We have gone twice already and each time my family has had a great time. We celebrated my grandbaby's second birthday there and Easter. Each time there was plenty to do for my entire family. My grandbaby watches the video every night! They need to have a repeat guest discount program.

RHR is a great place for families to visit. There is something for everyone. The staff is amazing, friendly and helpful. Especially the at the stable. There was someone there with my daughter for her first ride every step of the way. Rob at the stable was an amazing help.

We liked the rocking horse ranch except for the fact that going away for one night during the week when our children were off from school cost us $1000 dollars... which to me was entirely too much money for what was offered... the food was typical all inclusive food... buffet style... we definitely weren't blown away by it... our daughter...

A very solid younger-kid oriented experience for a long-weekend or vacation week. Negs: Rooms are nothing special -- clean, serviceable, spacious -- not luxurious. Food is average for adults with more sophisticated palates -- but there's plenty of mac and cheese, chicken fingers, cheeseburger, spaghetti and pasta for picky young eaters. Pros: pretty much everything else. In our 2-day stay...

My three kids (ages 10, 8 and 3) and I went for three days/two nights and had such a blast. Given the difference in ages, I've always had issues with at least one of my kids not having something to do. This was certainly not the case ! The extra activities that the staff puts together (kickball, trivia, karaoke, bubble...

Pros: Lots of activities, clean establishment, friendly staff. Unlimited horseback riding. Nice family bonding time. Cons: Some of the food was good some of it we didn't care for but there's lots to choose from and they will let you get an alternate meal. The price was a little steep for one night but I think the horse back riding...

My daughter and I scheduled a last minute trip to Rocking Horse Ranch during her April school break. I can honestly say that we loved every minute of it. The staff were always smiling and very helpful. We did almost everything we could do outside given the time of year and temperatures- bungee jump, mountain tubing, paddle boats. We played...

Kids (5 & 7) had the time of their lives; both cried when we left. Lots of family friendly activities to choose from. Not overcrowded at all and hotel was at capacity when we visited. Horse trail rides were frequent & manageable for different ability levels. Indoor pool area was a lot of fun, but reasonable size so it was...

“Rooms on the second floor of the main lodge away from the elevator/stairs are likely best positioned for relative daytime quiet.”
