Because I use TripAdvisor so religiously, I felt compelled to add my belated two cents about DWR. Our family of five vacationed there a couple of summers ago, and it was an amazing experience. All the glowing reviews are accurate -- the horses, the staff, the food, the scenery were all wonderful. And right on cue, all three of our...

We went to DWR to let our 6 year old son experience something very different than his Florida lifestyle. We planned to go once. For the next 12 years we never missed a June trip to "the ranch". My sons first time living away from home was spent working at the ranch as part of the staff and we knew...

Thanks for the great review! We are assuming it is coming from the Gordon family since we noticed Tequesta, FL in your profile. We look forward to seeing your family and grandkids in the future (a new generation coming to the ranch!).

My family has been coming here for over 45 years now with three generations of family enjoying the scenery and ranch style fun. We have had a family reunion here in 1998 and it was just wonderful. In 2011 my wife and I returned at age 55 and we enjoyed it just as much. The riding, rafting, square dancing and...

The best darn dude ranch on the face of the earth. Randi Sue, Ken, Greta, Justin and Ryan go out of their way to be sure that each and every guest has a spectacular time. Guest are divided into riding goods to fit experience and interests. Highlight of the week was a day long ride with Randi Sue and Justin,...

We went to DWR in 2010 so that I could fulfil a dream of riding western style on a real ranch even at my advanced age of 67. We both enjoyed it so much (my wife is a dedicated non-rider) that we went again 2011. It was such a joy to meet up with the Foshas who are exceptional people...

I went to this ranch Labor Day week 2011. I'm from NYC and this was my first solo trip. What a great time I had! The staff was unbelievably friendly, rooms very cozy and clean, horses were very well cared for, food was great. I wanted to do more riding than the usual slow trail rides and I got this...

For a family who don't ride, our friends thought we were mad to book a week on a ranch! I can't recommend the experience enough. From the friendly welcome, personal attention, riding lessons, well kept horses, beautiful grounds and fabulous home-cooked food. Everybody was so friendly! Our cabin was clean and perfectly adequate with nice little touches like an upturned...

The ranch was a great place to get away from the usual technology filled world and just relax. The wranglers were helpful, patient and lots of fun to go on rides with! The square dancing event and the campfires were great and provided fun for both kids and adults. Being in nature and just seeing the breathtaking views was worth...

Our diverse little group's age range was 12 to 89. Everyone had a great time and wants to return next year. The accomodations are basic but clean and pleasant. Great sleeping conditions. We all enjoyed the food. Again, it's not fancy but it was good. Our skittish 12 year old was hesitant about riding. After receiving personal attention, she was...
