We visited TCR for the first time in July 2014 with our two twenty-something kids. We had a cabin and the kids had a cabin. Both were well appointed with large bathrooms with separate sinks and toilets (his and hers) and a very large shower. We were in Pintler which backs up to a ravine and a creek. We saw deer almost every day and lots of squirrels and ground squirrels playing around the bird feeder. TCR provides golf carts for cabin guests and these made it easy to run back and forth to the cabin and the lodge - especially if you forgot something. There are so many activities to enjoy. We went fishing, hiking, trap shooting, sapphire panning, trail riding, wildlife viewing and even tried the team penning. Staff who ran outings were very polite and helpful. Brenna was particularly patient and positive with the team penning as we really had no idea what we were doing. We had a great experience. TCR allows you to fish over on their sister ranch which was a great opportunity for some quiet time and river exploring. They provide all of the equipment you need for fishing. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Wes was particularly helpful in making suggestions about other activities that we would probably like. TCR also has a nice pool where you can hang out in the afternoons after a hot day of exploring and we also played a fun game of Boccee Ball. We really enjoyed the food. Most of it was excellent with only a few exceptions. We were there for a week and the menu typically consisted of three entrée options - meat, chicken, and fish. The starter and salad options were probably my favorites - although one night the chef did a papparadelle pasta that was outstanding. Dessert was always hard to pass up too. We particularly enjoyed the "meet the chef" night where you got to go back into the kitchen and literally meet the chefs including the dessert chef. It was outstanding. We ordered wine every night with each of us taking a turn making the selection. Jeremy, the sommelier, was very helpful and knowledgeable without being at all pretentious (as some sommeliers can be). He made great recommendations. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely go back. Even in our week stay there were still activities that we would like to have done or additional trails to hike. On our last day we hiked up in the trails behind the ranch and finally saw the elk I had been wanting to see all week.
