Our family of 7 absolutely loved it! The wranglers were friendly and helpful and were great with our kids. The land is beautiful and Kathlyn took great care of us. My only negative would be to make sure that you are careful who sleeps on the top bunk. There aren't any rails so my little rolled off and busted his...

We decided to go here for a trail ride. Kathlyn at the office was very accommodating and friendly. Our wranglers Kevin (a native comanche) and Butch were two of the nicest people we ever met. The ride was very enjoyable and the price was reasonable. I tried to upload pictures with my phone but had a problem because I did...

Ever since we have found this place, we love to spend our Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays here. Love the peacefulness out here. Love disconnecting from media, cell phones, the craziness. Love to enjoy the beauty of God's creation. Everyone we meet becomes family . . especially when we are usually sharing breakfast, lunch, and dinner together. I love the meal...

We made a reservation online and was excited to experience the cowboy life. The bedroom looked to be clean and appeared as the photo showed it. The bathroom was tiny and I honestly didn't want to step foot in the shower. The shower floor was black! We proceeded to look at the game room and it was disgusting. Someone had...

I wish I could have addressed your concerns while you were still here as I would have used all my resources to make it a perfect stay. Rowdy kids can turn our game room upside down in a very short time and schools have hired monitors to prevent and preserve their classrooms and it sounds like a good idea for...

I found this amazing place because my friends were staying in the RV park so we stayed in one of the cabins to be close to them. We had the best time with Kathlyn and the staff at the ranch. The trail rides were a blast and the meals were so good it was great to not have to leave...

I visited on the recommendations of my sister who told me how awesome the staff at the ranch is. She was correct- they are so warm and friendly that you begin to feel like this is your family. The accommodations are clean,comfortable and truly rustic. The dining hall is the "heart" of the ranch. You get that family feeling, meet...

I went there with my parents few days ago. Everyone is so nice and friendly. We did the horse ride over 1 hour and ate the cowboy breakfast. My family really like this place. The environment is excellent too. Highly recommend this hotel.
