I've been a guest at the ranch back to the mid 70s and seen several owners, sold the ranch as a listing broker and never felt so connected to a place in my life. You feel as if you just came home when you walk in into the front door of the Lodge. Remodeled Lodge rooms are great and love staying in the Lodge or cabins. All very warm and cozy. I wrote a short story about staying on the ranch when the elders of all the western Native Americans stayed for a meeting prior to going to Washington DC to voice issues. I was lucky to have been invited to help out.
What a special place when the Sims and Jammerons ran it to now with the Jammerons returning to manage again. Quiet and peaceful, wonderful hiking trails, great fishing and hunting in every direction. A destination resort for singles to entire families, you can't go wrong. I've gone as a couple, single, with my kids while they grew up and were great no matter what I was there for.
