          Our experience at Rainbow Ranch could not have been more pleasant and enjoyable. Staff was friendly and efficient. Wonderful restaurant on premises where we enjoyed a delightful dinner. Scenery was breathtaking. Would have stayed longer if we had the time. Would highly recommend!

          The fireplace is a wood burning fireplace and they provide dry, chopped wood for you to use. There is a screen in front of the fireplace for safety and prevent coals from jumping out onto the floor.......
