Wow. What a gorgeous place. Sorry to see they've allowed a few trailers and an ugly yurt to clutter up the beautiful scenery. We will return for an overnight stay and horseback riding.

GO AGAIN? Yes. This is a wonderful setting and conference center. We enjoyed walking around the gift shop, library, Ghost House, maze and children's play area. Now, we want to go to a conference.

Took a sunset horseback tour, which was awesome. Small museums there are worth visiting. Would like to return for one of the many retreats/seminars.
