Bought a groupon even after reading mixed reviews. Called to book and they blamed the rains for not re-opening the trails. That was in March 2017 and they told me to try scheduling after May 6th. Groupon contacted just before that date and said the groupon had been cancelled. At least I got my money back so I can find...

We did a road tasting wine vacation out of Lawrence Welk in Escondido last year with another couple. There are a lot of wine tasting rooms. The facilities are very different from each other. If doing this road trip, be prepared we did not find a good location for dinner or lunch anywhere along the route.

Such a gorgeous resort and great get away. I will be back soon. The winery is very nice and the trails are fun. Plenty of things to do and a relaxing place. Highly recommended and I had such a great experience.

My sister and I stayed in the Sparrow Cottage in mid-February. The grounds are lovely and lush and we thought it looked like a tropical island. It's a bird-watchers' paradise. The main lodge is an amazing, funky space. The lodge staff and the ferrier were delightful people and so welcoming. Bring some carrots for the horses at the on-site equestrian...

We rented the Hummingbird (4-5 occupants). Was us couples and 2 kids. Brought-in our own microwave ready food but food can be ordered and delivered and have a garden (outdoor) meal like a picnic beside your cottage under big trees. It was a very different experience with our 6 and 12 year olds to be here. Family bonding time becomes...

Went on groupon deal, just to check out the place. The grounds in general are very nice, but maintenance was lacking. Very large hole right outside our cabin was under construction and sightly, and looked like it had been that for a while. Pool was not cleaned (all winter?), jacuzzi not kept hot (disappointed in the morning), outdoor shower not...

We chose to visit this place based on the good reviews on this site, however it was very disappointing. There's simply not much to do this time of the year, especially if you're not interested in horseback riding. The night guard told us the pool was closed due to a gas leak so no one was allowed in the pool...

The Ranch is in a very beautiful setting and once, when run by a proper management it probably was wonderful to stay there. Pros: Wonderful setting, beautiful area, close to Safari Park, nice gourds, horse stable is very nice and clean (the staff not so nice) Cons: We bought a Groupon for this place and every night we spent came...

This is a great place to go if you want to be in nature, in a beautiful setting. There are really no amenities - simple rooms with microwaves and a common gathering space with a grill. the horses are amazing, and the trail ride was perfect for my friend and our daughters.

Once again, the perfect escape, must minutes from home. This time I opted for the Bluebird cottage. This sweet little cottage is more remote than the first time I was here, and the only sound I heard was the occasional horse neighing and the patter or the persistent rain on the roof. The young staff is friendly, helpful and eager...
