  • Fun stay on the Ranch


    Owners were nice, property is unique and fun. Cute animals. Close to the lake and other sights. Check in easy. Clean.Parking is not the best when you stay in the big ranch but not bad. Probably great to stay in a single cabin with your own parking and fire pit. Great stay overall. AC in each window would be great. I would recommend this place!

  • Ranch style getaway near raystown lake


    Nice 2 day stay at ranch with ponies, horses, chickens and roosters. Cabins named for famous western actors with decor. Outdoor fire rings available. Inside heated with noisy portable heaters. Could be cleaner no trash bags or cleaning products. TV had very poor reception always lost signal. Roads at ranch are rutted out from rain. Otherwise fun place to stay close to Raystown lake.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Andy, we're happy to hear you had a nice stay, but are sorry you experienced some issues. We do try to supply a starter supply of essentials for all guests and will pass your feedback on to the owner. Sometimes the TV reception is affected by the weather which is, unfortunately, beyond the owner's control. We will check-in about the situation with the roads. Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. We hope to host you again on future vacations!

  • Great Location


    Great location and the owners of the property are wonderful people. The reason for 4/5 and not a perfect review is as follows:

    This is not to say we were unhappy and not to say that we would not stay at this property again. This is to provide valuable feedback to better the stay of future guests.

    1. Several light bulbs were missing; we had to go purchase our own light bulbs which as a courtesy we left behind for future guests.

    2. We understand dogs are allowed in the rooms; but the pet owners should be required to clean prior the arrival of new guests. Our cabin was filled with dog hair from prior guests. We would recommend that maybe some cabins not allow pets at all or a strict cleaning policy be mandated.

    3. Our cabin was shared with (4) other families. The family below us unfortunately had screaming children all night long. Maybe some cabins not allow children.

    In short we enjoyed the location of this property and the farm atmosphere. It is remote and private; it comes with a nice firepit outside with plenty of seating. We will look to stay in one of the more private cabins next time. I think with a few adjustments to managements policy this will become a very desirable location for travelers.

  • Short getaway on the Urban Saddle Ranch


    We stayed in the Bill Pickett cabin, please be sure to read the description carefully as it is on the second floor. We have two preschool aged children and didn't read the description carefully enough and missed that. Ms. Monique helped us out by giving us a baby gate to use during our stay. Overall the cabin was nice. It does not have ac as listed in the description, but there are plenty of box fans provided.
