From the Horse's Mouth

I can't say enough about your staff. Jackson greeted us as soon as we pulled in. All of the servers were helpful, engaging, and they had an uncanny way of anticipating our every need. Trent must have a superpower because he never seemed to tire of us and our endless requests. He has a terrific sense of humor, and his name recall was outstanding. Peyton killed it with the karaoke (and he probably never wants to hear “Sweet Caroline” for the rest of his life.) He fit right in and had only been on the ranch for 3 days. I enjoyed the shooting time with him and Jackson. And the biggest shoutout to Trevor – hiker extraordinaire. If we'd asked him to take us 15 more miles, he would have done it with a smile. He appeared like magic the morning we left and was able to charge our completely dead car battery so that we could still make our flight. We would not have made it without him. The property is gorgeous, and the staff is over the top. The food, wine and drinks were outstanding. I hope to return next time with my family, though I'd repeat my girls' weekend in a minute.
