Our most popular plan includes horseback riding (twice daily), meals (3x daily), lodging, game room privileges, unlimited nonalcoholic beverages, mountain bike use, and access to the video library.  This plan is available with daily rates for stays of 1 or 2 nights, but the best value is with our 3-night or longer packages.  You can also extend a 3-night package to a 4th or 5th night.

General Policies

Cancellation policy
A $50/room/night deposit will be due for reservation placement.
Deposits for reservations cancelled greater than 30 days prior to arrival are 85% refundable.
For cancellations 7-30 days prior to arrival, deposits are 50% refundable, and less than 7 days are non-refundable. Timely cancellations allow us to offer your room to other prospective guests.
With this policy, the most you could forfeit for a cancellation is limited to your deposit. However, if this is still too much risk, we encourage you to seek third-party traveler’s insurance. 

This policy applies for cancellations or postponements made for any reason.

One exception: You can always reschedule for an earlier date without penalty, but you can only reschedule (without penalty) for a later date IF you are doing so greater than 30 days prior to your reservation. Please plan accordingly.
