Terri and Marv are wonderful, hardworking, down to earth country folk who know how to upscale any fine establishment. Terri's attention to detail, amazing cooking, and courtier service make you feel like king and queen during your romantic stay. Not to mention her personal philosophy "chocolate should be served at every meal". Whether hanging out in the barn with the horses, or out in the saddle, your horse time will feel, and is, very authentic. Riding with Marv is much more than your "nose to tail" big group tourist horse walk. Expect a real personal experience that will help you advance at any level, and a ride that is as genuine as any cowboys day on horseback. Terri and Marv have built a property that, coupled with their service, cleanliness, and every little amenity you can think of, is easily 5 star. If you are looking for value in your dollar, keeping your money local, and still getting a magical experience...give them a try, you won't be disappointed!

We just spent the last 3 days at the beautiful Rocking R Guest Ranch. Terri & Marvin were amazing hosts. We stayed in the "Bunk House"; an amazing cabin, exceptional views, absolutely everything we needed, high end linens, they really have thought of everything. Breakfast was delicious. 5* for sure. We were lucky enough to do a trail ride; even though we were inexperienced riders Marv/Heather paired us with suitable horses and provided us with "Horse 101" and we all enjoyed our ride and felt safe. You really must go out and spend time at this amazing guest ranch...we will definitely be back again without hesitation.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay last weekend at Rocking R. A fabulous cabin with a rustic feel, but all the amenities, was the perfect getaway to decompress. The attention to detail was much appreciated - cream & milk already in the fridge for coffee/tea, complimentary snacks, precut kindling and firewood, lots of towels, robes and slippers for the hot tub - the list goes on. And on very short notice, Terri and her husband served an incredible 3 course dinner with one of our favourite wines! The meals, breakfast is included with your stay, were absolutely delicious. We were very impressed with all the Covid safety protocols being followed as well. Terri was a friendly, helpful and professional host - couldn’t have asked for a better place to relax. We will be back! Kerry and Jim Peters
