Testimonial 2

February 21st, 2014


We decided on the Rankin Ranch for part of out dream holiday because of two things: (1) its location – being near to the other places we were visiting and (2) Its excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The ranch is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas in a lovely basin surrounded by wooded hills. Only 2 1/2 hours from L.A., but it could be in another world, and significantly because of its elevation its 10° or more cooler than the Bakersfield valley.
The horses are wonderful, well looked after and most of them are real working quarter horses though ideal for complete novices like us.
The family and staff make you really welcome, and after a hectic 10 days sightseeing this was an oasis of peace and calm. Park the car and forget it, lovely walks, no TV, fresh air, early morning rides and plenty to keep the kids occupied. Something to do every night whether it was Bingo, Hay Ride and barbeque, Pool Competition, magic show, and in the heat of the day, chilling by the pool, or practicing archery in the shady grove near the playing field… if you want to spend peaceful days in a little piece of heaven on earth, getting back to nature while having all your needs taken care of and the kids occupied and enthralled then you should book now.
All in all it was just about perfect.
