Absolutely magical. Tim was an incredibly gracious host. Our two kids, aged 5 and 8, had a blast exploring the ranch. From cuddling the newborn kittens to feeding the 6-day old lamb, they had so many wonderful encounters with the animals on the ranch. Malia, the intern, was especially patient and warm with the kids. Our little ones loved doing morning chores with her, and our daughter enjoyed horseback riding with Malia’s guidance. The setting for the ranch is stunning. We loved hiking the nearby hills at sunset and spending a morning at Pinnacles National Park, just a few minutes away (so you can get an early start and beat the crowds to get parking at the Bear Gulch Trail.) The free archery set up was awesome; even our five year old was able to do it. We appreciated meeting all of the other families at the ranch, sharing a fire together, and roasting smores under the dazzling starry sky.
