The bison overlook is a great place for animal lovers! We thoroughly enjoyed feeding the animals. The house has everything you need to have an awesome vacation in the mountains. She even left smore's ingredients for my family and I.

We had wonderful time! The children were really excited to see all of the animals--running back and forth from the cabin to check in on the goats (especially the baby goat)! It was a very peaceful and enjoyable experience! Recommend it to anyone who needs a wonderful, safe, fun place to stay!

This was great for a family trip to the mountains. The kids enjoyed the "farm" part of the ranch, and we all loved the cabin - hot tub on the deck with a mountain view, game room in the basement, fire pit next to the goats and mini horses, comfortable rooms. The area is not at all touristy, which was perfect for us. We had what we needed nearby but without the tacky stuff. It is within 30-70 mins drive to all the places we wanted to explore, and we even stayed home our first day and had a blast. This would be great for family reunions as there are other cabins on the property. The only hesitation I have is that the mountain roads are a little nerve-wracking for city folks like us; I probably would not want to come in the winter, though it is no doubt beautiful.

Great cabin, very homey feel. We had everything we needed from beds, towels, and amenities. Our cabin backed up to the mini horses and goats who would come up and say hi at our fence line. Super cool!

My brothers & my husband had shared a vision of expanding my fathers buffalo ranch when additional property became available to purchase. With all our knowledge & experiences combine we have built 3 log homes & have been renting them out since 2004. All the furniture in this cabin has been handmade by the wood on the property! Even the covered wagon bed, that was custom built my my father. Once my husband retires from the US Army in about 8 yrs our dream will be to build our log cabin on the property & be more hands on. God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. We hope you love the mountains like we have all come to love being transplants from a very flat NY!
