It's hard to say something about the ranch that has not already been said in the glowing reviews below. This is truly the best place on earth, and we have lived overseas twice and travelled a stack in between. The landscape is breathtaking. The food was so fricking good. The activities were hugely fun. But above all else, it's the staff that make this place above and beyond anything you've ever experienced. It's like they took the nicest people in America, and gave them jobs here.
We arrived shortly before Christmas as part of a large family group for our first "White Christmas". Upon arrival to our rooms, we found a Christmas tree with all the decorations waiting to be adorned, much to the excitement of our small children. From that moment on, the ranch felt like home. In fact, there was several times we'd leave shoes drying by the fireplace in the Great Room, forgetting it wasn't our own living room.
Each member of our group participated in the many activities on offer and each was thanked by the staff on conclusion. They were just so happy to be experiencing it with us. Nothing on earth was too hard. Everything was met with smile and there seemed genuine excitement when we extended our stay as we couldn't bear to leave.
Highlights of our trip included the best massages on earth, Christmas dinner that will now be the bar for all future meals, snowmobiling in the dumping snow and fireworks by the camp fire on New Year's Eve.
I can not recommend this place any higher. Really, I tried and I can't. Go there. You will DIE with happiness.
