"This was our second stay at Ridenour Ranch this year. Mike and Susie are great hosts. What an amazing place (watching all the animals, especially the alpacas), and just being away. Well-appointed accommodations, beautiful scenery, it's the best!! And lots of great hiking trails and wineries nearby."

"We had a great stay at the "Barndominium". It is a working fiber farm with sweet lovely animals. Very close to a great winery (Jones Von Drehle is across the road) and an adjacent apple orchard. The ranch offers farm-raised meats and eggs, which are delicious. The Barndominium itself is comfortable and well-appointed. You can look out the window at the baby animals. So fun!!!!! Mike and Susie are fantastic hosts, welcoming and a wealth of information for those interested in animals and farming. I highly recommend this spot."

"My husband found and reserved this beautiful cabin for me (Kristin). Like for many others, the last few months have been a significant life-altering experience. I was on the track to burn-out and this property was my off-ramp. It looks exactly as the photos depict and immaculately clean. Also, there are some wonderful additional perks that photos cannot capture. 1. The cabin is the perfect blend of the original charm and modern comforts. All the authentic aesthetic of a by-gone-era and not one of the inconveniences. 2. Linens and towels were "real". By real, I mean what I would have in my own home; as were the furnishings. The bed and the couches were really comfortable. 3. The scent. I have never been in a vacation rental that had such a comforting smell. It was very subtle and did not overpower. It complemented the over-all ambiance. Never underestimate how much a scent can create or ruin a space; this cabin was perfection. I could go on and on with all the charming details I found in the outdoor spaces as well but I'll just say, I enjoyed every inch of it. After 3 wonderful nights, I felt like a new person, ready to take on the rest of 2020. I will certainly be returning here and am already looking forward to it! ***NOTE: If you have AT&T as your cellular provider, you will have no signal here.

"This property is wonderful! I knew it would be a cool experience with the animals, but it exceeded my expectations in every way. The cabin is exactly as pictured and is lovely. My husband and I commented that we immediately felt ‘settled in’ and comfortable within an hour, and normally that doesn’t happen so quickly when we travel. I could have relaxed on the front porch and just watched the farm for days. It was so peaceful. The owner, Mike, was responsive to all communications and was genuinely friendly while he shared about the animals and toured us around the farm. Holding a baby alpaca was a first for us. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in, and the fire pit was great. We didn’t eat out this trip, but the winery just across the street was great. We ordered eggs and sausage from the farm prior to our visit and they were waiting in the refrigerator at arrival. Both were so delicious we ordered more to take home. We will definitely visit again in the future! Thanks Mike for spending time with us and truly making it a memorable trip!"

"We had a wonderful time staying in the Barndominium. It is very well appointed and so cool to be right next to the baby Alpacas and their moms. Michael gave us a nice tour of all the animals (alpacas, llamas, goats, pigs, ducks, cows, chickens and ponies) and explained how all of these work together to make a self-sustaining farm. Even though you're on a working ranch, the super large TV and internet ensures you don't miss your creature comforts. It was nice to see beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the mountains and all the stars at night. We highly recommend this as a great place to unwind for a few days. It's quiet and you can enjoy the many local wineries or hiking nearby. Michael is more than happy to suggest spots of interest which was most appreciated. We will definitely be repeat guests."
