A couple of my friends, our pets and I spent 2 nights at the Linden Ranch. We stayed in the Buffalo Lodge and just loved it! The staff were top notch - very welcoming, warm and they provided wonderful service. We particularly enjoyed the riding and hot tub just before bed. My dog Lucy made great friends with the other 3 dogs on the property, and she may have terrorized a chicken or two, but all came out okay :) The food was really good - fresh and acquired by local farmers. The only negative is that the stay was too short. We hope to be back soon for a longer visit. Thank you Bruce and Megi for such a lovely weekend and for going the extra mile by surprising me with a birthday cake and joining us for the sing along at the end of the night. It was magic!

Me, my wife and my pet spent two weeks at Linden Tree and shared in the Ranch memories, experiences and love. When the beautiful time was almost over, we felt so good that we decided to stay extra days, so I canceled my appointments and we spent extra valuable time in the exceptional nature that surrounds this unique place. I have traveled all the world, but the energy, the family setting of this place, and the lovely owners are outstanding to make you forget the fast external world and live instead our time each second that counts. We live in Budapest, we already miss Linden Tree, the ranch and the positive energy of Velika Plana. We plan already our next visit. This is life.

When we asked our 5-years old daughter what she liked the most during our stay, she replied with a big smile on her face, "Playing with Wonder (medium-sized, adorable dog) in the snow!" For us, a bit older "kids, "everything on Linden tree ranch was a wonder... To say that the accommodation was perfect, food extraordinary, staff too nice, horse riding and wagon ride on the snow exhilarating would be all correct, but a pale version of our experience. The year 2020 we left behind was peculiar, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to open a new one with such an overwhelming weekend. Dear Bruce and dear Megi, thank you for Wonder-Full two days; we do hope to see you soon, to see how your enchanted ranch breathes in spring! Ira, Damjan & Ivona

Linden Tree is a wonderful spot up in the Mountains of Croatia where time slows down and nature and tradition are everywhere. Only a 2.5 hour drive from Split, this sanctuary is a great respite from the heat of the coast and here in the mountains, even in Summer, there are cool nights and comfortable days. We stayed in the Casitas which are lovely and look brand new. The beds are large and comfortable, and the shower is powerful. The wonderful hosts provide plenty to do with activities each day, but have scheduled things so that there is also plenty of time to relax or explore. The food we had here at Linden Tree is some of the best we have had in Croatia! And so much food! It’s a bountiful feast for lunch and dinner each day. Maggie is such an excellent chef she should be awarded a Micheline Star. All the ingredients are fresh and her cooking is healthy ensuring even when you eat too much of it you still feel good. I am a vegetarian and Maggie went out of her way to prepare special dishes for me at each meal, everyone one of them better than the last. Hence, I would highly recommend this destination as Friendly For Vegetarian Travelers. I truly appreciated all the effort she put into accommodating my diet with such flair and great flavor. Linden Tree is a unique experience in Croatia; fun for friends or family!

My ten year old daughter and I came in the middle of Winter to Linden Tree Resort and it was absolutely beautiful (cant wait to return and see the place in the other seasons) - we enjoyed the silence, the fog, nature in wintersleep, the energy of this place in the very special velebit-area, of course the horse-riding, sitting infront of the fire, bathing in the hot tub under the stars, sleeping and eating so well. Its not so easy to describe our experience at the Ranch, the weekend-trip turned into a real journey, an adventure for both of us...- it can only be experienced! So glad I drove all the way to see my daughter galloping so brave and freely. "It's magic", she said. So glad I met Bruce & Meggi.
