The ranch accommodations are a little more rustic than I am used to, but clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, an incredibly dark sky to watch a meteor shower and the horse back riding. Breakfast was terrific every morning and we enjoyed talking with the Wilson's. You can bring your own food for lunches and dinner but amenities for cooking are limited. Plenty of dinner fare available in town. Warning- bathrooms are shared and not necessarily close to your room. Our family had two of the rooms upstairs which was fine except when I needed to use the facilities in the middle of the night which are downstairs. Our family had a great time at the ranch as well as exploring the area - we would definitely go again.
