We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We do have units with more amenities and fewer spiders, but we keep a few of the original rustic cabins for an affordable option we call "one step up from camping" like the Life cabin you rented.

Suzanne and I took over the Ranch from my brother 20 years ago as a lifestyle change. We love what we do, especially the wonderful people we meet from all over the world. When we receive feedback like this, it gladdens our hearts.

There is coverage in the main building most of the time. As to cell power, I use AT&T and it was spotty. The good news is that it really gave me a break and a chance to bond with the land. Hope this is helpful.

"If loud cricket chirps make it hard for you to sleep - bring earplugs."
"I stayed in a cabin close to the Lodge, where the Wi-fi is located, which meant we had Wi-fi in our cabin (called "Love")."
"If you like to comfort of having more privacy, ask for a hut."
"Larger cabins are spacious and will fit a lot of people. The smaller cabins are quaint with their own charm."
"The place is so quiet that noises (such as the swimming pool pump) can be heard in some rooms so best to choose the right side of the lodge."
