A relaxing getaway in a beautiful location!
The bunkhouse at Quail Valley Ranch was everything I had hoped it would be, and more! It's a small space, perfect for a couple to spend a weekend away from it all. The view from the bunkhouse was gorgeous, with rolling hills and grazing horses as far as the eye could see. The ranch is far enough away from any town to be quiet and peaceful (no traffic noise), but a short enough drive to nearby towns to not be inconvenient if you need to pick something up. The night sky is stunning, since there's no light pollution! We walked on some of the trails around the property, and every turn brought lots of beautiful sights and interesting plant life. We didn't see any wildlife during our stay, but we saw lots of animal prints on the trails as we walked. Privacy was not a big concern at the bunkhouse, as the owners left us to our own devices after we checked in. The only regular visitors we had were the sweet dogs, who occasionally stopped to say hello during their patrols of the ranch, and an orange cat that meandered around. If you stay, please make sure to drive to Shadow Run Vineyard and Winery, which is just a mile down the road. They are a small vineyard, and you will taste some delicious wines. My boyfriend and I had never done a wine tasting before, and Les made us feel relaxed and comfortable about the new experience. We can't wait to book another stay in the Rustic Bunkhouse!
