Lookout Ridge Retreat
Jon’s quick response to our questions and Pat’s friendly greeting upon our arrival was very helpful. Pat, the land owner, guided up to the top of Lookout Ridge and walked us thru all amenities. He also helped get our fire going along with firewood. The camp is wonderful, we enjoyed our fire with the stars overhead. We ordered dinner from J. Wilson’s and it was served to us by Jake. Very nice, friendly and first class!! We strongly recommend Lookout Ridge!!

Great experience!
We loved glamping on this property. The cabin was very cozy. Nicely decorated, comfortable bedding, and the generators were nice to have. Beautiful guided horse trail ride! The hosts were wonderful. We relaxed while they set up our fire. Our tent had all of the essentials we wouldn’t have needed to pack hardly at all! Super fast response time to any requests, even a late night request for more firewood. Everything we expected and more! Donuts on the way out. Great people, great experience.

Perfect Place to Relax
We had a fantastic experience at Saddle Ridge Retreats! The hospitality was outstanding, and this was the perfect place to enjoy the fall weather and chill out for a couple days. We added a trail ride to our stay and really enjoyed touring the property on horseback. We will definitely be back!

Great getaway from crazy schedule
The surroundings were peaceful and calming. No set up and no tear down. Perfect for a quick getaway if you just need to relax. The tent was warm and inviting and the people who worked there were available at the drop of a hat. Definitely recommended.

We enjoyed the horse trail ride and the animals were fun to watch. Definitely a vibe. Only regret is not bringing the kiddos but we will be back.

Glamping
We had the best experience! Pat greeted us// showed us around and was just exceptional! Communication with Jon was fantastic and timely. They even offered food services from a local restaurant that was fantastic!! We booked this as a “staycation “ as we live in KC and this is just what the soul needed !!

dreamy tent on a lovely ranch
Such a beautiful place! The tent was lovely, enormous blow up bed was super comfy, and the bathroom set up is creative and effective. We arrived later in the evening and they met us at the gate, already had a fire going for us, and showed us around the site very hospitably. We woke up surrounded by a herd of horses. Magical! Highly recommend.

I’v never been camping like here. It was one of the best experience that I ever had. You will be able to feel that you are in middle of nature. Cows and horses are walking around you, but don’t worry about that, they will not bite you at all.

Great First-Time Camping Experience
Jon's little extra touches made an already amazing experience that much better! It was a perfect first-time camping experience for my 3 year old. When the horses walked up to say hello as we were roasting marshmallows it was truly magical. The outhouse was clean and nice with hot and cold potable water, towels and soap. Lots of portable generators for charging electronics. The cooler air conditioner made camping in July bearable. There is 'canteen" in the room with all the things you may have forgotten plus a few complementary snacks. Beautiful, cozy tents and bedding.

Glamping and a barn party!
We went glamping for a night for my husbands birthday and we loved it! It was about 100 degrees out so we paid extra for air conditioning and it was worth it! We had treats and even a birthday card waiting for us when we got there! Jon built us a fire for later if we wanted to roast s’mores! There was also corn hole and a fun frisbee game set up for us! That night the ranch was having a little cookout so we went to that as well and made so many friends and got to watch the horses have fun and do barrel races!! Everyone was so accommodating and I can’t recommend this enough!

Our Family Camping Experience
We loved our camping experience! Jon our host was very helpful setting everything up before we got there, through our stay and even the next morning. I can’t imagine a better getaway if you are looking for a fun and peaceful time away from the day to day stuff you are oh so used to. I highly recommend Jon and his way of making your experience special. He even rescued us when we needed him the most. Thank you Jon, good memories;)

I booked this ‘Glampsite’ as a surprise for my husband and I. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Jon and shown everything we needed for our stay. Our trail ride was such an added bonus to our stay. Jon’s place had everything we needed and more to relax to the fullest and enjoy the gorgeous outdoors. It was everything I hoped for and we can’t wait to return!

Great time !
I loved everything about the Ranch. Everything was clean in our tent. We had a great time using the fire pit and we were even able to do a DoorDash and have food brought to us just have to meet them up at the entrance but it was very convenient to be able to do that. John was a great host very very friendly and attentive and we will be back.
