Where do I begin? This was such an amazing vacation... Nicely appointed cabins dressed in western decor- loved it. Horse back riding everyday, professional fly fishing excursions in pristine waters, overnight horseback ride to high camp-where we slept under the stars with the horses, massage therapy (ahhh), trap shooting, fantastic meals, afternoon swims, gorgeous hikes, rodeo, campfires with live music, square-dancing, and so many special touches throughout the week (homemade cookies would just show up at my cabin, pbj sandwiches made for my picky eater at any hour, special beverage runs into town). Owners, Scott & Megan, are the most becoming hosts and their staff is a mirror image of their high standards. We became friends with the entire crew and all the other guest families. My 3 kids were so sad to go home because they were going to miss "their" horses, their friends, their vacation home. Did I mention that my kids did not watch a single minute of TV, play an iPod, or video game? Completely unplugged from the world of screens. Very wholesome. Only wish we could have stayed longer.
We will definitely be back! It was truly the BEST vacation our family has ever had!!
