"It’s the 2nd time our family reunion of 25-30 people has rented the Grand Lodge & Blanche House at Elk Ridge Ranch. It’s wonderful knowing that there are so many beds that we never have to worry about how many family members will show up. As of our July 2015 visit, it can sleep 35 people in 12 bedrooms (even more than last year). And we totally love the giant commercial kitchen with its loads of fridge/freezer space, extra big ovens, huge stove-top griddle for pancakes/eggs, 3 tub sinks and all sorts of utensils, pans, pots etc, even in very large sizes that you need when cooking for a large group. The owners, Dave & Wendy, were exceptionally friendly and worked hard to be sure we enjoyed our stay – showed us how to use the theater popcorn popper, computer projection equipment, ovens and even helped us with entertainment. We’ve rented several places in the past and never seen anything like them or their ranch. The buildings are very sturdy so we don’t worry about the kids damaging anything. The surrounding land is so big, we enjoyed playing golf on the grounds, fishing in the pond, having bonfires, and petting goats. There was also a lot we did in the area like Holiday World, a public pool, winery and French Lick Casino & Resort."
