We arrived here at the ranch on Saturday afternoon from The Colony TX to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. For the most part in the past we have usually taken cruise ship and beach vacations. We really wanted to make our first year wedding anniversary a priority and just take a few days to ourselves to get away from our usual chaotic, demanding lives without spending a lot of money and going somewhere different with a new experience. Upon arrival, the ranch immediately gave off a very welcoming, warm vibe of simplicity and tranquility. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The Ranch Suite was absolutely perfect. Calm, quiet, cold AC, and much to our surprise and a blessing in disguise, no cell phone service or internet access. We were unable to fish due to the pond being dried up but we did enjoy the view anyway. We spent our first evening in grilling and watching movies. On Sunday, the morning of our anniversary we spent the morning at Quapaw Spa which I highly recommend. Excellent, friendly, staff and phenomenal services offered at a good rate. I recommend the steam cave. We visited the Wax Museum and the local shops on Central Ave. We would recommend traveling to the area on Saturday and staying through Monday as to avoid the usual tourist traffic on a typical Saturday at any resort town. We spent our last evening here grilling steaks, enjoying cold beer and wine and just enjoying each other’s company in the peace and quiet. Overall, it was a very pleasurable and enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend Panther Valley Ranch in the future. Thanks for the experience.
