Upon stepping into the Country Ranch House's charming interior, peering through the windows of each room and then walking around the outside of the house, a feeling came over me like I had died and gone to heaven!

The house itself is decorated with such meticulous thought and supplied with everything anyone could possibly need to dine in if so desired. The Country Ranch House more than met my expectations Big Time.

After unpacking, my husband John gestured to me to look out the window to the right of the easy chair I was relaxing in. There was a beautiful chestnut-colored horse hanging his head right over the fence just a few yards away. What an amazing sight for me!

My husband and I enjoy sitting outside in the evening on our El Dorado Hills patio which is backed by a large oak-filled greenbelt; but the Ranch House was a truly incredible change of pace for us.

Our stay at the Country Ranch House was super enjoyable. There was so much we wanted to see and do within a 10 mile radius that there was no way we could have possibly squeezed it all in this time around.

Looks like we'll just have to come back next year and "hang out" for TWO weeks at one of Horseman's Hangout's two lovely vacation rentals!

Thanks again, Marcia & Brian, for everything.

It was such a relaxing, peaceful and beautiful place. The owners are amazingly hospitable, kind and helpful and it is a wonderful place to get away, relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. My wife and five daughters all loved it and can't wait to go back again. Would recommend it to anyone!

Can't thank you enough for the use of the cottage. We explored Santa Ynez. the Santa Rita Hills Los Olivos Solvang - we wine tasted at Brander & Curtis.

The weather was spectacular for the 4 days.

My mom June 82 from Scotland couldn't believe this weather. (Scotland is wet and damp right now.

Maggie our retriever enjoyed the back and side yard.

Thanks so much again. We will see you soon as this is our favorite get away spot.
