We loved the place! Very impressed with all the cool animals that Valkyrie Ranch has. Super nice hosts, lots of trails to walk and a clean cabin. My only advice would be: if you are bringing food with you, make sure to bring a cooler full of ice (which we did) since there is no refrigerator at the love shack. Overall: highly recommend!

This ranch is several hundred acres! We had the most amazing time hiking through the woods and made great use of our All Trails App. Jim and Haley were the kindest hosts! We thought there would be a few horses, and we were very wrong in the best way. Jim rescues/rehabilitates/and breeds a variety of exotic wildlife including several species of antelopes, big horn ram, fallow deer, African Gnu(Wildebeest), as well as Chinese Pere-David Deer that are extinct in the wild. We also made very good friends with the donkeys that freely roam the property. The cabin is air conditioned, and both the cabin and bath house are absolutely immaculate. The land itself is *gorgeous*! My son and I had such a great time, we will definitely be back!

This was a fantastic stay. The hosts really set the bar high when it comes to fulfilling the role of host. Can’t wait to come back.

The Love Shack was excellent. It's 2 cabins, one is a bedroom, the other the bathroom, with a great deck between. Both cabins are clean and comfortable. The Valkyrie Ranch folks were awesome hosts and even invited us to a Viking funeral they had for one of the animals who unfortunately passed away. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful place to spend a weekend, we went hiking around the ranch. The owners are very nice and kind people who care about animals a lot. Their cider was amazing, we wanted to buy a bottle but somehow forgot about it while leaving.

This place was 11/10. Beautiful animals, lots of space. Ownee is very personable, and will definitely come again. Only gripe is just wish my dogs had somewhere to run, they are ranch dogs 🐕
