I have just come back from a weekend away with 3 families staying at Green Hill Ranch. First off - ignore the recommendations for doing anything outside the property. There is so much there we left feeling disappointed we didn't have enough time to check everything out. From tug-of-war, to sack racing, to badminton, to tennis, to spring board diving, billiards, backgammon, fruit picking, horse shoes. . . the list goes on. They really have thought of every possible way of keeping a large multi-age group entertained.
The house itself feels like a time warp - but with everything you could need. The kitchen has every gadget - there's even an ice cream maker.
In renting the place Anthony was attentive and helpful. Terry the onsite property manager was helpful and invisible at the same time.
Over the past few years our group have rented in Sonoma - the various properties have been considerably more expensive and half as fun.
It's also worth pointing out that the pool is gated. We had a few youngsters with us and we felt more than happy to let them roam. We did need to move some of the decorative items in the house out of the reach of little hands - just in case.
Overall it was a blast and we are already booked in for 2015.
