We had a blast!!! Pitched a tent on the top deck, hiked to the lake, and cooked outdoors every night! Hot tub was awesome as well. Can't wait to come back!

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Ranch Retreat. This was the perfect destination to celebrate our anniversary. Patty and Craig are amazing hosts, they make you feel like the most welcomed guests. They truly have thought of everything! We enjoyed our days just hanging out at the house. The drive to various excursions wasn't bad at all. We highly recommend Ranch Retreat & are planning our next trip back soon! Thank you, Patty and Craig, for a wonderful home for our vacation!

Great place to celebrate!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four couples stayed at Ranch Retreat to celebrate our friends upcoming wedding. The location was great! There is a really nice grocery store just a few minutes away from the house. We saw so many deer each day. We hung out on the deck and grilled burgers one night, and finished our days in the amazing hot tub. It was a great place to celebrate our friends.

Exactly as described. Loved our stay.

The house was so great, we never left. We enjoyed grilling on the deck and soaking in the hot tub. Comfortably slept our 8 adults and we were thrilled to be able to bring the dog. We already discussed returning.

Peaceful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relxing and peaceful weekend at this home. I highly recommend it! There was plenty of space for everyone in our group of 8. We relaxed in the hot tub, grilled on the deck, and had such a great time laughing while chatting at night looking up at the stars. There was a great little grocery store nearby. This house was just want we all needed!
