and all the new enclosures they are building for the animals. It is captivating from the elephants, tigers to Bob the binturong!! I cannot imagine how wonderful it will be for all of the animals...

Having breakfast with an elephant is awesome! I stayed in 'Josef's jungle' and sitting on the deck in the evening looking out over the valley was extremely relaxing. I wouldn't compare it to an African safari because it is quite different but if you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable place to stay and have a special experience then this...

We were excited to visit this place. We enjoy visiting different places and having out of the ordinary experiences. We weren't quite sure what to expect but ended up being very pleasantly surprised, it exceeded all expectations. We did a zoo and animal feeding tour-the staff was very friendly and knowledgable. The accommodations were roomy, clean, quiet and comfortable. They...

Traveling with our three daughters 21, 18, and 13 can be a challenge! This place had everyone captivated. Our daughter's did the special elephant package and couldn't thank us enough for that experience. The whole family did the tour and the Butch Bedtime with the elephants. I highly recommend Vision Quest Ranch!!

Fantastic experience. Stayed in Zebra Zone (Bungalow #5) with my girlfriend for a night on our weekend escape. Tour was very informative. I appreciate the personal feel to everything. Paid extra for "crunch time" and "butch's bedtime." Got a huge kick out of feeding the elephants! Big cats were less interesting to feed but got a lot of cool extra...

My husband and I have stayed at the B&B a few times this past year and have never been disappointed. I have been on their website many times and do not feel that there is anything misleading. It could use a little polishing and updating but even I know the animals come first. We have taken our kids and grandkids...

The best. All the amenities and more. Great comfort. A very friendly, helpful and knowlegeable staff. It is a quiet relaxing place. The roar of the lion gave it the real feal of a safari and it was not disturbing in the least. You wait to hear it. Feeding the cats was a personal best and I am looking forward...

My daughter wanted to be around animals for her 10th Birthday - so we drove down and stayed at the B&B for one night. Did the 1pm 1 hour tour which was very informative and just the right amount of time. Then we checked into the Giraffe bungalow - since there were 3 of us - they had pre-made the...

Wonderful stay. People were very accommodating. Cabins were so comfortable and there was plenty to do. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed the pachyderm package. Butch the elephant was so gentle and enjoyed his bath given by us! We had a wonderful tour, visiting all of the animals. Kristi was a fabulous tour guide. It was a wonderful visit and...

I was not sure what to expect going here but it was fantastic. The zoo was the closest I've ever been to animals and the staff were amazingly knowledgeable. The bed and breakfast was beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. The best was the breakfast delivery. One of the best experience I've had in the area
