The food was excellent – Brian, the chef was an absolute delight, not only can he cook but he showed us how to pan for gold! Our cabin was rustic, comfortable and soothing with the babbling brook beside us. I loved the ‘Cowboy coffee’! Horseback riding was everything we hoped for – fun, challenging and food for the soul with so many beautiful trees along the trails. Overall, an incredible experience and holiday for us. Thank you!” Rating: 9/10

“Dear Ruth,

Our family had a great time at Coffee Creek Ranch. Thanks for all the hospitality from your great staff and all the folks that helped as wranglers. This is definitely a place where we would come back to again. I wanted to share a few of the “big fish stories” from the trip. The trout was from you little pond and the bass Herb caught was at Trinity Lake. These really made the trip for the boys. Thanks again!”

~ Kathleen and Herb Steffe (Part of the Olson-Steffe-Herold group (May 15th- 22nd 2011)


“Dear Ruth,

Our family enjoyed our visit to your ranch on many levels: an opportunity for all 19 of us to get together for an extended period of time, yet with the privacy of individual cabins, the ranch atmosphere as a new experience available to all interests and age levels. The location, besides the scenic wonders, was conveniently half-way between our children’s families, and we were especially impressed with the quality of the food and the friendly cooperation of your staff to accommodate us and our little ones. I think your timing was excellent, enjoying beautiful weather, yet having near-exclusive use of your facilities. I believe you give value for money.”

~ Robert L. Sharp


“Dear Ruth and Mark,

After less than a week back at work, we realize how much fun we had at Coffee Creek Ranch. The hospitality was far beyond our expectations, and Jenny especially didn’t want to leave. We’re keeping in touch with some of the wonderful families we met there, and possibly see them at your place next year. You’ve gotten Jenny fully hooked on horses now – tell Trinity “hi” from her. And please let Anita know that Jenny’s foot is doing fine; tender, a little skin loss on top, but she is still running and playing on it with no worries. Thanks again.”

~ Julie, Rich and Jenny Stuart


“Dear Coffee Creek Crew,

We’ve only been home for a week, but it still seems like a month! Thanks to all of you, our family vacation this year will be remembered fondly by all of us! Although, you did make it very hard to come back to reality! We hope to remainder of the summer is good to all of you and the ranch. Hope to see you all next year!”

~ The Nare Family (Rick, Donielle, Tom, Tanner and True)


“Dear Ruth and Mark,

We arrived home safely Friday night after a fabulous 6 days and nights at Coffee Creek Ranch. My family had a great time & enjoyed everything you had to offer. Thank you so much for changing Cabin L to Rafter A for Mary and I. It worked out very well. Our vacation exceeded above all expectations that I could have imagined thanks to your terrific planning. We did enjoy the warm days and nights at Coffee Creek Ranch. The food was so great that I really felt like I’d had a real vacation, no shopping or cooking, etc. Again many thanks to you all.”
