I do not know who had a better time, us, the grandparents or the grandsons. We were so surprised how clean and updated this resort is. And how special and rare that this is family owned. The activities, the food, we had a wonderful time. Our boys could not wait to tell their

Is this for all ages, I have a 17 and 14 year old, are they too old?
That would be the max age for them. The horse back riding is great, indoor pool is nice but small, food is great, We took our 7 yr old grandson and he was busy doing thing all day. My 22 yr old daughter came along and she enjoyed the riding etc. The evening entertainment was good but geared to 12 & under in my opinion

Is there much difference between staying in the main lodge versus the Oklahoma lodge? We are a family of 5.
I stayed in Oklahoma on a girls winter weekend. It’s a few steps to the main lodge. I stayed in the main lodge this summer. We were 8 adults and kids. It was convenient but the activities are all over the property so it really doesn’t matter. Hope this helps. Bottom line is it’s a great place!

How long is the average stay? We would be driving 9 hours to get there. Is two nights enough? Also, would the food be included on our last day? I was told we could check out but stay for the day.
We stayed two nights, which I think was plenty. I'm not sure when you're going but the two times we were there it was Spring. We arrived mid-morning the first day of our stay. The ranch holds your bags while you can enjoy all the facilities. (They'll text you when the room is ready.) We wanted to swim so I packed swimming suits separately so we could enjoy the pool. Locker rooms are below the indoor pool. We had a great time....for my daughter and me: no cooking! for the kids so many activities! There are the usual "game rooms" and a couple of activities that are available for a nominal fee. We handled it by giving each child a reasonable amount of money so they could enjoy some of those. The only other thing...if you are in the main lodge and a light sleeper you might want to consider an upstairs room. We were below and 1 night was fine but the next night we had to call the front desk to make them aware of the problem. great time. Everyone except one grumpy teen who must have been having a bad day was helpful, courteous and friendly. Last thing...lunch is included on your last day but you need to check out. Again we packed what we needed for the day separately and left later in the afternoon. Enjoy!

What will the activities that continue to run during Christmas period ?
I am also not sure on specific Christmas time activities but we went in February and they made snow for tubing and skiing. They also have an indoor play area. We stayed two nights and definitively did not do all the activities offered.

I have a 14 and 11 year old. I’m worried that for the cost this isn’t the right trip for them . Anyone have an opinion on teens at RHR? Thanks
RHR is terrific. A huge part of it is the horseback riding. I would look somewhere else that offers amenities you can use.
