Report: Our experience at the ranch was wonderful. Paula and Todd are wonderful 'rangers' but make better hosts. The meals were superb, reasonable and varied. Paula and Todd even packed a lunch for our Friday biking trip! The setting and atmosphere are perfect if you're looking for weekend retreat from the daily hustle.
