This place was great! We enjoyed getting away from electronics and experiencing nature and animals and FAMILY. The staff is friendly, especially Jaffar in the main kitchen and Brian the barn manager. The breakfast is a must, whether you ride a horse or the carriage. It was delicious and beautiful! We brought our dog which made it so convenient for...

We were staying in the Dells and were looking for a place off the beaten path. After reading reviews of other places, this sounded the best. It did not dissapoint. Staff was extremely friendly and it was clear the animals were treated very well. After a short lesson for the kids, we were off for a peaceful ride through the...

We didn't know what to expect, we enjoyed every moment of our 2 day stay. We went early in the season and had beautiful weather to enjoy the scenery and all the horses. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. we will definitely return to experience all the other activities as well as more horseback riding.

We've been to Woodside in the past and looked forward to returning to unwind after the holidays. The staff is as friendly as ever and we felt at home right away. We enjoyed a few of the horseback rides and nice conversations with Dan in the tavern. All of the wranglers are terrific and are very patient if you haven't...

My whole family loves Woodside Ranch. I've also been taking groups of clients there for retreats and everyone has had a wicked good time. The staff is excellent, the property is beautiful and their horses are steady. The wranglers help make riders of any experience level feel comfortable on the ride.

The staff are exceptional in their desire to please and make your stay the most enjoyable. There are a variety of cabins and main house lodging. Cabins have fireplaces and there is a large supply of firewood. I particularly enjoyed the food--thank you Jaffir, and the horseback riding, great gentle horses that are well cared for and not overused. Excellent...

Just returned from a 4 day stay at Woodside with my 12 year old granddaughter and her friend. We all had a great time. We rode everyday, sometimes all 6 rides! If you weren't riding, we were in the pool or eating or sleeping. We all had our favorite horses. The Wranglers and entertainment staff and cooks were awesome! Fun...

Do you love horses? Do you want to ride multiple times a day? Woodside Ranch definitely fit the bill for me and my daughter. We were on a horse within an hour of arriving.
