  • Always a great time! Don’t go expecting a fancy toilet, and you will get sucked into to their chill vibe and beautiful location. Their bar and cafe are above par and their overall feel is relaxed...

  • I can't think of a better target area to close the curtain and relax. I can speak for myself and all my family and friends that there is no better place to reset your clock and unwind. I'm surrounded....  more

  • Not enough positivity can be said about this Ranch! An experience you need to have yourself! You can do a little bit of everything, now that you are no longer stuck to your cell phone. Thank God for the bad reception in this area, (I really hope that's on purpose.) This is definitely one of those places you go to get away from technology and enjoy your surroundings and the people in those surroundings. You can fish, hike, horseback ride and the camping selections are endless! If you prefer large groups, small groups, tents cabins or grass under the stars, they provide it. If you have an RV or camper, they have the space plus some. Have a dog or five? Bring them, they will have fun too! You can find a cafe for those who don't feel like cooking. And just across the way is a tavern if you'd like a cocktail or a friendly game of pool.
  • An excellent little sanctuary hidden away from the rest of the world. The cabins are humble and cozy. Just a mattress, wood burning stove, and a table. There is power but you will need a cooler for your cold foods if you choose to not eat at the Defa's Cafe or travel into Hanna to eat at the Cafe there. The views are something that will be imprinted on your mind especially in the fall when the leaves start changing. A great place for a romantic getaway or a weekend away with the family.
  • Love it here! Beautiful area. Very quiet and relaxing. The people are extremely friendly and helpful. The gift shop has a little bit of everything just in case you forget to pack everything from home. When we've gone they have had great music at the bar. Haven't had the occasion to eat at the Cafe but hearing what others say, the food is great. Can't wait to go back.
  • The whole area is beautiful, cabins are fun and simple. Had a great relaxing time.
  • The views are beautiful. The horses are a nice option. The cabins are alright. There are hook-ups for campers. The general store is limited. There is a cafe that is open from 7Am to 7Pm. I don't think that the bar makes it a friendly place for children.
