Great extended family stay
The property was clean, beautiful, and spacious. We enjoyed the walking, swimming, grilling, and fire pit. It was a great space for the entire family.
Luxurious, rustic, and perfect for our big family.
We believe that Stonehaven was made for us. This year we were only 16 people. Last year we were 21. We still managed to occupy all of the houses, large and small and take advantage of the lovely pool area, even playing a raucous game of Washers on the lighted cement circles made for the purpose. We were there in August last year and October this year and this time some of us enjoyed long walks. We hope to gather at Stonehaven again.
The ranch house was beautiful and had all we needed. The other 3 smaller houses were beautiful and well appointed. We really enjoyed the ranch cats and long horn cattle! 2 issues: 1. written driving directions should be updated to state 5 miles to gate instead of 1 mile. Although I did receive a Google GPS link, it was very inconvenient for my other 10 guests. Updated written instructions are so much easier. 2. There is wifi at the ranch - really! The fact is the owners don't want to give visitors access. I'm ok with that answer. I didn't really pay attention to that small part of the WOW factor of this fabulous ranch. 2 of my guests needed wifi access. Alll of us could see wifi on our phones and see that the A/C was managed via wifi. When I asked for the password I received conflicting answers - 1st no response, then no wifi is available, then the owners want visitors to unplug. My arrival instructions didn't address wifi at all. There was nothing next to the words "WiFi". Please just explain the situation in the arrival instructions. I reserved the ranch months ago and completely forgot about the wifi details. I will definitely fo back to Stonehaven ranch if I have the opportunity. Well worth it!
We had a large reunion gathering and the property was great. Pool and houses were all in great shape and well-maintained. Only small complaint were the poor pillows in the bedrooms. We enjoyed it overall.
In the country
There were 18 of us visiting the property. The amenities were great although no wifi which can be good or bad - the kids had to find something else besides devices (ha-ha). That was no problem with the pool, bball court, washer/horseshoe pits and expanse of the property where you can set up a kickball game, croquet, etc. All the buildings/rooms were clean and had all the amenities. The bar area with fridge and ice maker is a big plus. The separate living area/sleeping area in the main house have enough separation and doors for privacy. There are essentially 3 kitchens were you can store food and cook (extra fridge in smaller kitchen). There are many seating areas to enjoy and the extra cooler outside is very handy. If you BBQ/grill, you won't be disappointed.
Minor quibbles: the kitchen got a little warm (had oven and cooktop on) but cracking a window and a small portable fan fixed that. I spent some time cleaning the pool only to see pool company coming later that day. The dining room won't fit more than 10 so we fed the kids first.
Bottom line: Fabulous property with plenty of space. Far out enough from town and major roads to feel like you're away. If you need to relax and enjoy some time off, this is good place for that. Everyone is looking forward to coming back.
Fantastic feedback! We welcome future guests to this amazing property.
Future Problem Solving
We loved our stay at Stonehaven Ranch. Some of the showers did not drain properly, but otherwise, it was amazing!
