Just finished a family reunion at Echo Basin. The Ranch was pretty perfect, if not a little funky, for such an occasion. But we like funky. Lovely tall pines, lots of shade, a little running stream close to our cabin, beautiful nighttime skies, fire pits for bonfires, covered picnic tables and more. We rented one of the cooking cains and 3 smaller cabins. I rated the Ranch average for several reasons. First, the cooking cabin was not equipped sufficiently in the kitchen. Decent pots, namely large pots, for pasta, stew, corn, etc., were not there, silverware was meager as were drinking glasses. All of this is easily remedied if forewarned. Thus this review. Bring your own. Cabin was advertised to sleep 8-10, so it seems for what we paid it should have been provisioned for that many. We were encouraged not to request clean towels every day but when we didn't, then they didn't get our note requesting some necessities like toilet paper, etc. Another hassle, office was usually closed so it was difficult to get response. Ice was kept in the office. When we could locate someone, I do have to say they were helpful and pleasant, especially Brook. Caroline was also helpful. After about day 2 we adjusted to all the above but it was very frustrating early on. Overall it was a great venue for our reunion.
