Stayed in the Teepees with my granddaughter for her 10 year trip. We had a fabulous time and everyone made us feel so welcome.She even said it was more fun than Disney. Special shoutout to Eden, our concierge, setting up our activity on the phone and in person she met all our requests and made us feel like royalty. Also to security Austin, he patiently answered our questions, escorted us to our special area and got info on my granddaughter to have a special announcement for her birthday.
It was worth every single penny we spent! Definitely recommend and we can’t wait to return.... grand daughter already has a list of activities.

I live in Daytona beach and made a day trip over and Austin took me around on a tour of the ranch and gave me some cool history about the Florida cowboy and information on activities. I shot trap and skeet for my first time and really loved the change of scenery, I am used to the beach life. I ate dinner at the smokehouse grill and it was great. Dawn the manager was very friendly. Can’t wait to come back and stay for a weekend and see the Saturday night rodeo.
