Chalk Valley Ranch
We had a spectacular Christmas stay at this ranch! The ranch hand, WC, was very friendly and helpful, He took us on a hayride around the property which included feeding the zebras, llamas, deer, donkeys, horses, and other animals. The Grandkids loved it!! He brought us lots of wood for the large, wonderful fire place, and was available for whatever we needed. We visited the rough creek lodge which had a great place for children, including pony rides, The House was very family friendly. We cooked almost every meal there. The kitchen was well supplied. Jeff Kaye was Very helpful, too. Thank you, thank you! Rick and Vikki DeSoto ”
