We decided to go away for a few days for Thanksgiving. Our grandchildren are 2 and 4 1/2. We arrived at a beautifully maintained property staffed with friendly and helpful people. I read other reviews so I booked the second floor and also got adjoining rooms. We got to have our grandkids in our room every morning - what a...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 October 2016

Great place for a family getaway. Kids entertained themselves at this all-inclusive resort all day long. Horseback trail rides, mountain tubing, kayaks and paddleboats, bungee trampoline, rock wall, indoor waterslides and more. It's small enough that 10 and 12 year olds can wander around, but large enough that they never get bored. Staff is very helpful and happy to be...

My family fell in love with this family-owned and operated resort. We are fans of Mohonk Mountain House, but RHR has so much more for kids to do and is so down to earth and homey. We absolutely loved it here and are already getting a group of families to come back with us. We traveled with our three boys,...

Our warm welcome (like everyone's) started about 100 feet off the highway when we were greeted (while still in our car) by a happy and charming person who briefed us on the flow for check-in and parking. We chatted about the usual pleasantries but she did make one point perfectly clear...we were going to have a wonderful weekend. We walked...

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend between horseback riding, the slide, the haunted house, bon fire, entertainment and especially the staff who made everything so special. Even friends who are not riders tried out the trails and enjoyed all of the activites the ranch had to offer. We can't wait to come back!
