We loved our stay at the Cow Cabin! The directions provided were very accurate and made getting there easy. The cabin is adorable! There is a great covered deck that is perfect for eating. The outdoor shower was very nice and the composting toilet was nice and clean too. We LOVED the soaking tub! It was so great after hiking around to sit and soak in that beautiful scenery. There is a hiking trail not too far from the cabin.There is also a hammock for further relaxing. We only used the propane grill, but there was also a two burner outside and a small butane burner inside. We saw lots of cows, some sheep, turkeys and a few rabbits. We just loved staying here.
Gary and his team are the best!!! My partner and I recently got married at River Ridge Ranch. We rented out the entire ranch, along with the Cow Cabin for three days of good times. The Cow Cabin is amazing, the location and the facility are second to none. Gary truly cares about his guests and wants the experience to be positive on all ends. We are extremely grateful for him allowing us to celebrate our wedding on his beautiful property. Trust us, you will not be disappointed staying at River Ridge Ranch's Cow Cabin. We can't wait to come back!
We had a great time at the cow cabin! It was really special to wake up in the middle of nowhere between the cows, have amazing evenings on the porch with great atmosphere and gaze at the stars at night. The cabin was very complete and well organized! Gary was really friendly and drove us to our car with our luggage on the day of departure. All in all we had a blast staying here!!!
This was our second visit to the cow cabin and as before, it was exceptional. Facilities are spotlessly clean and ample, cabin is cosy and has everything you might need. We will be back. We have fallen in love with this place and Gary’s hospitality makes it perfection. Highly recommend.
